There are several options to relieve the side effects of the statins you’re taking to treat high cholesterol levels. Your doctor may suggest:
- Taking a brief break from statin therapy.
- Switching to another statin drug.
- Changing your dose.
- Taking it easy when exercising.
- Considering non-statin cholesterol-lowering medications.
- Trying coenzyme Q10 supplements
What your physician may not suggest is rejecting drugs altogether in favor of natural treatments like Cholesterade©. It’s understandable. People trained in medicine will look to medicine for health treatment.
But there is an alternative, one that’s proven effective for many people with high cholesterol.
The Mayo Clinic is quick to point out that diet and exercise are proven ways to reduce cholesterol, and that some natural products might be helpful. And a Harvard study has uncovered a direct link to diets high in soluble fiber and their ability to lower LDL cholesterol.
Makes sense to us. Cholesterade© contains soluble Acacia Fiber, an excellent source of dietary fiber that promotes good digestion and colon and intestinal health. An independent study performed at the University of Florida showed that soluble fiber from Acacia gum affected the cholesterol levels in human plasma dramatically: triglycerides were reduced by 50%, total cholesterol by 17.9%, and bad cholesterol by 21.4%. HDL, or good cholesterol, was increased by 12.9%, and the HDL (good) to LDL (bad) cholesterol ratio was increased by 44%!
Cholesterade© promotes probiotic function to help overall gut health, helps curb appetite and aids digestion, and dissolves readily in liquids.

Note: Sometimes, despite making healthy lifestyle choices and taking supplements and other cholesterol-lowering products, you still need help lowering your cholesterol levels. If your doctor prescribes medication to reduce your cholesterol, take it as directed while you continue to focus on a healthy lifestyle.
