I too have inherited high cholesterol and despite my healthy eating habits have a tendency to run on the high side. I also refuse to go back on meds after years of statins and now muscle problems.
One thing that I am trying is Kenzen Bergisterol. It's made with Citrus Bergamia Risso which is a natural juice concentrate. You can only get it from a Nikken distributor, which I am one but don't promote it as a business. I don't know yet if this is working for me. I was told it takes 2 months to have an effect. I'm scheduled to be tested in December and will know if it's working then.
I'm also wondering if the medical community is going to change the current levels after new research that's been in the News.
275 is considered high, but that seems to be my personal normal.View Thread
