Cho‑less‑terin takes a natural approach to cholesterol management. Our formula features the nutraceuticals red yeast extract, guggul lipids, beta-glucans, green tea extract, and plant sterols in a highly bioavailable matrix of red palm fruit oil. Sixteen studies involving 590 people with high cholesterol levels have shown that sterols from plants alone can reduce total cholesterol by an average of 10%, and harmful LDL cholesterol by 15%. The combination of actives in Cho‑less‑terin can reduce total cholesterol levels even more.
Helps lower LDL and total cholesterol. Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Our dark-coloured softgels have a fresh look; they will now have a deep red colour. We have replaced a carob-based nonmedicinal in the composition of our softgel with annatto seed extract. Annatto extract is sourced from the seeds of this tropical fruit. Annatto (Bixa orellana L.) is a rich source of tocotrienols. It has a long history of use as an antimicrobial and is a potent antioxidant. It also adds UV protection and stability to the contents of our softgels.
