Cholesterol Control
Cholesterol Control

The optimum level of cholesterol in the blood is one of the factors affecting the proper functioning of the heart, blood vessels, sex hormones, stress hormones, memory and concentration.

Cholesterol Control helps maintain normal levels of blood cholesterol, without negatively impacting the liver function and overall lipid metabolism. The product shows good results in adults with a history of hypercholesterolemia. Favorably affects the function of the cardiovascular system and digestive system.

Cholesterol Control is a dietary supplement, focused on maintaining healthy levels of blood lipids. It consists of three ingredients, which are complementary to each other - extract from fermented red rice, Gugulipid® (extract of the resin of the tree Commmiphora Mukul) and vitamin B3 in the form of nicotinic acid. These components have been proven to lower the total serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides and so-called "bad" (LDL) cholesterol, as well as to increase the "good" (HDL) cholesterol.

Function of the red rice extract:

Red rice extract is obtained by fermentation of rice (free of GMOs!) with Monascus purpureus. This product is used in Chinese medicine to strengthen the spleen, to improve the function of the digestive system and to support the function of the cardiovascular system. The extract of red rice contains standardized monacolin K – a phytostatin, which helps to maintain normal concentration of cholesterol in the blood. The optimum level of blood cholesterol is one of the factors affecting the proper functioning of the heart, blood vessels, sex hormones, stress hormones, memory and concentration.

The beneficial effect of the extract of red rice is mainly due to the presence of an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase - an enzyme which controls the amount of cholesterol produced in the liver. It is assumed that the relatively high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids and other natural ingredients that are found in the extract of the red rice could act synergistically with inhibitors of HMG-CoA reductase to provide additional health benefits.

Function of Gugulipid®:

The second ingredient in Cholesterol Control is Gugulipid®. This is an extract of the resin of a tree named Commiphora Mukul, which is used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 2000 years to treat variety of diseases. Studies have shown that the extract of this resin can reduce elevated lipid levels.

As active substances in the resin were identified stereoisomers E- and Z-guggulsterones. These are compounds which bind to the receptor for salts of the bile acid - so-called farnesoid X receptor (FXR), which is an important factor in the homeostasis of cholesterol. It is believed that this effect is due to the action of Gugulipid®, which decreases lipids.

Function of vitamin B3:

The last ingredient of Cholesterol Control is vitamin B3 – in the form of nicotinic acid. Vitamin B3 participates in metabolism of proteins, fats, amino acids and tissue respiration. Nicotinic acid helps to improve the concentration of lipoproteins in the blood and to lower the blood cholesterol. It also improves blood circulation by expanding capillaries and has a moderate antioxidant effect. Vitamin B3 is very important for the brain - it improves memory and coordination of movements.
