From ITALY IBSA, the ntegratore IBSA based phytosterols, red rice, and olive polyphenols
GLUTEN (GLUTEN FREE) LACTOSE FREE (LACTOSE FREE)
IBSA Italy, a company with a strong vocation for innovation and research and long engaged in cardio-metabolic presents Colesia®. From June in Pharmacy, Colesia® is a dietary supplement newly developed, which helps to reduce the absorption, synthesis and oxidation of cholesterol.
Most of the products available today are focused exclusively on the reduction of absorption, disregarding the metabolic aspect of synthesis and oxidation, which, especially as we age, it becomes crucial - particularly in women - because the 'body tends to produce in excess.
Cholesterol is, however, essential for the organism, important to produce numerous hormones and for the formation of cell membranes. In addition to being introduced with the diet and absorbed from foods that contain it, it is also produced by the body (biosynthesis). Elevated levels of cholesterol are a risk factor for the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and stroke, and it is therefore essential to maintain correct cholesterol values. Important, therefore, to act on the diet, which should be varied, balanced, low-cholesterol content, although the only power control is not always sufficient. IBSA addresses this need through Colesia®.
Colesia® contains sterols and plant stanols that, as is well documented in letteratura1, can reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, due to their ability to inhibit the incorporation in micelles in the intestine and, consequently, reduce absorption.
The red yeast rice, which contains monacolin K (natural statin), can be an interesting contribution against hypercholesterolemia. clinici2,3 studies suggest that red yeast rice can lower LDL cholesterol levels by 10% to 33%, depending on the dose.
There is, finally, a long time international consensus on the many benefits of olive oil polyphenols (hydroxytyrosol and derivatives) in preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, a risk factor for atherosclerosis development that damage arteries.
The formulation of Colesia® soft capsule (softgel), of which IBSA is a leading international manufacturer, and the absence of gluten and lactose, ensure safety and efficacy to an increasingly broad range of patients.
