What does it do?

Support Healthy Cholesterol Levels

Today everyone recognizes how important it is to keep a healthy level of cholesterol. Though some cholesterol is needed to have efficient cell membrane structure, to produce steroidal hormones, and other critical functions.

Lifestyles matter. Diet and exercise are the first suggested approaches to help maintain normal cholesterol levels1, for example, by reducing intake of fat in the diet and eating a primarily plant-based diet. Natural herbal supplements such as CholestAssure™ may also play a role in keeping serum cholesterol and triglycerides at levels that are already within the normal range.

Signature Formula Contains All Natural Herbs

CholestAssure™ is not a classic traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This botanically-sourced natural remedy for maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglycerides is our signature formula. The reason why ActiveHerb does not use a classic TCM formula is quite simple. In TCM, there is no focus on cholesterol. Cholesterol is not mentioned in classical TCM texts.

Beyond getting a blood test for cholesterol levels, many people do not realize that they even have excess serum cholesterol or triglycerides as it may not manifest any symptom.

From a TCM perspective, cholesterol may belong to "internal phlegm," and its buildup in the blood vessels may add to "blood stasis." Thus, Chinese herbs that remove phlegm and blood stasis have help support a healthy cholesterol metabolism from the blood. Indeed, studies have found that many Chinese herbs may play such a role, including each of the herbs in CholestAssure™.

If you want to harness the power from nature to support your cholesterol, look no further than CholestAssure™.

How Does CholestAssure™ Work?

Hawthorn fruit (Fructus Crataegi, Sheng Shan Zha) is used in TCM to improve digestion and remove food retention in the stomach, as well as promote blood circulation to disperse blood stasis. Because it unblocks stagnation, it is particularly beneficial for those who eat fatty, greasy foods.

Fleeceflower root (Radix Polygoni Multiflori, He Shou Wu) is a Liver and Kidney tonic and nourishes the Blood and Jing. This famous TCM herb also moistens the Intestines and unblocks the bowels.

Goji berry (Fructus Lycii, Gou Qi Zi) is a tonic for Liver and Kidney Blood.

King Solomon's Seal (Rhizoma Polygonati, Huang Jing) is a tonic for Spleen Qi and nurtures Stomach Yin.

Reishi (Ganoderma, Ling Zhi), a medicinal mushroom, tonifies Heart Qi, nourishes Heart Blood and calms the Spirit.

Alisma rhizome (Rhizoma Alismatis Orientalis, Ze Xie) leaches out dampness, and drains Kidney Fire.

Turmeric (Rhizoma Curcumae Longae, Jiang Huang) invigorates Blood and promotes the movement of Qi.

Safflower (Flos Carthami Tinctorii, Hong Hua) invigorates the Blood and dispels Blood Stasis.

Chinese Angelica root (Radix Angelicae Sinensis, Dang Gui) both tonifies and invigorates the Blood.

Szechwan Lovage Rhizome (Rhizoma Ligustici Chuanxiong, Chuan Xiong) invigorates the Blood and moves Qi.
