Cholesterol Support Formula containing therapeutic doses of Policosanol, Plant Sterols, and Homocysteine Factors, all may reduce high cholesterol.
Niacin- This B vitamin lowers cholesterol and improves circulation.
Vitamin B-6- Studies show that B-6 may help prevent arterioscerosis. Low levels of B-6 in the body may increase the risk of a heart attack.
Folic Acid- This B vitamin improves the ability if blood vessels to dilate and handle blood flow. This is very important for those who are at risk of or have high cholesterolbecuase theor blood vessels may be narrow. Strong flexible bloos vellels are needed to prevent cardiovascular and clotting problems.
Vitamin B-12- A deficiency in this B vitamin may cause increased levels of homocysteine to occur in the body. Too much homocysteinr has been shown to be a risk factor for strokes, heart attacks and blood clots.
Chromium (as polynicotinate)- this mineral lowers total cholesterol levels and improves HLD (good) to LDL (bad) ratios.
Policosanol- This mixture of fatty alcohols derived from the waxes of sugar cane lowers cholesterol. Policosanol lowers cholesterol by preventing the formation of cholesterol in the liver.
Plant Sterols- Natural substances found in plants that lower cholesterol. Sterols are similar in structure to cholesterol and compete with it in absorption and transport. If more sterols and less cholesterol are absorbed, then less cholesterol will be delivered tot he liver and blood cholesterol levels will be lower.
Tocotrientol- This member of the vitamin E family has important effects on lowering cholesterol. Tocotrienols seem to act on a specific enzyme in the body, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme. (HMG-CoA). Tocotrienols repress this enzyme, resulting in less cholesterol being made by the liver sells and in turn reducign cholesterol in the blood.
Gugulipid® ( Commiphora Mukul Extract)- This extract from the trunk of the mukul myrrh tree, found in India, lowers cholesterol levels. Gugulipid®, the standardized extract used here, lowers cholesterol by helping the body excrete cholesterol throght bile to be removed with waste. It also helps the body to absorb cholesterol into cells for beneficial use and stimulates the liver to take LDL (bad) cholesterol from the blood and process it into HDL (good) cholesterol.
Soybean Extract- This unique kind of soy, SOYLIFE® provides a range of concentrates and extracts from soy germ that are rich in isoflavones. SOYLIFE® provides not only isoflavones but a whle spectrum of beneficial soy compounds. Proprietary science backs the health benefits of SOYLIFE®, including reducing a major risk factor for heart disease, hypercholesterolmia (high blood cholesterol levels). Studies show that soy can decrease total cholesterol as well as decrease LDL, "bad cholesterol." The tow main isoflavones in soy, genisteina and daidzen, may slow or stop the formaiton of blood clots.
Phosphatidylcholine- This nutrient is the pruified extract form lecithina nd it suppplies choline to the body. Phosphatidylcholine is a better form than choline alone. Choline is essenital for proper liver function and in turn, proper cholesterol metabolism.
Pantethine- This particular kind of pantethine is a high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade brand called Pantesin™. Pantesin™ is special because it is manufactured under strict control standards and extensive research has been done showing the benefits of Pantesin™. studies show that Pantesin™ lowder LDL (bad) while increasing HLD (good) cholesterol and lowers triglycerides. Pantesin™ also has been shown to accelerate the metabolism of fats in the artery walls.
Oat Bran- This nutrient provides fiber needed to manage and prevent cholesterol problems.
Garlic- This herb had been widely tested for its use in treating cholesterol. Garlic may prevent atherosclerosis by lowering cholesterol levels, inhibiting platelet stickiness and reducing plaque deposits in the body.
Grape Seed Extract- This herb contains a powerful antioxidant called oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). OPCs are important in promoting vascular health by strengthening capillaries. Healhty capillaries are required to efficiently allow blood to carry nutrients and oxygen throught the body.
Artichoke Extract (Cynara Scolymus L.)- Artichoke may be helpful in lowering cholesterol. This herb is known as a choleretic which means it stimulates bile flow thereby protecting the liver from damage due to chemical toxins. This herb inhibist the oxidation of LDL (bad) and interferes with the absorption of cholesterol. The extract used here has the highest caffoylquinic acids content available; these acids are responsible for the choleretic and hepato stimulating efects of artichoke.
Inositiol- This nutrient is involved in the body's use of cholesterol. read more below...
