Chronic pain, vitamin D, and magnesium

Chronic pain, vitamin D, and magnesiumHeadache, aching joints, and other types of chronic pain are typically caused by myofascial pain syndrome, which is characterized by localized pain. There can be many underlying causes of this condition, but according to a Thai study published in BMC Nutrition, lack of sunshine and too little vitamin D are quite common among patients. Magnesium therapy may also have an effect, according to a study published in BMC Oral Health.

Cholesterol lowering medicine may damage your muscle tissue

Even short-term conCholesterol lowering medicine may damage your muscle tissuetact with cholesterol lowering drugs can cause potentially harmful side effects such as exercise intolerance and muscle pain, scientists report.

Statins, a widely used class of cholesterol-lowering drugs, are believed to cause exercise intolerance and damage muscle tissue. Now, a team of researchers from Columbia University – College of Physicians & Surgeons, have come one step closer to understanding why. Reporting in the June Archives of Neurology, the team of scientists describe how 34 patients on cholesterol-lowering medicine (atorvastatin) displayed significant reductions in their levels of coenzyme Q10, a vitamin-like substance which cells need in order to produce energy.

Folic acid reduces the risk of stroke

Folic acid reduces the risk of strokeSurprisingly many people suffer from hypertension without knowing it. That is a concealed threat, as elevated blood pressure is a common cause of stroke and premature death. However, people with hypertension who take folic acid along with their blood pressure-lowering medicine have a substantially lower risk of stroke.

Is cholesterol dangerous or is it a myth?

Is cholesterol dangerous or is it a myth?Medical science has claimed for decades that elevated cholesterol levels pose a health threat, especially if you have too much of the so-called “bad” cholesterol – or LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein). However, a team of international experts is now arguing that this theory is exaggerated. In fact, the experts specifically advise against taking cholesterol-lowering statins. Meanwhile, science is focused on how to improve the safety of statins by combining them with supplements of coenzyme Q10.

It is inflammation and not cholesterol that causes cardiovascular disease

It is inflammation and not cholesterol that causes cardiovascular diseaseThere is absolutely no reason not to consume eggs, meat, butter and other cholesterol-filled foods with a good conscience. American dietary guidelines have finally exonerated cholesterol, which happens to be an essential compound. Many scientists actually claim that atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease are both a result of inflammation and lack of specific micronutrients. It is important to pay attention to factors that are known to promote inflammation in the body and take the necessary steps by looking after your circulatory system, making healthy lifestyle choices, and possibly even using supplements.

Omega-3 levels in the blood say more than cholesterol about the risk of premature death

Omega-3 levels in the blood say more than cholesterol about the risk of premature deathEat plenty of oily fish from clean oceans or take a fish oil supplement to make sure that you get enough of the essential omega-3 fatty acids. It lowers your risk of premature death by protecting you against atherosclerosis and a number of other diseases. In fact, blood levels of omega-3 tell a lot more than levels of cholesterol, according to a new study that is published in Journal of Clinical Lipidology.

Optimize cellular energy metabolism and muscle-building with Q10 and magnesium

Optimize cellular energy metabolism and muscle-building with Q10 and magnesiumThe cellular energy turnover takes place inside some small powerhouses called mitochondria. The condition of these tiny structures is determining for our energy levels and health. That is why it is vital that the mitochondria are adequately supplied with all the necessary nutrients. Q10 and magnesium play a particularly important role.

Persons treated with statins benefit from Q10

Danish researchers havePersons treated with statins benefit from Q10 shed some light on the longstanding mystery: Why do we see so many people treated with cholesterol-lowering statins experiencing muscle pain and in some cases, also impaired glucose tolerance. The answer is a lack of Q10!

Supplementation with Q10 and selenium halves your cardiovascular risk for numerous years

Supplementation with Q10 and selenium halves your cardiovascular risk for numerous yearsSwedish scientists wrote medical history when they discovered that supplementation with Q10 and selenium could halve a person's risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Now, a 10-year of the Swedish study shows that taking these two supplements even has a notable long-term effect on cardiac function and lifespan.

The link between statins, atherosclerosis, and lack of vitamin K

The link between statins, atherosclerosis, and lack of vitamin KCholesterol-lowering statins are among some of the most widely sold medical drugs. However, there is growing disagreement about their preventive effect on atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases, which are linked to many other factors than cholesterol levels alone. It turns out that statins also block the body’s production of vitamin K2, a nutrient that contributes to removing calcium from the bloodstream. A new study that is published in Medical Sciences concludes that atherosclerosis is more prevalent among statin users than among non-users, regardless of any cardiovascular diseases that have already been diagnosed. In other words, statins actually increase your risk of clogged-up arteries and that contradicts the traditional view. The new study supports earlier research, and it has been known for years that statins also block the endogenous synthesis of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin D, both of which are important for the heart and circulatory system.
