What is the best, most specific way to take supplements to lower bad cholesterol and increase good? Can you be specific about what dosages?

No good evidence. Best currently available agent is Niacin to both lower LDL cholesterol and raise hdl-cholesterol. Not niacinamide, and not no-flush niacin. There are known adverse effects that need to be followed, and strategies to minimize them, but need professional follow up. Fish oils, ala, resveratrol, coq10 are not useful.
Several. There are several natural supplements: artichoke leaf, cholesterol, fish oil, flax seed, green tea, niacin, omega-3. Dosing varies depending on manufacturer. Red yeast rice also lowers cholesterol but actually contains lovastatin. Http://chrisohmd. Com/? p=189.
