More info

Policosanol is a mixture of natural substances extracted from sugarcane wax found on the coating of stems and leaves.

In our bloodstream, cholesterol exists in two forms. One is bad (LDL cholesterol), in the sense that it can lead to the formation of plaque in our arteries, especially when it becomes oxidised by free radicals. The other is good (HDL cholesterol), in the sense that it does not do this but is instead transported to the liver for metabolism or excretion.

What is the effect of Policosanol on cholesterol? About 1 third of our cholesterol comes from our diet. 2 thirds of cholesterol is produced by our own body through conversion of AcetylCoA. Policosanol slowdowns the activity of an enzyme that is involved in the conversion of AcetylCoA. As a result, it slows down the production of cholesterol.
