India bears a huge burden of cardiovascular diseases and coronary heart disease (CHD) is among the leading causes of death. One of the major risk factor that has increased the number of people suffering from heart disease is elevated cholesterol levels. High blood cholesterol level leads to plaque deposition in the arteries causing them to narrow down and interrupt with the normal blood flow. People who have high cholesterol are often prescribed cholesterol-lowering statin medication to protect them against heart disease. In fact statins are known as wonder drugs or miracle drugs for those who are diagnosed with heart disease.
