What’s inside Advanced Cholesterol Support and how each ingredient works:
Berberis Extract 95%
Impressive Health Benefits of Berberine
Berberis Vulgaris Extract is rich in Berberine, an ingredient with several studies to prove its impressive benefits for health.
Studies have shown that it acts as a powerful antioxidant, combating cell damage caused by reactive molecules called free radicals.
Also, berberine may help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels, slow the progression of certain cancer cells, fight infections, and have anti-inflammatory effects.
It has been shown to have powerful effects on many different biological systems.
It is one of the few supplements shown to be as effective as a pharmaceutical drug.
One of the main actions of berberine is to activate an enzyme inside cells called AMP-activated protein kinase
This enzyme is sometimes referred to as a “metabolic master switch”
It is found in the cells of various organs, including the brain, muscle, kidney, heart and liver. This enzyme plays a major role in regulating metabolism
It Causes a Major Reduction in Blood Sugar Levels
Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease that has become incredibly common in recent decades, causing millions of deaths every year.
It is characterized by elevated blood sugar (glucose) levels, either caused by insulin resistance or lack of insulin.
Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage the body’s tissues and organs, leading to various health problems and a shortened lifespan.
Many studies show that berberine can significantly reduce blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes
In fact, its effectiveness is comparable to the popular diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage)
It seems to work via multiple different mechanisms
- Cholesterol-lowering Effect
- Decreases insulin resistance, making the blood sugar lowering hormone insulin more effective.
- Increases glycolysis, helping the body break down sugars inside cells.
- Decrease sugar production in the liver.
- Slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in the gut.
- Increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut
Berberine may also be effective as a weight loss supplement.
So far, two studies have examined the effects on body weight.
In a 12-week study in obese individuals, 500 mg taken three times per day caused about 5 pounds of weight loss, on average. The participants also lost 3.6% of their body fat
Cinnamon 15:1 Extract
Cinnamon can help weight loss in many ways. For instance, research says that cinnamon supplementation can result in a significant improvement in all components of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic comprises multiple conditions existing simultaneously, like insulin resistance, high blood pressure, increased coagulation risk and abnormal cholesterol levels. Many of these individuals are also obese or overweight.
Cinnamon acts in multiple ways to keep weight off. For one thing, it is a well-known anti-diabetic spice. It can help lower and maintain blood sugar levels. Also, it helps improve cell sensitivity to the action of the hormone insulin, which transports glucose from the blood into the cell to be used as energy.
Cinnamon can also aid in blocking the activity of many digestive enzymes, thus slowing the absorption of sugar from the blood after eating a high-carbohydrate meal. Aside from diabetes, cinnamon has shown promise in promoting weight loss.
Cinnamon is high in fiber. The spice can therefore help reduce food cravings by promoting a feeling of satiety and fullness. Cinnamon can boost metabolism, since the body uses more energy to process the spice than it does for other foods.
Cinnamon may have an insulin-like action in the body, which is seen in the way sugar is broken down in the body. Cinnamon can also improve body metabolism, targeting the fat deposited in the abdominal area.

Phytosterol Complex 95%
Beta-sitosterol might help reduce cholesterol levels by limiting the amount of cholesterol that is able to enter the body. It can also help reduce swelling in the prostate and other tissues. People most commonly use beta-sitosterol for lowering cholesterol levels and improving symptoms of an enlarged prostate (BPH).
Phytosterols are often added to foods and supplements to enhance heart health. These compounds are known to lower cholesterol levels by reducing cholesterol absorption.
Grape Seed Extract 95%
Grape seed extract may help with a type of poor circulation (chronic venous insufficiency) and high cholesterol. Grape seed extract also reduces swelling caused by injury and helps with eye disease related to diabetes. Many people are interested in grape seed extract because it contains antioxidants

Pine Bark Etract 95%
High Proanthocyanidins Pycnogenol
Proanthocyanidins may protect the heart and cardiovascular system. They may work as antioxidants and block nitrosamines from forming. They may protect healthy cells from their effects
Supplementation with a pine bark extract rich in polyphenols increases plasma antioxidant capacity and alters the plasma lipoprotein profile
Pycnogenol (PYC), an extract of French maritime pine bark (Pinus pinaster), is a potent antioxidant with potential health benefits. Its bioavailabilty has previously been shown by urinary excretion studies of constituents and metabolites of PYC. The aim of this study was to test the effect of PYC supplementation on measures of oxidative stress and the lipid profile in humans. Twenty-five healthy subjects received PYC (150 mg/d) for 6 wk. Fasting blood was collected at baseline, after 3 and 6 wk of supplementation, and again after a 4-wk washout period. After 6 wk of supplementation with PYC, a significant increase in plasma polyphenol levels was detectable, which was reversed after the 4-wk washout phase. The antioxidant effect of PYC was demonstrated by a significant increase in oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) in plasma throughout the supplementation period (P < 0.05). The ORAC value returned to baseline after the 4-wk washout period. Moreover, in addition to its antioxidant effects, PYC significantly reduced LDL-cholesterol levels and increased HDL-cholesterol levels in plasma of two-thirds of the subjects. While the LDL changes reversed during washout, the HDL increase did not. There was no significant difference in LDL oxidizability or plasma lipid peroxides following PYC supplementation. Hence, following oral supplementation in humans, PYC significantly increases antioxidant capacity of plasma, as determined by ORAC, and exerts favorable effects on the lipid profile.
Policosanol seems to decrease cholesterol production in the liver and to increase the breakdown of LDL (low-density lipoprotein or “bad”) cholesterol. It might also help HDL (high-density lipoprotein or “good”) cholesterol work better. Policosanol also decreases the stickiness of cells in the blood known as platelets
Policosanol consists of eight specific long-chain alcohols, ranging in length from 24 to 34 carbon atoms. Octacosanol is the most abundant alcohol in policosanol, which accounts for about 63 percent of this mixture. Triacontanol comprises about 13 percent of policosanol, and hexacosanol makes up another six percent. The remaining alcohols in policosanol include dotriacontanol, heptacocosanol, nonacosanol, tetracosanol and tetratriacontanol.
Human and animal studies both show that policosanol may significantly lower the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood and increase the level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. The exact mechanisms of these actions are not well-understood, although it appears that policosanol inhibits the production of cholesterol in the liver. Policosanol also increases the uptake, binding and degradation of LDL within a cell’s endoplasmic reticulum, an effect that is independent of its actions in the liver. The bioavailability of policosanol is limited, and additional studies are needed to determine if policosanol is active in the liver.
Multiple studies also show that policosanol helps support the body’s ability to reduce the production of platelets. The primary mechanism of this action is the inhibition of thromboxane A2 production, although policosanol may also increase the production of prostacycline. Large doses of policosanol may also inhibit the aggregation of platelets caused by collagen and arachidonic acid.
Uses of Policosanol
Policosanol is used in health supplements to help with cholesterol level management. It may also be beneficial for relieving leg discomfort and artery health support
Black Pepper Extract (Bioperine) 95%:
Makes all other ingredient work better!! This what “natural bioavailability enhancer” means.
Black Pepper Extract Benefits:
- Cholesterol-lowering Effect
- High Antioxidant Effect
- Improves brain Function
- Improves Memory
- Improves Blood Sugar Control
- Boosts Absorption of Nutrients
- Improves Gut Health
- Reduces Appetite
WHAT IS IT AND WHY IS IT IN SPORTS NUTRITION PRODUCTS?
Bioperine is a plant extract derived from two types of pepper plants, namely, long pepper (Piper longum) and black pepper (Piper negrum). The natural chemical compound is a patented product made from the standardized piperine extract from the above mentioned pepper species. BioPerine® from Sabinsa (East Windsor, NJ) is a patented standardized extract from black pepper, containing not less than 95 percent piperine.
Pharmacological studies have shown that piperine reduces inflammation and pain, possesses anticonvulsant and antiulcer activity, protects the liver, has deleterious and antioxidant activity. Results from previous studies demonstrated that piperine showed anxiolytic and antidepressant like activity. Piperine also inhibited monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity, and increased the levels of noradrenaline and serotonin in some regions of the mouse brain.
All of these characteristics make it perfect for the dieting male or female, but more importantly, it is a clinically proven bio availability enhancer for nutrients. It shows increased blood supply to the GI tract, increased emulsifying content of the gut and increased active nutrient transport.
According to the Merck Manuals, bioavailability is the extent and rate within which an active drug enters systemic circulation after passing through the first-pass metabolism sites, namely, the intestinal wall and liver. Bioperine has been shown to boost the bioavailability of nutrients, namely beta-carotene, vitamin B, B6, vitamin C, selenium, and co-enzyme Q10, and other ingredients found in various supplements — including male enhancement supplements.
According to research conducted by the manufacturer, bioperine substantially increases the absorption of selenium (30%), beta carotene (60%), vitamin B6 (140-250%) as well as coenzyme Q10. So if your fat burner does not contain bioperine, it should as its clinically been found to enhance the active transport of nutrients and based on a study, it enhances the effect of caffeine.
Some studies also show that taking vitamin E supplements may reduce LDL and triglyceride levels in people with metabolic syndrome — a cluster of conditions, including high blood fat levels, that increases the risk of heart disease and other health conditions.
Vitamin E benefits:
- Reduces Oxidative Stress
- Reduces Heart-disease risk factors
- Reduces Cholesterol & Triglycerides
- Helps People with Fat Liver Disease
- Improves Lung Function
- Improves Skin Health
- Improves Cognitive Health
- Improves Eye Health
- Improves Immunity
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin, a B vitamin, has long been used to increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol — the “good” cholesterol that helps remove low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the “bad” cholesterol from your bloodstream
Niacin is a B-vitamin. When taken as a prescription in larger doses, it can help lower cholesterol and other fats in your blood.
- Improves blood fat levelsNiacin may help to improve your blood fat levels by:
- increasing your HDL (good) cholesterol
- reducing your LDL (bad) LDL cholesterol
- reducing your triglyceride levels
- Reduces blood pressure
- May help treat type 1 diabetesType 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which your body attacks and destroys insulin-creating cells in your pancreas.There’s research to suggest that niacin could help protect those cells and possibly even lower the risk of type 1 diabetes in children who have a higher chance of developing this condition.
- Boosts brain functionYour brain needs niacin — as a part of the coenzymes NAD and NADP — to get energy and function properly.
- Improves skin healthNiacin helps protect skin cells from sun damage, whether it’s used orally or as a cream
