Chew your way to a healthier heart! Cholesterol Blocker delivers more than 500 mg. of phytosterols per chewable, vanilla flavored tablet. Phytosterols are fatty alcohols found in plants that can block the absorption of dietary cholesterol when taken with food. One milligram of phytosterols can block absorption of one milligram of cholesterol, which means Cholesterol Blocker can block more than 500 mg. of cholesterol. Supports healthy cholesterol levels
Where the Problem Lies
If one eats any animal product (e.g. meat, cheese, butter), one will encounter oxidized cholesterol. Meat cannot be held in a butcher case, cooked, canned or processed in any way without oxidizing cholesterol. Milk cannot be pasteurized nor cheese allowed to age without forming oxidized cholesterol. Cholesterol is part of each muscle cell wall and is found in all animal fats. Leanness is not the issue. The highest cholesterol food listed in USDA Handbooks is turkey. It is just the nature of the beast that it contains more cholesterol in its cell membranes than most other animals.
Stop It Cold!
Ingredients in Cholesterol blocker inhibit the absorption of dietary cholesterol form the gastrointestinal tract.
Easy to Use
Cholesterol Blocker should be taken with a meal to permit plant sterols to mix with dietary cholesterol.
Cholesterol Blocker tablets are pleasant, vanilla flavored chewables.
Meets and beats cholesterol on a one-to-one basis.
Each milligram of plant sterols ingested with cholesterol can block one milligram of cholesterol. Each Cholesterol Blocker wafer can halt the absorption of 500 mg. of cholesterol.
One or two wafers at each meal, depending on what is eaten, could stop the absorption of most of the cholesterol passing through the intestines each day.
Cholesterol Blocker works synergistically with aspirin, Vitamin E, omega-3 fish oils and fibrinolytic enzymes such as nattokinase enzyme to support cardiovascular health. Effective dosages of policosanol range from 10 to 40 mg. per day, and those of plant sterols range from 300 to 3,000 mg per day according to human clinical trials conducted from 1955 forward. Cholesterol Blocker offers an appropriate ratio of 10mg:500 mg. policosanol:plant sterols.
Federal FDA regulations maintain that, “Foods containing at least 0.65 grams [650 mg.] per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.” A serving of Cholesterol Blocker supplies 500 grams of plant sterols esters. One wafer at each of three daily meals would exceed minimum FDA guidelines.
The plant sterols and policosanol in Cholesterol Blocker provide meaningful protection against oxidized cholesterol. The sterols (beta-sitosterol, Stigmasterol, campesterol plus lesser sterols) and "cosanols" are fatty alcohols, which cannot be absorbed by humans except in very minute amounts. In the intestine, they will combine with dietary cholesterol and secreted cholesterol in bile salts to create a new, crystalline matrix that cannot be absorbed. The compounds are then passed in feces.*
Plant sterols may also compete for cholesterol's absorption sites along the intestinal wall, blocking absorption in that way too. Once the plant sterol wedges itself into the absorption site, it blocks absorption of cholesterol, but cannot be absorbed itself. The situation is similar to putting the wrong key in a keyhole. It may fit, but will not open the door. And the right key -- the cholesterol key -- can't find a way in.
50+ years of research indicate that plant sterols in this product block absorption of cholesterol from the intestines on a milligram-to-milligram basis when ingested along with cholesterol containing food, and may also support healthy prostate and immune function.*
As a food supplement, take one (1) tablet DURING a meal containing cholesterol.
Each tablet may block absorption of 500 mg. of cholesterol.
The Added Advantage of Policosanol
In Policosanol, octacosanol is the predominant "cosanol," meeting or exceeding a level of 60% with tetracosanol, hexacosanol and others comprising the rest of the material.
As a dietary supplement, policosanol can help support normal cholesterol levels while also inhibiting oxidation of LDL cholesterol.* In clinical trials, It lowered LDL-cholesterol and raised protective HDL-cholesterol.* Policosanol lacks side effects while efficacy and safety has been proved in numerous clinical trials.
