Life Extension Advanced Lipid Control is clinically shown to support healthy levels of cholesterol, reduce inflammation in the arterial wall, and provide excellent antioxidant protection. Contains two key components to cardiovascular health; Capros amla and theaflavins.
The ingredients in Advanced Lipid Control (black tea and Indian gooseberry) are designed to help support healthy blood lipid levels. Black tea theaflavins and flavonoids help manage atherosclerosis,7 aids in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels,1 and supporting endothelial operations resulting in healthy circulation and integrity,2,4,5 and helps control oxidative damage.3 A special extract of Indian gooseberry (Capros amla) contains beneficial tannins that may improve endothelial actions and supports low density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL), and triglycerides.6
In one human test, patients with both normal and high levels of serum cholesterol levels showed a reduction after taking Indian gooseberry. After the supplementation was stopped, the cholesterol levels rose again.8 A different human trial showed a significant reduction in total cholesterol, LDL (the “bad” cholesterol), and tyiglycerides, and there was a significant increase in HDL (the “good” cholesterol)9 In other human trials, black tea supplementation showed significant reductions in LDL and total cholesterol in patients with elevated levels.10,11 Combined into an easy-to-use vegetarian capsule, Life Extension Advanced Lipid Control gives you a powerful weapon for defense against high cholesterol.
