How my parents lowered their cholesterol by 30 pts in 30 days - no diets or drugs. An all natural alternative to statin drugs.
5 Important & Clinically Proven Reasons You Should NOT Take Statin Drugs
Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. They work by blocking the enzyme (HMG-CoA reductase) in your liver, that is responsible for making cholesterol.
Now, this is very important topic to me personally, because over 15+ years ago my parent’s were prescribed these toxic drugs and they had a ton of negative side-effects.
Unfortunately back then, we didn’t have all the data we have now. The pharmaceutical companies did a great job of hiding them.
Today I’m going to reveal the top 5, clinically proven reasons, why you should NOT take statin drugs and one of my favorite, natural alternatives that my own parents use.
Reason #1 - They DON’T Work!
Statin drugs DO lower your cholesterol levels, but don’t think they lower your risk of heart disease, heart attacks or strokes.
Based on the statistics of “Relative Risk Reduction (RRR)”, statins reduce the risk for only 1% of the population - that’s it!8
Reason #2 - Increase Your Risk Major Disease, Including Cancer!
Statins increase your risk for diabetes. And what’s interesting is that over 50% of people who have heart disease, have elevated glucose and blood sugar levels. So the irony is that the statin drugs will indirectly INCREASE your risk of heart disease by increasing your blood sugar levels.
Statins also cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as memory loss, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s.
Statins also cause musculoskeletal disorders, leading to muscle pain and weakness (myalgia), muscle cramps and other muscular problems.
Statins also cause cataracts, which is a clouding of your eye lens and is a main cause of low vision among the elderly.
Finally, statin drugs are known to cause cancer.
Reason #3 - Deplete Important Nutrients
Statin drugs deplete two very important nutrients in your body.
The first is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
CoQ10 is used for energy production by every cell in your body, and is therefore vital for good health, high energy levels, longevity, and general quality of life.
What’s important to know is that your heart is the most energy-demanding organ in your body.
By depleting CoQ10, your heart slowly becomes weaker and ages faster.
In addition to CoQ10, statin drug also reduce Vitamin K2.
This is important for you to know because Vitamin K2 protects your arteries from calcification. Without it, plaque levels worsen.
Reason #4 - Liver Problems & Toxicity
Of all the negative side-effects associated with statin drugs, the most common was “drug induced liver injury”… This accounts for a whopping 57% of all statin related “adverse drug reactions”, which included potentially severe and some cases, deadly consequences such as:
Death from acute liver failure
Liver problems are so bad with statin drugs that each year there are millions of people diagnosed “moderate to serious liver dysfunction”!
Remember, your liver detoxifies and cleanses your entire body. Poor liver function greatly accelerates aging!
Reason #5 - Natural Alternatives Exist
You don’t need to take statin drugs because natural alternatives already exist.
Nature already has the answers, NOT the pharmaceutical companies. I’m sure you already know this….
Drugs can be used SHORT-TERM, to quickly improve a health problem … TEMPORARILY. But positive, long-term benefits can only be seen and felt using natural means.
This way, you have a proven, simple and convenient solution for your high cholesterol, while being so much safer than statin drugs.

It depends on the drug and dosage, since each one has a different half-life. However, typically they’ll be out of your body within a week or two. BUT, that doesn’t mean the negative effects are gone by then. These drugs are toxic and have long-lasting negative effects. So, it may take months to feel “normal” again. Make sure you take high dosages of CoQ10 and Vit. D3. As both are depleted with statins. And then consider taking a natural alternative such as http://drsam.co/yt/NoMoreStatin – this is what my own parents have been taking since 1999
I am an RN and my Dr.. has been urging me to take statins. I have lowered my cholesterol with diet and exercise. I would rather have the devil I know than the one I don't know. Thank you so much. Blessings
Years ago I was put on Livalo at 5mg per day ... slowly started feeling weaker and developing odd cardiac sensations briefly ... my doc mentioned I might consider adding CoQ10. I also needed to add Vit D supplements and was pushing pre-diabetic numbers. I remember feeling like my golf club was going to fly out of my hands, and one of my patients (pediatric PT) giggling and saying your muscles "are jumping" as I began developing systemic fasciculations (muscle twitching). As I researched all this, I began to taper the Livalo and ramped up healthier alternatives ... fiber, apples, oatmeal, blueberries, chia seeds, green tea --- as well as continuing frequent exercise. Now I am off the Livalo completely and feel mush better, stronger, and the fasciculations have minimized. I really appreciate honest and thoughtful medical debate on this hot topic Dr Robbins. Thanks for sharing your clinical views ...
both my husband and i had major side affects,im off them now. i quit. my husband has a heart attack,so harder to quit them,always a question mark,he has neuropathy in both his feet,cant feel them,also low testosterone, and now type 2 diabetes which has ben linked to statins.
Listen to this man. He is sooo right. Cholesterol is not the problem. It's one of the most important substances in the human body. It is the basis of all the steroidal. hormones. It is made by most of the cells of the body. Dietary restriction has almost no effect on lowering it because your very intelligent body will just make more of what it needs. It is only supported by the best science money can buy. Don't take that poison unless you have familial hypercholesterolemia.
I got off of statin drugs three years ago. My cardiologist was none to happy with me, and her nurse practitioner called and told me I was going to die if I didn't take them. I just told her that everybody dies and hung up.
great video very informative. I have explained this sort of stuff to my father inlaw but he would like to see sources on some level. In future it would be great if you could source some of the info, just so i can share it with people who think the pharmaceutical industry is there to help them, not profit from them and make them more dependant on medication haha
oh no, it's NEVER too late. I know so many people who are on statins and they have slowly gotten off of them or at least reduced the dosages. Take a look at the last QA http://www.choleslo.com/sub/instructions.php?
The longer you're on these harmful drugs, the worse the future is. Please take care of your health my friend. YOU are in charge of YOUR body, not your doctor.
So happy you posted this because i have been saying the same thing for the last 6 years. Ive heard the same thing from a liver transplant surgeon where i work. So glad you made more people aware. Thanks
