A friend of mine has high cholesterol 252 his doctors didn’t want to put him on meds yet and see if he can lower with diet and exercise. Oddly enough he doesn’t eat poorly so may just need to exercise more
I was going to recommend to him Iforce and products . Do you think he can benefit from these and lower his Cholesterol? or would you recommend another product like AI Sports and fish oil
Thanks in advance

2 questions. What are his triglycerides like, and what does "doesn't eat poorly" mean ? still has lots of breads, refined grains, etc fall into that category?

As mentioned before, Heart Help and Fish Oil is a good combo!

Get him to find out his triglycerides. A high triglyceride count is indicative of small dense LDL particles which are easily oxidised and form plaque inside arteries whereas low trigs and a high saturated fat diet (esp. coconut oil) is indicative of large LDL particles which are less likely to be oxidised and form the plaque.

Cycle Assists + niacin did wonders for my cholesterol.

He did do an epi run which ended mid/end of March and used Nolva for PCT.
Not sure how low fat but yes to fair amount of grains

Actually fish oil can raise cholesterol in higher dosages, it is mainly used for the treatment of high triglycerides. You will increase HDL with it but you will also get a minor rise in LDL as well. I would go with extended release Niacin at the 500mg range right before bed for a week or two then move up to 1000mg nightly right before bed. Just bear in mind if he is taking any sort of methylated anabolics then it can affect his liver enzymes but it is by far the best thing for lowering LDL and drastically raising HDL. It is actually a bit more tolerable than Niaspan which is Rx only but is a bit harsher on the liver in higher dosages than Niaspan is.

I would cycle assist and some kind of vitamin e blend

After 3.5 weeks on Heart Help and Iforce fish oil his numbers came back today @
doctor was impressed with the changes and told him keep doing what he is doing

Surprised they tested you only after 3.5 weeks, usually they wait at least 6 weeks but very glad you are seeing results. When is your next test?
