Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Yet maintaining normal blood lipid profiles and healthy cholesterol levels can be as simple as eating right, exercising and using a supplement to support a healthy blood lipid profile.
To address the need for an all inclusive-supplement to support optimal cholesterol and blood lipid profiles, Avastar, Inc. is proud to introduce Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals breakthrough product, Choledrene.
The benefits of Choledrene include:
- Reduced oxidation of LDL and VLDL to help avoid the development of atherosclerotic plaques in the arteries
- Protects the liver with the powerful liver protective compound silymarin
- Inhibits cholesterol synthesis with a specially extracted form or red yeast rice
- Helps control homocysteine levels with Pyridoxine, Cyanocobalamine and Folic Acid
- Supports cellular energy production with Co Q10, Magnesium Pyruvate and L-Carnitine
- Includes L-Arginine. The critical precursor to nitric oxide, a chemical essential to the healthy function of the heart, blood vessels and the nervous system
In a small scale study, Choledrene was given to 242 men and women with a 97% success rate!
More information on the ingredients in Choledrene:
Choledrene works by helping inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol. Its unique composition of rice starch, long chain fatty acids/alcohols, and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors make it unlike any other nutriceutical on the market. Another action of Choledrene is to support a reduction in the proliferation of cells.
Healthy arteries are lined with a smooth layer of cells so that the blood can race through with no resistance. When arteries develop “lesions”, these “sticky” spots can allow an accumulation of oxidized LDL to result in a narrowing or blockage of the blood vessel. This in turn can lead to elevated risk of blood clots, increased blood pressure or even stroke.
Choledrene also incorporates a proprietary strain of phytosterols and monascus purpureus that is called Phytostatin. Our unique Phytostatin has been designed in China especially for Hi-Tech to yield precise active compounds allowing it to be sold as a dietary supplement! It yields starch, fatty acids (oleic, linoleic, linolenic, palmitic, stearic), phytosterols (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol), isoflavones, and long fatty alcohols. Our active component is MVA which is not the active in most red rice extracts. MVA need not be hydrogenized like other red yeast rice extracts and therefore yields less side effects. The heart requires magnesium for normal heart rhythm. The arteries require pyridoxine, cyanocobalamine, and folic acid for healthy arterial function. Antioxidants prevent oxidized LDL (“Bad”) cholesterol, B-Vitamins prevent excessive homocysteine production, nitric oxide (L-Arginine derived) fights arterial plaque and supports healthy blood flow, and Monascus Purpureus inhibits HMG CoA reductase which supports a reduction in cholesterol synthesis. All this and more is contained in Choledrene .
MONASCUS PURPUREUS - This compound has traditionally been used as a “blood purifier.” Hi-Tech's unique extraction method results in a highly refined product that helps prevent oxidation of LDL Cholesterol and maintains existing normal cholesterol levels by inhibiting its synthesis in the liver. It also allows Choledrene to be very effective without the potential for liver toxicity associated with certain statin-derived drugs.
COENZYME Q10 - Due to the natural tendency of statins to deplete Coenzyme Q10 (an important energy source for the heart), we have included this component to support efficient energy production in heart cells.
SILYMARIN - This compound, derived from all natural sources, has traditionally been used to protect the liver from harm caused by chemicals. Even though statins are extraordinarily safe, their function IS to inhibit cholesterol synthesis in the liver ... therefore, supporting healthy liver function is supremely important. Including a “protecting” agent such as this is one of the many reasons why Choledrene is unrivaled in today's market for over-the-counter, “cholesterol-managing” agents.
PROPRIETARY ANTIOXIDANT BLEND - “Bad” or LDL Cholesterol is dangerous because of its propensity for “oxidation.” However, the Proprietary Antioxidant Blend, scientifically formulated specifically for Choledrene, inhibits this oxidation . This component was included to support the normal, healthy structure and function of blood vessels.
PYRIDOXINE, CYANOCABALAMIN AND FOLIC ACID - Medical research has confirmed that too much homocysteine in the blood my play a greater role in the early development of atherosclerosis than cholesterol (which becomes the dominant factor in the intermediate and advanced stages). Pyridoxine, cyanocobalamine and folic acid work together to lower homocysteine in the blood, supporting the body's natural ability to avoid the onset of atherosclerosis. Further evidence has shown that people with higher levels of serum folic acid (a natural result of taking Pyridoxine, cyanocobalamine and folic acid) have a 50% LESS likelihood of dying from heart disease!
L-CARNITINE - This biochemical is necessary to maintain maximal metabolic function of cells. Specifically, L-Carnitine supports heart function in its continuous need for energy.
MAGNESIUM PYRUVATE - This synergistic combination serves a dual purpose: 1) It supports the heart's need to maintain a normal heart rhythm and 2) It serves as a fundamental energy source for heart cells.
L-ARGININE - This natural amino acid stimulates the body's production of nitric oxide, which is essential to the health of the heart, blood vessels and nervous system. This mechanism, in fact, is so critical to cardiovascular health, American and Swedish scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998 for their research on nitric oxide. According to a recently published book, The Arginine Solution, L-Arginine “opens clogged arteries, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke.”
