CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL provides a natural means of lowering cholesterol that is entirely derived from edible plants. CholestaCare is our specially balanced blend of plant sterols, while Fibermucil is our all-natural, 100% pure, encapsulated Psyllium Husk powder from the high-fiber Indian plant Plantago ovata. Both of these active ingredients have been an important part of healthy vegetarian diets for centuries and in recent decades have been included in nutritional supplements for their heart health benefits. Beyond centuries of safely realized health benefits, both of these active ingredients are now FDA-approved to support heart health by lowering Total and LDL Cholesterol. In fact, according to the US Food and Drug Administration, consuming at least 400 mg per serving of CholestaCare twice daily with meals for a daily total intake of at least 800 mg of CholestaCare, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. One packet of CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL provides 800 mg of this FDA-approved active ingredient. To further enhance the proven cholesterol-lowering properties of CholestaCare, we have added Fibermucil, our all-natural, mild and non-abrasive, 100% pure Psyllium Husk powder. Dietary fiber is generally considered the most overlooked component in the American diet, which is unfortunate since it is well established that dietary fiber can naturally support heart health by safely reducing Total and LDL Cholesterol. Nowadays, heart health seems to be synonymous with lower cholesterol and as a result, millions of Americans are taking cholesterol-lowering “statin” drugs, which come with a very long list of dangerous side effects. If you and your physician would prefer a clinically proven, safe and natural method for achieving healthy cholesterol levels that contains two natural ingredients, then CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL is the perfect choice. When used in conjunction with the appropriate diet, CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL can reduce or even eliminate the need for cholesterol-lowering “statin” drugs by delivering reductions in cholesterol previously only thought to be achievable with drugs. Of course, partner with your physician to determine how CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL can best accomplish your cholesterol and “statin” drug reduction goals. The Western diet tends to increase our cholesterol levels and clinical studies have consistently proven that including the active ingredients from CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL in your diet can help to lower Total and LDL Cholesterol levels, providing a safe and easy way to help reduce your risk of heart disease. Despite the powerful, proven benefits of CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL, it is important to never underestimate the profound and long-term benefits of a healthy diet and active lifestyle. By adding CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL to such a diet and lifestyle, you and your doctor are assured of getting the very best results from your efforts. Despite CholestaCare's proven effectiveness, it should never provide an excuse to ignore one's diet. In fact, CHOLESTACARE PLUS FIBERMUCIL works best when taken with meals that contain less “bad” hydrogenated and saturated fat and cholesterol, and when you try to avoid simple sugars or convertible carbohydrates, such as potatoes, pasta, rice and bread.
