Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in North America and high cholesterol is a contributing factor in heart disease. Although controlling high cholesterol can be difficult, many people succeed with the right combination of cholesterol supplements and changes in diet. In order to reduce the risk of developing high cholesterol levels and heart disease, it is important to incorporate lifestyle changes into any prevention plan. + Read more >
Changes that can have a positive effect and enhance the effects of cholesterol supplements include quitting smoking, getting enough exercise, managing stress and eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. Increasing your dietary fibre, eating lots of raw vegetables and fruits, drinking clear fluids and decreasing your intake of fatty foods can all help to lower your dietary cholesterol intake. For many people it is difficult to eat sufficient fibre, so adding a fibre supplement to your cholesterol supplements may be beneficial. Controlling high cholesterol is important not only to prevent heart disease but in helping prevent strokes. Cholesterol plaques build up on the inside of the arteries which leads to a decrease in the elasticity of the artery walls. Pieces of the cholesterol plaques can break off or the turbulent blood flow around the plaques can cause blood clots to form. If one of these plaques or clots dislodge they can travel to smaller vessels and cause a blockage, which leads can lead to a stroke or heart attack. Antioxidants are essential cholesterol supplements because they help prevent the oxidization of the cholesterol. Oxidization produces free radicals which have been shown to cause cell damage and death. Antioxidants that should be part of a cholesterol supplement program include Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, and Grape Seed extract. Because the balance of LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and HDL (“good” cholesterol) is very important in the prevention of high cholesterol and heart disease, essential fatty acids should also be part of any cholesterol supplement program. Essential fatty acids help reduce the bad cholesterol and produce the good cholesterol. Non-flush niacin, hawthorn berry and garlic have all been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. Caution should be used however if you are taking prescription blood thinners as both Garlic and Vitamin E supplements also have blood¬ thinning properties. Take control of lowering high cholesterol levels and preventing heart disease with cholesterol supplements from Body Energy Club’s online vitamin store. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >

Green Lipped FFATM is the stable free fatty acid extract of Perna canaliculus, the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This extract contains an unique profile of fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements. These fatty acids modulate the body's production of eicosanoids, key local cellular "hormones" involved in inflammatory responses, acting through inhibition of 5- and 12-lypoxygenase and other key enzymes. Studies show that these effects make this mixture more effective nutritional support than conventional fish oils.

Niacin No-Flush is inositol hexanicotinate, a form of the B vitamin niacin bound to the B-vitamin-like simple polyol inositol. Regular niacin causes unpleasant side effects such as itchy, burning skin- the niacin "flush". Standard niacin may also harm the liver. Inositol hexanicotinate delivers niacin to the bloodstream slowly, eliminating the niacin "flush," and has not been associated with impaired liver health or other side effects of conventional or "slow-release" niacin.
