Statins and CoQ10
The majority of people who take statins are unaware of their need for CoQ10, and physicians rarely advise their patients to take this supplement along with their statins. It's also important to supplement right from the start to help avoid debilitating side effects.Learn more.
Lifestyle is Still the Key to Lowering Cholesterol
Statins are not a license to ignore the underlying cause of your condition. Unfortunately, many people think that once they are on a statin drug, they can eat an unhealthy diet because they are "protected" from bad cholesterol. Lifestyle changes are essential for reducing your risk of heart disease, whether you take a statin or not. Lifestyle changes you should consider making include:
- Quitting smoking
- Eating a healthy diet that's low in fat, cholesterol and salt
- Exercising 30 minutes a day on most days of the week
If you're following the recommended lifestyle behaviors above, but your cholesterol — particularly your low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") cholesterol — remains high (over 300), statins might be an option for you.
