Cholesterol Support - 90 Vcaps
 
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Supports Healthy Cholesterol Metabolism
  • Policosanol from Sugar Cane
  • Tocotrienols, Guggul, and Garlic
  • Vegetarian Formula

Cholesterol Support is a dietary supplement specifically formulated to support your body's natural metabolism of cholesterol.  In addition to this effective supplement, we recommend a diet low in saturated fats and regular aerobic exercise.

NOW Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFA) derived from sugar cane, a superior source of these natural plant waxes.  Non-clinical studies have shown that the fatty alcohol constituents in Policosanol possess considerable antioxidant activity, can protect serum lipids against free radical attack and support healthy immune function.  Policosanol can support cardiovascular health through these and other mechanisms.

Policosanol reduces your total cholesterol mainly by reducing your LDL-cholesterol-bad cholesterol-, which is the dominant kind in your bloodstream. At the same time, it increases your HDL-cholesterol -good cholesterol-, which exists in smaller amounts. It also reduces your triglycerides, which is fat in the blood.

Guggul offers considerable benefit in preventing and treating atherosclerotic vascular disease (Heart disease). It is most effective in lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.It also raises the level of good cholesterol (HDL).

Guggul helps rid your body of harmful cholesterol by converting it into bile. New research published in Science Express shows that chemicals known as guggulsterones block the activity of the Farnesoid X Receptor (FXR), a protein which regulates cholesterol metabolism.

Garlic helps to lower cholesterol, fight cancer, lower hypertension, help with diabetes, arthritis & Alzheimer’s disease and infections, including the common cold.  It is anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial.
