  1. What's a supplement that lowers cholesterol?


    Is there anything out there?

    I know that fish oil helps, especially by lowering triglycerides, and proper nutrition and exercise help increase HDL (good) cholesterol.

    What helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol?

    I had already considered this - for possible hair growth, too!

    PM on the way.

  12. CLA, conjugated lineolic acid, is a tranfatty acid that could help. Its a bit of a double edge sword as it lowers all levels of a lipid profile. So you could reduce cholesterol and LDL but potentially loose some HDL as well

    Take with food and/or use a flush-free version (Inositol Hexanicotinate). Oftentimes, unless you are megadosing it (which is horrible for your liver!), a tall glass of water is all it takes to be a few minutes away from mitigating the niacin flush.

    To the OP, do you consume alcohol on a regular basis, frequently use tylenol, or are on and off with 17-α-alkylated steroids/prohormones? If you have health problems or concerns regarding cholestrol, it's best to discuss this with your doctor, if you haven't done so already. Your doc has your medical records (oh yeah, and a doctorate of medicine degree) and can probably provide you with a more specific solution to your problem better than the barrage of small supplement company reps dancing with shameless product plugs (guilty). If you've done this, and you can't take certain meds because for undisclosed reasons, it's tough to say the safety of a supplement (which hasn't been under the same deal of scrutiny by the FDA as a prescription). For example, if you can't take statins (e.g. Lipitor), it's probably not a good idea to be taking red yeast rice, whose activity is derived from naturally occuring statins that incur the same side effects which prevent you from taking the prescribed statins.

    I read where the flush-free niacin doesn't help with cholesterol - but I'm not sure.

    I usually take 500mg of regular niacin every morning with my protein shake - I like the "skin burn" I get from it. My neck and face turn red and gets real hot feeling... actually, I'm not sure why I like that feeling, but I do

    To be honest, I kinda like it too. It also helps sleep aid medications kick in faster, making it ideal for night time, when you go to bed. Just be careful, taking large amounts of niacin and getting that nasty flush can put a lot of stress on the liver.

    The flush free version is inconclusive, but I don't believe it is something heavily studied since there's not a lot of money in a supplement you can buy for $5 at Wal-Mart. Drug companies do most of this funding for this sort of research, and there's not much point in giving away millions to university researchers only to shoot yourself in the foot with the findings. The science behind it is that the niacin is bound to inositol via esterification, which allows for a gradual release into the bloodstream. Regular niacin is free nicotinic acid, which when it spikes in your bloodstream, triggers a histamine release... thus creating the flush/rash. The flush is arbitrary to the cholesterol affects; however, you still need a certain blood level to get it to happen. If it's not breaking off the inositol molecule before it gets removed by the kidney and you piss it away, then you are probably not taking enough.

  21. I was under the impression red yeast rice no longer contains the natural statins.

    .... where did they go?

    I've never seen a YRY label that was actually standardized for statin content, although it's never been a product that's interested me.

    I'm merely wondering if the popularity has lead to rapid cultivation, leading to an inferior product over the years or if the FDA stepped in and mandated that the statins be removed from the supplement.

    Alcohol = Bud Light on the weekends
    Tylenol (or any painkiller) = rarely
    Steroids/PHs = nope

    Last fall my doc ran some bloodwork, and it was good news/bad news:

    LDL = 169/high (bad news)
    HDL = 71/very high (good news)
    Triglycerides = 39/very low (good news)

    Because I am in great physical condition, exercise a lot, eat healthy, and have no family history of heart/stroke problems, my doc said there was no need to rush to drugs (statins) to lower my LDL. We're going to check my cholesterol again in the spring and see where it's at.

    In the meantime, I've done some research, and one new way to look at cholesterol is not to worry so much about the overall (total) number, but more importantly, the ratio of good to bad. If that's true, I am in great shape because of my very high HDL levels.

    Great advice in your post, though. I appreciate the information and concern for my health!

    Thanks!

    You have bloodwork that shows you have elevated LDL already?
