  • by

If you have to take statins, but you’re experiencing statin side effects—you may want to try this. 

Going to talk about statins okay it is very very   essential for you to understand this information  now statins work by blocking a certain enzyme   that blocks your production of cholesterol your  liver cells make a good amount of cholesterol   in your body so the cholesterol in your body is  not just coming from the diet it’s

Coming from   your own cells and it has some very important  purposes number one it’s a precursor for making   bile salts which is involved in digesting fats  absorbing fat cypo vitamins like vitamin a   e d k omega 3 fatty acids etc etc cholesterol  so if you don’t have enough bile salts your risks  for gall stones go up

Your risk for pancreatitis   that’s going to block the pancreatic ducts   and causing a back up into the pancreas so there’s  so many side effects of statin but the big one   is myopathy now that’s a gentle term for muscle  disease because statins have a direct effect   the muscle which basically kills the muscle  

They can cause muscle cell apoptosis which is  another term for the muscle cells dying you can   in the muscle stiffness in the muscle and even  an autoimmune condition of the muscle as well   another side effect is high levels of something  called creatinine kinase which indicates muscle   wasting and that can increase by 10x now

There’s  also the topic of why your cholesterol is high   in the first place and let’s say it even goes up  is there any problem with having high cholesterol   i’m going to leave that for another video but in  this video i want to talk to the person who’s on   statins and what you can do to reduce the symptoms  of myopathy

Now there’s something else that   called coq10 it’s an enzyme involved in giving   at the healthy store mainly for heart problems   again a problem in the muscle um heart failure and  the list goes on and on and on so the more statin   you take the more deficient in coq10 you’re going  to be and it just happens that if you

Take coq10   you can greatly diminish the symptoms of myopathy  when someone’s on a statin drug so this video is   mainly about those people that are taking statins  that apparently for some reason have to take it   they’re getting side effects and they might not  know how simple it is to relieve the complications  

From this medication so start taking coenzyme q10  and if i were you i would double or triple the   dosage if you’re taking the statin and as you’re  coping with statins i would highly recommend you   also learn more about cholesterol how to keep it  in check and what diet you need to be on if you’re   new to my channel i put
