Cholesterol Free: Natural Supplements vs Man Made Supplements

Jun 25, 2008
Terrible side-effects often are associated with supplements when lowering your Cholesterol. It is important to note, that not all supplements inline with a proper lifestyle (exercise & diet) produce those nasty side-effects. When it comes to making a choice in the type of supplements, there are really only two to select from, man made or natural.

Man Made Supplements

One example of man made supplements are Statin drugs. In the medical field, Statin drugs are rather famous for being effective in lowering cholesterol, yet just like any other man made drug, the usage of them can cause some undesired side-effects. One of the side-effect associated with Statin drugs usage is muscle ache. If this arises it is advised that you inform your doctor immediately.

Other more serious concerns one might have is that when taking Statin drugs you may get some kidney dysfunction. It has been advised that when someone is using Statin as a drug for Cholesterol, they should also take Co-Enzyme Q10 to replenish the enzyme that is being destroyed by the Statin drug.

Natural supplements can reduce cholesterol!

Yes it is true, natural supplements that help reduce cholesterol can be easily found in the market and do not have any side-effects associated with them. Policosanol, a pure extract of sugar cane wax, is deemed one of the most effective cholesterol lowering supplements in the world today. It is able to increase the amount of HDL (good) cholesterol and lower the amount of LDL (bad) cholesterol naturally without any side-effects and has been said to outperform the man-made drugs in the market by a large margin.

Policosanol have similar extrats as those contained in Green Tea, as does Beta Sitosterol. Beta Sitosterol, can be located in such foods as soybeans and in corn oil which is believed to have anti-cancer immune boosting properties. Another herb which comes from India, Guggulipid extract, also is know to have many of the natural solutions to high cholesterol problems. Guggulipid has been known to have helped treat many different types of illnesses, as well as reduce high cholesterol levels.
