Over 1.3 million Australians and New Zealanders have elevated cholesterol.
A 10% reduction in LDL cholesterol could prevent nearly 3,000 deaths every
year attributed to coronary heart disease.
Phytomega® — The only
formula that combines phytosterols with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids
Cholesterol is the fatty substance which your liver makes from the fats you eat
in food. Our bodies need cholesterol to be able to work properly and it is carried
around your body via your blood vessels by proteins. Too much cholesterol
can cause a fatty build up which narrows your blood vessels. This is called
atheroslerosis. As cholesterol is insoluble in a watery solution, it has to be
transported in the blood by special carriers called lipoproteins. The main ones
are: LDL Low density lipoprotein—“the bad one” and HDL High density
lipoprotein—“the good one”. LDL carries cholesterol from the liver to your body
and HDL returns extra cholesterol from your body to the liver. This protects
your body from cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, we consume extra
cholesterol in the foods we eat which raises our cholesterol to an unhealthy level.
Phytomega® helps lower cholesterol levels
The main ingredient in Phytomega is phytosterols, plant-derived molecules that resemble cholesterol. Phytosterols and cholesterol are so chemically similar that your body can’t tell the difference. Because Phytomega’s phytosterols mimic cholesterol, they interfere with the absorption of cholesterol—so your body absorbs less cholesterol in the bloodstream. As Phytomega replaces cholesterol, the cholesterol passes out of your body as waste.
Phytomega now provides 2g of phytosterols (plant sterols) daily. It has been shown that supplementation with 2g of phytosterols daily can help reduce cholesterol absorption, in turn helping reduce your cholesterol levels.
In addition to the plant sterols, Melaleuca have further concentrated the fish oil to provide even more heart healthy omega 3s (EPA and DHA) each day. Fish oil in combination with phytosterols have further cardiovascular support.
