    OTC products to lower cholesterol/raise HDL

    Hey bros.

    I posted a tread earlier about what must be the biggest longterm threat to health from gear use -elevated cholesterol levels and trigycerides and lowered HDL levels. You can get more info at the thread: http://67.18.108.244//showthread.php...ht=cholesterol

    Besides seriously cutting sat fats from your diet as much as possible while on a cycle, and diet stuff like water soluble fiber (like oatmeal and barley) there are OTC products that research shows can have a positive effect on lipids.

    I've read a lot of info on something called policosanol and, much as I hate to schill a product (and they're not even paying me to do it!), Walgreen's has come out with a policosanol-based product called Advocate. The one I got ($30) includes two mail-in cholesterol test kits, which anybody on gear ought to be using to monitor themselves anyway, so it's a good deal.

    If you cycle regularly this kind of thing could save your life or at least get your lipid levels down to a level that won't damage your health longterm.

    ..I've got to look into this....I also have high total cholesterol (hereditary) and time-release niacin has been effective for me. Non-time release niacin will flush you as red as a lobster!!

    Actually that Walgreen's product has Niacin as well -the "non-flush" kind. But the crucial ingredient is supposed to be policosanol, as far as being most effective.
