A study by the Portuguese Cardiology Foundation has shown that approximately 2/3 of the Portuguese adult population have high cholesterol levels.
European scientific societies recommend a cholesterol level lower than 190 mg/dl, when dealing with the general population.
Nevertheless, high cholesterol levels don't cause any symptoms. When they do occur, they may be triggered (angina) or myocardial infarction.
This is, therefore, a very serious condition, which should be prevented.
Cholesterol is an essential fat existing in our organism, which has two sources: a fraction is produced by the organism itself, particularly by the liver, while the other fraction is obtained from diet, particularly from consuming animal products, including meat, eggs and dairy products.
Our bodies need cholesterol to produce:

Cholesterol circulates in the blood bound to a protein; this cholesterol-protein combination is, therefore, known as lipoprotein:

Our body only needs a small amount of cholesterol to meet our needs.
While searching for solutions for the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, food supplements arise as important allies in wellbeing promotion and in the protection of your health.

Recommended use
1 tablet per day, at meals.

Recommendations and precautions
Not recommended for children and adolescents.
Do not exceed the daily recommended dose. Dosage may be changed according to medical prescription.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
Do not use in case of hypersensitivity or allergy to any of the excipients.
If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your doctor or pharmacist before using.
If you have any concerns, please consult a health professional, your doctor or pharmacist.

Since there are increasingly more patients intolerant to statins (most common group of drugs) and since there is greater demand for other products with a similar hypolipidemic effect, we've developed LipoCOLESTEROL tecnilor®.

Red yeast rice has high levels of phytosterols, fatty acids and monacolin K, a highly effective compound in the inhibition of cholesterol synthesis, also very effective in reducing triglycerides.
The impact of red yeast rice on cholesterol levels seems very similar to be action of chemical statins, being therefore known as natural statin. It has gained increased acknowledgement as an effective alternative in controlling dyslipidemia, particularly in people who are intolerant to chemical statin based medicine (from myalgia, muscle weakness, etc.).
EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) has approved health claims for Monacolin K from red yeast rice.

"Monacolin K from Red Yeast Rice contributes towards the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels in the blood".

Is a molecule that exists in our organism and that plays an important role in energy metabolism and in antioxidant protection for our cells.
Coenzyme Q10 has shown, in several studies: the ability to increase HDL and vitamin E levels; a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure; decrease in blood glucose levels in type II diabetics; improvements in Parkinson's patients; the reduction of bacterian plaque was also proven, with consequent reduction of periodontal inflammation and also reduction of migraines.
Currently, the greatest factor for Q10 deficiency is the consumption of statins, beta-blockers and antidepressants.

Omega 3 favours cholesterol and triglyceride decrease in the blood, has anti-thrombotic properties (to prevent thrombosis) and anti-atherogenic (to prevent arteriosclerosis that ultimately results in vein blockage). It protects against the occurrence of heart rhythm disorders and cardiovascular diseases in general.

Vitamin E contributes towards the protection of cells against oxidative stress.

Policosanol helps maintain normal "bad cholesterol" levels in blood, while also promotes an increase of "good cholesterol".
Due to the risk of addiction, special care must be taken in individuals taking oral anticoagulants or antiplatelet medication.

Vitamins B6 and B12 contribute towards the normal formation of red blood cells.

Chromium contributes towards the maintenance of normal glucose levels in the blood.
It is also essential for cholesterol synthesis.
