How my parents lowered their cholesterol by 30 pts in 30 days - no diets or drugs. An all natural alternative to statin drugs.
5 Important & Clinically Proven Reasons You Should NOT Take Statin Drugs
Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. They work by blocking the enzyme (HMG-CoA reductase) in your liver, that is responsible for making cholesterol.
Now, this is very important topic to me personally, because over 15+ years ago my parent’s were prescribed these toxic drugs and they had a ton of negative side-effects.
Unfortunately back then, we didn’t have all the data we have now. The pharmaceutical companies did a great job of hiding them.
Today I’m going to reveal the top 5, clinically proven reasons, why you should NOT take statin drugs and one of my favorite, natural alternatives that my own parents use.
Reason #1 - They DON’T Work!
Statin drugs DO lower your cholesterol levels, but don’t think they lower your risk of heart disease, heart attacks or strokes.
Based on the statistics of “Relative Risk Reduction (RRR)”, statins reduce the risk for only 1% of the population - that’s it!8
Reason #2 - Increase Your Risk Major Disease, Including Cancer!
Statins increase your risk for diabetes. And what’s interesting is that over 50% of people who have heart disease, have elevated glucose and blood sugar levels. So the irony is that the statin drugs will indirectly INCREASE your risk of heart disease by increasing your blood sugar levels.
Statins also cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as memory loss, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s.
Statins also cause musculoskeletal disorders, leading to muscle pain and weakness (myalgia), muscle cramps and other muscular problems.
Statins also cause cataracts, which is a clouding of your eye lens and is a main cause of low vision among the elderly.
Finally, statin drugs are known to cause cancer.
Reason #3 - Deplete Important Nutrients
Statin drugs deplete two very important nutrients in your body.
The first is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
CoQ10 is used for energy production by every cell in your body, and is therefore vital for good health, high energy levels, longevity, and general quality of life.
What’s important to know is that your heart is the most energy-demanding organ in your body.
By depleting CoQ10, your heart slowly becomes weaker and ages faster.
In addition to CoQ10, statin drug also reduce Vitamin K2.
This is important for you to know because Vitamin K2 protects your arteries from calcification. Without it, plaque levels worsen.
Reason #4 - Liver Problems & Toxicity
Of all the negative side-effects associated with statin drugs, the most common was “drug induced liver injury”… This accounts for a whopping 57% of all statin related “adverse drug reactions”, which included potentially severe and some cases, deadly consequences such as:
Death from acute liver failure
Liver problems are so bad with statin drugs that each year there are millions of people diagnosed “moderate to serious liver dysfunction”!
Remember, your liver detoxifies and cleanses your entire body. Poor liver function greatly accelerates aging!
Reason #5 - Natural Alternatives Exist
You don’t need to take statin drugs because natural alternatives already exist.
Nature already has the answers, NOT the pharmaceutical companies. I’m sure you already know this….
Drugs can be used SHORT-TERM, to quickly improve a health problem … TEMPORARILY. But positive, long-term benefits can only be seen and felt using natural means.
This way, you have a proven, simple and convenient solution for your high cholesterol, while being so much safer than statin drugs.
