What You Should know
LipidShield is a supplement designed to lower cholesterol through the use of natural ingredients. The blend of ingredients are supposed to increase your HDL, good cholesterol without the side effects of prescription medications. LipidShield claims to offer an effective alternative to prescribed pharmaceutical drugs that lower cholesterol.
List of Ingredients
LipidShield contains plant sterols and plant stanols. Sterols and stanols are found in plants and animals and are suppose to aid in cellular growth. Because cholesterol is a human produced sterol, the plan sterols and stanols found in LipidShield are claimed to work to reduce cholesterol absorption through competition. This is how LipidShield claims to lower the LDL or bad cholesterol. This has not been scientifically proven and the results of any clinical studies that offer undisputed conclusive evidence have not been released publically.
Other ingredients found in Lipidshield are Guggul which is supposed to be a natural cholesterol lowering agent from Indian medicine; and red rice yeast, also used in Chinese medicine to reduce cholesterol. These ingredients have not been tested for effectiveness in reducing cholesterol either.
The recommended daily dosage of LipidShield is twice each day- once in the morning and once in the evening. LipidShield recommends taking the supplement 20 to 30 minutes before meals. It is not recommended for use by pregnant or nursing women, people under the age of 18 or people who are taking other cholesterol lowering medications. Though LipidShield is available without a prescription, it is advised to seek the guidance of a medical doctor before beginning the supplement.
LipidShield claims that no additional exercise or dietary guidelines are required for LipidShield to work, however this has not been proven conclusively by any of the studies that have been released to the public. Anyone already practicing a healthy diet and exercise routine should continue.
