THE POWER TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY CHOLESTEROL LEVELS AND FIGHT HEART DISEASE NATURALLY!
In his book entitled “Natural Remedies for a Healthy Heart”, the author Dr. David Heber, an internationally recognized authority in nutrition and disease prevention at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition noted that “not everyone can achieve appropriate reduction in cholesterol levels through diet alone or even diet combined with exercise and stress reduction”. In such cases, drug intervention may be necessary. Unfortunately, the use of prescriptive drugs in lowering cholesterol is often associated with high cost maintenance and sometimes undesirable long term side effects.
The good news is that with HypoCol capsules, there is now a natural way for general health maintenance with cost effectiveness and safety.
Why Choose HypoCol?
HypoCol is an all-natural preparation derived from a well-documented traditional remedy that has been used in China for over 1000 years for circulatory health and as a food preservative.
HypoCol contains 100% proprietary Red Yeast Rice (known as “Hong Qu” in China) produced by fermentation of red yeast of the species Monascus purpureus Went on premium rice. The proprietary ingredient of HypoCol™ capsules has been clinically proven for safety and efficacy in well-designed clinical studies involving thousands of subjects in the USA and China.
Hypocol which was traditionally used for maintenance of general health could be included in your health management programme and be complemented with healthy diet and regular exercise.
HypoCol is specially recommended for use by healthy adult men and post-menopausal women concerned about maintaining general health.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF HYPOCOL?
Hypocol capsules are scientifically prepared using the proprietary ingredient *Red Yeast (known in Chinese as “Hong Qu”) of the species Monascus purpureus Went, fermented on premium rice. Well-documented as a traditional Chinese health food and for circulatory health, Hong Qu’s record dates back during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and was first published in the ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia, “Ben Cao Gang My – Dan Shi Buy Yi”.
This knowledge combined with thorough understanding of modern pharmacology and biotechnology led to the development of Hypocol capsule, an all-natural cholesterol balancing product of clinically proven efficacy.
WHAT ARE THE CAUTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH HYPOCOL?
Not recommended for pregnant or nursing woman; individuals under 20 years of age and those at risk for or have history of liver disease.
Consult your physician if you are taking any medication, or if you are under physician supervision for cholesterol control.
This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
WHAT ARE THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE?
Take 2 capsules 2 times a day (morning & evening) after meals.
HOW IS HYPOCOL SUPPLIED?
Each package of Hypocol contains a supply of 30 or 90 capsules at 600 mg. The reddish powder is enclosed in an easy-to-swallow clear gelatin capsule.
HOW IS HYPOCOL STORED?
Store in a cool dry place away from excessive heat and light. Keep out of reach of children.
WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL?
Cholesterol is a fatty chemical which is an important part of the outer lining (membrane) of cells in the body. Most cholesterol is produced in the liver, and is carried in the bloodstream to the body’s cells by special proteins called “lipoproteins.” Cholesterol has the properties of an oil and cannot dissolve in blood without lipoproteins. The two major lipoproteins are low density lipoprotein (LDL) and high density lipoprotein (HDL). Cholesterol is found mainly in foods that come from animals. These include meat, poultry, fish and dairy products. Organ meats, such as liver, are especially high in cholesterol content. Foods of plant origin have no cholesterol.
HOW DOES YOUR BODY NATURALLY CONTROL CHOLESTEROL?
Dietary cholesterol comes mainly from meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. Organ meats, such as liver, are especially high in cholesterol content, while foods of plant origin contain no cholesterol. After a meal, cholesterol is absorbed by the intestines into the blood circulation and is then packaged inside a protein coat. This cholesterol-protein coat complex is called a chylomicron.
The liver is capable of removing cholesterol from the blood circulation as well as manufacturing cholesterol and secreting cholesterol into the blood circulation. After a meal, the liver removes chylomicrons from the blood circulation. In between meals, the liver manufactures and secretes cholesterol back into the blood circulation.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO LOWER LDL (BAD) CHOLESTEROL LEVELS?
In the past 10 years, clinical trials have conclusively demonstrated that lowering LDL cholesterol reduces heart attacks and saves lives. The benefits of lowering LDL cholesterol include:
1. Reducing the formation of new cholesterol plaques;
2. Eliminating existing plaques;
3. Preventing rupture of existing plaques;
4. Decreasing the risk of heart attacks; and
5. Lowering the chance of strokes.
WHAT IS RED YEAST RICE?
Red Yeast Rice has been a food flavoring and coloring additive in the Chinese cuisine for more than 1000 years. The famous red-yeast chicken and red-yeast rice noodles are still very popular with the Foochows in Singapore. Since the ancient days, red yeast rice has been known to be a medicinal food. In fact, red yeast rice, called ‘hongqu’ in Mandarin is recorded in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) as a medicine to improve blood circulations and the ‘chi’.
In the 1970’s, a Japanese scientist discovered that selected strains of Monascus Purpureus yeast on fermentation with rice produce certain metabolites, known collectively as Monacolins, which can effectively inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, the enzyme that is responsible for cholesterol production in the liver.
In the 1980’s, Professor Zhang Maoliang of Peking University identified and patented specific strains of Monascus purpureus yeast which, when fermented under strict control, produce the right mix of monacolins to have optimal effect on cholesterol reduction without the adverse effects of undesirable by-products. Un-researched fermentation of certain strains of red yeast could result in the production of toxic by-products such as citrinin.
In the years that followed, Professor Zhang and his team from Peking University, in collaboration with leading medical institutions throughout China, carried out extensive clinical research on the efficacy and safety of red yeast rice in reducing cholesterol. These researches led to the invention of two proprietary red yeast formulations, including Xuezhikang™ which is patented.
In China, Xuezhikang™ is marketed as a Chinese Medicine with the same status as Zocor, Mevacor or any statin-based drugs currently being sold by the established pharmaceutical companies.
