CoQ10 and Your Heart

If you’ve been diagnosed with high cholesterol, then you’re probably on a statin. Did you know that statins deplete the body of CoQ10?

CoQ10 is essential to maintain muscle health, especially the heart muscle! It provides energy so that your cells can function. Statins are not the only drugs to affect the heart — there are specific chemotherapy drugs that target the heart as a side effect. These effects can put you at risk for five years after you’ve completed your treatment. CoQ10 as well as some other herbal remedies can help protect your heart so you’re not at risk for those delayed side effects.
