Cholest-X provides support for healthy triglyceride and lipid metabolism. It is composed of a powerful combination of nutrients which work synergistically in improving the blood lipid profile.

  • Red Yeast Rice has been used as a spice for centuries in Asian countries, but it has been found to be beneficial in improving the blood lipid profile in patients with elevated levels.
  • Niacin has been shown to improve HDL (good cholesterol) levels in the blood.
  • Emblica Officinalis contains a diverse blend of phenolic compounds that have been clinically shown to safely help maintain healthy levels of all three key blood lipids—LDL, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and triglycerides—as well as markers of inflammation such as C-reactive protein. Studies have also shown that this plant extract helps to induce rapid and significant improvement in endothelial function.
  • Bergamonte TM was shown in published clinical studies to reduce LDL, Tryglicerides, Cholesterol and Blood glucose while increasing HDL cholesterol.
  • Pantethine is the activated form of Vitamin B6. It is documented to aid in healthy lipid metabolism.
  • Plant Sterols have been shown in numerous studies to have the ability to lower cholesterol levels.

Standard Dosage: Take four capsules daily in divided doses with meals.
