A Simple Step to Support Your Healthy Cholesterol!

While your good “HDL” cholesterol helps pick up and remove excess cholesterol in your body, too much “LDL” may overwhelm it. Left unchecked, LDL leaves a sticky, waxy build up in your cardiovascular system that can cause serious health issues.

Are you taking steps to keep your cholesterol levels in healthful balance?

Make your diet work for you! Processed foods, fried foods, sweets, and animal products can all increase your risk of high LDL cholesterol. By reducing your intake of these foods and increasing your intake of omega-3 rich foods like flax or chia; and fiber-rich foods like whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables; you can naturally help prevent excess cholesterol accumulation.

Get your cholesterol moving! Exercise has been shown to increase healthy HDL-type cholesterol, which in turn, promotes elimination of bad LDL cholesterol in your body. The American Heart Association recommends working toward a goal of at least 30 minutes aerobic exercise every day. Biking, swimming, dancing, elliptical and step machines are all great examples of heart-healthy aerobic exercises, but any activity you enjoy that also gets your heart pumping is excellent! (Rule of thumb: Aerobic exercise should not be so intense that you are unable to hold a conversation but should be intense enough that it is difficult to sing.)

Toss the cigarettes! Not only does cigarette smoking make getting heart-healthy, HDL-promoting exercise more difficult; it may actually decrease your HDL levels and is known to damage blood vessel walls (which makes them more prone to the bad LDL-type cholesterol deposits). If you’ve been looking for a reason to quit, here’s yet another one for you!

Take Cholestasys daily! You're eating right. You're exercising, and if you used to be a smoker, you're not anymore. Unfortunately, age and genetic predisposition may mean you're still at risk! So what else can you do to help keep you veins, vessels, and cholesterol healthy?

Cholestasys combines 7 clinically-researched ingredients to make protecting your healthy cholesterol easier than ever. Just one capsule with each meal delivers naturally powerful cholesterol support you can feel great about every day!*

Red Yeast Rice

red yeast rice

A long-honored staple of traditional Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is a type of rice which is fermented with the bright reddish mold called “monascus purpureus.” Historically, red yeast rice was believed to “invigorate the body, aid in digestion, and revitalize the blood.” Now, experts recognize that the mold which gives red yeast rice its unique color also contains some amount of a chemical which is synthesized and used in prescription statin drugs today! While more research is needed, studies of red yeast rice’s potential benefits for support of healthy cholesterol and serum lipids within normal ranges are very promising.*

Cholestasys provides 600mg of Red Yeast Rice daily.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition:
"Cholesterol-lowering effects of proprietary Chinese red-yeast-rice dietary supplement."

83 subjects with hyperlipidemia (not on lipid-lowering drugs) 2.4 grams red yeast rice daily OR placebo + both groups on a specialized diet (30% calories from fat, less than 10% from saturated fat, and less than 300mg cholesterol) 12 weeks total Compared with placebo, the red yeast rice group had a significant decrease in total cholesterol, total triacylglycerides, and LDL cholesterol.

Annals of Internal Medicine:
"Red Yeast Rice for Dyslipidemia in Statin-Intolerant Patients: A Randomized Trial"

62 subjects with dyslipidemia + history of discontinuation of statin therapy due to myalgias 1800mg red yeast rice daily OR placebo + both groups in a 12 week therapeutic lifestyle change program 24 weeks total Both groups showed a decrease in LDL cholesterol at weeks 12 and 24. However, the red yeast rice group had greater decreases. Decrease at week 12 was .83 mmol/L greater, and at week 24 was .51 mmol/L greater. The red yeast rice group also had greater decreases in total cholesterol.

Artichoke Leaf Extract


Native to North Africa, and with natural variants in the Mediterranean, artichokes have been cultivated in gardens, enjoyed as a foodstuff, and used medicinally as a digestive aid and bile stimulant since ancient times. Today, researchers understand that the unique health value of the artichoke is due to its natural “cynarine” content. Artichoke has now been approved by Germany’s “Commission E” for treatment of dyspeptic issues, and a synthesized version of cynarine is used in a pharmaceutical liver treatment. While more research is needed in this area, there are very promising studies on artichoke’s support of healthy bile production which in turn, may help support the body’s healthy natural cholesterol removal processes, defenses against excess cholesterol synthesis, regulation of HMG-Coa reductase enzymes, and LDL oxidation! *

Cholestasys provides 100mg of Artichoke Leaf Extract daily.

"Artichoke lead extract (Cynara scolymus) reduces plasma cholesterol in otherwise healthy hypercholesterolemic adults: a randomized, double blind placebo controlled trial"

131 subjects with mild to moderately hypercholesterolemia 1280mg artichoke leaf extract daily or placebo 12 weeks Total cholesterol decreases of 0.06 mmol/L (-4.2%) in the artichoke group and an increase of 0.12 mmol/L (+1.9%) of in the placebo group.

"Efficacy of Artichoke Dry Extract in Patients with Hyperlipoproteinemia"

143 subjects with mild hypercholesterolemia 1800mg artichoke leaf extract daily or placebo 6 weeks The artichoke group reduced total cholesterol by 1.43 mmol/L (-18.5%) and LDL cholesterol by -22.9% while the placebo group reduced total cholesterol by just 0.66 mmol/L (-8.6%) and LDL cholesterol by just -6.3%.



Found most abundantly in broccoli, the National Academy of Medicine recommends chromium as an essential nutrient for support of insulin/ blood sugar regulation (critical to metabolism and storage of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins). In fact, in Civil War times, chromium-rich foods (specifically brewer’s yeast) were sometimes used as treatment for blood sugar imbalance. Today, United States health guidelines recommend a daily value of at least 35 μg of chromium; and encouraging preliminary studies indicate chromium may help support healthy resistance to high total cholesterol and promote healthy HDL-to-LDL ratios.*

Cholestasys provides 200mcg/μg of Chromium polynicotinate daily. (The polynicotinate form of chromium was selected for its superior bioavailability!)

Western Journal of Medicine:
"The effect of chromium picolinate on serum cholesterol and apolipoprotein fractions in human subjects"

28 subjects 200mcg chromium picolinate or placebo 2 weeks total The chromium group saw a 0.5 mmol/L (-7%) decrease in total cholesterol, a 0.6 mmol/L (-12%) decrease LDL-type cholesterol, and a 0.1 mmol/L increase in HDL-type cholesterol. Meanwhile, the placebo group had a 0.1 mmol/L increase in total cholesterol and LDL-type cholesterol, and no change in HDL.

Nutrition Research:
"Lipid-lowering of dietary chromium (III) –Nicotinic acid complex in male athletes"

34 subjects (college-aged male bodybuilders) 200mcg chromium nicotinate, 800mcg chromium nicotinate, or placebo + training controlled for all groups 8 weeks total The triglyceride-to-HDL ratio of the 200mcg chromium group decreased 0.25 md/dl, while the 800mcg chromium group saw a 0.16 md/dl decrease, and the placebo group saw a 0.71 md/dl increase.



Extracted from plant waxes (most often sugar cane), policosanols are long chain alcohols derived from fatty acids which are rich in a chemical called “octaconsanol.” Though currently, the most common use of policosanols is for leg pain due to poor circulation, new studies investigating a wider span of potential benefits are very encouraging. Research indicates policosanols may help support healthy defense against excess cholesterol synthesis in the liver; protection against peroxidation of lipids; aid in healthy blood flow; and support maintenance of beneficial HDL-type cholesterol with a normal range.*

Cholestasys provides 20mg of sugar-cane-derived Policosanol daily.

American Diabetes Association:
"Treatment of Hypercholesterolemia in NIDDM With Policosanol"

29 subjects with NIDDM and hypercholesterolemia, with controlled glycemie 5mg policosanol twice daily or placebo 12 weeks total Compared with baseline and placebo, the policosanol group had a total cholesterol decrease of -17.5% and an LDL decrease of -21.8%.

Current Therapeutic Research, Clinical, and Experimental:
"Effects of policosanol on borderline to mildly elevated serum total cholesterol levels: a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, comparative study"

100 subjects with borderline or mild hypercholesterolemia 5mg policosanol daily or placebo + cholesterol-lowering diet 14 weeks total After 8 weeks, the policosanol group had a -19.9% decrease in LDL. 84% of the policosanol group achieved an LDL decrease of -15%(or more) versus only 4% of the placebo group that achieved this.
Compared with baseline and placebo, the policosanol group also saw greater increases in HDL – 1.05 mmol/L to 1.16 mmol/L (+10.5%).

Guggul Lipids

guggul lipids

Commiphora wightii, also known as the Mukul myrrh tree, produces the fragrant medicinal resin known as “guggul” (from the Sanskrit guggulu meaning “to protect against diseases”) – a treatment with nearly 3,000 years of use in Unani and Ayurvedic medicine traditions. Guggul resin naturally contains a chemical called “guggulsterone” which is known to counteracts the bile acid receptor “farnesoid X/ FXR”(involved in cholesterol production) as well as acting as a powerful antioxidant, helping support natural defenses against “lipid peroxidation” (the creation of free radicals which are harmful to cells).*

Cholestasys provides 200mg of Guggul Lipid Powder daily.

The Indian Journal of Medical Research:
"Effect of Commiphora mukul (gum guggulu) in patients of hyperlipidemia with special reference to HDL-cholesterol"

40 subjects with a history of coronary heart disease and hypercholesterolemia 4.5g guggul daily or placebo 4 months total Compared with the placebo group, at week eight the guggul group’s LDL cholesterol decreased 59mg/L and their HDL cholesterol increased by 4.3mg/dL. At week 16, their total cholesterol also decreased an average of 72mg/mL.

Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy:
"Hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects of Commiphora mukul as an adjunct to dietary therapy in patients with hypercholesterolemia"

61 subjects with hypercholesterolemia 50mg guggul lipid twice daily or placebo + both groups on fruit-and-vegetable-enriched prudent diet 6 months total The guggul group had a total cholesterol decrease of -11.7% and an LDL decrease of -12.5%. They also had a -11.1% decrease in the ratio of total cholesterol vs HDL and a -33.3% decrease in lipid peroxides (which indicate oxidative stress). Comparatively, levels were not statistically changed in the placebo group.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is very common type of “helper molecule” found in the mitochondria of both animals and bacteria. In humans, it is used by the body in a process that generates 95% of our energy (making it a very beneficial nutrient!) Unfortunately, studies have found the use of statin drugs may reduce coenzyme Q10 levels up to 40%, leading to the use of coenzyme Q10 supplements as a means of combatting statin-induced muscle breakdown. In addition to coenzyme Q10’s energy benefits, it acts as an antioxidant which may help support natural defenses against nervous system and cardiovascular system damage.*

Cholestasys provides 20mg of Coenzyme Q10 daily.

Molecular Aspects of Medicine:
"Coenzyme Q10 in essential hypertension"

26 subjects with essential arterial hypertension 50mg coenzyme Q10 twice daily 10 weeks total Total cholesterol decreased an average of 9.6 mg/dl, while HDL cholesterol increased by 2.0mg/dl.

Lipids in Health and Disease:
"The effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation on lipid profiles among patients with coronary artery disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials” [META-ANALYSIS]

267 subjects in intervention groups + 259 in placebo group (totaled from eight trials) - - A meta-analysis of 8 studies found that subjects with CAD had significant decreases in total cholesterol and increases in HDL cholesterol levels.



Also known as “plant sterols,” the term “phytosterol” refers to a group of cholesterol-resembling chemicals which are naturally-occurring in plants. These compounds may help support a healthy cholesterol balance by blocking cholesterol as it competes with cholesterol absorption in the gut. Cholestasys contains three phytosterol varieties for superior, synergistic support: beta sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol.*

Cholestasys provides a 500mg blend of three unique Phytosterols daily.

European Journal of Clinical Nutrition:
"Plant sterol-enriched margarines and reduction of plasma total- and LDL-cholesterol concentrations in normocholesterolemic and mildly hypercholesterolemic subjects"

95 subjects with healthy or mildly high cholesterol 1.5-3.3g sterol dose (in margarine enriched with sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol) or non-enriched placebo margarine 3.5 weeks total Compared with the placebo group, the phytosterol group had total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol reduced by 8-13%.

The Journal of Nutrition:
"Effect of Plant Sterol Esters on the Absorption of Dietary Cholesterol"

Rats Plant sterol supplement (beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol) at double the amount of dietary fat cosnumed (containing 1% cholesterol) - 30% reduction in cholesterol absorption at standard supplement amount (x2 dietary fat amount)
