Policosanol is a plant product derived from rice bran or sugar cane and has
demonstrated in multiple clinical studies to safely reduce LDL (“bad”)
cholesterol while significantly raising HDL (“good”) cholesterol. In addition it
can be used to improve pain free walking distance for people with intermittent
claudication (hardening of the arteries). It also may improve the health of
patients with coronary heart disease. Policosanol is comprised of long chain
fatty acids octacosanol, hexacosanol, tricontanol, tetracosanol, and
At the University of Bonn, Germany, a review of the scientific studies was
reviewed. At doses of 10 to 20 mg/day, policosanol lowered total cholesterol by
17 to 21 percent, LDL cholesterol was reduced 21 to 19 percent, and HDL
cholesterol was raised 8 to 15 percent. In a six-month study, 10 mg of
policosanol per day reduced total cholesterol by 16 percent, LDL cholesterol by
24 percent, and increased HDL cholesterol by 29 percent. Policosanol has also
been compared with drugs. For example, in a trial involving 113 patients, 59
patients received 10 mg per day of policosanol with a low cholesterol diet,
while 54 patients were given bezafibrate 400 mg per day while on a low
cholesterol diet for eight weeks. In policosanol treated subjects, LDL
cholesterol fell by 18 percent, triglycerides by 15 percent, while in the drug
group LDL fell 11 percent and triglycerides by 6 percent.
To test the effects with coronary heart disease (CHD) and high cholesterol, a 23
patient double blind study was conducted. Electrocardiogram (ECG) and serum
blood samples were followed for 14 months. The policosanol group showed a
reduction of total and LDL cholesterol, and 5 out of 12 patients exhibited a
tendency to improve their CHD.
Sytrinol® is a patented formula derived from citrus and palm fruit extracts,
designed to promote healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels. In addition
this ingredient has anti-inflammatory effects. Clinical studies have
demonstrated that Sytrinol reduces total cholesterol by up to 30 percent,
reduces LDL cholesterol levels up to 27 percent, and triglyceride levels by 34
percent, within four to twelve weeks; it also has a positive impact on
apoprotein B and apoprotein A1 levels.
Results from the first trial of sixty subjects show that treatment with 300 mg
of Sytrinol per day, provided in two tablets of Polilipid, reduced total
cholesterol by 25 percent, LDL cholesterol by 19 percent, and triglyceride
levels by 24 percent. In the second trial, with ten subjects total cholesterol
and LDL was reduced by 20 percent and 22 percent respectively. Apolipoprotein B
(structural component of LDL) decreased by 21 percent, and triglycerides
decreased by 28 percent. The first twelve weeks of a long terms study have been
completed. Compared to a placebo, Sytrinol subjects saw decrease of total
cholesterol by 30 percent, LDL by 27 percent, and triglycerides by 34 percent.
In addition HDL levels increased by 4 percent.
Sytrinol was developed on twelve years of research that include 250 in vitro, in
vivo, and clinical studies. It contains polymethoxylated flavones (PMF) shown to
decrease apoprotein B, needed for the structural synthesis of LDL cholesterol;
tangeretin and nobiletin which decrease a liver enzyme (diacylglycerol
acetyltransferase) needed for endogenous synthesis of triglycerides, and
tocotrienols which inhibit HMG COa, a liver enzyme responsible for endogenous
synthesis of cholesterol.
