Cholesterol Herbal Extract

Karen Morris

In this week’s blog, I’d like to highlight one of our best sellers, the Cholesterol Herbal Extract. Let’s get into it!

So, what is cholesterol?

According to medlineplus.gov

“Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in all the cells in your body. Your body needs some cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help you digest foods.”

High cholesterol levels can begin to cause problems if they are not taken care of. 

A blood test is the only way to know if your cholesterol is not a healthy level and if it may be too high or on the rise. It is key to control high cholesterol levels before they get to a stage like that. We have crafted our blend of herbal extracts to help stabilise high cholesterol levels in patients who are currently experiencing this.

The blend of herbs – Gymnema, Globe Artichoke, Rhubarb, Hawthorn Berries and Albizia function in a way which stabilises high cholesterol.

All the ingredients work to reduce risk of heart disease and stroke. For example, Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre ) improves Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels, which therefore reduces heart disease risk. Gymnema sylvestre may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and triglycerides. While Gymnema gets its fame from lowering blood sugar levels and reducing sugar cravings, research shows that it may also influence fat absorption and lipid levels.

Globe Artichoke (Cynara scolymus) – A large review in over 700 people found that supplementing with artichoke leaf extract daily for 5–13 weeks led to a reduction in total and “bad” LDL cholesterol. 

Hawthorn Berries – Research suggests that hawthorn can lower cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad cholesterol”), and triglycerides (fats in the blood). It seems to lower accumulation of fats in the liver and the aorta (the largest artery in the body, located near the heart). Hawthorn fruit extract may lower cholesterol by increasing the excretion of bile, reducing the formation of cholesterol, and enhancing the receptors for LDLs. It also seems to have antioxidant activity.

With prevention being key to lowering risks of high cholesterol, there are some great ways to lower high cholesterol risk through switching up some lifestyle factors. 

Some great ways to lower high cholesterol include;

1) Eat a low-salt diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables and whole grains

2) Limit the amount of animal fats and use good fats in moderation

3) Maintain a healthy weight

4) Quit smoking

5) Exercise on most days of the week for at least 30 minutes

6) Drink alcohol in moderation, if at all

7) Manage stress – meditation, self care routine and yoga can really help with this. As can journaling, talking with a friend and getting out into nature. 

Our Cholesterol Herbal Extract is a dose of 2ml twice daily.
