Owen, I was diagnosed with mild plaque (I need another carotid screening to see the percentage) on my left artery only. I don't have heart disease, but she wants me on a statin (which I won't do unless all else fails).
I have high LDL cholesterol (and the genetic type a) and borderline HDL, so I'm on 1000mg niacin, which I've tolerated fine. I'm also exercising more (I'm a healthy weight and eat pretty decently anyway).
I just received the cardio-C. My question is how much I should take. I put one scoop in water and drank that (like lemonade
). Do I break that up throughout the day? I have a very sensitive stomach, so I need to do this right.
I'm on a lot of supplements as well (The Road Back program) to get off klonopin for good. That's been a nightmare in itself.
My question is if 1 scoop is enough right now with mild plaque. My overall cholesterol is 185, not bad at all. It's the breakdown that's bad, esp high LDL.
Also, I read the journal entry and see so many other vitamins and supplements. I just want enough to reverse the plaque without statins and strengthen my heart and lower my LDL.
The directions say 1-3 scoops. So is 1 scoop enough to start? Do I break it up over my day or can I take one scoop in water and be done? Do I need E or can I get a good multivitamin?
