Cholesterol-lowering Food Products

I lowered my own cholesterol rather dramatically with a food based supplement called BiosLife2 which I believe works in a similar manner.

Bios is basically a soluble fiber supplement ( with a chromium supplement and antioxidants) which comes as a powder which you mix with water and drink twice daily about 10-20 minutes before a meal. These servings add 9 gm of mostly soluble fiber to your diet.  The mechanism of fiber’s cholesterol lowering activity is very well documented– basically it sequesters bile pigments in the bowel so they are excreted rather than being re-absorbed for reuse.  This causes the liver to use serum cholesterol to manufacture more bile ( an over simplified explanation).  Anyway, cholesterol ( the bad kind) does go down. As an added attraction, this fiber drink swells a bit in your stomach giving you a slightly full feeling– you tend to eat less, making it easier to lose weight.

You can get more info on this product at Rexall.com. This is definitely worth a look-see if you are interested in a non-drug way to lower your cholesterol.

My wife has taken several Benecol produxts, spread, bars, dressing and has had very good success. She takes Lipitor also. Her total choleterol and trglycerides has gone down further, and her HDL has risen.
