People taking cholesterol-lowering statin medicine often take Ubiquinol, too. Why?

Statin medicines work by inhibiting the body’s production of cholesterol. Because CoQ10 is formed via the same pathway as cholesterol, people who take a statin may have reduced levels of both conventional CoQ10 and Ubiquinol, the more advanced form of CoQ10.

Taking a Ubiquinol supplement helps replenish reduced levels of CoQ10 that may be associated with statin use. And because Ubiquinol is more readily absorbable by the body than conventional CoQ10, Ubiquinol is the preferred form of CoQ10 for statin drug users.

Here is an article that explains more about Ubiquinol CoQ10 and cholesterol-lowering statin medicines.

Please check with your doctor before starting to take any dietary supplement.
