  • Effects of Epicatechin on Statins for Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Impaired Exercise Capacity

    open to eligible people ages 30-75

    The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the side-effects of statin consumption, and assess the ability of epicatechin (a compound in dark chocolate) to counteract or reverse these changes. The investigators' prior research has shown that epicatechin can improve skeletal muscle structure and mitochondrial (which gives us energy) structure.
