Lipid Balance from Progressive Laboratories is a proprietary formula developed by Dr. Mitchell Fleisher, MD to support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride blood lipid levels, as well as healthy circulation and cardiovascular health.‡
Lipid Balance utilizes a number of unique, clinically studied ingredients to help support those functions, including:
Seanol®-P is a sea-based polyphenol-phlorotannin complex extracted from the brown algae, Ecklonia cava, and contains large amounts of lipophilic (fat soluble) and hydrophobic (water insoluble) compounds. This gives Seanol®-P (for “Pure”) the unique ability to be absorbed into, and concentrated in, all the cells of the body. Seanol®-P is a very potent antioxidant.‡
Inositol hexanicotinate is a non-flushing form of niacin (vitamin B3) that supports normal circulation and balanced blood lipid levels. The body uses the water soluble vitamin B3 in the process of releasing energy from carbohydrates. It is needed to form fat from carbohydrates and to process alcohol. The niacin form of vitamin B3 also regulates cholesterol, though niacinamide does not.‡
Curcumin BCM-95® is an antioxidant that protects against the peroxidation of lipids and oxidative damage to the blood vessel walls and supports normal blood lipid levels.‡
Red Yeast Rice powder is a natural food extract shown to support healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range.‡
Warning: If you are pregnant or lactating woman, have any health conditions, or are taking any medication, make sure to consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
