One option: Red yeast rice naturally contains lovastatin. Naive people who think "synthetic is bad" can use this very effective cholesterol-lowering agent and imagine it's superior "because it's natural." Vegetarianism is only a mild help in managing lipid and when you control for everything, really doesn't protect against heart disease or much else.

If "high" is due to HDL, no problem. If "high" is due to LDL, that is a risk for atherosclerosis. Are your triglycerides high or normal? Hi triglycerides correlate with low HDL, which is another risk for atherosclerosis. So without more information... ...Read more

Would 800mg of phytosterols in my 2g daily fish oil supplement be considered good for cholesterol/cardiovasciular health, or is it at all risky?

Would 800mg of phytosterols in my 2g daily fish oil supplement be considered good for cholesterol/cardiovasciular health, or is it at all risky?

The most thorough: Way to assess and manage cholesterol issues is to look a the lab values from the blood test your doc does. High triglycerides need good quality marine fish oil in the proper dose. High LDL responds to Red Yeast Rice capsules. Phytosterols have their place but I don't find them to be as effective as the above. Please check w/your doc or a natural health professional. Peace and good health. ...Read more
