Dear Health Conscious Reader,
If you are taking a cholesterol-lowering statin drug such as Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor or Pravachol and want to maintain a vigorous, active lifestyle, then I have important news to share with you today.
When blood tests reveal high LDL cholesterol levels, doctors tend to reflexively reach for their prescription pad for the “quick-fix” mainstream medicine solution — statin drugs.
And while it is true that in many cases, these statins produce lower LDL cholesterol readings, many experts now agree that they may actually do more harm than good. Statins come with a long list of side effects that range from annoying to debilitating, yet unfortunately, too many doctors never even mention these dangers.
This list of side effects includes:
- Muscle pain and weakness
- Difficulty sleeping
- Nausea and vomiting
- Diarrhea and constipation
- Memory loss and confusion
- Liver and kidney problems
- Permanent nerve damage
- Increased risk of type 2 diabetes
But you are much more likely to be impacted by a hidden danger that is not detailed on the warning label. And your doctor, in his or her rush to see the next patient, may have simply neglected to warn you.
In the next few minutes, I’ll make sure you understand this hidden danger, and more importantly, the simple solution that can boost your energy, mood and brain power, while providing powerful support for your heart.

Statins Deplete a Vital Nutrient Your Body Needs
It is widely known that statins severely deplete your body’s natural levels of CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is very dangerous. A Columbia University study found that within 30 days, your levels of CoQ10 can be decreased by half.
Not only does CoQ10 help your heart, it boosts cellular energy throughout your entire body and fights fatigue. In addition, CoQ10 helps to reduce muscle pain and weakness, which are the most commonly reported side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
CoQ10 Is Fuel for Your Heart
Your heart, which beats about 100,000 times a day to get its job done, is fueled by CoQ10 which is why so many studies have shown that it confers powerful protection for your entire cardiovascular system. When your heart has the high levels of CoQ10 it needs, it works like a charm. But when levels get low, your heart strains to do its job, and ultimately your entire body suffers. Suboptimal heart function can result in the “mystery symptoms” that so many of us experience as we get older such as fatigue, pain and decreases in mental functions. The fact is, if you have health problems that seemingly won’t go away, CoQ10 may be the natural solution you’ve been looking for.
