Health Benefits of Policosanol - Lowers and blocks cholesterol naturally!
• Cardiovascular Health
• Protects Serum Lipids
• Promotes heart and circulatory health
• Helps maintaining normal cholesterol levels
• As effective and much safer than anti-cholesterol drugs
• Improves blood circulation to the brain and extremities
Numerous clinical studies confirm Policosanol’s ability to promote heart and circulatory health. Policosanol helps to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
Policosanol is one of the most promising nutritional supplements in recent history. It is a combination of long-chain fatty alcohols (no biological similarity to ethanol) that are isolated and refined from rice wax. Octacosanol is the most important of these isolated alcohols, followed by seven other prominent high aliphatic (open-chain structure) alcohols. This unique extract was originally studied in Cuba as a cholesterol-lowering agent and is an approved treatment for high cholesterol in about two-dozen countries.
Policosanol appears to slow down cholesterol synthesis in the liver and increase liver re-absorption of low-density lipoproteins (LDL). Policosanol has also been shown to increase levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL).
A high level of blood cholesterol, increases the likelihood of developing health problems such as heart disease. There are five types of cholesterol, but it is the HDL and LDL cholesterol that we look to in assessing the potential for disease.
HDL, referred to as the "good" cholesterol, has the ability to clear built-up cholesterol from the arteries and help in its removal from the body. LDL, the "bad" cholesterol, is linked to heart disease and is involved in the fatty build-up on artery walls known as atherosclerosis or "hardening of the arteries". Recent research indicates that low HDL levels are a strong predictor of cardiovascular disease.
One of Policosanolís important actions is to reduce the abundance of cells in the arteries by inhibiting the oxidation of LDL. Oxidized LDL is dangerous. It promotes the destruction of blood vessels by creating a chronic inflammatory response. Oxidized LDL can also provoke metalloproteinase enzymes. These enzymes promote blood vessel destruction, partly by interfering with HDL's protective effect. Healthy arteries are lined with a smooth layer of cells that permit the blood to pass with no resistance. Unhealthy arteries become overwhelmed with cells, causing the blood passage to narrow and eventually be blocked which can lead to heart attack.
