The Dangers Of Statin Drugs

Why are Statin drugs  dangerous ?

Statin drugs are no doubt making headlines today! Researchers have discovered some serious side effects affecting those taking this drug then ever before. The hottest selling statin drugs on the market now are Lipitor and Zocor. They lower cholesterol by blocking the Co enzyme HMG CoA reductase. These drugs were first introduced in 1987, and have since grown into a huge business today.

Just recently they have added a warning to their advertising stating ”unexplained muscle pain, and weakness could be a sign of a rare but serious side effect and should be reported to your doctor right away.” Also associated with this drug are memory loss and acute kidney failure. People who take statin drugs need to heed this warning immediately because in extreme cases the  side effects of statins can be fatal!

Wow, this cholesterol lowering drug could very well be a deadly mix for some. A three year study done on people taking statins, who had a heart attack, revealed they had significant amounts of calcium in their coronary arteries. However these drugs are in the top selling class of prescription medication world wide . Earning a staggering 20 million for  their makers annually. Over 25 billion prescriptions are issued world wide!

Few doctors are aware of a safe alternative to these drugs. Vitamin C has been shown to lower cholesterol effectively and safely. In 1985 scientists made an important discovery. That Vitamin C ( ascorbic acid) is the human bodies natural HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor When these levels are low, the body makes more cholesterol. When Vitamin C levels are high cholesterol levels are lower,  making Vitamin C the perfect answer to “natures statin”.

Research has been done to show that Vitamin C deficiency is the root cause of cardiovascular disease, but rather that promoting the more natural cure Vitamin C. The drug companies introduced the statin drug. Upon learning all these serious side effects associated with these drugs, it surprises me that more people have not been made aware of the more natural and chemical free way to lower their cholesterol.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to control free radicals and other oxidants that can convert cholesterol into it’s more dangerous artery clogging form. Vitamin C is needed for metabolizing blood fats. Large doses of this vitamin are safe, but may cause diarrhea or irritate the stomach. If this occurs, simply reduce the amount you are taking. 500-750 mg. Is the recommended dosage to begin with. You may increase this amount if needed.
