New Study: Statins May Reduce Physical ActivityPrint
Statins, which are well-known and widely prescribed drugs used to lower cholesterol, have been the focus of much research on possible side effects. A recent study by medical researchers at the Oregon State University and published in the Journal of American Medical Association, links the use of statins by some people to reduced physical activity.
The cause has yet to be determined but one explanation may be that the side effects of muscular pain, stiffness or tiredness causes users to exercise less and become more sedentary. This becomes a critical factor in overall health since it is so important to remain active as you get older for overall body health.
If you take statins and experience unpleasant side effects, we strongly recommend that you discuss the issue with your doctor and consider trying Res-Q LDL-X Red Yeast Rice as a natural alternative without common side effects.
