Description

Essential for the body, cholesterol is a lipid that naturally circulates in the blood. The body synthesizes 75%; only 25% are derived from the diet. There are two types of cholesterol:  "good" cholesterol, transported by high-density lipoproteins (HDL), and "bad" cholesterol, transported by low-density lipoproteins (LDL).

An excess of "bad cholesterol" (LDL) gives rise to fatty plaque which may adhere to the walls of the arteries and become harmful for cardiovascular equilibrium. "Good" cholesterol (HDL) limits the poor-quality lipid deposits.

LIMICOL contributes to naturally regulating your cholesterol thanks to its exclusive formula:

  • Artichoke extract, endowed with antioxidant properties, contributes to maintaining normal blood lipid levels and facilitating digestion of the fats by the body.
  • Red yeast rice, sugar cane policosanol, garlic extract, pine bark PCO and vitamins B2, B3 and E complete the unique formula which has demonstrated its efficacy against cholesterol in 3 clinical trials including a total of 184 subjects (15.3% reduction in total cholesterol ¹, 21.4% reduction in LDL-cholesterol ¹ and 12.2% reduction in triglycerides ²).

The active substances are supplied at rigorously appropriate doses!  The efficacy of LIMICOL and the uniqueness of its formula are based on the synergistic action of the 8 active substances selected and the precise doses of each ingredient, which are lower than those recommended for the ingredients taken separately. This particular feature helps avoid the discomfort generally observed.

LIMICOL is to be taken in the context of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
