What is Policosanol?

Policosanol is produced from a collection of fatty alcohols. Consisting of several long carbon chain alcohols, policosanol is found naturally in beeswax and various plant waxes. It was discovered by Cuban scientists who were the first to extract policosanol from sugar cane. Since their work in the 1990s, policosanol has been the subject of numerous scientific studies due to its effect on cholesterol synthesis, an effect which has led to its development as a dietary supplement for therapeutic purposes.

What are the Effects of Policosanol in Cholesterol?

Frequently highlighted for its risks to health, cholesterol is a lipid which has been the subject of extensive study in recent years. The distinction is often made between 'good' and 'bad' forms of cholesterol; these are actually cholesterol transporters. Good cholesterol is attached to high-density lipoproteins (HDL), enables cholesterol to be transported from the blood to the liver where it is eliminated. Bad cholesterol is attached to low-density lipoproteins (LDL), that transports cholesterol to the blood. We use the term 'bad' cholesterol because when it accumulates in the blood, it becomes a danger to health.

Scientists are thus focusing on finding ways of reducing bad, LDL-cholesterol levels in order to prevent the development of health complications like hypercholesterolemia. A diagnosis of hypercholesterolemia is made when blood cholesterol levels become abnormally high. This condition leads to the formation of cholesterol plaques in the blood which, as they build up on artery walls, provoke changes to the arteries, causing them to harden. This is called atherosclerosis, the development of which can result in obstruction – and even rupture – of the arteries. Without adequate treatment, this process can initiate cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) or stroke. In this context, policosanol has been identified by several scientific studies as a natural remedy against cholesterol.

Preventing the development of cardiovascular problems by combating hypercholesterolemia has become a public health priority. This has led to the development of certain anti-cholesterol treatments such as statins.

Nevertheless, several research teams are now looking at natural alternatives that are free from side-effects and contraindications. With its positive effect on cholesterol, policosanol could soon be seen as a new and natural option for reducing cholesterol. Available in dietary supplement form, policosanol is currently used to lower total cholesterol levels.

What Benefits are Associated with Policosanol?

Policosanol presents several benefits:

  • It works primarily by inhibiting cholesterol production in the liver.
  • Studies suggest it may increase the breakdown of bad cholesterol.
  • It may offer significant advantages for preventing or treating hypercholesterolamia.

You can benefit from its effects by taking policosanol supplements in the form of vegetarian capsules, optimally formulated to contain 10 mg of policosanol per capsule. For maximum efficacy, a dose of one to two capsules a day is recommended though this dose can be adapted according to your needs and the advice of your therapist.
