After taking Cholesterol Pro for 3 months, starting with 2 pills twice a day, then going down to 1 pill in morning & 1 in evening, got lipids checked yesterday.
Total cholesterol reduced from 237 to 225
HDL (good cholesterol) increased from 60 to 64
Triglycerides increased from 142 to 150
LDL (bad cholesterol) decreased from 150 to 133
Chol/HDL ratio decreased from 4 to 3.5
Non HDL (bad cholesterol) decreased from 177 to 161
To summarize, all the numbers were improved, except the triglycerides, which is a bit concerning. I'm not quite sure what the reason is for the triglyceride elevation.
However, overall, I believe it is worthwhile for me to continue with this product
I am taking it as replacement of the Atorvastatin 40mg because it has bas side effects, it does not have side effects and it is do works and lowered the bad numbers significantly.
The only bad thing about it is the price going higher than before, I guess because of the high demand.
I use to take bergamot regularly when I lived in the US. I stopped because it was expensive where I am. Fortunately Iherb now ships free to me. I found Now's Cholesterol Pro by accident and was pleasantly surprised it contained bergamot. It also has pine phytosterol in it. Another good ingredient for one's heart. Now makes great affordable products. I have been taking their products for decades. I feel fortunate they exist.
Just got my lipid profile test back. I do not eat lots of fried foods, but I still mostly eat what I want. This supplement is key to reducing cholesterol without statin drugs.
This product taking 2 tabs am and 2 tabs pm dropped my cholesterol over 110 points.
My total cholesterol was 335 , now it is -197.
My LDL was 235 , Now is 139.
This product really works. It took me awhile to get my lipid profile done, but I am so glad I did.
One does not need a statin drug, plus they do not work as well as this supplement.
First time trying out this product. I bought this a month ago because my cholesterol went high. so far so good. I usually have headache and pain in my legs as a symptoms when my cholesterol is high. but after taking this twice a day, so far I don't have it anymore
update: second purchase. so far dont see any significant effect. my total cholesterol is slightly decreased tho
Nice product, this saves me from that Atorvastatin Calcium, difficult sleeping, woozy head and confused thought, but Cholesterol Pro after 2 weeks, noticed no side effect, and seems to be working, I will return to update this review in few months when my new test is done, to compare numbers and see how much I was able to reduce compared to what I currently hold now....please stay tuned....I will be back..."Astalavista"!
This is a fine product. I have yet to get a blood test since taking this, but I have felt much better. I took this in-addition to fenugreek seeds and felt no bad reaction. I look forward to getting my blood checked to check my levels.
