I've heard this argument but I haven't checked it out to see how valid it is. I take CoQ-10 supplements anyway.I read several abstracts (about 20) of journal articles about this (search = < statins ubiquinone >). The consensus seems to be that statins do lower SERUM levels of ubiquinone (CoQ-10) and that supplements of CoQ-10 increase SERUM levels.None of the studies that I found actually looked at ubiquinone levels in mitochondria isolated from animals treated with statins and/or ubiquinone supplements.None of the studies addressed the correlation of serum levels of ubiquinone with levels in the mitochondrial membranes.Until these studies are done properly, the jury is still out and I will continue to take the CoQ-10 supplements just in case...OleDoc
