Artichoke for High Cholesterol
Natural Supplement for high cholesterol & weight loss
Alcachofa Plus (Artichoke Plus) is a natural supplement indicated for people suffering from high cholesterol. It may be used as a complementary medicine, or alternative, for high cholesterol drugs, like Lipitor and Crestor.
As a potent herbal supplement, Alcachofa Plus (Artichoke Plus) contains active compounds derived from the extracts of Artichoke leaves, Avocado seeds and Eggplant.
Alcachofa Plus (Artichoke Plus) has shown to reduce blood cholesterol and triglycerides by inhibiting the enzyme that produces cholesterol and metabolizing “bad” cholesterol. This Artichoke extract is also an aid to digestion, improves liver function and is an effective natural diuretic and prebiotic.
In a study conducted at the research unit of the Juan N. Corpas Medical School, 160 patients were divided into two groups. Artichoke Plus was administered to the first group in conjunction with a special diet while the second group was only on the diet.
All patients with cholesterol levels between 220 to 240 mg/dl, took Artichoke Plus over a period of 8 weeks. The following results were reported at the conclusion of the study:
Group 1 (Atrichoke Plus & Diet): 75 patients (93.75%) presented a reduction in cholesterol levels; 3 (3.75%) did not present changes and the 2 patients left (2.50%) demonstrated an increase in cholesterol levels.
Group 2 (Diet Only): 50 patients (62.50%) decreased its cholesterol levels; 20 patients (25.00%) did not change in Cholesterol levels and 10 patients (12.50%) reported an increase.
The Health and Nature Shop recommends taking Yoco Plus along with Artichoke Plus and a healthy diet and exercise routine to help boost your weight loss results. The mix of these two herbal remedies is a potent natural fat burner.
