The reason behind this is Heart Attack Defense because the way statins work is to inhibit an enzyme in your liver that is behind the production of cholesterol, unfortunately at the same time another enzyme is also inhibited, and this particular enzyme is used to provide energy to every single cell in your body. When your body is deprived of this enzyme for a long period of time then ultimately it can cause some serious health consequences, in particular muscle pain and fatigue and unfortunately one of the muscles that can suffer as a consequence of this is your heart; hence why heart failure is a known side effect of statins.
So ultimately because of these kinds of health concerns this is why more people are looking to use natural products to lower cholesterol, the question is though are there any natural products to lower cholesterol effectively or is it all a load of old wives tales?
The good news is there are ways to effectively lower cholesterol with natural products, natural products to lower cholesterol can include garlic and artichoke leaf extract to name but two, and while these can have a bit of an effect for you, from my research it appears to me that the best kind of natural products to lower cholesterol are blended supplements which consist of several key ingredients that have been blended together to create a more powerful supplement.
The reason these blended supplement seem so powerful is because not only do they lower the LDL cholesterol but they also increase HDL cholesterol, reduce the amount of cholesterol produced by the body in the first place, reduce the amount cholesterol that is absorbed into the body through the gastrointestinal tract and also remove fatty particles in the blood as well as reducing the amount of oxidized cholesterol too.
By using a supplement that can do this for you then you have in fact something that is as powerful if not more powerful for your body as statins; more importantly though you will be able to reduce your cholesterol levels without impairing that important enzyme that is needed to power the cells in your body, therefore freeing your self from the risk of heart failure that is associated with statins.
