    People who've suffered heart failure dramatically reduce their chances of dying or suffering more heart problems if they supplement with coenzyme Q10, a major new study has found.
    Taking a 100 mg supplement three times a day for two years reduces the risk by 43 per cent, say researchers in the Q-SYMBIO study.

    Taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol could damage the heart. Studies have shown that, while statins do lower cholesterol, they can also lower the production of Coenzyme Q10 by up to 50%. Cutting CoQ10 levels threatens not only the proper functioning of the heart, but it also affects the ability of the cells to produce energy. Bottom line: anyone taking a statin should also be taking a CoQ10 supplement.

    Also, one of the side effects of statins is rhabdomyolitis, which is the weakening of muscle tissue. And the heart is a muscle.

    I was vaguely aware of muscle problems caused by statins, but never heard the term rhabdomyolysis associated with this condition. Also, a form of CoQ10, known as ubiquinol, is more bioavailable to the mitochondria, easier to transport in the blood, and contains antioxidant properties not found in conventional CoQ10. Although much of the conventional CoQ10 is "converted" into ubiquinol, the conversion process becomes much less efficient as we age. So, ubiquinol is highly recommended after age 40.
