3 Nutrients That Can Keep Dangerous Statins Away

I get a lot of patients who come down from New York for the winter. Not long ago, one of these patients told me a story about an old mafia trick he’d heard of…

Each night, gangs would drive around the city stealing manhole covers.

The next morning, like clockwork, city authorities would hire contractors to replace all the missing manhole covers. Of course, the contractors were controlled by the mafia.

And the city authorities who hired them were on the take from the very same mob.

Fortunes were made. It was a win-win situation. The only losers were New York taxpayers.

I’m reminded of this story because Big Pharma is about to play the same game.

But instead of manhole covers, they will be using cholesterol-busting statin drugs.

Let me explain…

Big Pharma has brainwashed much of the world into thinking that statins are all that stand between patients and heart attacks – and now they’re poised to cash in on the miserable side effects caused by these drugs.

Drugs that you don’t need in the first place.

I’ve been warning patients against these Big Pharma toxins for decades. Not only are they a waste of time when treating heart disease – in fact, they raise your risk of heart attacks – but they come with a long list of side effects.

Some of the more dangerous side effects include high blood sugar, liver damage, memory loss, muscle pain, dystrophy, and rhabdomyolysis (when muscle cells burst).1

Now a team of researchers at Ben-Gurion University in Israel has declared that the muscle pain and dystrophy caused by statins is a “new” disease.

And they’ve discovered that a new drug to treat a hereditary muscle disorder also works for the side effects of statins.2

The researchers have now filed a patent

for the new drug, and it’s just a matter of time before Big Pharma comes calling.

Talk about disease-mongering…

I smell a rat – and I don’t mean a lab rat.

If this new drug were a manhole cover and the researchers were contractors in trucks, they’d surely be suspected of mafia connections.

Like most people in the developed world, there’s a high chance that a doctor has persuaded, scared, or even straight-up bullied you into taking a statin.

You see, their multibillion-dollar global business is based on the decades-old lie that high fat and high cholesterol cause heart disease.

It’s not true. You don’t need statins at all.

I know that may sound jarring, but cholesterol doesn’t cause heart disease. Multiple studies prove it – including the landmark Framington Heart Study, which found no link between high cholesterol and raised heart disease risk.3

Only Big Pharma and their shareholders need statins.

3 Powerful Heart Nutrients That Replace Statins

The good news is that for every statin, there are safe, proven, and inexpensive natural alternatives your cardiologist will never tell you about.

  • Nutrient # 1 – Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): This omega-3 fatty acid eliminates the need for statins and has been proven to raise HDL. It’s a potent defender against heart disease. One study discovered that if you take just 1.5 grams of DHA per day for a few weeks, your HDL can shoot up by 7%. No Big Pharma drug can do that.4
    I recommend supplementing with at least 600 mg of DHA and 60 mg of the EPA form of omega-3 in a combination of squid and krill oil.
  • Nutrient # 2 – CoQ10: This nutrient provides fuel for your mitochondria — the tiny power plants inside each of your cells – in your heart. Statin drugs are the biggest killer of CoQ10 levels. Supplementing with CoQ10 can bring immediate, often-lifesaving benefits. Studies show that taking CoQ10 daily reduces arrhythmias, improves your heart’s pumping ability, and reduces your risk of death from heart attacks. CoQ10 also lowers blood pressure and your atherosclerosis risk.5,6
    If you’re taking statins, your levels are likely to be dangerously low, so I recommend a supplement of at least 100 mg a day. And look for the ubiquinol form of CoQ10. It’s eight times more powerful than the more common ubiquinone form.
  • Nutrient # 3 – PQQ: While CoQ10 does a great job of squeezing more power from your mitochondria, it does nothing for the mitochondria you’ve lost. That’s where the little-known nutrient pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ, comes in. PQQ triggers your heart cells to build healthy new mitochondria, which produce more fuel so your heart pumps with more energy.It’s hard to get enough PQQ from natural sources. I recommend taking 10 mg of PQQ daily with your CoQ10.
