Frequently Asked Questions
The liver produces cholesterol as a waxy, fat-like substance to help the body function properly. Cholesterol also enters our blood system when we eat foods from animal sources, including meat, dairy products, and eggs. There are two types of cholesterol, called LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). LDL is often called "bad cholesterol" because it can build up on the walls of our arteries (major blood vessels) and cause a blockage, known as plaque build-up. HDL is also called "good cholesterol," because it helps carry LDL away from the walls of our arteries.

Our bottle and packaging have all of Health Canada’s standard precautions which read as follows: Cautions and Warnings Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you have a liver disorder or develop symptoms of liver trouble such as abdominal pain, dark urine or jaundice, if you have an iron deficiency, or you are using anticoagulants (such as warfarin) or antiplatelet agents (such as acetylsalicyclic acid). Contraindications Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
High LDL (or bad) cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke, because it can make it difficult for blood to flow to the heart and throughout the body. This can also cause circulatory problems, narrowing of the arteries, and a condition called "atherosclerosis." If you have a family history of heart disease or stroke, you may be at increased risk, and being overweight or having diabetes can also raise your cholesterol levels.
Always consult with your doctor or pharmacist first. There are many ways to manage and maintain your cholesterol levels, including eating a heart-healthy diet with more high-fiber grains and omega-3 rich foods, increasing your daily exercise (to increase your good cholesterol) and quitting smoking (smoking increases bad cholesterol).
