Natural Aids for Kidney and Cholesterol
Health Healthy cholesterol levels and well-functioning kidneys are very important for your overall health, and problems with either can lead to serious medical issues. Luckily, there are herbal and natural ways to lower cholesterol and promote healthy kidney function. Our products, Lipomezin and Renohelp, contain proprietary blends of the best of these herbs, vitamins and minerals to help you to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and normal kidney functions.*
Cholesterol is a fat-like substance that’s essential to your body’s functioning. However, when you have high cholesterol it can accumulate on your artery walls. High cholesterol can lead to heart disease and stroke, which are leading causes of death in the United States.1 Lipomezin contains several important natural ingredients that can help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels*.
One important tool for helping cholesterol levels is Red Yeast Rice Extract, which has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. Research has shown that “red yeast rice… can lower your total blood cholesterol level, your low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") cholesterol level and your triglyceride level.”2
Round-Head Lespedeza (Lespedeza capitata) is a flowering plant native to eastern North America. It was used medicinally by Native Americans, and is “reported to lower blood cholesterol levels...”3
Grape Seed is another important herbal tool for cholesterol health. A study at UC Davis showed that “grape seed extract lowered the blood pressure of patients...with high blood pressure.” Both systolic and diastolic blood pressure showed decreases.4
Policosanol is extracted from sugarcane, and can be important in maintaining healthy cholesterol. According to the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy, “In both clinical and animal studies, policosanol has been shown to significantly reduce levels of low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and total cholesterol…”5
With our proprietary blend of Red Yeast Rice Extract, Round-Head Lespedeza Extract, Grape Seed Extract and Policansonol, along with other minerals and vitamins, Lipomezin is a key part of maintaining a healthy cholesterol level, cardiovascular function and a healthy circulatory system.*
Your kidneys are important for helping your whole body functional properly and stay healthy. Chronic Kidney Disease can lead to gout, anemia, bone disease and heart disease.6 That’s why we offer Renohelp, which uses a proprietary blend of herbs, vitamins and minerals to maintain normal kidney functions.*
Vitamin E has been shown to slow kidney failure in some cases. According to research in Redox Report, “The ability of vitamin E to mitigate loss of kidney function… appears to be due to a combination of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.”7
Iron is a mineral that is necessary to create healthy red blood cells, and for overall health. Kidneys are involved in telling your body to create red blood cells, so iron helps kidneys function.8
Vitamin B-6 is also very important in kidney health. According to the Mayo Clinic, “People with kidney disease...are more likely to be vitamin B-6 deficient… For people with kidney diseases,... a vitamin B-6 supplement is often necessary.”9
Round-Head Lespedeza (Lespedeza capitata) is not only helpful for cholesterol issues, it also plays a role in maintaining healthy kidneys. In a case series based on the author’s practice published in Kidney Diseases, Eric Yarnell found that Round-Head Lespedeza, combined with other treatments, “may be of value and should be investigated further,” because every patient treated with it and other herbs had improved kidney health.10
Birch Leaf Extract, and the birch plant in general, have long been used as medicine, and can help kidney function in many ways. It is a diuretic that helps flush out kidneys, and is often prescribed to treat kidney infections.11
Red Bilberry (Vaccinium hirtum Thunb.) Extract is another natural kidney helper - “bilberry extract reduced the degree of... kidney damage” in a study on mice12, for example.
Renohelp contains our proprietary blend of all these natural kidney aides - Vitamin E, Iron, Vitamin B-6, Round-Head Lespedeza, Birth Leaf Extract and Red Bilberry Extract. Together, they are important in helping maintain normal kidney functions and overall health.*
