I was taking lipitor for 10 years even when others adviced me of the side effects (muscular, joints, etc)that I never noticed. My 260 went down to 180 and was OK in general over the years, but I suddenly felt muscular and bone pain on the hands, legs, etc. So I decided to try this herb combination thanks to the recommendation of my Son who was taking it before they made 4-in-1 combination (he did to avoid taking Lipitor). In 5 weeks my total collesterol went down 40 points, I am now in 220 (62 years old) and plan to continue even if the 220 stays as is. No Lipitor anymore. I recommend the pills. You have to try them for a few weeks, then do a blood test, and marvle yourself.

first thing i worried abt is the size when ordering this and yes nightmare comes true, the softgel consider too big for my throat (I'm not sure for western people). just consumed them for several days and I haven't taken any blood test yet so I can't comment abt the effectiveness of this red omega another thing is the seaweed-kind after smell when burping, reminding me as if I finished eating sushi

These pills are huge! I have an enlarged Thyroid and can't choke these pills down. I can take my other vitamins and calcium pills but these are just too large. I tried squeezing out the liquid and taking it that way. That was worse because the oil lingers in your mouth and no food or toothpaste can get it out. My husband will take these pills and I'll try something else.
