Statin drugs is best known as drugs that lower cholesterol; statins have several other beneficial effects that may also improve cardiac risk.  Some of the most common drugs are:

There are other side affects from statin drugs ranging from:

  • Nausea
  • Upset Stomach
  • Muscle Aches
  • Increase risk of cancer
  • Headache
  • Memory and Cognitive Loss

Another important fact to consider is that if you are on a statin, you should take a CoQ10 sublingual supplement as the statin depletes it. CoQ10 is essential in energy metabolism of cells, and a lower level of CoQ10 may cause muscle cramps or fatigue. Not all CoQ10 is the same. Only 10% of capsules are absorbed in the stomach, so quality and form matters.

Know that there are many natural options that are available that are very affective in lower cholesterol naturally.
