Policosanol Extra Strength 20 mg Capsules

 The Policosanol formulated for Vital Life Nutritionals is a derivative of pure sugar cane. In clinical studies policosanol has been found to have the same mechanism of action as many cholesterol medications without the side effects which accompany statin drugs.

Policosanol is a mixture of nine high primary aliphatic alcohols designed to support healthy cholesterol. Octacosanol, the main component in policosanol, works as a powerful antioxidant to help maintain healthy arteries. It has been found to lower LDL cholesterol in the bloodstream and increase HDL cholesterol. The other aliphatic alcohols included in policosanol are also important components in helping to support cardiovascular health.

  • Policosanol does not affect CoQ10 levels as statin drugs have been found to do.
  • Few known side effects or prescription-drug interactions
  • Once daily 20mg vegetarian capsule
  • In one German study, 10-20 mg of policosanol showed 21-29% lower LDL and 8-15% higher HDL cholesterol
  • Made from pure sugar cane from China
  • Ingredients are comparable to those used in Cuban studies showing reduction in LDL cholesterol and increase in HDL cholesterol.
  • Gluten free
