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.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.
Not really. I have used Mega brand before and it worked will for me.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.
Its really the ratio that is important. I believe you want at least a 3.5:1.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.
