Details

NOW® Policosanol is a blend of long-chain fatty alcohols (LCFA) derived from sugar cane, a superior source of these natural plant waxes. Non-clinical studies have shown that the fatty alcohol constituents in Policosanol possess considerable antioxidant activity, can protect serum lipids against free radical attack and support healthy immune function. Policosanol can support cardiovascular health through these and other mechanisms.

  1. Policosanol Review
    Rating
    5 5

    Policosanol is a long chain alcohol taken out of sugar can wax in Cuba and beeswax and wheat germ in the United States and other countries. Policosanol is more than 66% octacosanol (eight chain alcohol), which athletes use to improve their performance. The other part of policosanol is a variety of alcohols of different chain lengths.

    Policosanol is capable of reducing bad cholesterol levels and thus reducing the risk of artherosclerosis developing. This effect is due to its ability to improve the liver’s absorption of bad cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol levels.

    Policosanol also possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities. It also might be able to protect blood vessels by keeping bad cholesterol from oxidizing, which can be destructive. Its effectiveness on cholesterol has been studied in long and short term as well as safety studies. It seems as effective as prescription drugs without major safety issues. This includes it being safe for those with liver disease to use.

    It is also sometimes used as an alternative to aspirin and other nutritional blood thinners to help prevent blood clots from forming.

    Note that most of the studies of policosanol have been done in Cuba by the company that patented policosanol production from sugar cane. The Cuban studies found it very beneficial, but most other studies produced inconclusive results.

    Policosanol is usually taken as a dose of one or two 5 to 6mg tablets with food in the evening. Dosage can be increased to up to 24mg a day if results are not achieved after two months of a smaller dosage. Policosanol is most effective if you take other steps to reduce your cholesterol such as exercising regularly and consuming a low fat diet.

    Associated side effects are usually mild and can include rash, headache, upset stomach, and weight loss. Caution should be taken when policosanol is taken along with other blood thinners such as aspirin, Coumadin, Plavix, vitamin E, ginkgo, or garlic.
