What to Take With Statins

posted by acunningham

coq.jpgIf you or a loved one are on a cholesterol-lowering prescription drug, note that Dr. Andrew Weil recommends Co-enzyme Q10 as a dietary supplement. He discusses this in his newsstand magazine “Dr. Andrew Weil’s Self Healing Guide to Lowering Cholesterol” which I just purchased. He writes:

Consider taking Co-enzyme Q10 if you are on a statin because the drug can lower levels of this heart-healthy compound. In a recent small study, supplementing with CoQ10 reduced minor muscle pain from statin drugs in 85 percent of study participants.

Dr. Weil wholeheartedly recommends 60 to 90 mg. a day of the softgel form of CoQ10, which is the kind best absorbed by the body.
Chances are great your elderly relatives seeing mainstream physicians don’t know this. Co-enzyme Q10 is widely available in health food stores now.

Many of the Blood pressure pills can also lower CoQ10. The Pharmacist is really the best person to consult on this. Blessings

Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer."
