Clinically trialled and tested
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) has undergone numerous clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy at helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, and the ability of this particular omega 3 (ALA) to support health has been validated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Our high quality ALA is sourced from cold pressed virgin flax seed oil.

The live cultures in this supplement (‘AB-Life’ Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7527, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7528, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7529) have undergone a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial which was been published in the British Journal of Nutrition in May 2013. What’s more these strains from OptiBac Probiotics have been tested and shown to survive environmental stressors and gastric acidity, to survive to reach the gut alive.

How does 'For your cholesterol' work?
This combined live cultures and omega 3 supplement supports blood cholesterol levels by utilising 6 different mechanisms of action – acting on both the liver’s natural production of cholesterol as well as absorption of dietary cholesterol in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Take OptiBac Probiotics 'For your cholesterol' every day to naturally help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Can I take ‘For your cholesterol’ alongside other medicines and supplements?

In short Yes!
'For your cholesterol' is absolutely safe to take alongside any medicine or food supplement.

n depth
Many people who take medication such as statins may also wish to take this product. This is absolutely fine. ‘For your cholesterol’ does not interfere with the efficacy of statins, and its mechanisms of action are completely different to those of statins. Live cultures are confined to within the gut, whereas statins act upon the liver to decrease production of cholesterol.

In the clinical trial which has been completed on the strains in ‘For your cholesterol’ no side effects were reported. In addition the mechanisms of action of these particular live cultures are slow and steady which greatly reduces the risk of side effects and interactions with medicines and other natural supplements.
