I heard this product was good for folks taking statins, so I sent some to my Dad who was complaining about having no energy and muscle pains. After about a week he called thanking me for "giving him his life back"! I had no idea how much he was suffering on a day-to-day basis because we live 1,500 miles apart, but he finally told me how bad it got after taking the statin for about 6 months. He had no energy to do the normal things he did every day, and had a lot of muscle pain in his arms and chest. All of this really ticked him off as he had always been healthy before this. He's always been the outdoors, work hard, do-it-yourself kind of guy. Now he's good-to-go and he thanks me again every time we talk and tells me he takes it every day. I'm glad I finally had a chance to help him, instead of the other way around!.
This is the kind you want for Co Q10. The Ubiquinol vs Ubiquinone. I use it because I have to take statins which I have read can be hard on your heart, it depletes the natural occuring enzyme in your liver-Ubiquinol that the heart needs. I'm so glad I found it here because the cost is 2/3 the price of our health food store.Thanks!!!.
I'm 45 and have been on Lipitor since it first went through drug trials. I've always been active, however, over the past 7 to 10 years I have experienced problems with my muscles when working out. I attributed this to aging until I read an article on CoQ10 and thought I would give it a try. I've been taking CoQ10 over the past 6 months and I'm happy with the results; no more muscle problems. As a result, I ran my first 1/2 marathon late last year and I'm trainining for my first marathon in March. This stuff appears to work..
We need Ubiquinol as much as we need cholesterol! I was disabled at 34, due to my statin (lipitor) use. As a former Critical Care RN, I thought I knew everything we needed to know about statins, turns out I didn't and I will pay the rest of my life for not knowing that we need cholesterol in nearly every cell in our body. Not 1 study proves Statins prevent Heart attack or Stroke. But if your doctor is able to scare you into taking this poison, take a high quality Ubiquinol as well. Avoid processed foods, consume antioxidant containing fruits and veggies.
This product was suggested to me by the Mrg of a vitamin shoppe. I have cardiomyopathy and tire easily. I took 500mg daily and noticed within weeks I was having more and more energy, my skin looked 10 years younger and my metabolism sped up a tiny bit. Coq10 strengthens the muscles of the heart (via the cells). Then I heard it could be used for renal failure in humans... I have a cat with the beginnings of renal failure so I spoke with my vet and told him I was putting my 14 pound cat on it.
THIS IS INCREDIBLE NEWS AND I WANTED YOU ALL TO KNOW IT WAS UBIQUINOL COQ10 THAT DID THIS. The Vitamin Shoppe brand is a good brand. I'm very pleased..
