NOW Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFA) derived from sugar cane, a superior source of these natural plant waxes. Non-clinical studies have shown that the fatty alcohol constituents in Policosanol possess considerable antioxidant activity, can protect serum lipids against free radical attack, and support healthy immune function. Policosanol can support cardiovascular health through these and other mechanisms.

My mum uses this to reduce her cholesterol after a bad reaction to statins prescribed by a dr. To his surprise her blood tests results were good after a couple of months of using this product combined with red rice extract also bought on iherb.
The same as statins

As I react very bad to statins, I tried Policosanol, started with 2X1 with meals. After 14 days I started having foot pain (like with statins), decreased to 1 a day for another 14 days, but the foot pain increased and all the statin side effects came back.
Good for cholesterol

A few side effects
Posted by Reviewer2917570 on Aug 17, 2014
I started taking this supplement to reduce my high cholesterol level. I took 1 pill per day with food. I didn't notice any initial side effects but after a few weeks I had very dark, tarry stools and would sometimes feel dizzy throughout the day. I researched these side effects and learned they may have been caused by internal bleeding. Policosanol is also a blood thinner so this may have contributed to my symptoms. I immediately stopped taking the Policosanol and the side effects subsided. I now only take 1 pill every other day and haven't noticed any side effects returning. I haven't been re-checked for cholesterol but will update this review when I do. Seems to be a great product, just be cautious if you bleed easily or have thin blood.
