CholestOff Complete is a nutritional supplement designed to lower dietary and genetic cholesterol
CholestOff Complete is developed by Pharmavite, a very popular American company and sold under the Nature Made brand. Nature Made is one of the best known brands of supplements and marketed as the first nutritional supplements line to obtain the USP certification (which sets the quality standards in the nutritional supplements field). This program establishes if the verified product contains potent amounts of the active ingredients and the amounts of contaminants are within normal ranges so that the formula is both effective and safe. The program also guarantees that the tested supplement has been produced according to FDA’s Good Quality Practices. Pharmavite manufactures and retails more than 200 different nutritional supplements within the U.S. territory and internationally. The company produces a total number of 4 brands: Nature Made, Vitamin ID, SOYJOY, and Voots.
CholestOff Complete consists in a mixture of Reducol, a proprietary blend of plant extracts (phytsterols) and Pantesin, a derivate of the vitamin B5. The ingredients work together to reduce the absorption of dietary cholesterol into the bloodstream (Reducol), and to lower the production of cholesterol in the liver (Pantesin). CholestOff Complete is addressed to people who suffer from a variety of conditions caused by high cholesterol levels (such as heart disease) who are interested in reducing the symptoms.
CholestOff Complete Ingredients
CholestOff Complete contains the following ingredients: Plant sterols/stanols (Pine Tree), Sunflower Oil Esters, Gelatin, Pantethine, Glycerin, Medium Chain Triglycerides, Water, Soy Lecithin, and Colors Added.
CholestOff Complete is a vitamin and herbal based dietary supplement.
Plant sterols and stanols are substances naturally found in grains, fruits, legumes, seeds, and vegetables. They are believed to have powerful properties of lowering cholesterol levels (LDL). This is the main reason why many manufacturers from the food industry have added these plant based extracts to their products. They have a molecular structure very similar to that of cholesterol and block the absorption of real cholesterol in the bloodstream. Human studies support the claimed benefits of sterols in significantly reducing LDL cholesterol levels. The FDA also offered the products fortified with stanols and sterols the status “health claim,” thus recognizing their benefits.
Products containing sterols and stanols are usually advertised as beneficial on the heart due to their ability of preventing cholesterol absorption in the bloodstream. This prevents the depositing of fats in the arteries and the narrowing of the vessels which would eventually lead to a poor oxygenation of the heart causing heart disorders.
Pantesin is an active form of B5 vitamin that is advertised to provide an effective support for a healthy heart. Recent human studies support the benefits in reducing LDL, maintaining balanced cholesterol and blood lipid levels.
Nature Made CholestOff Complete is advertised to provide the additional amount of sterols and stanols needed in a healthy diet as recommended by The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP). It is claimed to lack artificial flavors, preservatives, yeast, starch, or gluten. The coloring comes from natural sources only.
The recommended use is three soft-gels two times daily, taken with a glass of liquid during the largest meals.

CholestOff Complete dietary supplement is advertised as a proprietary blend of herbal extracts combined with a vitamin based extract that work in synergy to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
The active ingredients have been widely researched and shown to be effective. Although the formula itself has not been involved in scientific research, consumers are generally satisfied with the product. It is claimed to contain carefully selected ingredients processed using strict manufacturing technologies to ensure the highest purity and effectiveness. CholestOff Complete is addressed to adults suffering from cholesterol problems but may interact with Statin drugs, which are also used to lower cholesterol levels.
However, the formula is not FDA approved and in this case a professional’s opinion should be asked before using it.
