CoQ10

I have read and heard that CoQ10 helps when you are on Statins, for I take 5mg every other night, wants to get of but my Dr. suggested not to because of CAD disease. opinion on the supplement.

@A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member,
I went to the site you gave and nothing on it says that Coq10 has any benefits. Did you read it before posting the information. It tells you that there is no proof that taking the supplements will increase your levels of your natural levels. It also list a number of side effects that it causes that people are trying to get rid of. For people who take anticoagulants it can cause you to have blood clots. It has stated nothing that would warrant any one to want to take it. I make my statements from fact and not a could should and might, that it's bottom line reads that there are no proven facts. Please read your site information before using it as a way of proving that the supplement works it makes you question it more.
Thanks for proving my point.

Hi,
Please listen to your cardiologist, Coq10 is nothing but an unregulated blood thinner and there is the possibility of it containing unlisted NSAIDS. Here no forms of supplements are recommended for patients and they have found them to be the front runners of kidney, liver, and pancreatic cancer. These are the organs that remove them from your system and our bodies can't break them down small enough to pass through as waste. Ask your cardiologist about a different form of statin.
Take care,
Robin

This is from the Mayo Clinic.
Anyone who suggests that CoQ 10 may be harmful should do more research.
Good luck with your CAD and don't look for answers here.
Do your own research.
Most cardiologists no nothing about nutrition and always prescribe pharmaceuticals.
