What are bad and good cholesterols?
In our bloodstream, cholesterol exists in two forms. One is “bad” (LDL cholesterol), in the sense that it can lead to the formation of plaque in our arteries, especially when it becomes oxidised by free radicals. The other is “good” (HDL cholesterol), in the sense that it does not do this but is instead transported to the liver for metabolism or excretion.
What is the effect of Policosanol on cholesterol?
About 1 third of our cholesterol comes from our diet. 2 thirds of cholesterol is produced by our own body through conversion of AcetylCoA.
5-10 mg per day, taken daily in the evening or as directed by your doctor.
