Policosanol is a natural substance taken from the waxy coating of sugar cane leaves and stems. It has been clinically shown to decrease both total cholesterol and LDL bad cholesterol, and increase levels of the HDL or ‘good’ type of cholesterol.
It works similarly to other cholesterol lowering drugs through curtailing the body’s production of cholesterol and increasing clearance of LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. Currently, six million Australians have high blood cholesterol in excess of 5.5 mmol/L. Policosanol is a natural alternative to synthetic drugs which helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
