Genestra Col-Sterol 60sgsRegular price $31.75 Save $-31.75
Col-Sterol is a blend of plant sterol esters that helps to decrease total and LDL cholesterol levels. Plant sterols have a similar structure to cholesterol but differ in their side-chain groups.
Plant sterol intake leads to a continuous cycle of decreased dietary cholesterol absorption, increased cholesterol use for bile acid synthesis, decreased bile acid reabsorption, and increased cholesterol excretion in the feces. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with 1.3g of sterol esters daily for four weeks decreased total cholesterol and LDL levels by approximately 5 and 4%, respectively, in 16 hypercholesterolemic adults.

AOR Red Yeast RiceRegular price $39.95 Save $-39.95
Red Yeast Rice (RYR) has been used in food and traditional medicine for thousands of years in China for cardiovascular support. An extract from RYR has been fermented with the yeast Monascus purpureus, which creates compounds that have been clinically shown to inhibit the production of cholesterol in the liver.
Unlike many other red yeast rice supplements on the market, AOR’s Red Yeast Rice with Ankascin 568-R is subjected to a patented extraction process that removes citrinin, a toxic by-product of the fermentation process. Most RYR products on the market also contain monacolin K, a compound that is associated with side effects similar to statin drugs. These side effects can include myopathy, muscle pain and weakness, and rhabdomyolysis, a condition in which muscle fibres break down, releasing harmful substances into the bloodstream which can affect the liver and kidneys.
- Provides antioxidants for optimal health
- Toxin-free statin alternative
- Guaranteed free from monacolin K and statin-associated side effects
- Free from toxic byproduct citrinin

Healthology Soluble Fibre Blend 210 grRegular price $21.99 Save $-21.99
Fibre is the part of plant material that our bodies can’t break down and use as a fuel source, but it plays a very important role in our digestive pathway and is crucial to our overall health. There are two types of fibre: soluble and insoluble.
Insoluble fibre does not completely break down and is left intact as “roughage” as it moves through the digestive tract. Think of it like the fibrous parts of celery.
Soluble fibre, as the name suggests, dissolves in water and it becomes a gel-like substance in our digestive system. It is found in beans, seeds, lentils, oats, barley and some fruits and vegetables. Think of it like the sticky consistency of oatmeal: the gel-like matrix slows digestion to provide a variety of health benefits.
- Weight management: Keeps us feeling full for longer to curb appetite, reduce sugar cravings, and prevent some fats from being absorbed.
- Lowers cholesterol: Reduces the amount of cholesterol that is absorbed from food and helps the body to eliminate cholesterol through the colon.
- Stabilizes blood sugar: Slows down the speed at which we break down and absorb sugars, preventing a dramatic spike and crash of blood sugar, and instead slowly and evenly releasing sugars into the bloodstream. This reduces our risk of type 2 diabetes and obesity, and also helps us maintain energy and mental clarity throughout the day.
- Reduces heart disease risk: lowering cholesterol, stabilizing blood sugar and assisting with weight management contribute to reducing the risk of heart disease.
- Promotes healthy gut flora: Acts as a food source to healthy bacteria in the colon, helping to nourish a healthy gut environment.
According to Canadian guidelines, women need 25g of fibre per day and men need 38g per day, with 25% of this coming from soluble fibre. However, the typical North American diet contains less than half the daily recommended intake of fibre2. Even if we are aware of benefits and sources of fibre in the diet, it is still challenging to get enough each day.
SOLUBLE FIBRE BLEND provides 5 grams of soluble fibre from a Certified Organic, non-GMO blend of Baobab and Acacia fibres that help to manage weight, lower cholesterol, reduce heart disease risk, and promote healthy digestion. It does not contain artificial sweeteners, colours, sugars, or additives, and is less likely to cause constipation than psyllium-containing formulas. SOLUBLE FIBRE BLEND provides a natural food source of fibre in an easy-to-consume form that helps us to supplement our daily soluble fibre intake.

AOR Total ERegular price $52.95 Save $-52.95
Vitamin E is primarily an antioxidant and is one of five members of the body’s antioxidant network. It is often used to help keep skin healthy and youthful, protecting it against UV damage and helping to heal wounds. Vitamin E also has many benefits for heart health. Vitamin E is not just one molecule, but a complex of eight different “vitamers” (four tocopherols and four tocotrienols). The benefits of all eight members of the vitamin E family cannot be ignored. For example, gamma-tocopherol and gamma-tocotrienol may be involved in helping to regulate blood pressure. In addition, people with low gamma-tocopherol have been found to have a higher incidence of prostate problems and cognitive decline.
People who supplement with regular vitamin E that contains only alpha-tocopherol (or one of the synthetic variations) should consider switching to a natural, full-spectrum vitamin E. Those who need antioxidant, skin health and cholesterol support may benefit from taking Total E™.
- Contains all eight E-complex vitamers
- High in tocotrienols and gamma-tocopherol
- Powerful antioxidant, cardiovascular and cellular support
- Promotes healthy, youthful skin

AOR Cholesterol Control 60 VCapsRegular price $47.95 Save $-47.95
With the rise in incidence of cardiovascular events such as strokes and heart attacks causative factors have been more widely investigated. There are many lifestyle factors that can contribute to cardiovascular health, particularly diet. Consumption of highly processed, high fat, low fiber, sugary foods have been linked to increased total cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, and blood sugar. These three levels have been directly linked as risk factors for the development of diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, heart disease.
As such these are often the targets for treatment as well as prophylaxis. While cholesterol is necessary for a number of physiologic processes in the body, excessive amounts can be detrimental by causing atherosclerosis. Individuals with high cholesterol can reduce overall cholesterol by diet and lifestyle changes as well as drugs or supplements that reduce production or increased excretion of cholesterol. Further the ratio of HDL: LDL is important when discussing cholesterol related risk.
Cholesterol found within the low density lipoprotein (LDL-c) along with excess triglycerides can cause the formation of plaques in blood vessels. This can then lead to narrowing of arteries and oxygen deprivation to certain tissues. However, high density lipoproteins scavenger the blood and tissues for free cholesterol and take it back to the liver for excretion. Glucose dysregulation can shift the ratio towards LDL, and can also increase vascular damage. Traditional treatments aim to stop the production of cholesterol in the liver by inhibiting the key enzyme HMG-CoA reductase. However this approach does not increase HDL to remove the excess cholesterol already present, it does not address the glucose dysregulation, further there are many downstream products also inhibited which can cause significant side effects. Therefore a multi-targeted approach would be most beneficial.
Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) found in Cholesterol Control is a citrus fruit found in the coastal Calabrian region of Italy. Bergamot contains diverse and highly concentrated flavonoid profile, making it very beneficial for a number of cardiovascular processes. The polyphenols in bergamot contain properties common to other citrus flavonoids, ie. antioxidant properties. Some of the flavonoids in bergamot have a similar mechanism of action as classic treatment used by cholesterol lowering drugs, with the other flavonoids providing added benefit of also increasing HDL to scavenge free cholesterol. Further, its antioxidant properties can prevent inflammation associated with vascular damage, making this supplement effective in managing the risks associated with cardiovascular concerns.
- Maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, through reduction of total cholesterol, LDL, and triglyceride, and increases in HDL
- Flavonoids found in bergamot provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support for healthy blood vessels

AOR CurcuVIVA 60 VCapsRegular price $49.95 Save $-49.95
CurcuVIVA™ provides an 80 mg maintenance dose of Longvida Optimized Curcumin for those with osteoarthritis, joint pain, chronic pain and more. Longvida Curcumin was specially formulated to provide a solution to the curcumin conundrum of low bioavailability, poor absorption and rapid breakdown. Although bioavailability and absorption help determine effectiveness, the key lies within its ability to remain free. This free state of curcumin is achieved due to the formula’s ability to avoid being rapidly broken down within the body. Because free curcumin retains its “unbroken” form, it is then taken up through the lymph system into the bloodstream where it is stable, concentrated, and retains maximum effectiveness for up to 24 hours.
Curcumin not only provides relief from joint pain and arthritis, but has many other benefits. It supports digestion, liver and gallbladder health, carries antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects, and even promotes healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.
- Allows slow breakdown by the body
- Mild dose-optimized curcumin from turmeric
- Remains in the bloodstream for up to 24 hours

Healthology Cholesto-Less 60 SgsRegular price $38.99 Save $-38.99
We often think of cholesterol as being harmful, but the truth is that our bodies need an adequate amount of it to function. Cholesterol is used as a building block to make everything from the walls of our cells to important hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and cortisol. It is essential for the production of Vitamin D, which we need to build and maintain strong bones. It is also a central component of bile, which allows us to break down and digest fats from food.
However, the typical North American diet contains far too many foods that increase our cholesterol levels above and beyond what our bodies can use. Excess total cholesterol and LDL “bad” cholesterol will stick to the walls of our blood vessels, narrowing the space for blood to flow. This prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching vital organs. Most dangerously, it can prevent oxygen from getting to the heart or brain, increasing our risk for heart attack and stroke .
Having high cholesterol is like having construction along a busy highway that narrows lanes and slows down traffic. If the construction closes the highway altogether, we never make it to our destination and there are negative consequences. This is what happens when cholesterol narrows our blood vessels and blocks blood flow to major organs: oxygen and nutrients don’t make it to their destination, and it results in organ and tissue damage.
CHOLESTO-LESS, is formulated to lower total cholesterol and LDL “bad” cholesterol and raise HDL “good” cholesterol to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. It also supports overall cardiovascular health with the addition of the powerful antioxidant, ubiquinol (Active CoQ10). Having healthy cholesterol levels supports cardiovascular health, helping to prevent life-threatening illnesses such as heart attack and stroke.
CHOLESTO-LESS helps maintain and support cardiovascular health by lowering total blood and LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
