LipidShield

Promote a healthy heart and reduce cholesterol.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

LipidShield is a cholesterol-lowering supplement containing a variety of natural ingredients which are supposed to increase your HDL, or the good cholesterol, without many of the side effects of prescription cholesterol-lowering medications.

LipidShield contains plant sterols and plant stanols, which are components in plants and animals that are necessary for cellular growth. Since cholesterol is a sterol produced by humans, the plant sterols and stanols found in LipidShield may work to reduce cholesterol absorption by competing with cholesterol. When less dietary cholesterol is absorbed, less cholesterol is returned to the liver and through this process LDL, or the bad cholesterol, is also decreased.

LipidShield contains other components that are used by other systems of medicine to reduce cholesterol. Some of these components are Guggul, a natural cholesterol-lowering agent used in Indian medicine and red rice yeast, which is also used in Chinese medicine to reduce cholesterol.

LipidShield is designed to target many causes of elevated cholesterol offering a more complete and effective alternative to prescribed pharmaceuticals.

PRO
  • LipidShield is currently undergoing clinical trials to ensure its efficacy to lower cholesterol
  • Uses standards in a FDA inspected and registered facility guaranteeing safety, effectiveness, and purity
CON
  • Not approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration
  • LipidShield is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease
