Allicin Max, Lesterol, 90 capsules
Formulation size 0 vegetarian capsule containing beta-sitosterol, allicin, cellulose, di-calcium phosphate, magnesium stearate and silica. Beta-sitosterol is one of hundreds of plant-derived 'sterol' compounds (including sterols and sterolins) that have structural similarity to the cholesterol made in our bodies. The most prevalent phytosterols in the diet are beta-sitosterol, compesterol and stigmasterol. Plant oils contain the highest concentration of phytosterols - so nuts and seeds contain fairly high levels and all fruits and vegetables generally contain some amount of phytosterols. Perhaps the best way to obtain beta-sitosterol is to eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds (which obviously brings numerous other benefits as well) or to take a daily dose of lesterol.
why is my cholesterol level important?
although there have been controversial discussions concerning the significance of high cholesterol levels alone for the incidence of arteriosclerosis (hardening of your coronary arteries), several recent studies clearly show that a correlation exists between the concentration of blood lipids and the narrowing of coronary vessels. Some studies, including the large framingham study, have revealed a significant correlation between serum cholesterol and the risk for heart disease in both men and women (castelli, 1988). Furthermore, a major 25 year follow-up study in the united states, europe and japan has recently shown that increased serum total cholesterol levels are directly associated with increased coronary heart disease in all cultures (verschuren et al. , 1995).
cholesterol is a waxy, fatty substance that is present in blood. Cholesterol is necessary for life. It aids in digestion and acts as a precursor for vitamin d and certain hormones. It is needed in minute amounts. The body manufactures all of the cholesterol it requires. Excess cholesterol is absorbed into the arterial walls, in the heart and elsewhere in the body causing the build up of layers of plaque that can ultimately lead to blockages. Heart attacks, strokesand other serious problems often result.
Take 1 capsule 3 times a day with a little cool liquid. Retest cholesterol levels after approximately 6 weeks treatment - adjust dose accordingly.
