Policosanol

$64.95

Policosanol is a mixture of natural substances extracted from the waxy coating of sugarcane stems and leaves.

In our bloodstream, cholesterol exists in two forms. One is “bad” (LDL cholesterol), in the sense that it can lead to the formation of plaque in our arteries, especially when it becomes oxidised by free radicals. The other is “good” (HDL cholesterol), in the sense that it does not do this but is instead transported to the liver for metabolism or excretion.


About 1/3 of our cholesterol comes from our diet. 2/3 of cholesterol is produced by our own body through conversion of AcetylCoA.
 
Medical studies* show that Policosanol is a good natural alternative for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
