Policosanol is a natural substance extracted from the waxy coating of sugarcane stems and leaves, which is clinically shown to lower both total cholesterol and LDL bad cholesterol, and increasing levels of the ‘good’ type of cholesterol (HDL cholesterol).
It works in similar ways to other cholesterol lowering medicines by reducing the production of cholesterol in the body and also improving clearance of LDL cholesterol from the blood. 6 million Australians currently have blood cholesterol of more than 5.5 mmol/L- which is considered high – policosanol is a natural alternative which helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol.
