There is a strong association between raised homocysteine levels and an increase in CVD. Raised homocysteine is linked to the deficiency of the B vitamins, Folic acid and B12.
FDA approved statement: A daily intake of at least 1.3g of plant sterol esters, in two meals, may reduce the risk of heart disease when part of a diet low in saturated fat an cholesterol.
Studies have also found that a daily consumption of at least 1.3g of plant sterols consistently lower total and LDL cholesterol by between 5-20%. They do this by inhibiting the absorption of both dietary and endogenous derived cholesterol from the intestines.
Fish oils reduce triglycerides and VLDL and raise HDL cholesterol. They also reduce inflammation and regulate the heart beat.
CoQ10 is a powerful scavenger of both aqueous and lipophilic free radicals in the LDL peptide and it is the first line of defense in preventing ?oxidation? of LDL proteins. Oxidized LDL is the prime candidate for causing atherosclerosis.
