Heart health

is essential. Without a working heart, there’s nothing.  We’re gonna need a good kicker, if we don’t have a good ticker. Or even if one may want to be preventative and proactive rather than regrettably reactive, a little policosanol can help big time.

 

 

 

 

 

What is it?

 

 

Policosanol is a mixture of nine, primary aliphatic alcohols and is derived from sugar cane wax. Mainly having octacosanol, a powerful antioxidant that helps with cardiovascular health, all other 8 aliphatic alcohols play a key role in promoting cardio health as well.

 

 

 

 

 

What does it do?

It is believed to have cholesterol-lowering effects. It’s also thought to reduce blood clots, improve blood vessel health, speed up healing time in open wounds, as well as reducing blood sugar levels.

Clinical studies show policosanol works as good as FDA-approved drugs in lowering cholesterol but is free of side-effects.  After 24 weeks, policosanol at 20 and 40 mg/day lowered LDL-cholesterol (the bad kind of cholesterol) by 27.4% and 28.1%, while total cholesterol was reduced by 15.6% and 17.3%.

What separates MyNutra’s Policosanol from any other?

  • The main ingredient is octacosanol, a derivative of a wax from sugar cane plants.
  • Contains eight other aliphatic alcohols useful in supporting healthy cholesterol
  • Once daily 20 mg vegetarian capsule
  • In another study, 10-20 mg of policosanol showed 21-29% lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and 8-15% higher HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Made from 100% pure sugar cane
  • Standardized to 50% octacosanol
  • Ingredients in policosanol comparable to those used in Cuban studies showing reduction in LDL and increase in HDL cholesterol
  • CONTAINS NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives; no wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, crustacean shellfish or fish. Suitable for vegans

Policosanol seems to me like a well rounded verse in the chorus of cardiovascular health, one that we could all sing along with.

Have you had any experience with policosanol, or maybe are you taking something else to help your cardiovascular strategies? Let us know in the comments!

  • I use "My Nutra" hemp paste 2000 mg. I like the fact that they use the WHOLE plant instead of just extracting the oil from the plant, it is seems to be more effective that way. I have also had very good success giving this to my autistic son. It relaxes him when he gets anxious, and there are no bad side effects. Excellent product!
  • The Hemp Paste is a gift from God. The stuff really works and the taste is not as bad as you use it regularly. I won’t leave the house without taking some. I have never slept so well in my life. It allows me to be active and adds to my daily well being. Thank you!
  • I had a great experience with this company and the hemp paste. I think it tastes good for what it is. I did not experience any head high but great pain relief. It was much better than I expected.
  • My father has been using My Nutra hemp paste for months with great success. I have been able to see firsthand how he has benefited from taking the hemp paste usually just once a day and occasionally twice. I especially like the idea of the My Nutra hemp paste being an all natural product that provides him with knee pain relief. Now I know exactly what to get him for his birthday!
  • Love this product over oils. We've tried quite a few and both me and my husband feel this is absorbed better and we like that it is the WHOLE plant. The processing of the plant leaves a much smaller carbon footprint which is so important as well. Husband uses it for arthritis in knees and me for occasional anxiety and insomnia. Works well for all of it.
