Policosanol (Sugar Cane) Cholesterol Support Supplements - Octacosanol / Side Effects
The main ingredient is octacosanol. Octacosanol is an alcohol found in the
waxy film that plants have over their leaves and fruit. The leaves and rinds
of citrus fruits contain octacosanol, and so does wheat germ oil. Caviar contains high amounts of octacosanol.
Fatty alcohols are converted to fatty acids, and vice-versa. The beneficial fatty acids in fish oil, for example, are made from octacosanol and other long chain fatty alcohols. Fatty alcohols are required for important bio-substances in the body.
Suggested Use: 2 tablets, in the evening, for the first three months. Thereafter, 1-2 tablets daily. Source Naturals recommends that a minimum of 15 mg of coQ10 be taken daily per tablet of policosanol. Some research suggests that coQ10 levels in the body may be lowered by compounds that work on the same metabolic pathway as policosanol.
