Most Popular Questions

  • What exactly is CholesLo™ ?

    CholesLo™ is a natural dietary supplement (in a vegetarian capsule), containing organic herbs, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It contains ingredients that have been scientifically research and clinically tested to help support healthy cholesterol levels and promote improved lipid profiles.

    CholesLo™ is doctor formulated and it is designed to help give the body key nutrients, to help your body "heal" itself from within. The synergistic combination of ingredient, creates a formula which helps promote healthy cholesterol levels, naturally.

    Unlike a prescription cholesterol lowering drug (such as statin drugs), CholesLo's™ natural formula has no known reported side-effects and has been shown to be safe for daily usage.

    The general dosage is 2 pills, taken twice daily with one glass of water -- with or without food.

  • How does CholesLo™ work?... What are the benefits?

    CholesLo™ is the only product on the market, which is designed to help promote healthy lipid levels, utilizing multiple methods.

    The problem with most products is they only focus on "lowering cholesterol". That's just ONE aspect for a healthy heart. However, there are many other factors that should be optimized for maximum heart health, such as:

    • Healthy Range for Cholesterol Levels (you obviously don't want it high, but you also don't want it too low)
    • Balanced HDL/LDL Ratios (the ratio is more important than total cholesterol)
    • Reduced Fatty Triglyceride's (harmful for arterial plaque build-up)
    • Improved Homocysteine Levels (40% better indicator of potential heart disease)
    • Cleansing & Strengthen of Your Liver (80% of your cholesterol is made in your liver)

    When I originally formulate CholesLo for my parents, I wanted the above benefits all in one, simple and convenient pill. This is probably why people have referred to CholesLo™ as an "all-in-one" solution. And other's have called it a "Vitamin For Your Heart".

  • Why is CholesLo™ better than other solutions?

    Here are the top 10 reasons:

    1. A complete "all-in-one" formula designed for improving the 5 primary lipid levels.
    2. Real life proof with hundreds of reviews, including before/after blood tests.
    3. A natural formula containing scientifically researched organic herbs, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, inside of a vegetarian pill.
    4. A simple and convenient, drug-free option.
    5. Safer than drugs because it's not habit forming and has no reported side-effects.
    6. Proven track record for over 19+ years and Million Pills Sold
    7. Ensured quality and purity because it's manufactured in an FDA complaint facility that's NSF and GMP certified.
    8. Doctor formulated, medically endorsed using scientifically researched ingredients.
    9. Contains NO additives, fillers, artificial colors or ingredients. Non-GMO, gluten-free, sugar-free and vegetarian.
    10. One-year satisfaction guarantee with a "no results", refund + $100.00 cash back.

Additional Questions

  • Why would I or anyone even need to use CholesLo™ ?

    Everything in the body should be in healthy balance, cholesterol is no exception. You don't want "high" cholesterol because it is one of the factors that can lead to heart disease, a heart attack or stroke.

    On the other hand, you also do NOT want "too low" of cholesterol either - which is one of the problems with taking prescription drugs. Cholesterol has many benefits in your body, one of them being that it helps create your hormones (testosterone, estrogen, DHEA, etc.).

    So the goal is to have healthy and balanced cholesterol levels, in addition to optimal levels of other lipids -- such as HDL, LDL, Triglycerides and Homocysteine levels. This Is exactly why CholesLo™ was formulated.

    Why Most People Use CholesLo™

    1. You did a blood test, your cholesterol levels were elevated and your doctor had advised you to lower it, to help avoid the possibility of a heart attack or stroke.
    2. You may have a family history of heart disease... Or someone has had a heart attack or stroke. So you must take action and get proactive to help improve this aspect of your health!
    3. You do NOT want to take prescription drugs. Even though these drugs are known for many, many negative side-effects (diabetes, muscle pain, arthritis, memory loss, high blood pressure, liver damage and many more) doctors still quickly prescribe them because it's an "easy", short-term solution. But not a healthy, long-term option.
    4. You've tried making changes in your diet and exercise and the improvements just haven't been very significant, so you need to do something else.
    5. You want something that's natural, that is verified to work and it's safe for long-term daily use.
    6. You want something simple, easy and convenient.

    A healthy life-style is the key to a health body. This includes natural foods, daily exercise and proper supplementation to give your body the specific nutrients it needs, to help heal itself from within.

  • What results can I see or feel?

    What you will see, is improved blood profile and lipids in your blood test. This can happen in as little as 30-days. Some people require longer usage to get to their ideal blood level goal. We are all different and thus, results always vary from one person to another.

    For example, my dad only needs to take 2 CholesLo™ pills daily and saw great results. Yet, my mom needs 5 daily. Her levels weren't as high as my dad and she weighs much less. We can't control our genetics, so there is some initial testing.

    What people typically feel is more energy and improved mood. People have also reported better blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Improved sleep is also felt in many users.

    What You Will NOT Feel

    Unlike prescription statin drugs, you will NOT have to deal with negative side-effects, such as muscle pain, dry skin, elevated liver enzymes, lowered libido, memory loss, joint pain, arthritis, elevated blood sugar, depression and other harmful side-effects associated with these drugs.

    This is very important, especially as we get older. This is why I formulate CholesLo™ for my parents back in 1998, to get them OFF of the harmful statin drugs and utilize natural herbs and vitamins.

  • Why happens if I stop taking CholesLo?

    CholesLo™ isn't a drug and we're not here to create a "dependency" or addiction like the drugs companies try to do. Our goal is to give your body the specific "nutrients" it needs to help heal itself from within.

    We don't want to "mask" the problem, the way drugs do.

    By giving your body what it needs and repairing & cleansing your liver, your body will naturally improve your lipid levels from within

    YOU'RE In Charge!

    Many CholesLo™ users simply go on a lower "maintenance" dose once they reach their target cholesterol levels.

    In either case, and whatever you decide to do - you're in charge. There are NO negative rebound effect if you decide to go off (UNLIKE a drug) and it's safe for long-term daily use - especially since it helps cleanse your liver!

    Just think of of CholesLo™ as a "daily vitamin for your heart"

  • Is CholesLo safe to take? Are there any side-effects?

    CholesLo™ contains natural ingredients and is completely free of gluten, dairy, wheat, soy, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, and peanuts. It also contains NO sugar and NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors or preservatives. CholesLo™ contains no GMO ingredients and it’s 100% vegetarian-friendly because we use only Veggie-capsules. 

    CholesLo™ has a 19+ proven track record because the formula utilizes scientifically researched ingredients, backed by clinical data. Every ingredient comes with a Certificate of Analysis and is manufactured in the US, under strict GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) & NSF (third-party certification) regulations.

    The only report we've had is from users who have sensitive stomachs and prefer to take CholesLo™ with food, rather than an empty stomach. When using any new product, it's best to first start at a lower dosage, see how your body reacts and then increase the dosage. If you have any concerns, you should consult your physician before taking this or any product.

  • I don't want to take prescription drugs - will CholesLo work just as well?

    You're smart because prescription cholesterol reduction drugs are known to have many short and long-term negative side-effects. These drugs are very powerful and thus, they work very well. Unfortunately, the also have numerous negative side-effects such as muscle pain, dry skin, elevated liver enzymes, lowered libido, memory loss, joint pain, arthritis, elevated blood sugar, depression and other harmful side-effects.

    These drugs were originally designed for people who had VERY high cholesterol primarily due to genetics. People who had tried all other methods (diet, exercise, supplements) and nothing worked. Thus, they were designed to be used as a LAST option. Unfortunately these days, they are quickly prescribed as the FIRST option.

    Another problem with the prescription drugs is they can lower your cholesterol TOO much, which is NOT what you want because cholesterol helps create many important "youth" hormones in your body.

    CholesLo™ VS Prescription Drugs

    Prescription statin drugs can lower your total cholesterol by as much as you want, as long as you keep increasing the dosage. Unfortunately, the higher the dosage, the more devastating the negative side-effects become.

    CholesLo™ helps create healthy cholesterol levels, naturally - from within. It's designed to work WITH your body, unlike drugs which work AGAINST your body.

    CholesLo™ has additional benefits that prescription drugs don't have because CholesLo™ also helps support healthy lipid levels for HDL, LDL, Homocysteine and Triglyceride levels. Prescription statin drugs do NOT help with all of these additional benefits.

    Finally, CholesLo™ contains 3 powerful liver cleansers. This is important because about 80% of your cholesterol is formed in your liver. Unfortunately, as we age our livers become weaker and more toxic (prescription drugs, alcohol, pollutants, pesticides, etc.) and thus, your liver is unable to "cleanse" excess cholesterol out of your blood.

    As you can see, CholesLo™ is designed for total health, safe for short and long-term usage.

  • Can using CholesLo™ prevent heart disease, a heart attack or stroke?

    No, CholesLo™ does not treat, cure, or prevent any disease, including heart disease.

    We don't believe any ONE solution can prevent a disease, this includes drugs or supplements. True health comes from an improvement in your life-style, which includes wholesome natural foods, daily exercise, proper rest and stress management and the use of specific supplementation for what your body may be lacking.

    There are no shortcuts or magic solutions in life. Success comes from doing the right things, on a daily basis.

  • Is CholesLo™ approved by the FDA?

    The FDA oversees all food and drug products. Since CholesLo™ is a natural product, it falls under the scope of the FDA. In 1994, the FDA set up guidelines for dietary supplements, and then created the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA). We follow all of DSHEA's guidelines. In addition, All our products are manufactured under current GMP standards as defined by the FDA to guarantee the highest degree of consistency, reliability, and potency.

    Please keep in mind that CholesLo™ does not treat, cure, or prevent any disease, such as heart disease.

  • How is CholesLo™ shipped? And do you ship Internationally?

    We ship USPS - ground or Priority Mail for domestic orders. Orders take 2-5 business days to deliver, based on your shipping selection.

    Yes, we also ship Internationally using USPS/EMS. Internationally orders take 7-14 business days to deliver. Express shipment is also available upon request for an additional fee.

  • Can I take this while on a "statin" or other cholesterol lowering drugs?

    Yes you can, however you will most likely need to eventually lower the dosage of your prescription drug, since CholesLo™ will also be doing a lot of the work. This will obviously reduce the negative side-effects from the drugs, since a lower dosage will be needed. Of course, the end goal is to eventually get off and stop using the harmful prescription drugs.

    However, you should never change the dosage of your medication or stop using it, until you speak to your doctor. If you have any concerns, you should consult your physicians before taking any supplement

  • I'm currently on a cholesterol lowering drug and I want to stop using it, how?

    Many people who contact us want to go the "natural" way and not use drugs because of the numerous negative side-effects. So they utilize CholesLo™ because it's herbal and doesn't have the drug side-effects.

    Legally, ethically and morally we cannot tell you to stop using your drug and you should always speak to you doctor first before making any changes to your current medications and dosages.

    What Other People Have Done

    Over the years we've had hundreds and thousands of people report back to us the success they've had by using CholesLo™ instead of their prescription drug or in addition to, while lowering the dosage of their drug. Either way, the end result is less drugs and negative side-effects. And many people have done so with the assistance of their doctor.

    With that said, here's what other users have reported back to us, who were currently taking prescription drugs and wanted to utilize CholesLo™.

    1. Start using CholesLo slowly.
      Week 1 = 1 capsule daily
      Week 2 = 2 capsules daily (1 in morning and 1 in afternoon)
      Week 3 = 3 capsules daily (2 in morning and 1 in afternoon)
      Week 4 = 4 capsules daily (2 in morning and 2 in afternoon)

      A this point, you can being taking the general recommended dosages, which is 4 daily.
    2. Slowly lower your prescription drug (but don't get off)
      Depending on your dosage and duration, you'll should slowly lower your drug dosage. The higher the dose, the longer the duration, the more time needed to lower the dosage.

      For example, if you are taking 40 mgs of Lipitor daily for 10 years (which is a high dose and long duration), then you'll need to take a 3-6 months to SLOWLY lower the the dose. Versus if you've been on 10 mgs for only 3 months... which is low dose and you can probably just get off quickly.

      So, it's very difficult to give specific advice here. Needless to say, slowly lower the dosage over the next few weeks, but don't get off completely. Lower the dose to about HALF and then do another blood test in 3-6 months. If your numbers are good, then take another 3 months and cycle OFF the drug.

      NOTE: The slower you lower your drug dosage, the better and safer it is.

    WARNING: "Rebound" Effect

    One reason you don't want to just get off a drug completely or too quickly, is because these drugs are "addictive" to the body and will cause a negative "rebound" effect. This means that if you get off these drugs, your cholesterol levels will SHOOT UP to super high levels and this can be very dangerous.

    Using CholesLo™ will help, but it can only do so much. That's why we've emphasized to "slowly" lower your dosage.


    What other users have reported back to us is that they have slowly add in CholesLo™ during the first 6-8 week time span and then slowly lowered their cholesterol drug dosage, but did NOT get off completely. Do a blood test in 5-6 months and if the numbers are good, then you may consider getting off the drugs completely.

    Of course, you should always consult with your doctor about all of this, so you can stay healthy and have proper blood work done throughout. It's best to work with your doctor, so you can find a healthy, long-term solution utilizing natural options.

  • I'm taking other cholesterol lowering supplements (ie: CoQ10, Red Yeast), can I stop taking them?

    For lowering cholesterol and improving your lipids, we believe that CholesLo™ is all that you need. However, taking additional CoQ10 is always a good idea for extra energy, longevity and better health - especially if you're over the age of 40. So it doesn't hurt to continue taking more CoQ10. I personally take an additional 50-100 mgs of CoQ10 daily because of the numerous health benefits.

    However, it's best to first take CholesLo™, get your desired results WITHOUT changing anything else in your life and THEN, once you've achieved the proper cholesterol and lipid numbers, then consider removing other supplements. If you add in CholesLo™ and then remove the other supplements at the same time, and something changes - you don't know WHAT caused what, because there were too many changes and variables.

  • Can I take CholesLo™ while taking my other prescription drugs?

    This is a very general question since there are hundreds and thousands of prescription drugs. We've never had reports of any negative interactions with any drug or supplement. However, when starting ANY new product (supplement, natural or drug), you should always start at a lower dosage and see how you react. If no problems, then slowly increase the dosage to the recommended usage.

    You should also consult with your doctor because they have your medical history and should be able to give you proper advice and suggestions.

  • Does CholesLo cause muscle pain or damage, like statin drugs do?

    NO it does not. However, if you do have muscle pain - then it is an indication that your body requires additional CoQ10. Please add in an additional 100mgs - 200mgs daily of CoQ10 daily. Ubiquinol version would be best, since it is better absorbed.

  • CholesLo really worked for me, but why don't doctors prescribe this?

    Actually, many doctors do - one of them being my mom's cardiologist. Granted, it took him FOUR YEARS of positive blood work results with my mom, to finally become a believer that something natural can actually work as well, or better than a drug and have NO negative side-effects. He now regular stocks his office with CholesLo™ for his patients, rather than prescribing a statin drug.

    However, this demonstrates a "problem" with Western medicine in that they don't know much about "natural alternatives". Medical school relies heavily on drugs and surgery. At the MOST there is only 1 semester or a couple of classes on integrative medicine and natural alternatives.

    So, you can't even blame the doctors - they were never taught much about non-drug remedies, life-style changes, nutrition, exercise and herbal solutions.

    Finally, doctors make their income prescribing drugs and doing surgery. So, they have no incentive offering natural remedies because you wouldn't need the doctor anymore. Because doctors have such busy schedules, drugs are a "quick and easy" solution for them to see the patient, prescribe a drug and get them out of the door and see the next patient.

    Most doctors mean well, but the medical industry (pharmaceutical and insurance companies) have made it very difficult for doctors to really help a patient. The good news is that things ARE improving because of all the negative side-effects associated with drugs, but it's a slow process.

  • Your products work great, can I combine it with other ones, such as Blood Flow Optimizer?

    Yes, there are no interactions between any of our products and CholesLo™. They are all safe to take with each other. We put extra care and attention to this.

    In regards to Blood Flow Optimizer™, it works very well with CholesLo™ and the two should actually be used together for maximum heart health and longevity.

    CholesLo™ is formulated to support healthy lipid levels and promote healthy cholesterol levels.

    Blood Flow Optimizer™ is designed to improve circulation and blood flow. It helps remove plaque and calcium build-up from your arteries and veins. It helps support proper clotting and promotes stronger and more flexible blood vessels. Many use Blood Flow Optimizer™ as a safe alternative to Plavix and Aspirin - even thought it does a lot more than these "blood thinning" drugs.

    Together these two products help promote healthy lipids and blood flow, thus helping to promote a healthier environment for your hearth.

  • Can I buy this in a regular store?

    At the current time, no. CholesLo™ is found exclusively online and primarily at this website. This is because we can offer the best price, since you're purchasing direct from the manufacturer.

    CholesLo's formula uses very high quality and expensive ingredients. Organic, vegetarian, Non-GMO, Soy Free, Gluten Free and is scientifically tested. Thus, our cost of manufacturing is much higher than the average supplement or any other "cholesterol lowering" product.

    It would be hard to compete with other products in stores because CholesLo™ would retail at $79.99 to $89.99... Which would prohibit the use by many people because of the higher price.

    Our goal is to help people and by purchasing CholesLo™ directly from us, we can give a large discount since there is no additional "retail" markup. This allows us to help more people improve their heart's health.

  • Is it gluten free, soy free, organic and/or Non-GMO?

    Yes to all of this and CholesLo™ is also manufactured in USA. It costs us more, but since our own family and friends also take our products, we want to make sure that it's of the best quality.

    Made in USA Gluten free Vegetarian Non GMO Additive and filler free
