Nature Made® Cholest-Off, 240 Caplets

Lowers cholesterol naturally and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Clinically Proven Even if you watch your diet and exercise regularly it may not be enough to lower your cholesterol to heart healthy levels. That's where Nature Made CholestOff can help. Over a million people have chosen CholestOff as part of a plan to lower cholesterol. CholestOff contains an all-natural drug free blend of plant sterols and stanols, called Reducol™.  Reducol has been clinically studied and proven to prevent the absorption of dietary sources of cholesterol to help lower levels of both total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol. Over 100 clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of sterols and stanols (also called phytonutrients) for lowering cholesterol levels when taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan. CholestOff is a safe and effective for promoting healthy cholesterol levels and may be a great alternative to prescription drugs for individuals with mild to moderately elevated levels. While CholestOff may be safely combined with medication designed to lower high cholesterol, patients on such prescription regimens are encouraged to talk to their health care professional before adding CholestOff.   CholestOff provides the extra 1.8 grams of plant sterols and stanols daily that many Americans need to reach National Institutes of Health (NIH) Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) Guidelines. These guidelines include 2 grams of plant sterols and stanols per day. The average Western (American) diet only provides 0.2 grams per day, which is only 10% of the sterols and stanols suggested by the NIH to reduce cholesterol.   †These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Didn't work for me, may work for you

"Just like Jayes, didn't work for me either. My triglycerides went up after using Cholest-Off for 9 months. Now trying slo-niacin to lower cholesterol/triglycerides. Statin would be next step after niacin.
Since there is actually some credible science and testing for this product, I assume I am just a 'non-responder' to this product. Talk to your Dr and give it a try."

No help in my cholesterol numbers

Model Number: Lot 13696
"I have been taking CholestOff for 8 months now and I have seen no change in my cholesterol--as a matter of fact, it has gone up! I walk 4 miles everyday (hills), and I was just tested and my cholesterol level was 286! I am now taking a statin to get my cholesterol down--the doctor was not happy with me and felt CholestOff was a waste of money. I agree."

Safer than Prescribed

"My wife needs cholesterol control according to tests. A few of her friends and coworkers have suffered liver damage from prescribed medication. She refused prescribed meds because of this and has been taking Cholest -Off and Nature Made's other pill for dealing with the genetic side of cholesterol production. She also eats 1/3 C of steel-cut oatmeal each morning, limits fat intake, eats no beef, and jogs 7 miles , one to two days a week.."

Effective

"My MD suggested Cholest-Off. I took 1 tablet before every meal that was relatively high in cholesterol and made no other dietary modifications. After 2 months chol went from 249 to 219. Remains to be seen, but seems like it worked."
