CholestGar Garlic-Guggul Compound 900mg 60 Tablets
Supports Normal Cholesterol Levels
Garlic. Surely it is one of nature’s more perfect foods. Its beneficial properties have been recognized for thousands of years, from ancient Egypt, the Early Roman Empire and traditional Chinese herbalism. As the body’s “river of life,” the bloodstream must flow smoothly and uninterrupted. Garlic’s powerful antioxidant action exerts a positive effect on the circulatory system. It is known to support the body’s natural defenses. And now numerous scientific studies are focused on how garlic is able to help maintain normal cholesterol levels and support heart health. Planetary Herbals GarliChol™ Garlic Extract and CholestGar™ Garlic-Guggul Compound represent the technical evolution of what science and tradition know today.
What Is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a solid waxy substance that enables cell membranes to maintain their integrity and provide an insulation shield around nerve fibers. In order to be transported in the bloodstream, cholesterol must be attached to carrier molecules. The liver manufactures two types of carrier molecules: LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). LDL molecules carry cholesterol from the liver out to repair damaged body cells, including those of the artery walls. HDL molecules transport cholesterol from body tissues back to the liver for disposal, removing excess fat and cholesterol from the bloodstream. So it is crucial to your health to have a proper and appropriate balance, as cholesterol itself is not necessarily bad.
Yogaraj Guggul: A Legendary Combination
CholestGar Garlic-Guggul Compound combines garlic with the respected Ayurvedic preparation, Yogaraj Guggul, also renowned for its effects on cholesterol.
Guggul, the resin of the Commiphora mukul tree, is one of the most important of all Ayurvedic herbs, and was traditionally said to prevent “coating and obstructions of the channels.” Modern research has confirmed this traditional knowledge by substantiating the effects of guggul’s most important class of constituents, the guggulsterones. The Yogaraj Guggul compound represents the most traditional and highly regarded of all Ayurvedic guggul preparations. This preparation unites the purified guggul gum resin with the legendary Ayurvedic cleansing compound, Triphala. In addition, CholestGar incorporates other Chinese botanicals including salvia, dong quai, ho shou wu and gambir, noted for their ability to support normal cardiovascular health, along with the Western classic, cayenne pepper.
