Patients on statins should take Cardiosteroil Co.

Q10
daily

Millions of people the world over are taking Statins in their


endeavour to reduce cholesterol and eventually the risk of a
stroke or a heart attack. Examples of medicines that form part
of the statins are Atorvastatin, Fluvastatin, Lovastatin and
Simvastatin. The statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) are
a class of drugs that lower cholesterol levels in people with or at
risk of cardiovascular disease. But few are those that know that
although statins lower cholesterol levels, they inhibit the
ubiquinone, the fat-soluble antioxidant that is found in virtually
all cell membranes, hence its alternative name "ubiquinone",
more commonly known as Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.

It has been shown that treating hypercholesterolemic patients


(HPC) with statins leads to a decrease, at least in plasma, not
only in cholesterol, but also in important non-sterol compounds
such as ubiquinone (CoQ10), and possibly dolichols, that derive
from the same biosynthetic pathway. Plasma CoQ10 decrease might result in
impaired antioxidant protection, therefore leading to oxidative stress.

What is this CoQ10?


Co Q10 is found in very high concentrations in the heart cells. CoQ10 is very
probably our most important essential nutrient because it plays a very important role
in energy production of our body. CoQ10 makes possible the transfer of electrons
from one protein to another within the inner membrane of the mitochondra (the
'power'house' of the cell), to its ultimate recipient, the ATP, the body's fundamental
energy unit. Without adequate stores of CoQ10, the mitochondria - so important for
our oxygen supply- incurs oxidative damage.

Coenzyme Q10
• prevents arteriosclerosis by reducing the accumulation of oxidized fats in blood
vessels
• eases high blood pressure
• regulates the rhythm of the heart
• improves chest pain and exercise toleration in angina patients

Deficiences in CoQ10 are very common in patients with heart disease, high blood
pressure, diabetes or low HDL cholesterol. It is common in people in their forties and
beyond, and in vegeterians.

Statin-induced CoQ10 depletion is well documented in animal and human studies


with detrimental cardiac consequences in both animal models and human trials.
Statin-induced CoQ10 deficiency is completely preventable with supplemental CoQ10
with no adverse impact on the cholesterol lowering or anti-inflammatory properties
of the statin drugs.

Cardiosteroil Garlic and CoQ10 Liquid Capsules by Alta Care Laboratoires aims at
rectifying this depletion of CoQ10 and thus it is intended for patients suffering from
high cholesterol, high blood pressure or heart disease, and obviously also for anyone
who wants to prevent such conditions. The Cardiosteroil Co Q10 capsules are the
strongest and most active on the market because they are in liquid form unlike other
Co Q10 that are available in solid capsule or tablet form.

Cardiosteroil Garlic and CoQ10 liquid are made in France and are available only
from pharmacies. There is no need of any prescription and the directions of use are 1
or 2 liquid capsules daily.
