Policosanol is a mixture of long-chain aliphatic alcohols that naturally occur in sugar cane.
- Over a decade of short-term and long-term clinical research involving thousands of subjects reveals the safety and tolerability of policosanol.
- The promising results of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, including comparative studies, suggest that it supports cardiovascular health.
- Though the mechanism for cardiovascular support of this substance remains unclear, it may act in part by providing antioxidant protection, promoting healthy platelet function, and supporting healthy lipid metabolism.
- At the highest dosage recommended by Pure Encapsulations, it may support healthy lipid metabolism in some individuals.
