  • OVERVIEW

    Keep Your Blood Flowing

    Help keep your cholesterol in check with Cholesta Check. Formulated to breakdown and manage your “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, this product contains active ingredients naturally found in foods and herbs that work with your body’s natural processes to support your arteries staying clear by helping the liver properly metabolize cholesterol, balancing the ratio of good and bad cholesterol, and reducing your total cholesterol.

    This advanced formula supports the body with its management of cholesterol to help lower the risk of heart disease and stroke but without the negative side effects of drugs.

    Crunching the numbers

    You may be good at adding and subtracting, but if your cholesterol numbers are too high, it can seem arduous to try to balance those numbers. One in six adults has high cholesterol — so if you do, you’re not alone. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Canadians over 45, and high cholesterol has shown to be a risk factor; people with high cholesterol have twice the risk of heart disease as people with normal levels.

    Go with the flow

    To rule out this factor, take basic steps to maintain low cholesterol, and keep your blood flowing freely through your arteries. By lowering one of the risk factors for heart disease, you will also improve your overall health and vitality because making the lifestyle changes needed to reduce cholesterol will impact all areas of your life.

    While you wouldn’t intentionally clog your arteries, you may do just that with the lifestyle choices that you make. Eating too much fast food, junk food, red meat, dairy foods, sugar, white flour and processed vegetable oils, and drinking too much alcohol and caffeine have all been shown to directly or indirectly raise cholesterol levels.

    Medicate it?

    Although cholesterol-lowering medications are readily available, studies show that diet and lifestyle changes are as, or even more, powerful than drugs even if they take a little longer. These natural methods help lower heart disease and stroke risk without drugs’ negative side effects.

    Features

    Enerex Cholesta Check’s advanced nutritional support may help manage cholesterol and work with your body’s natural processes to support your arteries and promote healthy blood. Our formula naturally metabolizes cholesterol and may restore healthy heart circulation with essential nutrients including B Vitamins, often lacking in the diet yet essential to balance fats.

    It offers: 

    • Reishi Mushroom may decrease the amount of cholesterol in the body due to its substance adenosine that affects the liver’s cholesterol production
    • Red Yeast Rice (rice fermented with yeast), a traditional Chinese medicine, is proven to lower total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol due to its monacolins
    • Plant Sterols work to block cholesterol absorption by offsetting the amount of cholesterol in the intestines (US’s National Cholesterol Education/Adult Treatment III program recommends Plant Sterols as part of a heart healthy plan)
    • Policosanol, made from purified sugar cane wax, has been shown in several clinical studies to decrease total cholesterol and LDL and increase HDL cholesterol
    • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) lowers LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol
    • Vitamin B6, Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) and Vitamin B12 maintain proper levels of homocysteine, a risk factor for heart disease and stroke
    • Choline and Inositol (nutrients related to B Vitamins) help metabolize (process) cholesterol in the liver
    • L-Methionine is an amino acid that helps reduce cholesterol and fat in the liver. For over 50 years, studies have shown these influences (Am J Clin Nutr. Oct 1963)


    Cholesterol is not the enemy

    Understand that cholesterol is not bad. It is essential to keep you alive. This waxy substance is found in every cell of the body and is a cell protector. It helps to make digestive acids (bile), assists in making hormones like testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, helps make vitamins, and keeps your nerves healthy. And your body makes a lot of it; you get approximately 90% of the body’s daily cholesterol requirement from your liver, and only 10% is from your diet. Cholesterol only becomes worrisome when too much of it is found in two specific areas: your blood and your artery walls.

    And even when it collects on your arteries, research now finds that it is there attempting to cover damage that was previously done to your artery walls due to lifestyle habits. Problems happen when too much cholesterol collects in the bloodstream because it, and plaque, may clog passageways that lead to your heart and brain.

    Get checked

    You should have no more than 200 mg/dl total cholesterol; 100 mg/dl or less LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and 40 mg/dl or higher HDL or “good” cholesterol. When these numbers are off balance, you may need to be proactive and make lifestyle changes.
