The Cholesterol Solutions Statin Drug Makers Won’t Tell You About
Over the years, several studies have shown cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can lead to diabetes. The biggest was the famous JUPITER study which showed a strong link between statins and diabetes.
Now Astra-Zeneca, the manufacturer of the statin drug Crestor, has paid for a reanalysis of the JUPITER study. In that study, the researchers found that only those who were obese or had high blood sugar got diabetes from statin drugs—and that it was perfectly safe for those with no diabetes risk factors.
Folks, this is hogwash! Crestor just wants to sell more statin drugs and will go to any length to make their case. But what you won’t hear from Astra-Zeneca, or any of the makers of statin drugs, is that while they’re busy defending their profits a far better natural solution has been developed—called Cholactiv®.
The Cholactiv blend is a combination of special grape seed extract and phosphatidylcholine from soy, evening primrose oil, tomato extract, and policosanol. It’s been shown in clinical trials to lower cholesterol by a full 10% in just four weeks. Plus, within six weeks, 90% of those taking this blend had a more than 20% reduction in unwanted LDL cholesterol.
In another open trail comparing the Cholactiv blend with no treatment, 50 volunteers with high cholesterol had an average 21% decrease in total cholesterol and a 15% decrease in triglycerides—plus a significant decrease in C-reactive protein (CRP), which is a marker of inflammation.
This isn’t surprising since there’s not a lot of profit to be made in things like grape seed or tomato extract. But I’ve been very impressed with the clinical results of the Cholactiv blend, and feel it’s a much safer alternative to statin drugs.
Another powerful solution I recommend for lowering cholesterol is a daily combination of ¼ cup of fresh ground flaxseed, 500-1,500 mg of niacin (not niacinamide) in divided doses, and 1,500-2,000 mg of plant sterols. But again, no one is going to put advertising dollars behind things like flaxseed and plant sterols.
Now it’s your turn: What do you think of this latest study?
