VIDEO: What Nutrients Do Statin Drugs Deplete?
Statin drugs to reduce cholesterol commonly deplete your body of Coenzyme Q10, which is a nutrient that your body needs for energy production, not just for muscles and general alertness, but your heart as well.
They can also rob you of Vitamin D, which you need for a healthy immune system, as well as preventing and controlling inflammation, and even for weight loss.
We typically recommend daily supplements of both of these for patients who need to stay on those statin drugs.
If you’re on prescription medication for cholesterol and feel like your own energy levels are low, please make an appointment at the Stengler Center for Integrated Medicine!
