Details

Cholesterol is a fatty substance in the body that has several vital roles. It is a building block for various hormones and bile acids, and it plays a major role in stabilising cell membranes. While proper cholesterol levels are important to good health, the evidence demonstrates that elevated blood cholesterol levels together with other risk factors, may greatly contribute to cardiovascular disease. Cholesterol is transported in the blood by lipoproteins. The major categories of lipoproteins are very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). VLDL and LDL are responsible for transporting fats (primarily triglycerides and cholesterol) from the liver to the cells of the body. Elevations of either VLDL or LDL are associated with an increased cardiovascular risk. In contrast, HDL is responsible for returning fats to the liver for metabolism. A high HDL is associated with a low cardiovascular risk. When cholesterol levels increase in the blood and are not cleared properly by the liver, the cholesterol may deposit in the arteries at sites that have been damaged, weakened or inflamed due to free radical activity. These cholesterol deposits or “plaques” can contribute to cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death. Remember that elevated cholesterol levels may be a major cause of cardiovascular disease but cholesterol is not the only contributing risk factor, other important factors to consider are homocysteine levels, blood pressure, inflammation, cortisol levels, insulin resistance, obesity, stress, hormones, lifestyle, diet, toxicity, medical history, physical exercise, and hereditary factors. Hereditary factors may be positively influenced by a healthy diet and lifestyle.Clinicians Cholesterol Lo provides nutirent support for healthy blood lipid levels and circulation.

Dosage & Warnings

Take 2 capsules three times daily or as directed. Hyperthyroidism - Gugulipid may stimulate thyroid function. Use with caution in people with a medically diagnosed overactive thyroid function. When taken on an empty stomach, a mild but noticeable flushing may occur from the nicotinic acid content. There are no adverse effects from this reaction. 11 "The flushing reaction produced by nicotinic acid has been recognised for more than half a century. When taken on an empty stomach, crystalline nicotinic acid (but not nicotinamide) in doses as small as 10mg may produce a mild but noticeable flushing reaction. Although not desirable, such reactions produce no adverse consequences and they are seldom perceptible when small amounts of nicotinic acid are taken in tablet or capsule form or consumed with food" (Hathcock JN. Vitamins and minerals: efficacy and safety. Am J Clin Nutr. Aug 1997;66(2):427-437).
