Suggested Usage: Take 3 tablets daily, preferably one with each meal. CholesTame is not to be taken by individuals using cholesterol-lowering medication, unless under the supervision of a physician.

CholesTame is a comprehensive combination of nutrients that affect cholesterol metabolism.

 

Policosanols are a family of aliphatic alcohols found in rice bran wax and they affect cholesterol biosynthesis in the liver. Plant Sterols are known to interfere with the absorption of dietary cholesterol by blocking cholesterol receptor sites. CholesTame supplies 30 mg of Co-Q10 per serving because Policosanols may reduce the body’s biosynthesis of Coenzyme Q10. Artichoke leaf extract is rich in cynarines which supports the actions of policosanols. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), Grape Seed and Taurine provide antioxidant protection against free radicals, particularly against oxidation of cholesterol, and supports the metabolism of lipoproteins. ALA also supports glucose metabolism by promoting glucose uptake into cells. Guggul is an Ayurvedic extract that improves HDLs. Pantethine is involved in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism by supporting the synthesis of Coenzyme A. Lutein is an effective carotenoid antioxidant that is important for protecting HDLs.

As part of a regimen that includes a diet low in saturated fat and high in fiber and vegetables plus physical exercise, CholesTame’s formula promotes healthy cholesterol metabolism and healthy HDL levels.
