Statins are a group of drugs that lower cholesterol levels. <br><br>Both &#34;good&#34; and &#34;bad&#34; cholesterol are produced in your liver. <br><br>Bad cholesterol, also called LDL, is made by combining fats with proteins. <br><br>An enzyme called HMG&#45;CoA reductase makes this happen. <br><br>Although cholesterol is required for normal body functions, too much LDL causes arteries to narrow by forming plaque Statins work by blocking the enzyme that makes LDL cholesterol.  By reducing bad cholesterol there&#39;s a lower risk for plaque buildup. This leads to fewer heart attacks, strokes, and other health problems.
