Mark asks,
"What else can I do for my overall health?"
For the patient taking a statin, consider Ubiquinol

Possible Recommendations:

  • Keep up a healthy diet and regular exercise
  • Continue to monitor high cholesterol and treat appropriately
  • Evaluate strategies to reduce stress
  • Consider Ubiquinol to support optimal heart health and replenish CoQ10 levels1-8

Cholesterol-lowering statins can significantly lower the amount of CoQ10 (ubiquinone) in the blood4-7

  • Statins can lower the amount of CoQ10 in the blood, even when a patient has taken a standard dose for as few as 3 months9
    • Ubiquinol has been shown to replenish depleted levels of CoQ10 from statin medication use10,11

Mark:
"I already take a multivitamin—do I need to add Ubiquinol?"

Ubiquinol is not in multivitamins

  • Ubiquinol is delivered via softgels (it is fat-soluble, not water-soluble)
  • Ubiquinol is more readily absorbed in the body and is more bioavailable than conventional CoQ1012-14
  • Ubiquinol is the only form of CoQ10 that functions as an antioxidant15
