Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally occurring compound found in every cell of the body. It plays a critical role in:

  • Energy production
  • Antioxidant defense
  • Heart support
  • Nerve protection
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Healthy cell growth

Our muscles use a lot of energy, and they need a lot of CoQ10 to function. But did you know that some medications deplete CoQ10 from the body? Common culprits include:

  • Some blood pressure medications
  • Cholesterol-reducing medications

People who take cardiac medications or statins to lower their cholesterol often experience muscle cramping and weakness due to CoQ10 depletion. CarePro pharmacists can help you find a CoQ10 supplement that is right for you – just ask!
