Statins: Green tea and Q10 counter worst effects

Scientists at Harvard have discovered that the side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins can be countered either by drinking green tea or taking a coenzyme Q10 supplement.

Green tea contains a substance known as deoxysappanone, which seems to have a beneficial effect on mitochondria, reducing the levels of toxic free radicals, and boosting activity and increasing energy production. The coenzyme Q10 is another successful antidote to statin side effects and mitochondrial damage. It’s a naturally-occurring nutrient that can be found in fish and meat. It can also be taken as a supplement.
