Statin Care*


Promotes cardiovascular health*
• Helps maintain cardiovascular function*
• Supports healthy lipid metabolism*
• Promotes coenzyme Q10 intake*
• Provides 500 IU of vitamin D, 1,000 mg of L-carnitine and 100 mg of coenzyme Q10 per serving

Statin Care* combines coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine and vitamin D in a convenient capsule format. Statins are first-line agents that promote healthy cholesterol levels by mediating the production of mevalonate, a precursor to both cholesterol and coenzyme Q10. Consequently, research has found that statin intake is associated with reduced serum and muscle coenzyme Q10 levels. Coenzyme Q10 is required for electron transfer in the mitochondrial respiratory chain, which produces energy necessary for cellular functions and muscle contractions. Similarly, the highest levels of L-carnitine are found in the cardiac and skeletal muscle, where it plays a role in energy balance. L-carnitine transports fatty acids to the mitochondria for oxidation and subsequent energy production. Research has found that supplementation with L-carnitine promotes healthy lipid metabolism in adults.*
