Biotics Research Lipid-Sirt - 240 tabs
Biotics Research's Lipid-Sirt supports vascular integrity and healthy aging by supporting and stimulating sirtuin activity.
Hyperlipidemia is a key factor associated with an increased risk of the development of cardiovascular disease. Also referred to as high cholesterol, dyslipidemia, and lipid disorder, hyperlipidemia is a condition by which unhealthy levels of cholesterol circulate in the blood. The human body obtains cholesterol in two ways: up to 80% of the cholesterol is produced in the liver; the remainder is obtained from the diet in the form of animal products. While there is not a universally accepted level of cholesterol in the human body that is considered ‘safe’, most clinical guidelines list Total Cholesterol levels under 200 mg/dl as desirable.
Lipid-Sirt® was developed to lower cholesterol* and was formulated in collaboration with Dr. Mark Houston, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School and Director of the Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology in Nashville, TN. Each serving of Lipid-Sirt® supplies: Pantethine, which may decrease the liver’s synthesis of cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-Co reductase, an enzyme required for cholesterol production. Plant sterols (from soybean) are also included. They have been shown to reduce the intestinal absorption of cholesterol by 30-40%, significantly lowering LDL cholesterol.* Green tea consumption has been associated with a reduced mortality due to all causes, so green tea leaf extract (standardized to 50% EGCG) has also been included in Lipid-Sirt®. EGCG possesses potent antioxidant activity, thereby reducing LDL and VLDL oxidation. Delta-tocotrienol is included, as studies have demonstrated that tocotrienols may inhibit the progression of atherosclerotic lesions. Delta-tocotrienols specifically were found to possess the greatest ability to inhibit cholesterol synthesis. Lastly, Phytolens® is provided (as polymeric proanthocyanidin) which possess powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. As one of the latest addition to Biotics Research’s hugely popular Sirtuins line of cardiovascular and anti-aging products, Lipid-Sirt® is a safe and effective product for cardiovascular support and the management of hyperlipidemia.
