Cholester-X Plus is a proprietary blend of herbs and vitamins. It contains Gugulipid, which is extracted from the gum of the plant Commiphora mukul, and has been used by Ayurvedic practitioners in India for centuries for the management of healthy cholesterol. References to this approach are found in Charak Samhita (100 B.C.) and Sushruta Samhita (600 B.C.). Significant lowering of lipid levels in blood has been observed in the publicly available scientific literature.
This formulation also uses Pantethine, which is also known to lower lipid levels. In one study, consumption of 300 mg per day lowered the LDL by 36% and HDL increased by 38%. Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for heart health have been documented extensively. Virtually every cell of the human body contains CoQ10. Heart muscle contains the greatest amount of CoQ10. Some cholesterol drugs may actually reduce the body's ability to produce CoQ10 and hence may deplete it's normal concentrations.
Formulated in vegetarian capsules.
