Thousands of people have high triglycerides as well as high cholesterol. It is estimated that up to 80 million Americans have some form of heart disease. The medical communities answer for this is Statin drugs such as Lipitor. I’ve talked to countless people who want to lower their cholesterol but can’t stand the side effects of the Statin drugs. Also many people don’t realize that Statin drugs deplete our bodies of CoQ10, this can be a recipe for disaster as CoQ10 is necessary for our hearts to function normally.
If you take statin drugs, I recommend you take a good quality CoQ10 supplement at the very least. If on the other hand you are looking to get off of statins or lower your cholesterol more naturally, I may have the answer.
Soy was given the approval of the American Heart Association to help with cardiovascular issues in 1999. The catch until now, was that it took 25 grams a day of good quality soy protein to get this benefit. Most people won’t take that much. Back in 1999 the active ingredient in soy that gives us those great benefits was discovered by a doctor Galvez. It seems the ingredient that is responsible for lowering our cholesterol is a soy peptide he named Lunasin. Which comes from the tagalong word for cure.
Dr. Galvez has partnered with the Missouri plant soy lab and a food science company to come up with a concentrated form of Lunasin available in a capsule that will give you the equivalent of 25 grams of high quality soy.
By looking at the pictures it is clear only a small amount of lunasin is needed to get great results. Since this new study. an even more concentrated type of Lunasin has been developed. It gets the same results with only 125 mg, or half the amount shown in the picture. Dr. Galvez has partnered with a food science company and calls this new concentrated form LunarichX.
Part of the reason there have been mixed reviews on soy is that people use genetically modified soy. The effects are either diminished or completely wiped out by using GMO soy. As evidenced by the pictures below, in 95 there was a reduction of 12.5% LDL with 25 grams of soy, yet in 2006 a study showed only 3% reduction with 50 grams. In 1995 GMO soy wasn’t as common as it became by 2006. Since Lunasin is the active ingredient and its effects are diminished by using GMO it is plain to see why they wanted to repeal the health claim of soy.
