DESCRIPTION

NOW Foods - Policosanol from Sugar Cane 20 mg. - 90 Vegetarian Capsules

Good Cardiovascular Health With Policosanol
There are many ways to maintain good cardiovascular health and aside from improving one’s fiber profile, it is also beneficial to consume healthy long-chain fatty acids. The benefits of long-chain fatty acids include mood regulation, reduce the risk of heart attacks, and helps with the brain development among infants to name a few. One of the most popular long-chain fatty acids in Omega-3 but there are many others that the body can benefit including Policosanol. Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty acids derived from plant sources such as sugarcane and wheat. It is used to maintain strong and clog-free arteries, healthy cholesterol levels, and healthy blood serum profile.

    How Does Policosanol Work?
    Policosanol is one of the many healthy plant waxes that can be incorporated into anyone’s diet. Studies have shown that it can decrease the liver’s production of cholesterol. Moreover, it can also increase the body’s ability to break down low-density lipoproteins (LDL) that is also known as “bad” cholesterol. Aside from breaking down cholesterol, policosanol can also reduce the viscosity of the platelets thereby preventing the risk for arterial clogging. The mechanisms of policosanol ensure that the heart and the entire cardiovascular health is protected.

    Policosanol Supports a Good Heart Health
    The overall benefits of policosanol are that it helps improve cardiovascular health. But specifically, it has been known to effectively treat leg pain due to poor circulation or intermittent claudication. Intake of policosanol supplements can help improve the distance that people with such a condition can walk. Aside from leg pain, this supplement also has anecdotal benefits on clogged arteries and inherited high cholesterol. It also contains high amounts of antioxidants that can help the body fight the damages caused by free radicals. Lastly, it can also support healthy functioning of the immune system.

    Natural Plant-Based Ingredients
    NOW Foods’ policosanol supplements are made from natural plant-based ingredients. A serving of one (1) vegetable capsule contains 20 milligrams of policosanol from sugar cane. It also contains other ingredients including extracts from artichokes (100mg), milk thistle (100mg), and grape seed (30mg). It also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid that is a good antioxidant. It can also boost healthy metabolism in the body.

    Good For Vegetarians
    Because it is devoid of any animal-based ingredients, this supplement can be good for vegetarians and vegans. But aside from being vegetarian-friendly, the supplements are also devoid from other ingredients that may deem harmful to the body. As such, it does not contain any wheat, gluten, milk, shellfish, preservatives, and artificial sweeteners. This makes the supplement great for people who also have many diet restrictions. This makes the supplement good for everyone.

    Tested For Safety
    Several independent studies have confirmed the safety of policosanol as a supplement. It is likely safe for people when taken orally in small doses for several years. However, there are possible side effects including a mild headache, upset stomach, skin redness, difficulty sleeping, and weight loss. Thus, it is crucial to check with a physician prior to consuming this supplement. This is especially true among women who are pregnant and breastfeeding. People who have a bleeding disorder or have recently undergone surgery should not take this supplement because it can slow down the body’s clotting factors.

    Now Foods 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 Now Foods Policosanol possess considerable antioxidant activity, can protect serum lipids against free radical attack and support healthy immune function. Now Foods Policosanol can support cardiovascular health through these and other mechanisms.

    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
