It says on the front, "Double Strength Policosanol, 20 mgs, from Sugar Cane".
On the back of the bottle, in tiny, tiny print, I find out that it also contains 100 mgs of artichoke extract, 100 mgs of milk thistle, 50 mgs of Alpha Lipoic Acid, and 30 mgs of Grape Seed Extract.
I chose this product because I thought it was Poicosanol from sugar cane, as used in the studies, and similar to Now's 10mg product, which doesn't contain these other ingredients -- none of which I can tolerate due to salicylate intolerance.
"Now" has subsequently changed their new labels, to accentuate the fact that this is a complex, not a single ingredient product. I just wish they had been a little more up front about it in the first place. As it is, it should be called a Policosanol Complex.
This Policosanol (made from sugar cane) was recommended to me by a friend who did a lot of research on it and tried other types to no avail. When she used this one her total cholesterol came down to good levels on all types.
I started taking it 3 weeks before my test for LDL level and it had come down to an acceptable number. I will be having my total cholesterol tested in June and can't wait to see my Dr's smile.....He is an MD that is open to alternatives to drugs.
I don't know if it works for everyone, but I have bought some for 2 of my friends that cannot tolerate the Statin drugs, and I am waiting to hear how it worked for them.
I suggest you try it.
No side effects.

I am very pleased with NOW Foods Policosanol @ 20 mg. It is nice to find Policosanol in the correct dosage of 20 mg capsules. I only wish it was also a Subscribe & Save item!! Read morePublished 15 days ago by Satisfied Customer
This product seems to have lowered my cholesterol. I say seems because the cholesterol test and your bodies levels vary wildly. Read morePublished 17 days ago by D. Senne
This is my second time purchasing, but this time, 2 packs instead of one.
Caps are easy to swallow and I've been purchasing other supplements from NOW Foods several time.
