Dr. Costa strongly suggests this vegan ingredient formulation for naturally assisted improvements in cholesterol levels. Our Cholesterol Control formulation is a unique mixture combining the strength of Guggul Extract, Cayenne Pepper, Garlic Bulb, and a powerful Plant Sterol Complex. Guggul extract is known to exert an anti-cholesterolemic effect (lowers blood cholesterol levels) and is also an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant compound. The synergy between the various herbal ingredients in this cholesterol fighting complex works to lower bad cholesterol over the duration of 6-12 weeks. Dr. Costa emphasizes the importance of consistently taking 2 vegetable capsules daily with a full glass of water after consuming food.
