Ingredients : Cholesterol Supplements
Ingredients of various leading cholesterol lowering supplements include:
Policosanol is a pure extract of sugar cane wax, and is one of the most effective ways of naturally lowering cholesterol. It has been demonstrated to not only lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, but also raise HDL (good) cholesterol.
Nicotinic acid (Niacin) lowers total and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and raises HDL cholesterol. As the actual dose needed for treatment is about 100 times more than the Recommended Daily Allowance for Niacin and is potentially toxic, the drug needs to be taken under a doctor's supervision.
Omega 3 Fish Oils
Omega 3 fatty acids from fish and plant sources reduce blood clotting, which is responsible of many heart attacks and arrythmia.
They have effected a decrease in triglycerides, arrythmia, thrombosis, plaque, blood pressure and increased arterial health.
