Introducing Cholestapro, a safe and effective all-natural solution for cholesterol management. Cholestapro is not a drug. Cholestapro is an all-natural plant sterol complex, specifically formulated to provide you a safe and effective cholesterol management solution.
Studies show, the ingredients in Cholestapro, when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program, are clinically proven to reduce Total and LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of Heart Disease. The ingredients in Cholestapro are so effective, they are FDA approved for cholesterol reduction.
Discover why tens of thousands of individuals have turned to Cholestapro to dramatically lower their total and LDL cholesterol levels, naturally.
Cholestapro is not a synthetic drug. Cholestapro is an all natural plant sterol complex specially formulated based upon decades of clinical studies and research to support good cardiovascular health. The ingredients in Cholestapro are FDA approved and clinically proven to reduce Total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of Heart Disease. Since Total and LDL cholesterol levels are directly related to the risk of Heart Disease, Cholestapro provides an effective and safe cholesterol reduction method. Cholestapro is non-toxic with absolutely no side effects. Cholestapro provides you a safe and easy way to reduce your cholesterol levels, naturally.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, consuming at least 400mg per serving of the active ingredient in Cholestapro twice daily with meals for a daily total intake of 800mg, as part of a diet low in saturated fat, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Two servings of Cholestapro daily provide you with a total of 800mg of plant sterols and stanols. Coupled with diet and exercise, Cholestapro is your perfect partner for a healthy heart.
Cholestapro is also safe to take with other prescription medications and medications for cholesterol reduction such as statins, which reduce cholesterol by inhibiting cholesterol synthesis. Plant sterol and statins work together towards cholesterol reduction via two different, but compatible mechanisms.
Always speak to your physician first before adding any new supplement to your daily regimen or before starting any new cholesterol management program.
How Cholestapro Works?
The process is really quite simple. The plant sterols and stanols found in Cholestapro inhibit the intestinal absorption of cholesterol. Because plant sterols are structurally similar to cholesterol they compete with the cholesterol we ingest for absorption through the small intestine. The more plant sterols present in the intestine after a meal, the less cholesterol absorption will occur.
Interestingly, the plant sterols we consume are not absorbed to any appreciable extent. By consuming plant sterols you not only inhibit the uptake of cholesterol by the body, but you also "flush" the plant sterols through your system without absorbing them. The overall effect is an average LDL (bad) cholesterol reduction of %10-25 with no observed side effects. Since high levels of cholesterol and coronary heart disease are directly related, by reducing your cholesterol levels you are also reducing your risk of heart disease.
How do I take Cholestapro?
For natural cholesterol reduction, take 1 or 2 tablets of Cholestapro with each meal.
How quickly should I see results while taking Cholestapro?
Studies done on the ingredients in Cholestapro, along with a moderate diet and exercise program, show noticeable results in Total and LDL cholesterol levels in 8-12 weeks. We recommend taking Cholestapro every day and incorporating it into your daily supplement regimen.
Are plant sterols safe?
Yes. Scores of human studies done with phytosterols have shown no adverse effects. Read More.
What are plant sterols?
All plants include some amount of a substance known as plant sterols that naturally reduce cholesterol. However it is difficult to consume enough of these foods on a daily basis to derive enough plant sterols to create a cholesterol-lowering effect. The plant sterols in Cholestapro are a concentrated extract of this substance that comes from plants such as soybeans or corn.
How do plant sterols lower cholesterol levels in my blood?
From your body's point of view, plant sterols looks a lot like cholesterol. As you digest a meal, plant sterols compete with the cholesterol, so you absorb less of the cholesterol. The overall effect in clinical studies has been an average "bad" (LDL) cholesterol decline of 8 - 24% with no known adverse side effects.
Do plant sterols work best for people with moderately elevated cholesterol or do they offer benefits for people with high cholesterol as well?
The higher an individual's cholesterol, the greater the effect of plant sterols. Although, those with normal cholesterol can also benefit from plant sterols.
How long must plant sterols be consumed before cholesterol levels change?
Once plant sterols have been incorporated into the daily diet, changes in blood cholesterol levels can usually be detected in 2-3 weeks.
Do any government or professional health associations recommend consuming plant sterols?
In the US, the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health suggests the use of plant sterols in conjunction with other lifestyle changes to enhance LDL cholesterol reduction achieved through dietary means.
Where can I get more information on plant sterols?
- National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP)
- American Heart Association
- Food and Drug Administration
- National Heart Lung and Blood Institute
Have any clinical trials been done with plant sterols?
Phytosterols have been clinically evaluated in many different populations, under different circumstances over the past fifty years, and have consistently demonstrated the ability to reduce blood cholesterol in humans. The scientific substantiation supporting the health benefits of phytosterols has been well established and public health authorities, such as the US National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), are beginning to include phytosterols as part of their dietary recommendations (NCEP, 2001).
Will Cholestapro interfere with my special diet?
No, Cholestapro has no nutritive, caloric or fat values and is not metabolized by the body. Therefore it will have no effect on a special diet; whether it is low fat, weight reduction, cholesterol reducing, vegetarian, wheat/gluten-free or diabetic.
Are there any special restrictions with products containing plant phytosterols?
Yes. Any product containing phytosterols is not appropriate for pregnant/lactating women or children younger than 13 years of age. If in doubt, please consult your doctor/physician or health care specialist. We recommend that you not exceed 1.8 grams total daily intake of phytosterol-containing products including Cholestapro. Also, the specific rules and regulations governing the use and sale of phytosterols are different for each country. If you are unsure, please check with your health care professional or contact us for more information.
Can I use Cholestapro if I am taking prescription medication?
While we have not conducted any studies of the effect(s), if any, of Cholestapro interactions with prescription drugs, Cholestapro is a combination of plant sterols and stanols which have been found to have no known interactions with drugs including hormone drugs, contraceptives and antibiotics. If you are taking any prescription medications (including but not limited to: cholesterol lowering drugs such as statins, Bile acid sequestrants, nicotinic acid derivatives, fibrates) we strongly recommend you consult a doctor/physician or health care specialist.
Will taking Cholestapro be sufficient to reduce my cholesterol levels to safe levels?
The ingredients in Cholestapro have been clinically proven to significantly reduce cholesterol levels. However individual results will vary and are influenced by a person's age, sex, body weight and family history but also lifestyle choices such as diet, physical activity/exercise habits and smoking. To give the patient the most chance of benefit, we strongly recommend that any person taking Cholestapro or phytosterols seek professional counsel on healthy lifestyle choices, such as a reduced fat diet, exercise and no smoking. Patients may have cholesterol levels (>240mg/dL), which exceed the range treatable by phytosterols and call for more potent therapies such as prescription anti-dyslipidemic drugs. In EVERY case, whether you believe you have high cholesterol or not, it is recommended that qualified medical advice be obtained and a cholesterol test be undertaken to determine the most appropriate form of treatment for you.
