What is CholBiome®?
Transforming the way cardiovascular health is approached, CholBiome® is a unique food supplement that combines three natural, science-backed ingredients to help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol.
A holistic alternative to pharmaceutical treatments, this innovative product helps to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol to promote overall heart wellness.
How does it work?
High levels of cholesterol are commonly treated with statins, which are known to be associated with a host of undesirable side effects. CholBiome® on the other hand works by modifying the individual’s current microbiome activity to offer a natural, scientifically founded solution with no known side effects.
CholBiome® combines three targeted ingredients, Monacolin K from red yeast rice, Vitamin B3 (niacin) and Lactobacillus plantarum LPLDL® to deliver tangible health benefits.
Monacolin K from red yeast rice contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels by inhibiting the synthesis of cholesterol by the liver. It is a natural product obtained via the fermentation of rice by the yeast Monascus purpureus, a Chinese traditional remedy for high cholesterol.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) helps to maintain a normal energy-yielding metabolism by modulating the degradation of fats in the cell.
Lactobacillus plantarum LPLDL® is a naturally occurring bacterium which harnesses the microbiome-liver axis to impact positively upon the gut microbiome. Its outstanding ability to modulate bile acid metabolism is beneficial for heart health factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as other processes from liver function to glucose regulation and vitamin metabolism.
Rigorous independent studies have shown LPLDL® to:
- Lower total cholesterol by up to 36.7%
- Lower LDL cholesterol by up to 13.9%
- Increase HDL cholesterol by up to 6.5%
- Lower systolic blood pressure by 5.1%
- Be completely safe and well tolerated
About Cholesterol & Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a global leading cause of death.
Cholesterol is necessary to build cells and hormones, but excessive amounts are associated with an increased risk of CVD. Of the two main forms of cholesterol, LDL (low density lipoprotein) is responsible for artery clogging, which can lead to CVD, while HDL (high density lipoprotein) helps to clear cholesterol from the blood. It is therefore important not only to keep healthy levels of total cholesterol, but also a good ratio of HDL vs. LDL.
Limiting dietary intake of cholesterol is important. However, as the liver naturally produces a significant amount of cholesterol and complete eradication in food is impossible, additional measures are recommended. CholBiome® is an ideal solution.
