Taking a Statin to Lower Cholesterol?
Statins are very effective in removing cholesterol, but they also reduce the availability of ubiquinol in your heart
Cholesterol is a fatty compound found in the fats in your blood and is an important component of human health, but high levels of cholesterol in blood are linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Doctors prescribe statin drugs to help lower cholesterol. Statin medications work by inhibiting your body's production of cholesterol. However, statins are indiscriminate and also remove ubiquinol and a host of other essential nutrients and vitamins.
According to pharmacist and Drug Muggers author Suzy Cohen, in addition to statin drugs, "There are over 200 medications that can reduce CoQ10 levels in the body, among them estrogen hormones, diabetic and blood pressure medications and acid reflux drugs. The deficiency can cause what looks like a new 'disease' such as fibromyalgia pain, fatigue, leg cramps, spasms, memory loss, or liver problems."
CoQ10 is one of the most popular heart health supplements used by people taking statin medications to lower their cholesterol. Studies have shown that Kaneka Ubiquinol® is the best way to restore healthy levels of CoQ10.
