Statin Drugs vs. CoQ10: Putting You in Danger
Statin medications (i.e. Lipitor, Crestor and Zocor), which are used to reduce high cholesterol, also happen to deplete the production of one of the most important nutrients in the body: Co-enzyme Q10.

This is something you need to take seriously if you're on a statin regimen.

Taking a statin medication without supplementing CoQ10 can cause fatal cardiomyopathy, heart attack, congestive heart failure, exhaustion and high blood pressure.

Dr. Holly Lucille explains the connection between this powerful nutrient and statin medications, as well as how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
