This unique product was designed by Joel Fuhrman, M.D., specifically to meet the needs of his patients who still have LDL cholesterol above 100 mg/dl after dietary intervention and who desire effective and natural maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels.
No other product on the market offers this combination of quality ingredients: cholesterol-lowering plant sterols plus high-antioxidant extracts of pomegranate, chokeberry, and green tea.
Pomegranate contains a unique antioxidant called punicalagin. The pomegranate extract used in LDL Biotect included the full array of polyphenols present in the fruit's seeds, husk and juice and is particularly rich in punicalagin. Chokeberry is the dark, pea-sized fruit of a shrub native to the Northeastern and Great Lakes regions of the U.S., which is rich in flavonoid antioxidants. Green tea is the most concentrated dietary source of a potent flavonoid antioxidant called EGCG.This combination of phytochemical-rich extracts of healthful natural foods complements the plant sterols in this comprehensive supplement.
Plant sterols (also known as phytosterols) naturally occur in a range of plant sources such as vegetable oils, nuts, grains, and seeds. They function as cholesterol-lowering agents in the blood by blocking the absorption of cholesterol from food during digestion and by blocking the re-absorption of cholesterol manufactured by the liver.
Plant sterols have long been recognized, and are FDA approved, for their capacity to reduce LDL cholesterol. Foods containing at least 0.4 grams per serving of plant sterols, taken twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 0.8 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. LDL Biotect provides 0.54 grams of plant sterols in each two-capsule serving.
*Foods containing at least 0.4 grams per serving of plant sterols, taken twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 0.8 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
