COQ10 for CHF

Hi, I am wondering if anyone takes this supplement for CHF? It is supposed to help greatly with heart function and energy, I have heard. Does anyone here take it or any professionals have opinions on this? Thanks.

Yes I take it in addition to Omega-3, Taurine and D-Ribose.

The reason it is not for the CHF itself but because I take statins for my cholesterol and they are supposed to inhibit the body production of Q10.

My cardiologist think that they only have a "placebo" effect abd are useless.

What is your opinion though? You take it, how do you feel while taking it?

It is as I was expecting ... I feel nothing ... just be sure that I do not have side effects from statins.

If you go to amounts, like 100mg of ubiquinol, which it is more absorb-able than ubiquinone, you might feel a decrease in your BP.
