CoQ10 Why we need it.
CoQ10 (coenzyme Q 10) 100 mg
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a powerful antioxidant produced by the body that is needed for energy production in the cell. Maintaining adequate CoQ10 levels is critical for maintaining a healthy supply of energy. Statin users are strongly encouraged to consider supplementing with CoQ10 since statin drugs may lower blood levels of this important nutrient.
The body’s primary source of CoQ10 is the supply it produces naturally. However, CoQ10 levels decrease with age so as we get older, supplementation with CoQ10 becomes very important.
The most popular cholesterol drugs in the world seem to increase insulin levels. However, that's just one mechanism by which these drugs can raise your risk for diabetes. Statins also suppresses your natural Coenzyme Q10; it makes energy for every cell in your body, and it's produced mainly in your liver. CoQ10 also maintains blood glucose. When you deplete levels of CoQ10 by taking a statin drug you lose that benefit.
