CholestAssure - Helps To Support Healthy Cholesterol Levels
CholestAssure is comprised of a unique blend of vitamins, herbs, and plant sterols to help improve and maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Plant sterols work in a rather interesting way; they look a lot like cholesterol, so when they travel through the bloodstream they get in the way and prevent actual cholesterol from being absorbed. Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, has been used for decades to improve cholesterol levels. Niacin works by increasing High Density Lipoprotein/HDL (good cholesterol) and lowering Low Density Lipoprotein/LDL (bad cholesterol). Niacin also helps to keep your skin, eyes, digestive and central nervous systems healthy. Gugulipid is derived from the Guggul or Commiphora tree and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to treat various ailments including rheumatism, arthritis, skin diseases, pain, etc., but more recently gugulipids are being used as a hypolipidemic (cholesterol lowering agent). Policosanol is an extract from sugar cane that works by lowering cholesterol production in the liver and by breaking down the LDL in the bloodstream. Policosanol also has been shown to reduce the stickiness of platelets in the bloodstream which can help reduce blood clots.
