Those who take cholesterol-lowering statin drugs should be warned that these medications may stimulate heart failure and atherosclerosis. Statin drugs prevent your body from producing vitamin K2, which plays an important role in artery protection. Statin drugs can also interfere with CoQ10 production, causing additional damage to your heart. If you take cholesterol-lowering statin drugs talk to your doctor about taking K2 and CoQ10 supplements.*
You can source vitamin K2 naturally though animal products such as meat, poultry, cheese, eggs and butter. For a boost in CoQ10, try eating liver, kidneys, beef, sardines, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower.
