Cholestoff, manufactured by Nature Made, is a product that claims to naturally help to lower the cholesterol for those that high levels of it. This product is said to contain ingredients that have been well known to lower the cholesterol naturally in the body and these ingredients reportedly prevent the body from absorbing any further dietary cholesterol.

According the statements on the Cholestoff site, the natural supplement can help to reduce the cholesterol by up to 24% and also reportedly helps to improve the overall health of the heart as well.

List of ingredients

Cholestoff contains quite a range of ingredients and among these are: plant sterols or stanols from pine trees, Tribasic Calcium Phosphate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Calcium Carbonate, Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide (artificial color), Polyethylene Glycol, Triethyl Citrate, Polysorbate 80 and Sodium Citrate.

Product Features

First of all, when looking at Cholestoff you should be made aware that the bottom of the site clearly states that the product is not meant to cure, treat, diagnose or prevent any disease which makes the viewer wonder if the product matches the hype that has been attached to it. Secondly, it also mentions that it has not in any way been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which again leads to scepticism about the product.

Cholestoff is not suitable for pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding and also, despite the fact that it is a supplement, the user should consult with a medical professional such as their local doctor or physician before taking the product.

Advantages

  • Cholestoff uses plant derivatives as its active ingredients which are all natural.
  • Cholestoff is very inexpensive. One bottle of Cholestoff retails for about $7.

Disadvantages

  • Cholestoff makes a lot of claims on the official website but has limited information backing them up.
  • For those with high cholesterol, you may want to rely on products a little more well known to avoid serious health issues.
  • Various reviews around the Internet vary greatly between “Doesn’t work” and “Wonderful” so we can’t get a good feel for the effectiveness of this product.
  • Cholestoff is ineffective as a weight loss supplement.

Conclusion

High cholesterol can lead to life-threatening conditions if left untreated for a long period of time. Cholestoff claims to help lower your cholesterol which could be very beneficial. This product is so inexpensive, we don’t see how it could hurt to add it to your daily routine if you are concerned about your cholesterol levels but you may want to use it in addition to something recommended by your physician. We can’t really categorize Cholestoff as a “weight loss” product so if you are looking for a way to lose weight, you should probably keep looking.

    I have been taking Cholestoff for several weeks, and I developed heart palpitations during this time. Not sure if they’re connected. Has anyone else had this experience? Does Cholestoff contain anything that could be bad for the heart?
    Thanks

    I have used Cholestoff w/ Red Yeast Rice for several years. My cholestrol level continues to come down. I have avoided taking prescription medication. High cholestorl runs in my family and I have wanted to avoid taking it. I am also a runner [I run every day] and a vegetarian!

    I’ve had really good luck with Cholestoff lowering my cholesterol numbers, but I’m having a lot of bloating, gas, and loose stools. Lots of stress in life right now, so I’m not sure what is the culprit, but started taking Cholestoff about the time the stress began. Has anyone else had digestive issues along with Cholestoff?

    [Reply]

    Larry

    I had the same bloating thing at first, but it seems to have gone away. Maybe because I now make sure I take it before a meal (or just after).

    alot of the prescription statins cause your blood sugars to go way up. Same thing happened to me, was put on meds for diabetes and test every day with my meter. Went of statins and guess what diabetes went away and metformin discontinued!!!!!! It is not an uncommon complication of statin drugs. I am going to try cholestoff instead….

    As a nurse I was very skeptical to take supplements and statin. I came across Cholesteroloff at Costco and read the ingresients. I asked my doctor about it and we both decided to check my cholesterol level as the baseline reading.However, I was still skeptical and waited another month.Then I decided to take Cholesteroloff for 4-6 weeks and had my cholesterol level checked and to my surprise my cholesterol dropped to 193.I decided to continue taking it but will have frequent chemistry testing of my kidneys, liver and cholesterol or lipid profile.Furthermore,hyperlipidimia runs in my family.

    I have been taking Cholestoff for months..after having horrible side effects from prescription statin meds. which did not work well. Cholestoff really worked for me! My doctor was so pleased with my blood test results and then I told her that I had been taking Cholestoff for the previous 6 months. (she had never heard of it!)

    I take losartan and metoprolol er and have used cholest off for 4 months without side effects. I also started a low fat low cholesterol diet at the same time. My blood test showed a drop in total chol. from 235 to 193. If you’re interested in this product you can buy 240 caplets at amazon.com fo about $15 (about a 2 month supply) There are other supplements that are supposed to be much better, but they run about $35-$40 per month. With the cost so low, it’s at least worth a try.

    With no diet modification my cholesterol has remained as with meds. I’m going to change my diet to try and reduce it further. At least I have no muscle pain w/ Cholestoff. Muscle pain is a major side effect of Simvastatin.

    Can I take Cholestoff with Zetia(not a statin, but and alternative prescription) I can’t take statins as they caused side effects.

    [Reply]

    John

    I’ve been told, by my cardiologist, that Zetia has been linked to, possibly, causing cancer. Check it out with your doctor before taking it.
    I began taking CholestOff just less than a week ago. I’m a severe diabetic and, all of a sudden, my blood sugars are thru the roof…..tonight, 3-1/2 hrs after supper: 406. I’ve also felt slightly off balance as well. I don’t think CholestOff is for me. I’m discontinuing it.
    I, too, have tried statins. Atorvastatin gave me severe leg cramps; Crestor gave me diarrhea and with Livalo, after five weeks, I had unbearable hip(s) pain that spread to my lower back and went around to my abdomen and groin. So I don’t know what the answer is. Everything I’ve read on statins is negative.

    I would like to see scientific studies on Cholestoff. Otherwise, I do not take your commendable comments of Cholestoff seriously.
