statins

  1. [SHOCKING] Statin drugs FLUNK major cholesterol study!

    Your doctor won’t admit it – but he KNOWS it’s true.

    He KNOWS that the very same drugs he’s pushing on you for cholesterol probably WON’T work very well by any definition you care about.

    And now, new research confirms another startling truth...

    They won’t work by any definition HE cares about, either!

    These drugs:

    • DON’T cut your cholesterol as much as promised;
    • WON’T cut your risks as much as you hoped; and
    • CAN’T truly prevent a heart attack or strike.

    But they WILL lead to side effects so severe you’ll want to quit!

    The new study takes everything they’ve been telling you about cholesterol and turns it upside down.

    Just don’t expect mainstream doctors to admit it yet. They’re so committed to the drugs that they can’t even see what their own study is telling them!

    The TRUTH about cholesterol meds – and why they DON’T work

    The mainstream claims a statin “works” when it cuts LDL cholesterol by at least 40 percent (and ideally more).

    But the new study finds statin drugs don’t actually meet their own goals in the average patient…

    Over TWO FULL YEARS, less than half of the patients in the study hit that target.

    The rest… more than 50 percent… fell short (in some cases far short).

    When a drug doesn’t meet its own goal, you’re supposed to toss it, right?

    NOPE!

    That’s not what they’re doing. They’re doubling down – and urging docs to prescribe higher and higher doses instead.

    Friends, that’s just madness.

    Higher doses don’t always lead to better results, but they certainly WILL increase your risk of side effects.

    And when it comes to statins, side effects can be a doozy

    There are immediate and short-term problems such as agonizing muscle pain and the haze of “brain fog” and memory loss, as well as long-term risks including liver and kidney damage.

    The drugs can even cause diabetes, especially at higher doses.

    Yet they want you to take them – at those dangerous higher doses – based on their own flawed study, which finds that when the drugs do work they cut the risk of heart disease by about 14 percent.

    That’s not NOTHING, but that’s not exactly impressive, either, given all of the risks.

    Here’s a better idea: Let’s admit the drugs are failing and move on to something that WORKS.

    We don’t have to start all over, because we already have a safe and proven answer.

    The key reason cholesterol leads to heart risk isn’t the LDL itself, but when the cholesterol particles are damaged by oxidation and start to “stick” in the arteries as a result.

    Astaxanthin is one nature’s most powerful antioxidants. It can stop that process cold and help ensure the LDL particles pass through your arteries undamaged.

    You can find it on its own, but for best results look for it at the heart of an all-natural cholesterol support formula from a maker you trust.

  2. Statins don’t help healthy seniors

    EXPOSED: The biggest myth about today’s most common drug!

    Statins for everyone? Not so fast!

    I’ve never bought the statin myth. Even when these awful drugs “work”… and cut LDL levels as promised… they won’t always cut your RISKS.

    Now, new research exposes the truth about statins.

    If you’re a little older and already healthy, they won’t add so much as a single second to your life.

    And they certainly won’t cut your heart risks.

    These drugs should be sued for false advertising!

    A new study of some 47,000 people finds that these drugs hit the trifecta of “don’ts” in healthy folks over the age of 75.

    They DON’T cut your risk of heart disease… they DON’T cut your risk of stroke… and they DON’T cut your risk of death.

    The study does claim that older diabetics will get some benefit. If you’ve got diabetes and are a little up there in years, taking a statin will supposedly cut your risk of heart disease by 24 percent and death by 16 percent.

    Sounds good, right?

    But even if you have diabetes, don’t be so quick to swallow a statin.

    First, the study finds that those benefits fade as you get older, and they vanish somewhere between the ages of 85 and 90.

    And second, even when the numbers look so temptingly good, they don’t take the very real risk of side effects into account.

    Even if they work as advertised… and cut your heart risk a little… what good is that lower risk if you’re suffering from crippling muscle pain?

    What good is it if you’re struggling with the devasting toll of cognitive problems?

    These are both not only very real statin side effects, but they’re incredibly common ones.

    And of course, the meds can CAUSE diabetes.

    That’s a terrible irony for you. The very drugs you’re supposed to take to protect you when you have diabetes may have actually caused the disease in the first place!

    Here’s the real deal with these meds: Don’t touch them.

    Even if you DO need help with cholesterol control, statins are the absolute worst way to go about it.

    Safer options including red yeast rice, which can lower LDL without the risks -- but even that old natural standard may not always be your best choice.

    The real risks from cholesterol aren’t from the LDL itself… but other factors such as oxidation. Stop the oxidation, and you can cut those risks.

    The best way to do that isn’t by blindly lowering LDL with a drug.

    It’s with proven antioxidants such as Hydroxy-3, which can stop the damaging free radicals behind LDL oxidation.
