Mum and high cholesterol
My mum recently went to the doctors and got her cholesterol checked. It came back as high and the doctor wanted to put her on statins but said they'd try the diet route first, all the doctor said was to cut out fat from her diet. (Because its so evil)There's a history of high cholesterol in the family already so I wouldn't put it down to her life style. I wouldn't say she's majorly overweight either. She's always cooked the family meals from fresh too. I've got her cooking with coconut oil now too. Shes started going to exercise classes, cardio machines/circuit kinda stuff.Looking for some advice on what supplements can help her reduce her cholesterol. I looked at krillipid but the site it was on looked like the very first label and I don't know if it would still be good. Anyone got any advice?

Quality fish oil. Several grams of taurine.

I've been told that RYR does not work because of the FDA stepping in and the statin like derivative is removed from the supplement.Originally Posted by Chub

look into iForce Heart Help, which uses Bergamonte (extracts from Citrus Bergamia Risso) to help lower bad (LDL) cholesterol, raise good (HDL) cholesterol, overall healthy blood triglyceride levels, and it helps maintain stable blood sugar levels. seems like the type of product that would definitely benefit your mom. That and a quality fish oil should definitely help improve her levels

Ryr no longer contains the statin it used to, as such it will do nothing.
The active in HeartHelp is clinically proven to work on the other hand.

Isn't the ingredient in heart help considered a Statin?. I thought I read mr.cooper69 post that.

2-3g EPA/DHA + Heart Help = should help out quite a bit.

It acts in the same fashion as a statin, however presents none of the side effects commonly associated with statins like lipitor.
