Policosanol supports healthy circulation and helps maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range.*
What is policosanol?
Policosanol is a unique source of natural compounds from sugar cane. Policosanol is comprised of various aliphatic waxy alcohols (e.g. octacosanol). Aliphatic compounds are a type of compound that occurs in plants. Soluble fiber is another type of compound that occurs in plants.
Research indicates that long chain aliphatic compounds in policosanol support healthy total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol already in the normal ranges , promote healthy circulation and are well tolerated.*
When compared to other products used to support healthy cholesterol levels, policosanol was found to perform as good or better. An added benefit was reported; individuals participating in the policosanol studies tended to stay in the studies and not drop out.*
Benefits have been reported in healthy adults and those who manage healthy blood sugar levels.*
Like other over-the-counter products, policosanol can support normal platelet aggregation. This may be a benefit for many people, however, talk with your healthcare practitioner if you have concerns with blood viscosity or are planning medical procedures.*
