Statin drugs work by inhibiting your liver’s production of cholesterol by poisoning an enzyme that’s important to the production of cholesterol
Statin drugs have been linked to muscle weakness and pain, possibly due to the fact that statins also block the production of other important compounds, such as coenzyme Q10
Although coenzyme Q10 supplementation can significantly improve muscle weakness and pain associated with statin drugs, many people continue to have the side effects, even after coQ10 supplementation
Researchers discovered that the people who had the worst side effects also seemed to have the lowest vitamin D levels
When researchers supplemented the patients with vitamin D the pain and weakness improved or subsided entirely
If you take statins, try supplementing with 200 mg of active coenzyme Q10 called Ubiquinol and 5,000 iu of vitamin D daily.
