Nutritional Recommendations for High Cholesterol (Hypercholesterolemia)
- Chromium picolinate 200 mcg with Niacin 50-100 mg (flushing type) have a synergistic effect at lowering cholesterol levels and enable the dose of niacin to be reduced without reducing its effects.
- Vitamin E 800 IU daily. Vitamin E causes an increase in HDL. May be taken with Selenium 200 mcg, which has a synergistic effect with vitamin E.
- L-Carnitine, Taurine, and 50-200 mg per day of Co-Q10 may improve the ratio of high density lipoproteins (HDL) and low density lipoproteins (LDL).
