  4. I'd also nominate Niacin for HDL boosting.

  5. Well obviously my vote is for Toco-8. If anyone doesn't agree then I would suggest reading my post on tocotrienols for lowering LDL Cholesterol.

    JN230 nice post.

  7. Its my understanding that Red Rice yeast doesnt have the statin in it to help with lowering LDL, or does it still have something in it that still helps to lowere LDL.

  8. Oats. No high GI carbs.

    Nearly halved my cholesterol on oats after a many year diet of high GI junk food.

    Give it nine months and I'll see what Toco-8 and NAC/red rice (AI's cycle support) do.

    If I was going to nail it to a product I'd go for Cycle Support - great stuff allround.

    Out of those - Toco 8.


  10. Looks like maybe oats should have been on the list as well. I prefer Toco-8 for the other benefits, plus you can avoid the carbs in the oats. Some diets don't make room for them.

  11. Gunna go ahead and say ap or glycobol.

    Berberine HCL has been shown to upregulate the LDL receptor uptake in liver. Pretty interesting. Works better then metformin on chpolesterol levels

    Toco-8 along with fish oil. Yes Toco-8 is great for me when doing KETO...

    Thats what I'm thinking too....

  14. for some of us that are prone to Male Pattern Baldness that benefit of toco 8 is a huge bonus as well

  15. Niacin gets good reviews, but if you have uric acid/gout issues like I do, than this isn't an option. I've had very good success using AI's Cycle Support to get my cholesterol incheck. Toco-8 looks promising though.

  16. I have battled high cholesterol for over 30 years. I have avoided statins because of the potential side effects. Red Yeast Rice is basically a statin. If you’re going to use any statin be sure and supplement with CoQ10 as statins lower this valuable supplement in the body and it is absolutely necessary for good hearth health. I use Taco 8 daily and it helps to a small degree. I have tried Policosanol, Sytrinol and Niacin. Niacin is hard on the liver so use only under a doctor care. Policosanol only works if it is made from sugar cane otherwise it is worthless. Sytrinol didn’t do a thing to lower my cholesterol. The best supplement I have found for controlling cholesterol is beta sitosterol. It raises HDL and lowers LDL and overall cholesterol values. I take it with each meal. It has dropped my cholesterol form 360 to around 240. I am happy with these numbers since all of the research I have done indicates that values below 200 lower the immune system and are detrimental to good health. The drug companies want these values as low as possible to sell more statins. They are now suggesting and overall value of 180. My research indicates the best values are between 200 and 240. Moreover, beta sitosterol is also good for the prostate.

    Any specific brand you are using? I've been taking Mega Strength Beta Sitosterol that's a combo of Beta, Campesterol & Stigmaseterol. Right now my Cholersterol is at 230 with a ratio of 4.4 down from 248.

    And HDL boosting is what matters. According to the American Heart Association, there is an inverse relation to HDL levels and Heart Disease...not LDL.

    So low HDL = greater chance of heart disease.

    Its really the ratio that is important. I believe you want at least a 3.5:1.

    Total:HDL

    Also, look up the statin paradox. Interesting stuff out there.

    Yep Higher HDL can make up for slightly high LDL. Helps keep LDL from sticking to artery walls.

  23. gotta remember its all about ratios! like stated above, but the main point was when diet and exercise isnt enough but you dont want to use RX like statins
