StatinGuard® was designed to help maintain healthful Coenzyme Q10 levels and promote cardiovascular health.*L-carnitine, and alpha lipoic acid are included in StatinGuard® because of their uniquely beneficial interplay with CoQ10. L-carnitine is an amino acid-derived compound necessary for transport of long chain fatty acids as fuel into the mitochondria. Alpha lipoic acid is a highly effective nutritional antioxidant in bolstering cellular and tissue levels of glutathione.*
CoQ10 levels are known to decrease with aging. In addition, since CoQ10 shares a common synthetic pathway with cholesterol, drugs that inhibit cholesterol synthesis, like the Statins, can reduce CoQ10 levels.
Maintaining healthful levels of coenzyme Q10 is important for heart health.*CoQ10 functions as an electron carrier in the mitochondrial respiratory chain as well as serves as an important intracellular antioxidant. CoQ10 is found throughout the body with the highest concentration in the cells of organs that require large amounts of energy such as the heart and kidneys.
