This month we focus on Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a waxy substance found naturally in the blood. Predominantly produced in the liver, but also found in foods such as red meat, high fat cheese, butter and eggs, Cholesterol is essential for maintaining good health and only becomes a problem when the level in your blood is too high.
Raised cholesterol is a common problem and a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease, however a visit to your GP and following a healthy diet and lifestyle can help to lower cholesterol levels and will significantly reduce the risk.
StatiQinon helps to maintain a natural cholesterol balance using a combination of three important ingredients.
Coenzyme Q10 is found in the mitochondria (power house) of every cell and is responsible for the production of energy. Tissues with a high energy requirement such as the heart, muscles and liver contain more mitochondria within their cells.
Red yeast rice is a dietary staple in some Asian countries. Red yeast rice has 14 active compounds called monacolins, which inhibits the synthesis of cholesterol.
ALA stands for “alpha-linolenic acid”, an essential fatty acid found in plants. The body does not produce ALA, though we can consume this from the diet. ALA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol concentrations.
