Maintaining cardiovascular well-being is essential to living a full and active life. A healthy lifestyle—including a balanced diet‚ regular exercise‚ rest‚ and managing stress—all play roles in making sure that your heart and blood vessels stay healthy. However‚ there are supplements that may provide additional assistance.
Sugar cane‚ beeswax‚ and wheat germ naturally contain a mix of long-chain fatty alcohols in their wax; the most common are octacosanol and triacontanol‚ although it also contains several other types. This natural blend is known as policosanol. Pure Encapsulations’ Policosanol 20 mg may promote cardiovascular health in several ways‚ which might be due to the fact that it can support good platelet function and lipid metabolism while providing antioxidant protection. The platelets are responsible for managing blood clotting; they can discourage excessive bleeding from wounds‚ while still allowing sufficient blood flow.
Meanwhile‚ lipid metabolism is the process that lets your body digest absorb the dietary fats you consume. Policosanol 20 mg may support triglyceride and fatty acid metabolism‚ which may be impaired due to certain factors. At the same time‚ it might moderate the activity of HMG-CoA reductase‚ the metabolic pathway that produces substances such as cholesterol. Finally‚ policosanol can further support heart health as an antioxidant that works to fight off free radical molecules that can cause potential harm to cells throughout the body.
Policosanol 20 mg may be well-tolerated by the digestive tract‚ meaning that this supplement may be less likely to cause discomfort when you take it.
Take one or two capsules per day‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Policosanol 20 mg by Pure Encapsulations should last from two to four months.
