Heart bypass survivor discovers the secret of lowering cholesterol without drugs

Dear Friend,

If your doctor has told you that your cholesterol is too high this may be one of the most important letters you will ever read. 

I'm going to tell you about policosanol, an all natural product derived from sugar cane that has been shown to be more effective in lowering cholesterol than the "statin" drugs at a fraction of the cost...and without the side effects such as liver dysfunction and muscle atrophy.

Now I know this may sound too good to be true and that you may be skeptical. I certainly was when I first heard about this amazing product.

My name is Gene Millen and for the last 10 years my wife Bernie and I have owned and operated the Vital Life Center, a health and wellness center for the "over 40 crowd." Our exercise and wellness program has been rated #1 in California 4 years in a row.

Benefits of Policosanol 

  • Lowers harmful LDL cholesterol levels that clog up your arteries.
  • Increases protective HDL cholesterol levels. HDL-cholesterol removes plaque from arterial walls.
  • Lowers Lp(a) cholesterol. Many researchers say this is the "baddest" form of cholesterol.
  • Reduces platelet aggregation (stickiness) which lowers risk of arterial blood clots.
  • Improves intermittent claudication (pain in the leg muscles due to inadequate blood supply).
  • Reduces the amount of cholesterol in the liver, heart and fatty tissue.
  • Policosanol may prevent and reverse atherosclerotic lesions and thrombosis (clotting).
  • Policosanol also inhibits the oxidation of dangerous LDL-cholesterol which promotes the destruction of blood vessels by creating a chronic inflammatory response.
  • Policosanol has also been used to enhance sports performance and libido.
  • Policosanol's cholesterol-lowering effects continue and do not lose their effect over time. 

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. Scientific studies show that people with the highest levels of HDL cholesterol have the greatest longevity.

Example of Typical Change
In Cholesterol Ratios With Policosanol



Incr/Decr % Change
Total Cholesterol 220 176 -44 -20%
LDLs 142 114 -28 -20%
HDLs 42 52


LDL/HDL Ratio 3.4 2.2


Chol/HDL Ratio 5.2 3.4


Statistical Normal Range for Men
1/2 of Average 1.0 3.4
Average 3.6 5.0
2X Average 6.3 9.6

Research shows that Policosanol may produce cholesterol-lowering effects within the first six to eight weeks of use. A daily dose of 10 mg of Policosanol in the evening produced lowered LDL cholesterol levels by 20 to 25 percent within six months. At 20 mg daily, LDL levels dropped by 25 to 30 percent. HDL levels increased by 15 to 25 percent after only two months. 

Owing to the significant expense of statin therapy, as well as to the potential for dangerous side effects that mandates regular physician follow-up…a comparable regimen, in which policosanol is used in place of statins, may represent a practical strategy. 

Nearly everyone using policosanol and willing to commit to health-protective eating can either prevent coronary disease, or prevent pre-existing coronary disease from progressing to a life-threatening event.”

Policosanol is the most thoroughly researched
natural cholesterol-lowering agent.

Over 30,000 patients have been involved in clinical trials and more than 20 double blind clinical trials have been completed. Policosanol has compared favorably to several cholesterol drugs in direct head to head trials. See partial list of research below.

Policosanol is exceptionally safe

Numerous clinical trails show that elderly persons, diabetic and those with liver damage can safely take Policosanol. Currently, studies show that Policosanol does not affect blood thinning and there is no interaction between Policosanol and blood-thinning medication such as warfarin. Policosanol is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.


Since cholesterol synthesis increases at night, the recommended starting dose is 10 mg of Policosanol after/or with the evening meal. If the response is not adequate after two months, the dose can be doubled to 20 mg.

Lesstanol™ Policosanol is extremely effective and  should only be taken by people who have high serum cholesterol levels. It is a good idea to have your cholesterol checked after 8  weeks of use and reduce your dosage of  Lesstanol™ Policosanol if it causes your cholesterol to drop below 150 mg/dL.

Some people who do not adequately suppress cholesterol with drug therapy may choose to add Lesstanol™ Policosanol to achieve better cholesterol control. Pregnant or nursing women should not take this product without consulting with a healthcare professional.

Policosanol Research (Partial list)

  • American Heart Association notes significance of Policosanol - Am Heart Journal, 2002 Feb;143(2):356-65 - "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%"
  • Policosanol more effective than statin drugs. New Hope Natural Media, 6/6/02 - "In a six-month study, 10 mg per day of Policosanol reduced total cholesterol by 16% and LDL cholesterol by 24%, and increased HDL cholesterol by 29%. Several other studies have compared Policosanol with some of the conventional medications used for lowering cholesterol and the results have shown Policosanol in the amount of 5 to 20 mg per day to be more effective than Lovastatin (Mevacor®), pravastatin (Pravachol®), and Simvastatin (Zocor®), with fewer reported side effects. While some prescription drugs used to lower cholesterol may cause liver and muscle problems in rare instances, people taking Policosanol have not suffered any serious side effects"
  • Policosanol study of menopausal women. In another recent study, the effects of Policosanol were measured on menopausal women in a randomized, double-blind, multicenter placebo-controlled trial. These women showed elevated total and LDL cholesterol despite a six-week standard lipid-lowering diet. Eligible patients were randomized to receive placebo or policosanol 5 mg/day for eight weeks and the dose was doubled to 10 mg/day during the next eight weeks. Policosanol (5 and 10 mg/day) significantly decreased LDL-cholesterol (17.3% and 26.7%, respectively) and total cholesterol (12.9% and 19.5%). HDL-cholesterol levels were raised by 7.4% at study completion. No drug-related adverse effects were observed.
  • Study Links Statins to Risk of Nerve Damage.  Doctor's Guide, 5/13/02 - "Compared to a "control" group of people who did not have neuropathy, people who had taken statins were 4 to 14 times more likely to develop polyneuropathy that did not have a known cause ... Any side effects of the drugs must be weighed against this "very substantial benefit," ... the study shows that polyneuropathy occurs in 1 out of every 2,200 patients who take statins"
  • Nutrition Science News, 11/01 -"Policosanol is similar in function and potency to some statin drugs ... After using 10 mg/day Policosanol for two years, study participants tripled their treadmill walking distance. The placebo group experienced insignificant change"
  • Effects of policosanol in older patients with type II hypercholesterolemia and high coronary risk - In still another new study published in the Journal of Gerontology and Biological Science-Medical Science, the effects of policosanol in older patients with high cholesterol and more than one other atherosclerotic risk factor was investigated. After six weeks on a lipid-lowering diet, patients randomly received a placebo or policosanol.
  • Policosanol (5 and 10 mg/day) significantly reduced LDL-cholesterol (16.9% and 24.4%, respectively) and total cholesterol (12.8% and 16.2%, respectively), while significantly increasing HDL-cholesterol by 14.6% and 29.1%, respectively. Triglyceride levels remained un-changed. Policosanol, but not the placebo, significantly improved cardiovascular capacity, which was assessed using the Specific Activity Scale. No serious adverse experiences occurred in the policosanol patients. The conclusions of this study were that policosanol is effective, safe and well tolerated in older patients with high cholesterol.
  • Leg Cramps - A long-term study of Policosanol in the treatment of intermittent claudication Angiology 2001 Feb;52(2):115-125 - "After 6 months of therapy, Policosanol significantly increased (p < 0.01) the initial claudication distance from 125.9 +/- 8.7 m to 201.1 +/- 24.8 m and the absolute claudication distance from 219.5 +/- 14.1 m to 380.7 +/- 50.2 m. These effects did not wear off but improved after long-term therapy
