Cholesterol is a big worry for many of us, especially as we grow older. It seems that every day there is a new magic cure for cholesterol or a new food you shouldn’t be eating.
We don’t know about magic cures, but we do know that Optibac Probiotics For Your Cholesterol has undergone huge amounts of research and clinical trials to prove that its ingredients help maintain normal levels of cholesterol.
Each daily dose contains 1.2 billion ‘AB-life’ live cultures (made up of three different strains) as well as Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. The strains of bacteria used in these capsules are the first strains available in the UK that are proven to help lower cholesterol by both reducing the absorption of cholesterol from the diet, and reducing the production of cholesterol in the liver.
Please bear in mind that these capsules are not suitable for vegetarians.
As a food supplement ‘For your cholesterol’ can be taken with the following recommendations: – Take one hard capsule and one soft capsule every day. – Take with food, preferably with breakfast.
– For best results, take daily for at least three months.
– May be used on an ongoing basis.
– Safe to take alongside statins or other cholesterol lowering medication.
Note: The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of alpha-linolenic acid as part of a balanced diet. Safety It is not recommended to give live cultures to patients who: are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the Intensive Care Unit, have blood in the stool, have central venous catheters; or to post-surgical patients with open wounds, or infants with short bowel syndrome; unless under a doctor’s care.
