by Vitabase

  • Combination of effective natural supplements
  • Policosanol from sugar cane is a recent, highly effective discovery for lowering cholesterol
  • Soy protein helps reduce risk of heart disease
  • Gugulipids from Ayurvedic medicine work to lower LDL and total cholesterol

Americans' awareness of cholesterol and its potential negative effects on good health has greatly improved in recent years. Too much LDL ("bad") cholesterol and too little HDL ("good") cholesterol can result in the build up of cholesterol deposits in arteries leading to coronary heart disease or stroke.

When diet and exercise are not enough to help you control your cholesterol, Cholesterol Support may provide you a viable, natural aid. Cholesterol Support is an excellent choice for those wanting to maintain healthy cholesterol levels naturally. This unique formula contains policosanol, tocotrienols, gugulipids, soy isoflavones and B vitamins.

Policosanol. Derived from the coating on sugar cane, policosanol is now approved for treating cholesterol in two dozen countries. Because policosanol is a blood-thinning agent, those already on warfarin (Coumadin) and hemophiliacs should be cautious in its use.

Tocotrienols have been shown to be effective nutritional agents to treat high cholesterol in recent research programs. Further studies are needed before concrete benefits can be established.

Gugulipids have long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to prevent atherosclerosis.

Phosphatidylcholine, also known as lecithin, was shown in a 1999 study to improve metabolism of cholesterol in the digestive system. Further studies are needed to establish concrete benefits. 

Soy isoflavones have been shown in studies to reduce total cholesterol.  One study showed a total cholesterol reduction of over 9% and LDL cholesterol by almost 13%. Good HDL cholesterol was raised over 2%. However, further studies are needed.

Artichokes contain cynarin which provides antioxidant support.

Garlic enhances circulation and has traditionally been used to support healthy cholesterol levels. 

If you are looking for natural support for healthy cholesterol levels, Cholesterol Support is a complete product.
