Vasacor is an all-natural supplement scientifically developed to promote lower LDL cholesterol levels, and improve HDL levels. Vasacor is safer, less expensive, and more convenient than prescription medications, without any side effects. The key active ingredients in Vasacor have been the subjects of numerous studies quantifying their effects on cholesterol. These studies have concluded that the ingredients found in Vasacor are an effective tool in reducing overall cholesterol when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
Vasacor’s proprietary formulation of plant phytosterol esters, Omega-3 fish oils, niacin, policosanol and other proven ingredients may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, while promoting healthy cholesterol levels. For best results, Vasacor should be used in conjunction with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
How Vasacor Works
Vasacor’s proprietary blend has been scientifically developed and thoroughly studied for its effects on cholesterol levels. Each one of Vasacor’s key ingredients plays an integral role in cholesterol management.
Policosanol has been scientifically proven to be a very beneficial dietary supplement. The main benefit of Policosanol is that it appears to work by blocking the body's synthesis of cholesterol. In multiple randomized, double blind studies, Policosanol reduced LDL cholesterol between 21.1% and 31.8% during an eight week period.
In addition to its cholesterol reducing benefits, the Policosanol found in Vasacor also appears to inhibit the oxidation of LDL. Oxidized LDL creates a chronic inflammatory response that promotes the destruction of blood vessels.
Niacin (a water soluble B vitamin), has been proven in studies to improve the lipoprotein profile. Niacin is effective at reducing total cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels, while at the same time raising HDL levels.
In its simplest form, the Niacin found in Vasacor lowers cholesterol and triglycerides by blocking excess production by the liver. While there are many types of Niacin available, the Niacin found in Vasacor, Inositol Hexaniacinate, is the type least likely to cause adverse side effects. This form provides maximum benefit without the annoying flushing or itching associated with other forms of Niacin.
Fish Oils (omega-3 fatty acids)
Numerous studies have been performed on the effects of fish oils and the reduction of cholesterol. These have resulted in a general consensus that a diet that includes fish oils can reduce the amount of LDL cholesterol in your blood. If you already have heart disease and begin using fish oils, you are less likely to have a heart attack, approximately 1/3 more likely to be alive two years later and about 14% more likely to be alive 3 ½ years later than if you did not take fish oils.
The fish oils found in Vasacor work by reducing the levels of triglycerides found in the blood. Vasacor uses the two most potent types of fish oil, EPA and DHA.
Guggulsterones have long been used to reduce cholesterol levels. Guggulsterones affect how cholesterol is metabolized, resulting in a significant decrease. In several studies, the use of Guggulsterones resulted in a reduction of total cholesterol by 15% to 25% and triglycerides by 22% to 30%. These results are equal to or better than those of several prescription medications used to lower cholesterol, but with fewer side effects.
The Guggulsterones found in Vasacor significantly reduce cholesterol as well as reduce LDL Oxidation. The Guggulsterones work by blocking the action of a specific receptor (FXR) in the body. By blocking this action, more cholesterol passes through the body without being absorbed into the bloodstream.
Beta-Sitosterol (Plant Phytosterol)
Studies have shown that in order to maximize the reduction of risk of coronary heart disease through the consumptions of plant sterols, one should consume at least 1300 mg of plant sterol esters and 3400 mgs of plant stanol esters.
Vasacor contains 400 mg of a concentrated plant sterol, Beta-sitosterol. The American Heart Association recommends that people consume at least two servings of 400 mg of plant sterols to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
