Cholester-Right is a 100% vegan Food supplement intended to nutritionally support the body in balancing healthy cholesterol levels. Cholester-Right contains some Foods which can be a better alternative than some fish oil supplements.
What about drugs?
Here is one view on cholesterol lowering statin drugs from a medical doctor: “The statin drugs’ claim to fame is that they lower cholesterol. But what is the true risk of high cholesterol? The Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT), one of the most definitive studies on risk factors for heart disease, showed that elevated cholesterol (along with high blood pressure and smoking) increased risk of heart attack and death from cardiovascular disease. Individuals with cholesterol levels of 275 or higher had a greater risk of death (1.3 percent) than those with levels of 150 or less (.3 percent). What this really means is that for every 100 people in each group, one more person in the high-cholesterol group would die from heart disease than the low-cholesterol group…To save ten people in the high-cholesterol group compared to the low cholesterol group, you would have to treat 1,000 people with drugs with known toxic side effects that increase death from other causes. Is this good medicine? No, it’s insanity…These drugs may reduce numbers of death from heart attack and other cardiovascular events, but the risk of death from other causes goes up, canceling out any survival benefit… Statins have also been linked to increased risk of kidney disease, immune system suppression, memory loss, and cancer ”.
Another medical doctor has written, “Cholesterol is one type of body fat. The enzyme in the liver that makes sugar into cholesterol turns up its activity when insulin levels rise. Insulin levels rise following carbohydrate meals or excess mental stress (among other promoters)…Statin drugs work, in part, because they poison this liver enzyme’s ability to listen to the insulin message. The trouble with poisons concerns their inevitable side effect and toxicities”.
Cholester-Right is not a drug, it is a 100% vegan supplement containing the following Foods:
Apple Pectin Malus domestica, “Numerous studies have demonstrated that pectin has favorable effects on lipids”.
