Although it is by no
means the only major risk factor, elevated serum cholesterol is clearly
associated with a high risk of heart disease. Most medical doctors suggest
cholesterol levels should stay under 200 mg/dl (5.2 mmol/liter). Cholesterol
levels lower than 200 are not without risk, however, as many people with levels
below 200 have heart attacks.
With 28 ingredients,
including beta sitosterol, all working in together can help lower cholesterol
safely and naturally.*
Vitamins proprietary blend can help your cholesterol counts. My own Mother has
high cholesterol and this prompted me to create our own All Natural supplement
to get her off the quite possibly harmful prescription that she was on. Try it; We are sure you will be pleased with your results! So will your Doctor." *
As levels fall below
200, heart disease risk continues to decline. Many nutritionally oriented
doctors consider cholesterol levels of no more than 180 to be optimal. Medical
laboratories now subdivide total cholesterol measurement into several
components including LDL cholesterol (which is directly linked to heart
disease) and HDL cholesterol (the so-called "good" cholesterol). The
relative amount of HDL to LDL is more important than total cholesterol. For
example, it is possible for someone with very high HDL to be at relatively low
risk for heart disease even with total cholesterol above 200. Evaluation of
changes in cholesterol requires consultation with a healthcare professional and
includes measurements of blood levels of total cholesterol as well as HDL and
If your cholesterol is
a little higher than it should be, you're probably trying to adjust it by
following a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Unfortunately for many
of us, this approach just doesn't do the trick. Natural treatments, however,
may help reduce moderately elevated cholesterol levels. Of these, inositol
hexaniacinate (no-flush niacin) and pantethine are vitamins accumulating
notable track records, as is the herbal supplement guggulipid. Its cholesterol
reducing actions are thought to be due to mevinolin, a chemical identical to
lovastatin. Lovastatin and other statins are chemicals used in conventional medicine
to reduce cholesterol. In 1999, lovastatin was also shown to reduce death rates
from cardiovascular disease.
Garlic is another herb
for cholesterol. The therapeutic effects of Garlic have been scientifically
validated in the area of cholesterol and triglyceride lowering, as well as its
strong antimicrobial properties. Research in Germany, India, France, China,
England and the United States demonstrate consistent results proving the
efficacy and safety of Garlic even in high doses. Known as a yang tonic in
Chinese medicine, Garlic will stimulate appetite and metabolism, clear toxins,
and act as an antimicrobial agent of the mucous membranes. A great deal of
recent work has been done on the sulphur bearing amino acids in Garlic.
Researchers have estimated
that for each one percent decrease in low-density lipoprotein (LDL)
cholesterol, heart attack risk drops by two percent. By comparison, each one
percent increase in HDL levels causes a three to four percent drop in heart
attack risk. For these reasons, investigators have tried to find out what
effects red yeast rice has on HDL levels. In one prominent study in China, the
conventional statin-based drug simvastatin (Zocor) was slightly better at
reducing total blood cholesterol than the red yeast rice concentrate
Xuezhikang. However, simvastatin was significantly better than Xuezhikang at
raising HDL levels. Similarly, an American clinical trial showed that
Xuezhikang caused predictable reductions in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol,
and triglyceride levels, but had little effect on HDL. However, in a study
presented at a March, 1999 American Heart Association conference, red yeast
rice increased HDL levels by an average of 15 percent.
