Policosanol is a unique natural product derived from sugar cane wax and beeswax: It has proved effective at reducing cholesterol levels and for many individuals may be a reasonable natural alternative to the commonly prescribed “statin-type” cholesterol-lowering drugs.
Most research using the sugarcane-derived form of policosanol has been conducted in Cuba, in both animals and humans. The studies showed that policosanol not only reduced cholesterol levels, but also had positive effects on other cardiac risk factors, through actions such as reducing platelet “clumping” and inhibiting the development of atherosclerosis. A 2002 analysis in the American Heart Journal reviewed more than 60 clinical trials of sugar cane-derived policosanol that involved more than 3000 patients. The authors concluded that policosanol is “a very promising phytochemical alternative to classic lipid-lowering agents such as statins.”
Policosanol is a supplement that can normalize cholesterol as well or better than drugs, without side effects. Efficacy and safety have been proven in numerous clinical trials, and it has been used by millions of people in other countries. Policosanol can lower LDL cholesterol as much as 20% and raise protective HDL cholesterol by 10%. This compares favorably with cholesterol-lowering drugs which have the drawback of side effects such as liver dysfunction and muscle atrophy. Policosanol is free of these side effects.
NOTE FROM DR. GREENE:
This supplement has been shown in many medical studies to be as good as and in many cases better than the Statin drugs in improving your cholesterol profile. And since it costs only $30 per month instead of $100 or more per month for the prescription Statin drugs, it follows that it sure makes pretty good sense to try PCOH-PLUS for 2 months and compare your blood chemistries with the Statin drugs your physician prescribed. AND, you will also notice on your blood work that your Liver Enzymes will NOT be elevated if you take Policosanol instead of the Statins.
