But you are much more likely to be impacted by a hidden danger that is not detailed on the warning label. And your doctor, in his or her rush to see the next patient, may have simply neglected to warn you.
In the next few minutes, I’ll make sure you understand this hidden danger, and more importantly, the simple solution that can boost your energy, mood and brain power, while providing powerful support for your heart.
My name is Joshua Corn and I’m the Editor-in-Chief of the Live in the Now newsletter, one of the fastest growing natural health publications in the nation. My passion for natural health always drives me to seek the truth and to educate people on alternative health solutions that are safe and effective.
Statins Deplete a Vital Nutrient Your Body Needs
It is widely known that statins severely deplete your body’s natural levels of CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is very dangerous. A Columbia University study found that within 30 days, your levels of CoQ10 can be decreased by half.
Not only does CoQ10 help your heart, it boosts cellular energy throughout your entire body and fights fatigue. In addition, CoQ10 helps to reduce muscle pain and weakness, which are the most commonly reported side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs.
CoQ10 Is Fuel for Your Heart
Your heart, which beats about 100,000 times a day to get its job done, is fueled by CoQ10 which is why so many studies have shown that it confers powerful protection for your entire cardiovascular system. When your heart has the high levels of CoQ10 it needs, it works like a charm. But when levels get low, your heart strains to do its job, and ultimately your entire body suffers. Suboptimal heart function can result in the “mystery symptoms” that so many of us experience as we get older such as fatigue, pain and decreases in mental functions. The fact is, if you have health problems that seemingly won’t go away, CoQ10 may be the natural solution you’ve been looking for.
By Age 50, Your CoQ10 Levels May Be Critically Low
According to leading experts on the cutting edge of natural health, it’s critical to supplement with CoQ10 as you age. After the age of 30, natural levels of CoQ10 begin to diminish. By the age of 50, your CoQ10 levels may be too low to support optimal heart function, and by age 70, your levels can become so low they can actually accelerate aging. Age aside, further loss of CoQ10 may be caused by stress, illness or the use of statins or other medications.
In fact, the very WORST culprit is statin drugs. It’s now estimated that 1 in 3 adults over 50 take a statin. That’s right — statins literally suck the CoQ10 right out of your body. Meanwhile, few doctors warn patients that by taking a statin to “help” their heart, they are in fact slowly draining it of the very fuel it needs for optimal health! This is a crying shame in my opinion, since so many people’s hearts are needlessly being jeopardized at the hands of their own doctors.
Why You Need the Right CoQ10 Right Now
I can tell you firsthand that once you start taking the right kind of CoQ10, you’ll know it without a doubt. You’ll experience massive boosts in your mood, energy and brainpower, profound relief from everyday aches and pains, better heart health — even better looking skin! The fact is, the majority of people over age 45 are critically deficient in CoQ10, so you really need to be taking an effective, highly absorbable CoQ10 supplement if you want to stay active and healthy as you age.
The Supplement Industry’s DIRTY Secret
You can find CoQ10 supplements virtually everywhere. And unfortunately, most people are tricked into thinking all CoQ10 is the same. But there’s a dirty little secret that they won’t tell you on the label. All of the research supporting the benefits of CoQ10 has been conducted with natural CoQ10. But most supplements are made with synthetic CoQ10.
Worse yet, guess what synthetic CoQ10 is synthesized from? Believe it or not,tobacco leaves are the primary source! This synthetic junk is called the “cis” form, and there is absolutely no good data out there proving its effectiveness or safety. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to put anything in my body that’s used to make cigarettes.
You might be surprised, but 100% natural CoQ10, known as the “trans” form, is usually no more expensive then synthetic CoQ10 — you just need to know how to look for it. It’s easy if you follow my simple “cheat sheet.”
How to “Read Between the Lines”
Discount brands, such as those found in drugstores or big box retailers, take advantage of labeling requirement loopholes, and do a great job hiding the source of their CoQ10. Don’t fall victim to their cost-cutting.
Here’s my foolproof guide that will prevent you from being scammed:
Got Health Problems That Won’t Go Way?
I’ve read hundreds of CoQ10 studies from around the world, and it’s been confirmed time and time again that CoQ10 is amazingly safe and well tolerated by the human body. There appears to be no toxicity whatsoever, even at very high levels, and it has virtually no side effects.[8,9,10] Also, it doesn’t make you jittery or upset your stomach, and it doesn’t conflict with any other medications or supplements.
What it does do is nothing short of a health miracle:
