No effect on cholesterol at all
Posted by aigereem on Jul 16, 2012
I read a lot of positive reviews about Policosanol in general and NOW's supplement in particular, and was very optimistic about it. My husband has a family hypercholestorolemia, his levels of total cholesterol and LDL are high since he was very young. Sadly, this supplement had absolutely no effect on his cholesterol and LDL levels after 2 bottles (1 x day = half a year of taking it). The blood test results show exactly the same elevated levels of total cholesterol and LDL, just as they were before he started taking Policosanol. I am disappointed.

Cholesterol, get it down quick
Posted by 5735307082379389920 on May 30, 2012
I brought my cholesterol down 66 points with this policosanol. Some policosanols do not do the same job. NOW, is a great brand.

I started taking this after reading in the 24HOUR PHARMACIST, by Suzy Cohen, that she recommends policosanol to help keep arteries clear of plaque. I take this daily instead of the dreaded STATIN DRUGS!!! I do not take ANY prescription drugs. Thanks to iHerb, I am a healthy 61 year old, who runs on 4 floors of a 9 floor hospital with a phlebotomy cart, and still has energy at the end of my shift!

I will know more about the effect of Policosanol in April 2012, I will update my review then. For the present time I would like to say that I am very happy with the Iherb service. Cholesterol test done on 28 Feb 2012. Total cholesterol slightly lower, unfortunately both LDL and HDL a little lower. We will continue with Policosanol.

Policosanol Double strength

We have opted to use these tablets rather than chemical statins which resulted in side effects for my husband. They are very effective in lowering cholesterol and mine dropped markedly as well.

I have been taking the PAGG approach from the 4HB. This product appears to be working just great
