CHATSWORTH, Calif. Natrol on Monday announced the introduction this month of Cholest Intercept, which according to the company is a natural, safe and effective way to lower LDL cholesterol by as much as 15 percent in as little as 4 weeks while also preserving HDL cholesterol.
“Cholest Intercept contains an advanced formula of plant sterols that can actively compete with food cholesterol for absorption in the small intestines,” stated Michael Yatcilla, Natrol vice president of research and development. “When Cholest Intercept is taken with meals, the body absorbs less cholesterol from fish, meat, dairy, eggs and other animal products. This results in lower levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood.”
Cholest Intercept also contains B-vitamins which have been shown to help maintain normal homocysteine levels that are already in the normal range, Yatcilla added.
According to Natrol, the company is promoting the product launch through a buy-one-get-one-free offer at Rite Aid through Sept. 27.
