Many people take cholesterol-lowering statin medications to support cardiovascular health. Statins are incredibly effective for this purpose, but they have a serious downside: They deprive the body of several heart-protective nutrients!
OptiStatin™ CoQ10-SR® is formulated to help you take statins safely. Unlike straight CoQ10 products, OptiStatin™ CoQ10-SR® provides a full range of nutrients to counteract the negative effects of statins.
This formula addresses these negative effects with:

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like substance present in virtually every cell of the human body. It aids in energy production, so it is most common in organs with high energy requirements such as the heart, liver, and kidneys.* Research has shown CoQ10 helps maintain blood pressure levels already within a healthy range.* MicroActive® CoQ10 is three times better absorbed than regular CoQ10 and two times better absorbed than solubilized (“enhanced bioavailability”) CoQ10 softgels.
Vitamin K is like a traffic controller, directing calcium to where it belongs (your bones) and away from where it doesn’t (your soft tissues, like your arteries).* As a result, vitamin K helps keep your arteries supple and flexible.* But not all vitamin K is the same! In fact, only vitamin K2 — not vitamin K1 — has the power to direct calcium.*
Selenium is important for the production of glutathione peroxidase, the body’s master antioxidant.* When the body doesn’t have enough glutathione peroxidase, the heart suffers.*
Muscle pain is a common side effect of statins, but only in people who are low in vitamin D before they start the medication. That makes sense, since vitamin D is important for healthy joints and muscles.* Unfortunately, low vitamin D is all-too-common in the United States. According to one study, over 40 percent of Americans are deficient in this essential nutrient.
Q: What is MicroActive CoQ10?
A: MicroActiveCoQ10 is a a patented form of CoQ10 with superior bioavailability. The fat-soluble CoQ10 is bound to water-soluble carrier molecules, which escort the CoQ10 through the digestive system. There, it’s released slowly over the course of 24 hours. Because the CoQ10 particles are micronized, they easily enter the cells. As a result of these technological innovations, MicroActive CoQ10 has been shown to improve absorption for all people who take it, not just a few “super absorbers.”
Q: What heart-protective nutrients does OptiStatin provide?
A: OptiStatin provides the heart protective nutrients, CoQ10, Vitamin K2, Selenium, and Vitamin D3.
Q: If you are not currently taking statins can you benefit from OptiStatin?
A: Yes, OptiStatin offers the body several heart-protective nutrients that anyone with a heart can benefit from!
Q: What is a statin?
A: Statins are drugs prescribed by doctors for people who need to manage their high cholesterol levels. This is good and all, but some experience really troublesome side effects such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and muscle pain. Worse, statins could also lead to specific nutrient deficiencies, many of which are actually heart-protective like CoQ10, Vitamin D, and certain antioxidants.
The above product is the one I prefer and I’ve been waiting awhile for it to be available. I do not like the co q 10 with vitamin d and vitamin k2. I take other supplements with these vitamins. I keep burping this product up throughout the day. Sharon B
