In the video below, I summarize the pros and cons of Guggulsterones… And how to best use it for maximum safety and effectiveness.
“So How Effective Is Guggulsterones For Lowering Cholesterol & Triglycerides?…”
This powerful ancient remedy has been re-discovered by Western culture. Gugulipid is made from the resin of the commiphora mukul tree of north central India. Gugulipid (gugulesterones) has been used for thousands of years to alleviate problems associated with obesity, acne, viral infections, the lowering of cholesterol and other ailments.
In a study published in 1989 by the Journal of Associated Physicians-India, 125 patients receiving gugulipid showed an 11% decrease in total serum cholesterol, a drop of 16.8% in triglycerides, and a 60% increase in HDL cholesterol within 3 to 4 weeks.
Patients with elevated cholesterol levels showed much greater improvement than normal patients.
The study quoted a second trial (included in the article noted above) where 205 patients receiving gugulipid at a dose rate of 25 mg at 10% extract E and Z forms (which is the exact amount found in CholesLo®), administered 3 times daily showed a 70% to 80% reduction of serum cholesterol, whereas no response was found in the placebo group (Journal of Associated Physicians-India, 1989, 37:328).
There are many, many more clinical studies clearly demonstrating that guggulsterones, at the right dosage and extract, safely lowers cholesterol levels without any negative side-effects.
Warnings & “Scams”
“Guggul” is an amazing compound because it has so many health benefits. Some have suggested that it has a positive association with cholesterol reduction and maintaining a healthy weight.
However, not all forms work.
- The “powder” or “dried root” forms do NOT work.
- You want to ONLY use the “extract” form of guggulsterones. The correct, clinical amount is 10% pure extract, both E and Z forms.
- A minimum of 50 mgs extract is needed dail, maximum dose would be 150 mgs daily. (FYI, 75 mgs is what’s used in CholesLo®)
- You never want to take only the guggulsterones by itself because you would have to take a very high dose of it to work and that’s when the negative side-effects start (more about this in a second…)
But, don’t go out and spend your hard-earned money on guggulsterones just yet …
“So, What’s YOUR Best & Safest Solution?…”
I’ll be honest with you. No one single ingredient works at 100% effectiveness forever, let alone for every person. And that includes red yeast rice or any other single herb or nutrient.
Think about it. Just like you don’t eat only broccoli for best health, you don’t want to use only one herb or nutrient either.
The best products use red yeast rice, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to dramatically help with lowering cholesterol & triglycerides. Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a product, which also work in synergy with red yeast rice are:
- Policosanol (make sure it contains specific “octacosanol” and not the cheaper form of “beta-sistosterol”)
- Garlic Extract (make sure it’s Deodorized with 1.3% alliin)
- Pantesin® d-Pantethine
- Guggulsterones (make sure it’s 10% Pure Extract; E and Z)
- Artichoke Leaf Extract (make sure it’s 15% Chlorogenic Acid, 5% Cynarin)
- Phytosterols Complex
Additionally, whatever product you select – make sure it has a liver cleansing formula (because your liver is where cholesterol problems first start) and something to reduce Homocysteine levels (which is 43% cause of heart attacks). This is REALLY IMPORTANT!
When the above ingredients are combined together in proper ratios, the “synergy” creates a much more effective solution, at a lower dose – WITHOUT your body adapting or having negative side-effects. That’s the secret!…
Confused? Too Many Options & Choices?
Here’s What Other People Have Done…
Now, you might be thinking, “Geez, I don’t want to take 20-30 pills a day, buying a bunch of bottles and herbs” and I don’t blame you. Who has the time OR money?…
Fortunately, there’s “all-in-one” solution called CholesLo™, which contains the above key ingredients, in specific extracted dosages — in addition to a couple other helpful ingredients.
The feedback has been amazing and since the product has been around since 1999, you know it works!
