is a powerful antioxidant in the body
that plays a role in energy production, and may enhance the function
and health of the heart. Additionally,
Co-Q10 supplements are commonly
given to patients on statin therapy, as
these drugs deplete our body’s natural stores of Co-Q10, which can lead

When buying any supplement,
consult a health care professional trained in and familiar with their
usage. Stores such as Pine Pharmacy
in Williamsville specialize in providing these products, and ensuring their
quality and safety.

time this month to pay attention to
your “ticker”—it might save your life.
