These cholesterol supplements are safer and more effective than Zocor, Lipitor or Crestor. 

Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements improve cholesterol ratios and lower cholesterol naturally.

The chances are good that you found this website because your doctor wants you to go on Lipitor, Zocor, Vytorin or some other "miracle" statin drug to lower your cholesterol. These statin drugs will lower your cholesterol dramatically but are the side effects worse than the cure?

A study at the U.C. San Diego School of Medicine reported the following side effects from patients taking Lipitor

  • sexual function problems, fatigue and/or dizziness

  • muscle pain or weakness and occasionally something called “myopathy” occurs, involving actual damage to muscle tissue

  • changes in memory, attention, or concentration. Some people have trouble finding the right word; may forget tasks they started to do. Some describe "holes in their memory" and others worry that they are developing Alzheimer's.

  • depression and changes in mood.

  • cholesterol medications can lower activity of the brain chemical serotonin. Some people report that when they are on statins they are more irritable and impatient.

  • peripheral neuropathy (tingling and numbness or burning pain) may occur with statins.

  • liver function abnormalities.

  • Statins also deplete coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10), one of your body's most important defenses against heart disease, cancer and premature aging.

Is there a better way to improve your cholesterol safely and without the side effects of statin drugs?

The answer is a resounding yes!

Cholest-Check™cholesterol supplements are the answer to naturally lowering cholesterol and reducing other heart attack risks.

Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements combine the following powerful, innovative cholesterol support ingredients:

  • 20 mg of policosanol derived from sugar cane

  • 60 mg coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

  • 200 mg niacin (non-flush)

  • 50 mg grape seed extract

A recent randomized, double-blind study of 437 patients showed that participants who took Policosanol once a day with the evening meal for 24 weeks lowered their LDL cholesterol from 18% to 25%.

  • The Policosanol group also increased their HDL cholesterol from 15% to 28%. High levels of HDL-cholesterol may be the most important factor in protecting against cholesterol-induced arterial disease.

  • It is the HDL molecule that removes plaque from arterial walls.

"The results from the clinical studies involving nearly 30,000 total patients clearly demonstrate that policosanol is overall the absolute best answer to high cholesterol levels, whether we are talking about a nutritional supplement, herbal product or drug."    Dr. Michael Murray,
Author of  Encyclopedia of  Natural Medicine

The policosanol contained in Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements contains over 50% octacosanol, a derivative of a wax from sugar cane plants, found to suppress lipid accumulation in fatty tissue and inhibit oxidation of LDL cholesterol in the blood stream.

The amount of octacosanol contained in the policosanol formula used in Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements is the same amount found beneficial in clinical studies in Cuba.

The American Heart Journal
reported the following on policosanol:

"At doses of 10 to 20 mg per day policosanol lowers total cholesterol by 17% to 21% and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by 21% to 29% and raises high-density lipoprotein cholesterol by 8% to 15%"
American Heart Journal

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Stephen Sinatra, a board certified cardiologist who integrates conventional medicine with nutrition at his New England Heart and Longevity Center says:

"I have long considered CoQ10 a wonder nutrient because of its ability to support heart health."
Stephen Sinatra, M.D.

CoQ10 has been called one of the "most important dietary supplements of the new millennium." CoQ10 transfers the energy from food into ATP and is one of the most potent antioxidants known.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) provides the "energizing spark" that enables the heart muscle to pump blood more efficiently, and it's a great scavenger of free radicals.

Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements include niacin in the form of inositol hexanicotinate, which provides all of the exceptional benefits of niacin without the flushing that can sometimes accompany other forms.

Niacin is the best agent known to raise blood levels of HDL, which helps remove cholesterol deposits from the artery walls. It has also been shown to be very effective in combination with statin drugs.

In daily doses of 250-500 mg, niacin commonly increases protective HDL cholesterol by 15-20%. Studies suggest that an increase of 1 mg/dL in HDL is associated with a roughly 2–4% reduction in coronary heart disease outcomes.

Note: Inositol hexanicotinate delivers niacin to the bloodstream slowly, eliminating the niacin “flush,” and has not been associated with impaired liver health or other side effects of conventional or “slow-release” niacin.

Grape Seed Extract
Last but not least the cholesterol supplements in
(Cholest-Check™) include 50 mg of ActiVin® Grape seed extract, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in numerous clinical studies to be vastly useful in supporting heart health.

Grape seed extract is derived from the small seeds (and occasionally the skins) of red grapes--the same kind that are pressed to make wine.

The most valuable flavonoids in grape seed extract are procyanidolic oligomers (also known as proanthocyanidins), commonly called PCOs.

  • PCOs in grape seed extract have been shown to be 50 times more potent than vitamin E, a potent inhibitor of oxidation. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol is a key factor leading to heart disease and heart attacks.

  • PCOs have also been shown to prevent the stickiness of blood platelets that can lead to blood clots and strokes.

  • Patients taking grape seed extract PCO have reported reduced blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Warning: Do NOT buy any cholesterol supplements
unless they meet the following criteria:

  1. Be certain that the GMP (Good
    Manufacturing Practices) Seal is on the label of cholesterol supplements.
    This guarantees that what you see on the label is in the bottle.

  2. Know who you are doing business with and their reputation. You should be aware that cholesterol supplements are not regulated by FDA and there are a lot of products that are not what they seem to be. In a study conducted by ConsumerLab four of seven policosanol products tested contained only 23% to 78% of the amount listed on the label.

  3. Use only Cholest-Check™ cholesterol supplements made from sugar cane as this is the form that was used in the numerous clinical studies.  Avoid policosanol products made from bees wax.

    The University of Kansas Hospital "Natural Pharmacist" website reports:

        "There is reason for concern that policosanol products made with bees wax may not be effective."

  4. Beware when dealing with giant internet discounters. They offer "bargain" prices but do not have the knowledge or desire to answer your questions. We all like a bargain but cheap and unknown products are no bargain.

  5. Be certain that the supplier of your cholesterol lowering supplements provides a 90 day unconditional guarantee.

You may still be skeptical. I know I was when I first learned about policosanol and before I began to use it to change my life.

 Following are my personal results:

"After 60 days on policosanol I had my cholesterol checked and my total cholesterol dropped from 255 to 226 but the best news is that the HDLs went up 43% and LDLs dropped 14% for an improvement in the important Cholesterol to HDL ratio of a whopping 38%. Triglycerides also dropped 100 points, from 167 to 67,a 60% improvement."
