Product Description

NOW® Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFA) derived from sugar cane, a superior source of these natural plant waxes. Non-clinical studies have shown that the fatty alcohol constituents in Policosanol possess considerable antioxidant activity, can protect serum lipids against free radical attack and support healthy immune function. Policosanol can support cardiovascular health through these and other mechanisms.*

I was looking for a reasonably priced cardiac health supplement.
Susan
When my dad was diagnosed with very high cholesterol, the dr. wanted him on statins, but our research showed all the dangers associated with them.
rose
You maybe think that with diet alone my problem was solved but wrong, because I had tried dieting before but it did not work.

My ongoing problem has been low HDL (good) and marginal total cholesterol. I like life too much to take prescription statins! I take one policosanol daily along with fish oil, flax oil, and red wine (one glass daily). Since adding the policosanol to my regimine, my total cholestoral has dropped 10 points to 153, and more significant at the same time my HDL has raised 20 points to 55. That is a very significant ratio change. My cardiologist was very happy with the numbers but still offered to put me on Crestor???

I am unable to take Statin drugs to lower LDL Cholesterol, due to the Mussel pain & damage that it causes me.
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.

My mom has had incredible results with this product in regards to her cholesterol, and very quickly too. Statin drugs do more harm than good, when there is this natural solution, that does not cost an arm and a leg! I highly recommend to anyone struggling with cholesterol and not buying into the 'conventional' solutions. Came back to buy more for family and friends.

I bought it on the recommendation of a friend who had high cholesterol problems. I used it for a month and I did a cholesterol test to see if the product had some effect, and it did indeed. The index of cholesterol was 215 and dropped to 195. Of course I made adjustments to my diet, not extremely, am a fan of white meat and fish and just added vegetables. You maybe think that with diet alone my problem was solved but wrong, because I had tried dieting before but it did not work. As always, I recommend that before trying any product consult with your doctor :-)

Works great. Bought it after reading the 4 hour body and I've seen results from using this stuff daily. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to lose weight.

Although the responsibility is ultimately mine, I feel somewhat deceived by the labeling -- or lack thereof -- on this product.

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.

NOW is a reputable company. Policosanol is a natural and safe product. It is inexpensive and has helped a lot of people lower their cholesterol and triglycerides. I think it is a good choice to try if you want to avoid the muscle weakness and liver damage which can result from taking prescription statin pills.

I originally took Policosanol as recommended by my MD doctor to try to lower my cholesterol and triglycerides. It didn't help me at all. Changing my food diet did the job!

My husband, who exercises strenuously 5 days a week and eats the same foods I eat (we are the same blood type and therefore follow the same diet plan), has been taking statin drugs to keep his cholesterol low and finally realized that those drugs are so dangerous that it is much better to live with high cholesterol!!! So we decided to try the policosanol for him. After taking it for around 3 weeks he had his regular 6 month lab work and his total cholesterol and LDL are both high again. His triglycerides are still well within normal range. So it looks like this product isn't helping my husband either. Perhaps, like a lot of other natural products, it takes longer than a few weeks to work?
