  • Eating Heart Can Affect Blood "Cholesterol"

    April 24, 2023 1 min read

    With the rise in cardiovascular problems since COVID and associated vaccines there has been an increasing push to lower everyone's cholesterol (remember they measure lipoproteins at the doctor's surgery not cholesterol) levels with prescribed statins.

    Everywhere we look we are bombarded with terms like HDL, LDL and a new player called Lipoprotein A [Lp(a)]. Lp(a) is a lipoprotein, like HDL and LDL that carries fats and cholesterol to where it is needed in the body. Lp(a) is not being measured routinely in the UK yet but that will change. 

    The problem with this statin approach is that they don't just stop cholesterol production but also other essential factors in the body such as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is crucial for energy production, without it we are dead!

    So, if it's not wise to use statins then what can we do? Well the good news is that there are natural ways to effect your blood cholesterol levels. For example,  CoQ10 has shown in numerous research studies to lower LDL and Lp(a) and also to raise HDL, which is considered "good" cholesterol (this is honestly too simplistic but let's put that aside for now!).

    But, it gets better! Oxidised (damaging of biological tissues similar to rusting) lipoproteins, like LDL, are probably implicated in cardiovascular disease. CoQ10 actually reduces oxidation in the body when consumed regularly. So CoQ10 actually helps attack one of the main reasons for cardiovascular disease.

    DR GUS mixed beef organ capsules contain plenty of beef heart which in turn  is an excellent source of bioavailable CoQ10. Consuming beef heart regularly as part of your daily nutritional regimen can support healthy cardiovascular function:
