Ubiquinol depleting Statins

 

Australia has the third highest use of cholesterol-lowering medications in the developed world.1

Statin drugs are the most common class of cholesterol-lowering medications. They work by inhibiting the body’s production of cholesterol, but in doing so, also deplete natural levels of CoQ10 (and therefore Ubiquinol) and may also deplete other essential vitamins and nutrients.

Since CoQ10 and cholesterol are both synthesised from the same substance – mevalonate – statin drugs that inhibit the formation of cholesterol have been shown to also inhibit the body’s synthesis of CoQ10.2 In fact, the use of statins can decrease the body’s synthesis of CoQ10 by as much as 40 percent.3

The most common side effect of statins is muscle pain. Studies have shown that statin-induced deficiency of CoQ10 may be related to muscle pain.4-6

CoQ10 and Ubiquinol are commonly recommended heart health supplements used by those taking statin medications to help increase levels of CoQ10 and Ubiquinol in the body.
