What is its relationship to cholesterol lowering medication?
Inevitably the long-term use of statin drugs will lead to CoQ10 depletion in the body.

Supplementing with CoQ10 can assist in replenishing blood levels of CoQ10 depleted by statin medication.

Co-EnzymeQ10 is an essential component of the mitochondria - the energy producing part of the cell and is found referred to as nature’s spark-plug. CoQ10 is vital for life and is found in every cell of the body. Since the discovery of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), investigative inquiry into its clinical value has led to widespread use and substantiation of its benefits.

Indications for Use
Cardiovascular diseases such as congestive heart disease, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, mitral valve prolapse, coronary bypass and angina can benefit from Co-Q10 supplementation.
