FFITOSTATIN® is a herbal remedy for normalizing cholesterol levels without side-effects common for synthetic statins.
Policosanol is active ingredient of FITOSTATIN®, a natural mixture of long chain alcohols extracted from sugar cane wax (Saccharum officinarum). It lowers the level of cholesterol and improves the functional state of the cardiovascular system in different ways:
- Policosanol promotes reduction of cholesterol synthesis in the liver
- Policosanol reduces the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) by stimulating its utilization in the liver
- Due to the antioxidant properties, policosanol increases the level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL)
- Policosanol prevents excessive platelets aggregation (stickiness) without affecting the blood coagulation parameters.
FITOSTATIN® is safe for people with heart or liver problems or those who suffers from diabetes, the elderly, and people with other risk factors.
