- StatinGuard® was designed to help maintain healthful CoEnzyme Q10 levels and support cardiovascular health.*
StatinGuard® was designed by our founder Dr. Seth Baum, a well-known Cardiologist to help maintain healthful Coenzyme Q10 levels and thus promote cardiovascular health.* 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. CoQ10 functions as an electron carrier in the mitochondrial respiratory chain as well as serve 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. Maintaining healthful levels of coenzyme Q10 is important for heart health. * (1)
L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid are included in StatinGuard® because of their uniquely beneficial interplay with CoQ10 to increase normal energy levels in our body cells. L-carnitine is an amino acid-derived compound necessary for the 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, one of the most potent antioxidants found in our body cells.*
