According to the World Health Organization (WHO)* cardiovascular disease affects 40% of the world population and has a high mortality rate. However, It can be prevented 80% of the time by modifying patients’ lifestyles: eating healthy food, doing exercise, and smoking less. Currently, plant sterols offer a natural way for people to lower their cholesterol, and they can be found in certain foods of vegetable origin. Their effectiveness has been demonstrated; however, regular dietary consumption is not enough as diet alone is not enough to reach the minimum recommended amount to yield real results on cardiovascular health.

Cholesterol-lowering alternatives

There is a number of products that offer a solution for lowering high cholesterol levels, ranging from drugs (statins) to natural food supplements:

Statin intake has increased over the last 50 years and they have become well known all over the world. The benefits of statins for lowering LDL cholesterol in the short term are indisputable, compared to most products on the market today.

Despite their effectiveness, several studies have proven that they can produce a number of side effects ranging from important to serious, depending on the clinical history of each patient. This has led to questioning and special attention on the part of the World Health Organization (WHO), the medical community, and consumers themselves.

Between 10% and 15% of patients who take statins report side effects. The most prevalent is muscle pain, which appears in up to 30% of patients (depending on the measuring method)*. According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), some of the side effects of statins are:

If the dose is higher than required, results may not improve but these side effects can worsen. Additionally, statin consumption is contraindicated in patients under 18 and pregnant women.

The questions we should now be asking are:

2. RED YEAST RICE (RYR) EXTRACT (NATURAL STATIN)

This option is widely known in Europe. RYR extract is a type of statin (lovastatin); therefore, its regulation as medicine instead of food supplement is being questioned. Some countries have banned and/or restricted its use, including Switzerland, the United States, and Belgium, due to its multiple health consequences*.

We should consider these questions:

Plant sterols have traditionally been added to certain foods by mixing them into fats, specifically dairy products like margarine and yogurt. These are important nutritional supplements; however, it is very hard to get consumers to take the recommended 2-gram dose every day. Additionally, foods with trans fats end up stored in adipose tissues and may result in inflammation and hypertension, and the risk of cardiovascular disease increases. And in the case of margarine, for instance, patients would have to consume the equivalent of two golf balls every day.

Omega 3 is a well-known healthy food supplement used in various different therapies. It is widely available for consumers and there are different foods that contain omega 3, including fish.

Although the FDA and EFSA recommend using omega 3 in patients with high triglycerides to reduce their levels, they warn consumers of an increase in LDL cholesterol.

CARDIOSMILE’s sterols are dispersible and can be mixed into any food preparation, preferably into liquids. It is odorless and tasteless, which contributes to a more pleasant experience for consumers, who can easily incorporate it into their daily habits. CARDIOSMILE’s format is also versatile and can be carried anywhere. It has an imperceptible taste, unlike tablets and other current formats. People can choose whether to take 8 tablets a day or only one CARDIOSMILE sachet.

Supported by clinical studies, CARDIOSMILE directly competes with traditional products in the pharmaceutical industry. Although statins are more effective in lowering LDL cholesterol, CARDIOSMILE also lowers triglycerides.

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb image=”https://www.nutrartis.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Recurso-1@2x.png” icon_placement=”left” image_max_width=”75%” content_max_width=”1100px” _builder_version=”4.5.1″ header_text_align=”left” header_text_color=”#ffffff” body_font_size=”16px” custom_margin=”25px||12px||false|false” custom_padding=”0px||||false|false” hover_enabled=”0″ locked=”off”]

CARDIOSMILE works in the intestine; therefore, it can be combined with statins, which work in the liver. This joint work is cumulative, which means that their benefits are greater when used together. For instance, if statins lower cholesterol by an average of 32% and CARDIOSMILE lowers cholesterol by an average of 12%, when taken together LDL cholesterol would be reduced by 55%. If we wanted to reach the same results using only statins, such as 10mg atorvastatin, we would have to increase its consumption eightfold, which could amplify side effects.
