On cholesterol meds? Then CoQ10 is your new best friend!

Wednesday, May 1, 2019
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like substance found in every energy-producing cell of the human body.

It plays a major role in the production of energy with its part in the manufacturing of adenosine triphosphate – the molecule that stores all the energy you need to do everything you need to do. This is especially the case for your heart – it helps this organ beat more than 100,000 times each day.

CoQ10 provides your cells with the energy they need to digest food, heal wounds and help maintain healthy muscles.

If you’re on cholesterol meds, you need to know about CoQ10!

Having high cholesterol can cause fatty deposits in your blood vessels and increase your chance of experiencing problems with your heart and cardiovascular system. Cholesterol medication is prescribed to lower your cholesterol level – it does this by inhibiting your body’s internal production of cholesterol.

However, at the same time these drugs inhibit your body’s production of CoQ10. In fact, numerous studies have demonstrated that cholesterol medication can lower the amount of CoQ10 in your blood in as-little-as three months.

Some of the common side effects of cholesterol medication are muscle fatigue and pain, as-well-as depleted energy levels, so supplementing with CoQ10 can assist in replenishing the level of CoQ10 in your blood.

Lighthouse CoQ10 350mg is a great option for those of you who need additional  CoQ10 in your body to support with symptoms of cholesterol medication, energy levels and the health of your cardiovascular system.

CoQ10 350mg also contains vitamin D3 to provide additional health benefits. This vitamin is a powerhouse for your heart, with studies showing it can help to support your endothelium – the thin layer of tissue that lines the blood vessels within your vascular system.

    

Always read the label and take as directed. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare professional. Lighthouse Health Distributors Limited, Hamilton.
