Phytosterols

Description

CHOLOX RX is clinically proven to support heart health by helping to reduce Total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol levels. Medical experts recognize that Total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol levels are controllable risk factors for heart disease. The FDA recognizes that the active ingredient in CHOLOX RX provides a safe, natural means of lowering Total and LDL Cholesterol, thereby reducing heart disease risk. This natural Cholesterol-lowering ingredient possesses absolutely no side effects. Clinical studies have consistently proven that including adequate amounts of CHOLOX RX's active ingredient in the diet helps to significantly lower Total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol. According to the FDA, consuming at least 400 mgs of plant sterols twice daily with meals for a total daily intake of at least 800 mgs, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Clinical studies have demonstrated a 10-20% reduction in LDL Cholesterol with consumption of 800 milligrams of phytosterols daily and consumption of 1,000 to 3,000 mgs daily yielding more substantial reductions. CHOLOX RX also contains therapeutic levels of Folic Acid, Vitamins B12 and B6 to help maintain healthy levels of Homocysteine, since research has shown that high levels of Homocysteine may play a role in the development of heart disease, blood clots and vascular spasm.

COMPOSITION

CHOLOX RX contains the following per 1 capsule and 8 capsule dosage respectively:

Proprietary Phytosterols
400 mg
3,200 mg
Vitamin B6
5 mg
40 mg
Vitamin B12

400 mcg
Folic Acid
125 mcg
1,000 mcg

Other Ingredients:  Gelatin Capsule, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, Vegetable Stearine and Silicon Dioxide.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Cholesterol Reduction. Plant sterols are structurally similar to both cholesterol and bile salts, yet unlike cholesterol and bile salts, phytosterols are poorly absorbed from the GI tract. This causes phytosterols to interfere with both endogenous and exogenous cholesterol and bile salt absorption by limiting solubility and competing for transport at the intestinal absorption sites. The result of these mechanisms is to divert significant amounts of cholesterol and bile salts out of the body thereby safely and naturally reducing Total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol levels.

Homocysteine Reduction. Normal protein metabolism results in the intermediate byproduct, homocysteine. Clinical studies have shown that elevated homocysteine levels are associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease risk. Vitamins B12, B6, and Folic Acid have been shown to effectively reduce elevated levels of homocysteine. Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid are involved in the re-methylation pathway of homocysteine back into methionine, while Vitamin B6 is required for the trans-sulfuration of homocysteine into the amino acids cysteine and taurine.

Indications and Usage

For individuals who seek to naturally lower Total Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol without side effects or health risks. CHOLOX RX can be used effectively in conjunction with or independent from cholesterol-lowering prescription medications. As with any cholesterol reduction regime, CHOLOX RX is most effective when part of a high-fiber diet containing reduced levels of cholesterol and saturated fat.

Precautions

Those with a potential B12 deficiency or Pernicious Anemia should not consume large amounts of folic acid without the supervision of a physician. High folic acid supplementation may mask the symptoms of B12 deficiency, potentially resulting in neurological damage.

Dosage and Administration

Consume 1 to 3 capsules with each meal or snack depending on the amount of food consumed. With small meals or snacks consume 1 capsule and with larger meals 2 or 3 capsules. Consume at least 2 capsules per day; however, there is no additional benefit from consuming more than 8 capsules daily. The largest reduction in Total and LDL Cholesterol is experienced as the dosage increases from 2 to 8 capsules daily with optimum reductions achieved with 4 to 6 capsules daily. CHOLOX RX is most effective when taken with food - 30 minutes before or no more than 60 minutes after eating.

How Supplied

Available in blister-packs of 90, 180 and 360 gelatin capsules containing beige powder.
