Cholesterol is an important substance created by the liver. Cholesterol is necessary for the production of bile, which is used during digestion, as well as maintaining healthy cell membrane within the body.
Special cholesterol molecules moving inside the body are called lipoproteins. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) bring cholesterol from the liver to the rest of the body. High-density lipoproteins (HDL) carry excess cholesterol back to the liver. Working synergistically, LDL and HDL are critical for a body to function normally.
Proper regulation of lipoprotein levels is important in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Ideally, LDL (bad cholesterol) levels should be under 130, and HDL (good cholesterol) levels should be above 60. While genetics play a large role in determining cholesterol levels, a diet which is high in certain fats (mainly saturated and trans fats) plays a significant factor.
Changing diet and getting enough exercise are the first steps toward maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. But for those who need extra support, AndorraLife has formulated CholesteRight. Backed by scientific research, the ingredients in AndorraLife CholesterRight have been tested and found to be effective in helping the body reach and maintain healthy cholesterol levels without medication.
A daily serving of two CholesteRight includes:
800mg of Phytosterols Concentrate
A source of plant sterols including beta sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol. This concentrate helps the body absorb excess cholesterol from the diet so that it can be excreted. 800mg is the effective dosage that can help the body fight off the bad Cholesterol and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Helps lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol, as well as prevents atherosclerosis (thickening of the arteries).
Superb at fighting free radicals, Vitamin C is one of the main contributors to LDL cholesterol oxidation. Vitamin C also helps reduce lipid peroxidation caused by cholesterol and unsaturated fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, which make up cell membranes. Vitamin C also helps maintain healthy blood vessels – another important factor in total cholesterol health.
In nature, there are 8 types of Vitamin E, four types of tocopherols, and four types of tocotrienols. They differ in cellular uptake and bioavailability. Tocotrienols are mainly transported in triglyceride-rich particles such as low-density lipoproteins (VLDLs) and chylomicrons. Tocopherols are mainly transported in low-density lipoproteins (LDLs).
Most importantly, tocotrienols have unique and additional health properties and have more potent antioxidant effects than common forms of tocopherols. It is also believed that tocotrienols may help reduce serum cholesterol, as well as reverse arterial blockage in Carotid Stenosis patients. These additional health benefits are not associated with the use of alpha-tocopherol by itself.
