Policosanol, which is derived from rice bran wax, provides powerful cholesterol support. Clinical research has shown that doses of 10 to 20 mg of policosanol can lower total cholesterol by 17% to 21% and LDL cholesterol by 21%-29% and raises HDL cholesterol by 8% to15%. Policosanol can be an alternative to statin drugs, and can be used safely in diabetic and elderly patients.
