British Heart Foundation statistics reveal that 60% of the UK adult population have high cholesterol. ‘For your cholesterol’ by OptiBac Probiotics has been especially formulated to help you maintain normal cholesterol levels. This supplement combines high quality live cultures with alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, a type of omega 3) from cold pressed, virgin flaxseed oil.
For best results take this product for a minimum of three months. It can safely be taken on an ongoing basis with no risk of undesirable side effects.
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.
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.
Note: The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of alpha-linolenic acid as part of a balanced diet.
