It is well known that statins deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood and tissue, and CoQ10 reduction is now being suspected as contributing to the recent increases in congestive heart failure in the country. There are studies that show CoQ10 can improve heart function in those with CHF.

Do some research - many suggest doses as high as 200mg/day (or higher) for a sustained period before benefit is noticed...
