Policosanol (10 mg)

by Vitabase

  • Shown in clinical studies to be effective at supporting healthy cholesterol levels
  • A natural waxy substance from the coating of sugar cane or yams.

There are thousands of cholesterol supplements and herbs on the market that claim to be natural remedies for lowering cholesterol. Sometimes it is difficult to know which to choose without knowing the research behind the supplements.

Policosanol is perhaps one of the most exciting additions to natural cholesterol supplementation. Derived from the coating on sugar cane, policosanol cholesterol complexes are now used in many countries to support healthy cholesterol levels. It works by inhibiting the formation of cholesterol in the body.

In clinical studies policosanol reduced LDL cholesterol by 21 to 29% and increased HDL between 8 and 15%.

Because policosanol is a blood-thinning agent, hemophiliacs and those already on warfarin (Coumadin) should be cautious in its use.
