National Cholesterol Education Program Guidelines recommend:
The diet should include these three steps:
1. Carbohydrates should come mainly from foods rich in complex carbohydrates. These include grains (especially from whole grains), fruits and vegetables.
2. Daily energy expenditure should include at least moderate physical activity (contributing about 200 Kcal a day).
3. Options include adding 10-25 grams of viscous (soluble) fiber, 2 gram/day of plant-derived sterols or stanols. Soy protein may be used as a replacement for some animal products.
*Bios Life is the only clinically proven, patented, natural formulation to deliver this combination of soluable fiber, plant sterols, and plant stanols in an easy to use, tasty and palatable product.
Note: High risk patients are those that have experienced a cardiovascular event, family history of cardiovascular disease or age.
