Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) January 3, 2006
Physicians’ Natural Solutions, an alternative healthcare clinic in Clearwater, Florida, has reported success in the treatment of elevated cholesterol levels with LipidShield™, a plant-based dietary supplement which acts to bind and eliminate excess cholesterol in the human body. The supplement, promoted by its manufacturer, New Health Corp. of Melbourne, Florida, as a safe and natural alternative to cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, was observed by clinic physicians to assist in the reduction of cholesterol levels by as much 103 points over a 21-day-period, and produced no reported side effects.
“Clinical trials have already shown the stanols and sterols used in the formulation of LipidShield™ to be effective in lowering cholesterol levels,” said the clinic’s executive director, Dr. Rene Reed, a board certified chiropractic orthopedist, naturopathic medical doctor, and clinical nutritionist. “Over the years, our clinic has lowered the cholesterol levels of scores of patients using the natural components used in the formulation of this supplement, so we were not surprised by LipidShield’s™ effectiveness and lack of accompanying side-effects.”
Cholesterol is a waxy substance manufactured in the liver and also obtained from dietary sources, primarily meat and dairy products. Used in the production of hormones, elevated levels of cholesterol in the body (over 200 milligrams per deciliter) can lead to restricted blood flow, clogged arteries, and trigger sudden heart attacks and strokes. Health officials estimate that roughly half of all adults have unhealthy levels of cholesterol and 42 million adults have “dangerously high” levels (239 and above).
Dr. Reed said commonly prescribed statin drugs like Lipitor, Zocor, and Crestor are effective in lowering cholesterol levels, but many health professionals do not recommend their use due to various reported side effects.
“The statin drugs lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting cholesterol production in the body, but the statins also can produce weakness, nausea, liver damage and destruction of muscle tissue,” said Dr. Reed.
According to the product’s Web site, (http://www.lipidshield.com) LipidShield’s™ formula includes phytosterols and stanols with Policosanol, Guggulipid, and Red Yeast Rice, some of the most researched nutraceutical ingredients available for heart health.
A spokesman for LipidShield’s™ manufacturer said the supplement will undergo a double blind clinical trial during the first quarter of 2006.
LipidShield™ is manufactured in an FDA-inspected and registered CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility.
