Six cholesterol lowering supplements and nutrients wrote:1. Dietary fibre locks up cholesterol in your bile salts, so that it is not reabsorbed, and eliminates it from your body. Raw salad leaves, broccoli and 'GG-Bran' crispbreads are suitable low-carbohydrate sources of fibre.
2. Lecithin emulsifies cholesterol and isolates it from the walls of your arteries so that it can't stick to them. Take two tablespoons of lecithin granules daily.
3. Essential fatty acids — omega-6 from borage oil and omega-3 from fish oils (or linseed oil if you prefer) — control cholesterol production, reduce your risk of blood clots, lower blood pressure and keep your arteries supple. Take 1,500 mg of each daily.
4. Niacin is one of the most effective cholesterol-lowering nutrients, outperforming many prescription medications. It also reduces blood fat levels and the risk of clot formation. Take 100 to 500 mg daily. Using the inositol hexanicotinate form will reduce the possibility of liver toxicity. Always take a high-dose vitamin-B complex supplement at the same time.
5. Chromium reduces blood fat and cholesterol levels, and blood pressure. It also stabilises blood sugar levels and helps correct insulin resistance. 200 to 400 mcg daily is usually enough, but you may need up to 1,000 mcg if you are diabetic.
6. Pantethine, a derivative of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5), plays a pivotal role in cholesterol metabolism. In one study, 900 mg a day caused a 32 per cent drop in blood fats and a 21 per cent drop in LDL ('bad' cholestreol), while HDL ('good' cholesterol) levels rose by 23 per cent. Take 500 to 1,000 mg a day.
In addition, to my Basic Cellular Health recommendations (page 25), I recommend that patients with elevated cholesterol levels and other metabolic disorders to take the following cellular bioenergy factors in higher dosages:
•Vitamin C: fortheprotection and natural healing of the artery walls, lowering increased production of cholesterol and other secondary risk factors in the liver and reducing elevated blood levels of these secondary risk factors
•Vitamin E: for antioxidant protection of blood fats and millions of cells
•Vitamin B1: for optimizing cellular metabolism and, particularly, for the delivery of bioenergy
•Vitamin B2: for optimizing cellular metabolism and, particularly, for the delivery of bioenergy
•Vitamin B3: for lowering the elevated production of cholesterol and lipoproteins in the liver
•Vitamin B5: for the structural component of the central metabolic molecule of cells coenzyme A) and optimal metabolic burning of fat molecules
•Vitamin B6, Biotin and Folic Acid: for counteracting increased levels of the risk factor homocysteine and optimizingthemetabolism of cells
•Carnitine: for optimizing cellular metabolism of fats and lowering triglyceride levels

Probiotic drink – natur and orange.
Completely natural mineral drink for good mood
Treats insomnia and depression in a natural way
It contains the proteins of the highest biological value (lactoalbumin and lactoglobulin)
It has a beneficial effect on the digestive system, improves digestion and metabolism.
It is recommended in the prevention and treatment of liver disorders, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inflammation of skin and mucous membrane, and improving kidney functions.

Have been taking vitamin c 15g, proline 2g, lysine 6g for 2 months now. My question to the forum is how effective has the Pauling therapy been to reduce cholesterol? Would like to stop taking the niacin if possible since it makes me feel tired most of the day. Owen's book speaks anecdotally of needing 6 months to effectively reduce Lp a. I would like to hear of others' experience w/ this. Any comments would be appreciated.
With this information in mind, I decided to eliminate sucrose in my diet as much as I could in our culture while I arbitrarily set my intake of ascorbic acid at five gram per day. Much to my doctor's surprise, my cholesterol level fell from 240 units down to 180 units. I know of similar experiments with similar results. Also I have not had a cold since I have been taking the larger amount of ascorbic acid.
