Is policosanol effective for lowering cholesterol?
Policosanol: Explanation and Benefits
Policosanol is a dietary supplement that is slowly becoming popular for its ability to lower cholesterol. It is most commonly derived from sugar cane wax and can include a variety of different fat-soluble compounds, like Octacosanol, which work together to provide synergistic benefits.
How it Works
The primary compounds found in policosanol are Octacosanol (60-70%), Triacontanol (10-15%), Hexacosanol (5-10%), and dotriacontanol (3-8%). How do these compounds work?
They decrease cholesterol formation in the liver and increases the breakdown of LDL (bad) cholesterol. The majority of studies have shown positive effects and benefits but have many sceptics doubting the results due to the limited testing that has all been done in Cuba.
Regardless of the lack of clinical studies, numerous testimonials claim policosanol has consistently helped with cholesterol management.
