lipicontrol

A Supplement that helps optimize heart health.

The best news for heart health is that there are a multitude of protocols, nutritional options and supplements that can improve and ensure a healthy heart! So while we are providing one such supplement in this section today, it is far from being the only available option and we encourage you to work with your TWIHW healthcare provider for the best multi-pronged approach to meet your personal needs for optimizing heart health.

Lipid Control is a science-based Complementary Prescriptions supplement which is a powerful and effective combination of nutrients that has been shown to support and manage healthy lipid levels, vascular function, and circulation. This formula includes the nonflush form of niacin (vitamin B3), gamma oryzanol, beta-sitosterol, red yeast rice and guggulipid. Guggulipid contains the active constituents, guggulsterones, which can inhibit cholesterol synthesis in the liver and modulate bile acid metabolism. Gamma-oryzanol, derived from rice bran oil, is another substance that can support healthy lipid levels. Evidence suggests that gamma-oryzanol acts by decreasing cholesterol absorption and increasing cholesterol excretion. Other compounds in Lipid Control known to play a role in lipid health include beta-sitosterol and niacin. Beta-sitosterol, a plant sterol similar in structure to cholesterol, inhibits cholesterol absorption and helps maintain normal levels of cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol. Niacin (vitamin B3) also often is used to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Inositol hexanicotinate, which causes less or no flushing seen with other niacin or nicotinic acid supplementation, is therefore preferred by many people.
