A dietary supplement that has a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels. The complex formula is based on basic and effective ingredients that fight high cholesterol:
Plant Sterol Complex – 40% beta-sitosterol
If you are someone who is prone to developing high cholesterol, you may be interested in supplements that help maintain overall cardiovascular health, especially those that keep LDL cholesterol levels within healthy limits. One example is a plant sterol called beta-sitosterol.
Beta-sitosterol (B-S) is a phytosterol, which is a useful type of compound found in some plant foods.
One of the most common uses of B-S supplements and the benefits of eating foods with beta-sitosterol is to help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut. This lowers LDL “bad cholesterol”, which is associated with an increased risk of heart disease such as coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis.
Guggul, also known as guggulu and guggulipid, is a substance released from the myrrh tree (Commiphora mukul) after being injured. It has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat obesity, osteoarthritis and some skin conditions. Studies show that guggul can also lower total cholesterol levels, especially triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.
Cayenne pepper – Extract of hot red pepper
Cayenne is a shrub that originated in Central and South America and now grows in subtropical and tropical climates.
The benefits of cayenne pepper are numerous. It is used to aid digestion, including the treatment of upset stomachs, slowing intestinal gas, stopping stomach pain, stopping diarrhea and as a natural remedy for cramps.
It is also used in conditions of the heart and blood vessels – including to improve poor blood circulation, reverse excessive blood clotting, lower high cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
Allium sativum is a perennial plant of the Amaryllidaceae family, a class of bulbous plants that includes wild onions, leeks, onions and red onions.
It has numerous benefits on the body. Garlic helps regulate blood sugar levels, potentially stops or reduces the effects of some complications of diabetes, as well as fights infections, lowers LDL cholesterol and promotes blood circulation.
Policosanol – Cane sugar extract
Policosanol is a compound that is extracted from sugar cane and wheat waxes. Although these are not exactly cholesterol-lowering foods, they do contain chemicals that are isolated and ingested to affect blood flow and blood clotting.
The most common use of policosanol is to reduce dyslipidemia (high cholesterol).
Policosanol is thought to work by reducing the production of cholesterol in the liver and may also increase the amount of LDL that is broken down. It can also help maintain the functions of “good” HDL cholesterol.
