Cholesterol can kill
More precisely, oxidized and partially oxidized cholesterol can kill. Studies have clearly demonstrated that these rancidified forms are some of the most potent initiators of cardiovascular disease (atherogens) and cancer (carcinogens) yet discovered.
Where the Danger Lies
If one eats any animal product (e.g. meat, cheese, butter), one will encounter oxidized cholesterol. Meat cannot be held in a butcher case, cooked, canned or processed in any way without oxidizing cholesterol. Milk cannot be pasteurized nor cheese allowed to age without oxidized cholesterol forming. Cholesterol is part of each muscle cell wall and is found in all animal fats. Leanness is not the issue. The highest cholesterol food listed in USDA Handbook No. 8 is turkey. It is just the nature of the beast that it contains more cholesterol in its cell membranes than most other animals.
Stop It Cold!
The plant sterols and policosanol in Cholesterol Blocker provide meaningful protection against damage from oxidized cholesterol. The sterols (beta-sitosterol, Stigmasterol, campesterol plus lesser sterols) and cosanols are fatty alcohols, which cannot be absorbed by humans except in very minute amounts. In the intestine, they will combine with dietary cholesterol and secreted forms in bile to create a new, crystalline matrix that cannot be absorbed. The compounds are then passed in feces.
Plant sterols may also compete for cholesterol's absorption sites along the intestinal wall, blocking absorption in that way too. Once the plant sterol wedges itself into the absorption site, it blocks absorption of cholesterol, but cannot be absorbed itself. The situation is similar to putting the wrong key in a keyhole. It may fit, but will not open the door. And the right key -- the cholesterol key -- can't find a way in.
The Added Advantage of Policosanol
In Policosanol, octacosanol is the predominant cosanol, meeting or exceeding a level of 60% with tetracosanol, hexacosanol and others comprising the rest of the material.
As a dietary supplement, policosanol can normalize cholesterol levels while also inhibiting oxidation of LDL cholesterol. It lowers LDL-cholesterol and raises protective HDL-cholesterol, comparing favorably with cholesterol-lowering drugs, but without the same risks as those drugs (e.g. liver dysfunction and muscle atrophy.) Policosanol lacks side effects with efficacy and safety proved in numerous clinical trials.
Policosanol brings enhanced cardioprotection to Cholesterol Blocker that reaches beyond the lowering of cholesterol: It helps stop the formation of arterial lesions, and is known to inhibit the formation of clots, working synergistically with aspirin, vitamin E, omega-3 fish oils and nattokinase enzyme in this respect.
Effective therapeutic dosages of policosanol range from 10 to 40 mg. per day, and those of plant sterols range form 300 to 3,000 mg per day. Cholesterol Blocker offers an appropriate ratio of 10mg:500 mg. policosanol:plant sterols.
Easy to Use
Cholesterol Blocker should be taken with a meal to permit plant sterols to mix with dietary cholesterol.
Tastes good: Cholesterol Blocker wafers are pleasant, vanilla flavored chewables.
Meets and beats cholesterol on a one-to-one basis. Each milligram of plant sterols ingested with cholesterol can block one milligram of cholesterol. Each Cholesterol Blocker wafer can halt the absorption of 500 mg. of cholesterol.
Helps shrink enlarged prostate and boost immunity
Plant sterols are now also known to not only block cholesterol absorption but also may help reduce benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH; enlarged prostate) so common among older men. Furthermore the tiny two to four percent of phytosterols that are absorbed may boost a flagging immune system.
