Cholesterol and the Side Effects of Statins

The Food and Drug Administration, and various other clinical investigations, report a number of side effects of statins, a class of drugs used for lowering the cholesterol levels in the blood. The FDA stated that the “benefits outweigh the risks” in a recent conference that outlined the dangers to memory loss that statins may present. The FDA failed to outline the dangers and side effects of statins that exist outside of memory loss; 90-99% of which go unreported by doctors. We understand that some people may not be able to lead healthy and productive lives without the help of statin drugs, but think it’s important to outline the side effects of statins beyond memory loss.

Major Side Effects of Statins

What are the side effects of statins? Take a look at this list!

Cholesterol is produced by an enzyme in your liver and statin drugs block the activities of these enzymes, thus reducing the production of cholesterol. Cholesterol is essential for the normal functioning of the body yet when levels become unbalanced it can lead to the development of atherosclerosis and other complications with the heart. Doctors prescribe statins for patients with unhealthy levels of cholesterol to reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack but at what risk to the rest of the system? Aside from risks like permanent damage to the liver, nervous system, and muscles other side effects include:

  • Kidney failure
  • Amnesia
  • Homicidal impulses
  • Hostility
  • Short temper and irritability
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Constipation
  • Problems sleeping
  • Inability to walk
  • Cramping or tingling in legs
  • Nerve Damage
  • Temperature regulation difficulties
  • Erecticle dysfunction
  • Liver abnormalities
  • Headaches
  • Rashes or flushing of skin
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea

Clearly it’s more than just memory loss. Side effects of statins may not appear in everyone who takes the medication and the intensity of side effects may also vary from person to person. The side effects will be greater if you take multiple drugs for lowering your cholesterol and side effects are noted more frequently in females. Patients with liver or kidney problems, Type 1 or 2 Diabetes, and those with a small body frame are more prone to these side effects.

Avoiding the Side Effects of Statins

You can avoid the side effects of statins with a good diet, exercise, and natural remedies.

You can avoid the side effects of statins with a good diet, exercise, and natural remedies.

Not everyone can control their cholesterol levels and many need the assistance of modern medicine – we support what is right for your body as decided on between you and your physician. For everyone else, we want to offer some alternatives to these drugs. Consider your diet and exercise routines as a first step to getting your body healthy. If you’re eating fatty foods and leading a sedentary lifestyle, odds of your cholesterol levels being high is nearly certain. Physical activity and foods that are healthy are an important first step. Prescription or over-the-counter drugs don’t have to be your only option in addressing healthy cholesterol levels. Kolester is Hanna’s blend of herbs that is designed to keep cholesterol levels healthy with a proper diet and exercise program with no side effects and performs well with Circu Flow which is designed to keep your heart healthy. These two products have been successful for 30 years!

With proper diet and nutrition you won’t have to ask yourself if the benefits outweigh the risks and you won’t have to worry with a long list of possible side effects. Choosing a natural path to wellness may not seem as effective as what you are able to purchase from a pharmacy but, what’s the harm in trying?

You already know the harm in not.

It’s Valentine’s Day and while we can appreciate spreading love with chocolates or flowers, we also want to spread good health with our heart healthy products. I know—we’re so romantic! Take a look below for treats that can help support a healthy heart as well as a quick review of our products to keep your ticker in tip top shape!

Fun Foods for Heart Health

Can popcorn promote heart health? YES!

Can popcorn promote heart health? YES!

Yogurt—Consider making this a part of your Valentine’s Dessert by adding berries or other fruit for a heart healthy treat. Research shows that yogurt may help protect against gum disease which is important since, when left unchecked, gum disease greatly elevates a person’s risk for heart disease. Take care of your teeth to provide care for your heart!

Chocolate—Moderate amounts of flavanol-rich dark chocolate has blood-thinning effects, which can benefit cardiovascular health and boost the immune system by reducing inflammation. Some research also shows that cocoa may help lower blood pressure due to a compound called epicatechin which boosts nitric oxide. Plentiful levels of nitric oxide help keep blood pressure from climbing. Be sure to choose dark chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa solids as milk chocolate lacks significant levels of epicatechin.

Berries—Add these to your yogurt or enjoy them alone! Eating just under a cup of mixed berries daily for eight weeks was associated with increased levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and lowered blood pressure. Berries contain a wide range of polyphenols which increase levels of nitric oxide, the molecule that produces a number of heart-healthy effects like helping to relax blood vessels, which subsequently results in lowered blood pressure.

Popcorn—what a fun treat that everyone loves! Popcorn delivers polyphenols, the antioxidants linked to improving heart health. Gram for gram, popcorn boasts three times more polyphenols than kidney beans! And, popcorn is a whole grain and people who eat plenty of whole grains tend to be leaner and have a lower risk of heart disease than those who don’t.

Wine—Drinking wine in moderation may protect the heart by raising HDL (good) cholesterol, decreasing inflammation and thinning the blood to prevent clots that cause heart attacks and stroke. Moderate drinking may also increase estrogen, which protect the heart-a benefit particularly helpful to postmenopausal women whose reduced estrogen levels increase their risk of heart disease. Remember, 1 drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of liquor. We include all these measurements, not just wine, since some scientific literature indicates that people who drink moderately are less likely to have heart disease than those who abstain.

We think those are some great Valentine’s Day treats that promote heart health (courtesy of Eating Well Magazine) but take a look at what else we have up our sleeves!
