The Statin Story

Elderly people are more likely to be medicated with CoQ10 depleting medications. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (i.e. statins) are widely used to manage elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. While effective at inhibiting hepatic cholesterol synthesis, statin medications may also inhibit endogenous CoQ10 production due to the effect of statins on the shared biosynthetic pathways. This may result in a number of side-effects – the most notable of which being muscle fatigue.2 Doses of just 100 mg of CoQ10 per day have been found to be effective in attenuating statin-induced CoQ10 depletion without adversely affecting the lipid lowering capacity of the medication.9 If your patient is medicated with statins, beta blockers, oral contraceptives, or even certain antidiabetic medications, consider Enhanced Bioavailability Coenzyme Q10 100 mg, which provides 100 mg CoQ10 per capsule in an Ensorb™ base to ensure increased absorption and optimal results for your patient.
