Lower Cholesterol Naturally-Shaklee Cholesterol Reduction Complex

The National Institute of Health (NIH) recommends ingesting 2,000 mg of plant sterols and stanols daily. What are they and why are they important? Sterols and stanols are found naturally in plants and are structurally similar to cholesterol. Because of these similarities they compete with cholesterol for absorption in the intestines where they bind to receptors in the intestine leaving the cholesterol behind. The result being less cholesterol absorbed by the body and less in the blood stream. Clinically proven in over 80 clinical studies to lower LDL, bad cholesterol, a 10% reduction of which equates to a 10%-20% decrease in the risk for heart disease. This is how it works:

Why is this important and who should take Cholesterol Reduction Complex? First of all high cholesterol is one of the major controllable factors for coronary heart disease. Cholesterol plays an important role in our bodies as a type of fat that helps maintain cell membrane structure and hormone production. When there is too much cholesterol and it gets into the blood stream, the risk of developing heart disease increases. If you are male, older in age, a woman experiencing menopause, have a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol or have a family history of high cholesterol your chances of developing a problem with high cholesterol are greater.

One in three adults in the U.S. has high cholesterol. This can affect anyone at any age and reduce heart health and cardiovascular function over time in turn increasing the risk of developing heart disease. Some people are predisposed to high cholesterol as the liver produces more than necessary. Others ingest too much cholesterol in the foods they eat on a regular basis like bacon, hot dogs, sausage, pizza (with pepperoni), hamburgers, and steak. I am definitely not opposed to any of these delicious foods. None of us should be as long as we understand limited portions and incorporating a well rounded meal plan. What you put into your body directly effects how it performs. Too much of anything is never good.

You can fight this absorption of cholesterol naturally by decreasing your intake of saturated fat to less than 7% of your total daily calories, decreasing your dietary cholesterol intake to less than 200 mg per day, add at least 20-30 minutes of exercise to your daily routine, add 5-10 g of soluble fiber to your diet each day, lose 10 pounds if you are overweight and add 2,000 mg of plant sterols and stanols to your diet each day. To get this amount of plant sterols and stanols in your diet you would have to eat 6.5 cups of soybeans, 59 oranges, 47.5 cucumbers or take Shaklee’s Cholesterol Reduction Complex.

Cholesterol Reduction Complex lowers cholesterol naturally, has no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, or preservatives added, is gluten free and there have been no side effects observed with intakes of 2,000 mg of plant sterols and stanols which the National Institute of Health recommends.

Doctors, here is a letter for you.

Here is a letter from Dr McManus, Chair, Medical Affairs & Health Sciences, concerning the new Cholesterol Reduction Complex. Can you imagine? She even included her personal email & phone number, in case you had questions!

Dear Doctors,
Please allow me to introduce a new dietary supplement from Shaklee Corporation that provides a natural
approach to lowering LDL cholesterol. Shaklee Cholesterol Reduction Complex delivers 2,000 mg of a
combination of sterols and stanols, an efficacious intake level recommended by the National Institutes of
Health Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC), Your Guide to Lowering Your Cholesterol with TLC
The TLC recommendations are a comprehensive approach to reducing elevated LDL cholesterol levels for
the purpose of reducing the risk of heart disease. The essential components
. Reducing the dietary intake of LDL-raising dietary factors (saturated fats, trans fats, and dietary
. Increasing the intake of LDL-lowering dietary factors (consuming 10-25 g of soluble fiber and
adding 2,000 mg per day of sterols/stanols)
. Losing weight and increasing exercise
Plant sterols and stanols are found in the cell walls of plants and occur in very small amounts in plants,
fruits, vegetables, seeds, and grains. Supplementing the diet with sterols and stanols was shown to
significantly lower LDL cholesterol in a recent meta-analysis of 84 studies (
content/full/139/2/271). This effect has been shown in as little as three to four weeks. Furthermore,
another meta-analysis of eight studies shows that intake of sterols and stanols can further reduce
cholesterol levels even in those already using statins (
When used as directed, Cholesterol Reduction Complex provides 2,000 mg of sterols and stanols daily,
which qualifies for the FDA-approved health claim for lowering cholesterol levels for the purpose of helping
to reduce the risk of heart disease.*
Shaklee has a long history in the nutritional supplement industry, beginning when our founder, Dr. Shaklee,
first sold a multivitamin in 1915. Shaklee Corporation was founded in 1956 and today is the number one
natural nutrition company in the U.S. We are committed to creating products that are relevant to people's
health needs-and there continue to be major issues in our country due to people's diets, obesity, and
elevated lipid levels leading to the spiraling health costs associated with cardiovascular disease.
Thank you for your time and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
