General Recommended Use

As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules, twice daily with 8 oz of water (preferably with food or beginning of a meal). Do this during the week (5 days on) with the weekends off (2 days off). Each bottle will last an average of 30-days.

As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules, twice daily with a big glass of water before a meal or with food, for a total of 4 capsules daily or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

You can also use it weekdays ON and weekends OFF, for example:

  • Monday through Friday (weekdays): 2 capsules, 2x daily.
  • Saturday/Sunday (weekends): OFF

For best results, use continuously for a minimum for 8-12 weeks, so your body can have time to naturally normalize and optimize your lipid levels before you do your next blood tests.

If the desired results aren't achieved after 12 weeks, increase the dose. Maximum daily dose is 8 pills.

When taking your blood test, please make sure you are still using this product at the time of the blood work. Do not go "off" and then take your blood test because the results will not be accurate.

Ingredient Benefits

The Cholesterol Optimizer™ formula works so well and is popular because of the specific scientifically researched ingredients used in the correct combinations, dosages and extracts; resulting in maximum results & benefits. Click the ingredients below and a detailed description will appear under it.

INTRO: Your goal is to have healthy cholesterol and lipid levels within a normal, youthful range. We obviously don't want "high" cholesterol. However, "low" cholesterol isn't healthy either. To achieve this goal, we've utilized 4 scientifically researched ingredients at the highest, scientifically validated extract dose:

Cardio.Aid.®-S Plant Phytosterols Complex (40% extract from Non-GMO pine tree extract): Plant sterols and plant stanols are collectively known as phytosterols. Because they so closely resemble cholesterol, they can actually block food-based cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream19*

NOTE: We use Cardio.Aid.®, a patented version. This version the highest extract at 40%, which has been shown in scientific studies to work. We also have utilized the Non-GMO version, for safer consumption.

Berg.avit.® Bergamot (Citrus bergamia 40% extract): a patented, clinically studied, Non-GMO, standardized extract containing the main active flavonoids of bergamot juice. Sustainably sourced from the Calabria region in Italy, this potent ingredient works to support cardiovascular health and support healthy blood lipid levels.5,6*

NOTE: Patented Bergavit® has shown to decrease LDL "bad" cholesterol concentration by up to 67% in a 6-month clinical study.*® Soy isoflavone (40% extract): numerous studies have shown specific soy isoflavones demonstrating a wide array of benefits, including supporting cardiovascular, cholesterol and bone health.*

NOTE: One would need to consume a tremendous amount of soy, to get the same benefits found in patented® Soy isoflavone, utilizes the highest extract concentration of 40%.*

NOTE: Once we've supported total cholesterol, lipid and triglyceride levels within a normal, healthy range - we need to promote healthy and balance HDL ("good", high-density lipoprotein) and LDL ("bad", low-density lipoprotein ) ratios.

Research has shown this may be more important than total cholesterol levels. We've used 3 powerful, science-backed ingredients to support healthy HDL/LDL ratios.*

Pycri.nil.® Artichoke Leaf Extract (STD: 15% Chlorogenic Acid, 5% Cynarin): Contains polyphenolic compounds, in which clinical studies have demonstrated supporting optimal HDL/LDL ratios already within normal range.*

NOTE: Pycri.nil® has the highest and purest artichoke leave extract validated in human research studies.

Pan.tesin® d-Pantethine: Works at the cellular level, enhancing enzyme and metabolic activity to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, promoting balanced HDL & LDL, within a normal, youthful range.*

NOTE: Pantesin® is the only correct version of d Pantethine validated in 35+ years of scientific studies, supporting its positive effects on cholesterol levels.*

Vitamin B3 (Niacin) : an essential B-complex vitamin needed by every part of your body for healthy function and is clinically shown to support healthy blood lipid levels.* It helps promote healthy “good” HDL & “bad” LDL profile, within a normal range.*

NOTE: Did you know that half of all heart attacks happen to people with NORMAL blood cholesterol levels?... That's because there are other risk factors that can be problematic and one of the major ones is unhealthy homocysteine levels.*

Fortunately, the correct ratios of specific B-vitamins + a special form of Vitamin E can help promote healthy homocysteine levels within a normal, youthful range.*

It's an amino acid in the blood, associated with an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. 27 Medical experts predict that homocysteine levels will prove to be as important as cholesterol in predicting heart and brain health.

A lack of nutrients in the diet, particularly a specific group of B-vitamins. Without these essential vitamins, your body is unable to produce the enzymes necessary to remove homocysteine efficiently from your blood.

A lack of B Vitamins and E, can lead to elevated homocysteine levels, which is why high homocysteine and vegetarian diets are directly related. 26 Fortunately the situation is easily treatable with the following combination of specific forms and dosages of vitamins:

  • B2 (as Riboflavin)
  • B5 (Pantothenic Acid as D-Calcium Panothenate)
  • B6 (as pyridoxine HCL)
  • B12 (as methylcobalamin)
  • Folate (as 5-Methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF))
  • E (as Mixed Tocotrienols; 90% Delta & 10% Gamma Tocotrienols)

NOTE: Mitochondria gives energy to all your cells. They play a key role in the normal functioning of the heart and every organ in the body. Unfortunately, as we age and negative changes in hormones, mitochondria production drops.

Taking many medications, especially cholesterol-lowering drugs, can deplete mitochondria even more. For a healthy heart, brain and organ function, we should improve levels of mitochondria production after the age of 35.*

Co-Q10 (Ubiquinone + Ubiquinol): Known as Co-enzyme Q-10, is found in every cell in the body - the most found in the organs, muscles and heart. Unfortunately, natural production of CoQ10 peaks in our 20s. Because of aging, lack of hormones, genetics and lifestyle, it's best to supplement BOTH forms of CoQ10, Ubiquinone + Ubiquinol, for maximum absorption and results. 10-12*

NOTE: Did you know that most of the body's supply of cholesterol (approximately 80%) is made in the liver and NOT from the dietary cholesterol you eat?

Unfortunately, due to aging and unhealthy lifestyles (dehydration, drugs, alcohol, toxins in our foods, etc.), our liver gets weaker and is unable to excrete excess cholesterol, like it once use to, in our younger years.

Therefore, we've included liver support and detoxifying ingredients, to help promote healthy lipid levels, cholesterol metabolism & cell health:*

Choline + Phosphatidylcholine: is an essential nutrient found in high amounts in raw egg yolks. It directly impacts liver function, healthy brain development, muscle movement and cholesterol health.* We use two different forms for better absorption and results.
