Like all the other reviewers, I suffer from the continuing bad side effects of taking Lipitor for just three months. I'm giving this book 4 (instead of 5) starts because it doesn't give a clear, definitive list of things to take to counter the effects of having taken statins. What really is needed is a prioritized list: if you had to take just one supplement take this, two, etc... If you read this book, eventually you start to think you have to take every supplement possible: Vitamin C, B's, D's and eating good food won't do it for you for such standard vitamins and minerals.
If I had to make such a prioritized list: alpha-lipoic acid is number 1 and Best Doctor's 600 mg is the best of the best; 600 mg is a lot. Twice a day is not a bad idea. Also, Dr. Sinatra's recommendations for heart supplements is short and sweet: Magnesium, CoQ10, d-Ribose, and Carnitine. Finally, to loose weight and maybe keep it off -- the number one prescription -- try Spirulina and Chromium Picolinate. They keep sugar cravings down and generally suppress appetite. Finally: low carb diets. Actually with this list slowly (6 months) I have countered the effects of statins and feel very good -- better than ever really.
