LIPOGIL is a dietary supplement containing Berberis (traditionally used to help regular cardiovascular and hepatic functions) fermented red rice, octacosanol, astaxanthin and coenzyme Q10.
Berberin: Berberin is one of the main alkaloids present in plants of the genus Berberis. Several scientific studies indicate that Berberin is useful in the treatment of dyslipidemia, significantly reducing blood levels of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol.
Red rice Monascus purpureus: during fermentation, this yeast is enriched with monacolin, a substance which has been scientifically recognised a strong cholesterol-lowering property, red rice monacolin K can inhibit HMG-CoA reductase which is a key enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis.
Policosanol: Policosanol is a natural mix of primary aliphatic alcohols extracted from rice wax or sugar cane. Policosanol improve blood fat content both by reducing hepatic cholesterol biosynthesis and by increasing DLD cholesterol clearance.
Astaxanthin: the antioxidant activity of astaxanthin was tested in numerous studies and in some cases has proven to be more powerful than that of Vitamin E and Beta-carotene. This property brings along the multiple protective effect against oxidative damage to the body.
Coenzyme Q10: CoQ10 is an oxidative reduction agent that acts on the mitochondrial energy production chain.
