Policosanol Micro-Tabs $26.00
Mixture of aliphatic alcohols derived from sugar cane wax that promotes both lower LDL and increased HDL cholesterol levels without side effects.
Each Micro-tab contains 23mg of Policosanol
Policosanol is indicated for use to assist in the following:
· Lowering levels of Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol.
· Raising levels of High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol
· Inhibiting lipid oxidation
Accumulation of Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the arteries can decrease blood flow to your brain, heart, and other crucial areas of the body. This can cause not only hypertension, but also angina, strokes, heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases. One key aide in preventing LDL buildup is High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) or "good" cholesterol. HDL-C not only curbs LDL buildup, but also removes excess cholesterol from the bloodstream. Inhibiting cholesterol oxidation in the blood stream is also important in maintaining good cardiovascular health. Not allowing cholesterol to harden in the arteries allows for greater blood flow and more oxygen delivered to vital organs and muscle tissue. Policosanol, a mixture of various aliphatic alcohols, has been found to raise levels of HDL-C in the bloodstream, as well as reduce LDL-C and slow down cholesterol oxidation. (2)
Octacosanol, the main ingredient in Policosanol, works as a powerful antioxidant to help maintain healthy arteries. This in turn lowers LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream, helping to support healthy cholesterol levels.
New Micro-Tab manufacturing technology allows for a much smaller tablet than usual, even with full 23 mg potency. These miniature tablets can improve patient compliance.
Octacosanol may cause dizziness and increase nervous tension in patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, especially those taking Levodopa. (4) Also use caution if taking in conjunction with anticoagulant or anti-platelet medication. (5, 6)
