Optimum production of cholesterol and other fat molecules in the liver and maintaining normal blood lipid levels are important for a healthy heart, healthy blood vessels and general wellbeing. Cholesterol is critical for building cellular membranes as well as being a building block of hormones and other vital molecules. Triglycerides are a component of many biological structures and provide essential bio-energy.
Many factors, including diet, affect blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, however, the availability of specific vitamins, minerals and micronutrients play a vital role in keeping cholesterol blood levels within a healthy range.
The Dr. Rath Healthy Cholesterol Synergy Formula is built on our pioneering research, which identified a ‘team’ of specific micronutrients providing optimum support for cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism and maintaining healthy blood levels of these important biological molecules that are already within a normal range.*
Dr. Rath Healthy Cholesterol Synergy Formula has been developed from the Metavicor formula.
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, Niacin, Beta Sitosterol, Apple Pectins, Carnitine and other essential nutrients.
Vitamin C: This important vitamin is not produced in the human body, although it is essential for collagen production – the main component of our blood vessels. It promotes strong and elastic artery walls. In addition, vitamin C can affect cholesterol production in the liver by regulating activity of a key enzyme in cholesterol synthesis, HMG Co-A reductase.
Vitamin B6, B12, Folic acid: These nutrients work together as a biological team in regulating biochemical reactions involved in methionine metabolism and maintaining healthy homocysteine levels.
Niacin (Vitamin B3): Niacin supports fatty acid metabolism. It has been shown to be effective in maintaining healthy LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels that are already within a normal range, as well as supporting HDL cholesterol.
Beta-Sitosterol: This is a plant sterol closely resembling cholesterol. This nutrient helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within a normal range by reducing the absorption of dietary cholesterol from the digestive system and supporting an increased flow of bile juices, which facilitates the excretion of unabsorbed cholesterol molecules in the digestive tract.
Apple pectins: A soluble dietary source of fiber, apple pectins can bind with LDL cholesterol and accelerate cholesterol excretion, maintaining cholesterol levels that are already normal.
