Description

Policosanol is a mixture of alcohols isolated and refined from sugar cane. While the main ingredient in Policosanol is octacosanol, Policosanol is actually a mixture of many (hence the prefix “poli”) alcohols, including hexacosanol, triacontanol and others. As a dietary supplement, Policosanol has been associated with lower levels of LDL or “bad” cholesterol. The level of LDL in a person’s blood is linked to atherosclerosis (narrowing of the blood vessels due to build up of lipids, sometimes known as “hardening of the arteries”). Having a high level of LDL cholesterol puts a person at risk of having coronary heart disease. Policosanol has also been shown to increase levels of high-density lipoprotein or HDL, the “good” cholesterol. HDL actually helps carry cholesterol away from the arteries to the liver, where it is processed and excreted from the body. A relatively high proportion of HDL in your total cholesterol level may be beneficial in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.
