Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in America with nearly 610,000 fatal cases each year. A significant contributor to the staggering prevalence of cardiovascular disease is hyperlipidemia, or more simply put an imbalance of good and bad cholesterol and/or elevated levels of triglycerides. Cholesterol plays an important role in healthy bodily function, but an excess of LDL or “bad cholesterol” can contribute to cardiovascular issues including atherosclerosis, increased blood pressure, and greater risk of heart attack or stroke. Fortunately, proper supplementation with a product such as HoltraCeuticals’ Chol-Less Max KO can help protect heart health and normalize cholesterol through system-wide support.
What is Chol-Less Max KO?
Chol-Less Max KO is a potent supplement produced by HoltraCeuticals that is formulated specifically for patients with dyslipidemia. Most people at risk of heart disease exhibit signs of dyslipidemia such as elevated LDL cholesterol, reduced HDL cholesterol, and increased triglyceride levels.
Typically, dyslipidemia and cholesterol issues are treated with statin drugs. Unfortunately, these common cholesterol reducers are associated with major side effects including liver damage, muscle pain, elevated blood sugar, memory loss, and increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Chol-Less Max KO is a supplement that supports heart health, improves cholesterol regulation, and reduces triglyceride levels without the harmful side effects associated with statins.
Taking Chol-Less Max KO can alleviate atherosclerosis, reduce plaque buildup and prevent arterial inflammation. Other benefits include improved liver function, promotion of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity, and increased bile production allowing for more efficient excretion of triglycerides and cholesterol. Each of these actions support cardiovascular health and can improve longevity.
What’s in Chol-Less Max KO?
The various benefits provided by Chol-Less Max KO are made possible with its powerful ingredients. The unique formulation of minerals, antioxidants, and other natural ingredients found in Cho-Less Max KO support cardiovascular health in many different ways. Each of the following ingredients offer unique heart health benefits.
The primary ingredient in Chol-Less Max KO is chromium. Chromium is a trace mineral that is necessary for various bodily processes including thee metabolization of cholesterol. Studies suggest that a healthy intake of chromium helps reduce LDL cholesterol levels while simultaneously improving HDL cholesterol levels.
Research shows that increased intake of chromium improves regulation of cholesterol synthesis, promotes removal of excess cholesterol, and reduces buildup of plaque in the arteries. Alternatively, those with poor chromium intake or suffer from chromium deficiency are at greater risk of heart disease and a variety of disruptive symptoms. Using a supplement such as Chol-Less Max KO helps combat chromium deficiency and can be used to optimize chromium levels to better support cardiovascular function.
Red Yeast Rice
Red yeast rice is a natural product that may be an effective alternative to statins. Unlike common statin products such as Lipitor, Crestor, and Lescol, red yeast rice is composed of a mixture of statin-like compounds called monacolins. Studies show that even at lower concentrations, the monacolins in red yeast rice have a similar cholesterol-regulating effect as statins but have a much smaller risk of toxicity and dangerous side effects. This has led some researchers to believe that other components of red yeast rice such as phytosterols, isoflavones, and unsaturated fatty acids may provide notable heart health benefits.
Clinical studies have shown that proper supplementation with red yeast rice may be able to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol upwards of 33 percent. One study found that participants who regularly used red yeast rice over a period of three months had an average LDL reduction of 27 percent compared to the six percent drop seen in the placebo group. Clearly, taking red yeast rice or supplements containing it can have a powerful impact on cholesterol balance and heart health.
Garlic has been used for many years as a remedy for a wide range of conditions. More recent and quantifiable research shows that garlic may indeed provide notable health benefits, specifically regarding the heart. Multiple studies show that regular consumption of garlic can lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. However, supplementing with garlic extract may provide even greater benefits.
One study found that supplementing with aged garlic extract reduced circulating cholesterol levels by 7 percent and lowered LDL cholesterol by 10 percent in males with elevated cholesterol. The cholesterol-reducing mechanism of garlic is not fully understood but studies continue to confirm that supplementing with garlic or products containing garlic extract such as Chol-Less Max KO can provide notable heart health benefits.
Coenzymes are necessary for many bodily functions including regulating blood pressure, transporting electrons, and providing cellular energy. CoQ10 is an important coenzyme required by every cell in the body. It is particularly important regarding heart health. As a powerful antioxidant, CoQ10 protects against cholesterol oxidation, which can lead to significant cardiac disruption. CoQ10 also aids in the removal of excess cholesterol and supports mitochondrial function in the heart to keep it energized.
One of the most notable aspects of CoQ10 is that it limits the negative effect of statins. When taking statins in any form, including red yeast rice, it is important to supply the body with enough CoQ10 to facilitate healthy bodily function. Statins actively inhibit the body’s production of CoQ10, which can result in serious side effects.
Low levels of CoQ10 may cause a reduction in cognitive ability, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, muscle conditions, and heart disease. Therefore, it is essential that levels of CoQ10 be maintained at the appropriate level. Doing so can be accomplished through the use of products such as Chol-Less Max KO.
Supplementing with Cho-Less Max KO to Support Heart Health
Those who have elevated levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while also exhibiting reduced HDL cholesterol are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease. Fortunately, these and other factors of heart disease may be eased through effective supplementation. HoltraCeuticals’ Chol-Less Max KO is a supplement formulated specifically to support those with hyperlipidemia. Powerful ingredients including chromium, red yeast rice, garlic extract, CoQ10, and others work synergistically to provide cardiovascular benefits including better cholesterol regulation. Support heart health and improve cholesterol levels by using Chol-Less Max KO.
