Statin medications are used to reduce cholesterol levels. In doing so, they also eliminate coenzyme Q10 in our body, which we need for the manufacture and utilisation of energy by our cells. For some people, using Statin medication may contribute to muscle fatigue and tiredness. Taking a natural product like Clinicians Statin Support to replace depleted nutrients, alongside prescribed medication, is a positive interaction between pharmaceutical medication and natural supplements.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential cofactor for the manufacture and utilisation of energy (or ATP) by the mitochondria, the body’s energy producing cells. Heart, liver and skeletal muscle cells have a high requirement for CoQ10. CoQ10 exhibits antioxidant activity, support overall energy production and helps protect cell membranes from free radical damage the contributes to the aging process.
CoQ10 is synthesised in the body but, tissue levels decline with age. Supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for cardiovascular health, blood sugar balance, energy levels, the nervous system and healthy teeth. Certain medications such as Statins (cholesterol-lowering medication) may deplete CoQ10 levels. Symptoms of CoQ10 depletion include muscle fatigue, and burning. It is essential that CoQ10 levels be restored as soon as possible in these individuals.
