Think cholesterol-reducing medications are protecting your vital organs (ie: heart, brain, liver, kidneys, lungs)? Although statins like Lipitor, Crestor, and Zocar are reducing cholesterol, what medical science is not telling you is that statins cause serious nutritional deficiencies – CoenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) deficiency is most commonly noted. A loss of CoQ10 in the body is first recognized in the heart, because the heart has high energy needs. Some people may experience heart muscle weakness, heart failure and even chronic fatigue.
Other deficiencies include a loss in vitamin D, which can cause sore muscles, in addition to deficiencies in B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, folic acid, phosphorous, vitamin A, B-12, vitamin E, vitamin K, and zinc.
Americans are concerned about bad cholesterol; but are they forgetting that good cholesterol is necessary for optimal health? Cholesterol works to digest and absorb healthy fats, nutrients and vitamins. It is also an integral part of the cell membranes in every living cell. 50% of the brain is made up of cholesterol – no wonder the FDA released a new warning last year that statins could cause memory loss!
About MitoQ Supplements
If your doctor requires you to take a statin to protect yourself from bad cholesterol, supplementation is a good alternative to reduce the side effects of statins. After extensive research and evaluation, Dr. Tang recommends MitoQ, the best form of CoQ10 for his patients. MitoQ will harness the body’s own repair system and improve overall cell, organ and whole body health and can actually reverse or prevent the occurrence of side effects.
Unlike standard forms of CoQ10, MitoQ is a third generation CoQ that has solved the challenge of bioavailability. MitoQ has a positively-charged ion attached to the CoQ molecule, making it water-soluble and rapidly absorbed from the intestine. It also readily passes through other biological membranes including the blood-brain barrier. MitoQ is able to reach concentrations hundreds of times higher than in the rest of the cell, something no other CoQ10 formulation comes close to. As a result, only a very small dose is required, approximately 10 to 20 mg.
