Safely managing blood lipid levels can be a challenge for people as they get older. Yet an increasing number of doctors recognize the critical need to protect the arterial wall against low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and inflammatory insults.
For those who want to maintain healthful levels of lipids in the blood, Advanced Lipid Control contains two powerful nutrients that help protect key aspects of cardiovascular function. This special formula supports healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range and safeguards vascular and heart health while providing excellent antioxidant protection.
Theaflavin Extracts From Black Tea
A staple beverage in many cultures for millennia, black tea contains theaflavins, beneficial flavonoids found naturally in its dried leaves. Advanced Lipid Control contains theaflavins, which scientists have discovered provide multiple benefits for arterial health. As well as supporting healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range,65 theaflavins have been shown in human studies to protect against LDL oxidation and favorably affect endothelial function,66 thus helping to maintain a healthy circulation.
Scientists have also found that black tea flavo-noids possess strong antioxidant properties, which can help mitigate oxidative damage to cells and tissues from free radicals.67 In addition, theaflavins have been found to be helpful in regulating key inflammatory mediators in the body, thus helping to preserve endothelial integrity.68,69
Coronary-Protective Effects of Ancient Indian Berry
Another ingredient in Advanced Lipid Control is AmlaMax®, a patented extract of Indian gooseberry. It contains a diverse blend of phenolic compounds that have been clinically shown to safely help maintain healthy levels of all three key blood lipids70 — LDL, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and triglycerides — as well as markers of inflammation such as C-reactive protein. Studies have also shown that this plant extract helps to induce rapid and significant improvement in endothelial function.71-74
