Policosanol is extracted from natural plant waxes, and is made up of long-chain fatty alcohols, or LCFAs. It has been studied in non-clinical settings and shows promise as a free radical fighting antioxidant. Other roles include aiding immune function and supporting heart health. Policosanol is also used as a cholesterol regulating supplement, to lower bad and increase good cholesterol. Now Policosanol uses 100 percent natural Policosanol from the rich source of sugar cane.
NOW Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFA) derived from sugar cane, a superior source of these natural plant waxes. Studies indicate that these plant waxes may influence healthy cholesterol metabolism. This formula also includes herbs such as Artichoke and Milk Thistle that are known to help support healthy liver function.
This double strength product has twice the Policosanol (20mg per capsule) as in our regular strength product (10mg per capsule).
