LIPIBOR 30 caps
Lipibor is a proprietary blend of natural ingredients, scientifically
developed to lower blood cholesterol. It contains high quality
standardized extracts of Policosanol, Beta-glucan and Niacin. Each
ingredient plays an integral role in cholesterol management and
together having complimentary and synergistic effects.
Actions and Pharmacology
Policosanol works by blocking the body’s synthesis of cholesterol. It
reduces total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), and increases HDL
(good cholesterol). It also appears to inhibit the oxidation of LDL.
Oxidized LDL creates a chronic inflammatory response that promotes
destruction of blood vessels. Policosanol has a direct effect on the liver
cells and cholesterol metabolism. It helps binding LDL to receptors,
transporting LDL to the liver and facilitating its break down. It inhibits
excessive platelet aggregation. However, its effects on triglyceride are
Niacin has been proven to improve the lipoprotein profile. It is
effective at reducing total cholesterol, LDL, and triglyceride levels,
while at the same time raising HDL levels. It lowers cholesterol and
triglyceride by blocking their excess production by liver. It has
synergistic effect with statins in lowering cholesterol. Niacin inhibits
lipoprotein lipids, decreases fatty acid transfer to the liver, decreases
hepatic triglyceride synthesis and VLDL synthesis, and facilitates the
excretion. Niacin stimulates HDL synthesis.
Clinical trial shows that Niacin decreases VLDL and triglyceride by 35%
to 40% within days, increases HDL by 10% to 14%, and decreases
LDL by 20% to 30% within weeks.
Beta glucan has been found to lower total cholesterol levels as well as
to increase levels of HDL-cholesterol. The mechanism of the HDLelevation activity is unknown. Also, it is not well understood how beta
glucan lowers total cholesterol levels. It is thought that the
cholesterol-lowering effect of beta glucan may be accounted for, in
large part by, its promotion of the excretion of bile acids.
Beta glucan appears to be a non-specific immune enhancer via its
ability, among other possible mechanisms, to activate macrophages. It
may have some anti-carcinogenic, anti-atherosclerotic and anti-inflammatory effects. It may enhance wounds healing and promote
skin health in some circumstances.
The three ingredients of Lipibor have synergistic and complementary
effect in relation to lowering total cholesterol, LDL, VLDL, and
triglycerides while at the same time increasing HDL. In addition,
Lipibor is a platelet anti-aggregant and immunomodulator.
Indications and Usage
Lipibor is indicated as a supportive measure to dietary and lifestyle
recommendations to reduce elevated cholesterol levels. Lipibor lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol and increases HDL (good)
cholesterol and helps prevent atherosclerosis.
It may reduce platelet aggregation in both healthy and
hypercholesterolemic individuals, which may be of beneficial to
individuals with intermittent claudication.
