What Is Statin Sidekick™?

As a result of the overwhelming benefits of both CoQ10 and buffered creatine we’ve discussed in articles on this website, along with the benefit of vitamin D3 in those with insufficient levels, I decided to combine CoQ10, buffered creatine and vitamin D3 into one convenient nutritional supplement called Statin Sidekick™.  I believe Statin Sidekick is critically important for anyone taking a statin medication along with anyone physically active and interested in insuring a steady supply of energy to muscle and brain cells. Two capsules of Statin Sidekick provides a proprietary blend of buffered creatine and CoQ10 totaling 1,500 mg along with 2,000 iu of vitamin D3. These three ingredients are included in the most optimal ratio based on published clinical trials, our original research and our patient experience at the Leonardi Institute. The recommended dose is 2 to 3 capsules twice a day (always with food) for the first week (called a “loading dose”) followed by 1 to 2 capsules twice a day thereafter. There appears to be a benefit in stopping your statin for the first week while taking the loading dose of Statin Sidekick but we don’t recommend this without first checking with your practitioner.

If you notice muscle aching that you feel is related to your statin while taking Statin Sidekick™, simply increase the dose back up to 3 capsules twice a day. Of course, you should also notify your physician that your statin is causing you pain. You may adjust the dose of Statin Sidekick up and down to see what dose you personally require to eliminate statin-related muscle aching while optimizing muscle energy availability and performance. In unusual circumstances, a few people may even require 4 capsules twice a day. Detailed dosing instructions are included with each order. If 4 capsules of Statin Sidekick twice daily doesn’t relieve your statin side effects, the next logical step might  be to discuss with your practitioner, either an alternative statin or a lower dose of the same statin while continuing Statin Sidekick. If you’re unsuccessful with that approach you may want to discuss statin alternatives with your practitioner.

Statin Sidekick is an essential nutrient for anyone taking a statin. It provides that margin of safety and peace of mind that you’re getting the best possible performance from your muscles while reducing the risk of muscle pain and muscle dysfunction that can accompany statin use.
