Family History of Heart Disease BUT News to Shout About

The following story is shared by Nedra Sahr, MS, CNS, about Ruth Barnes blood results, before and after the August launch of Cholesterol Reduction Complex.  One power of Omega Guard is that it reduces inflammation in the body, which is a cause for so many diseases.

 “Ruth Barnes, an experienced Shaklee leader, got a quadruple genetic whammy from her parents and grandparents.  Her father died of a heart attack at age 60, and her mother struggled with angina all her adult life. Ruth never knew grandparents; they all died young of heart disease. Ruth was aware of her genetic risk and has pursued a healthy diet and Shaklee supplement program for years.

Her cardiologists have told her that her pro-active strategies have definitely kept her alive.  Four years ago, she had to have 4 stents put in 2 arteries after a triple-by-pass did not work as well as they had hoped.  Even after this, Ruth’s ejection fraction measure, the measure of blood pumped out of the ventricles with each heart beat, was in the 35% range.  Healthy levels are 55-75%.  She increased her Omega Guard from 6 to 12 per day.  Many of you would say, “Isn’t that dangerous?  Isn’t she over-dosing”?

Quite the opposite…Her ejection fraction measurement in July of this year was 76%.  Her cardiologist was truly impressed and very supportive of her supplement routine.

Ruth gave him even more reason to be impressed this week when she had her cholesterol levels checked.  She has been on Cholesterol Reduction Complex since late August.  Her LDL cholesterol levels dropped a whopping 14.9% with a 15% increase in the HDL’s.  Her cardiologist felt that her HDL increase was the most impressive. He said, ‘I haven’t seen anyone increase their HDL levels to this degree. . . ever.’

Remember the main function of HDL’s is to soak up excess cholesterol from the walls of the blood vessels and transport them to the liver where they are broken down and then moved to the intestines where they are bound with bile and removed from the body. There is a corollary function of Cholesterol Reduction Complex;  it has to do with the LDL cholesterol.  Ruth’s LDL levels dropped because the sterols and stanols in the Cholesterol Reduction Complex keep the cholesterol in the intestines so they are bound with bile from the liver and removed from the body.  Ruth is so excited she said she’d like to go out on the street and shout the good news.  Perhaps we can help!

Do you know someone who has high levels of cholesterol?   Would you be willing to speak with them? On medication or not on medication, they simply take 2 CR Complex with two meals each day.   Then get their results checked in 3 months.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they could work with their doctor to reduce their medications after lowering their cholesterol levels? And wouldn’t you feel good knowing you helped someone to better health?”
