Scientific Background

Plasma Cholesterol levels are defined by the amount produced by the body and the amount assumed through the diet. Cholesterol is absorbed in the intestine, transported to the liver and then released into the bloodstream. Cholesterol trafficking is mainly regulated by two classes of lipoproteins: low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which deliver cholesterol to the cells and are involved in atherosclerotic processes  and high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which remove cholesterol from cells and raised levels of circulating HDL are associated with decreasing accumulation of atherosclerotic plaques.

When cholesterol levels are significantly higher than physiological levels, conditions such as hypercholesterolaemia may occur, leading to negative effects on the well-being of the body.

Hypercholesterolemia represents a risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease and other metabolic disorders.

Keeping cholesterol levels under physiological levels is important to avoid issues related to hypercholesterolemia.

Clinical Studies

Antilip formula is clinically tested Panminerva Med. 2010 Jun;52(2 Suppl 1):15-9

Patents

Antilip is covered by patents in Italy (1373986), in the EU (EP1996207), in the USA (US9050356), in Japan (JP5557451) and in Mexico (MX2008011289).

The incidence of metabolic disorders has significantly increased worldwide, leading to a global epidemic of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs), obesity and diabetes. The WHO has estimated that CVDs are one of the main causes of death globally, and experimental evidences linked Oxidative Stress (OS) to CVDs, since OS promotes in a “vicious cycle”, endothelial dysfunction, leading to CVDs exacerbation. Specific, synergic and harmonic formula are required to concurrently address the main aspects of OS. To identify which pool of antioxidants have to be supplemented with the diet is a relevant aspect, since inappropriate supplementation can result in damages or inefficacy.

Properties and Indications

Antilip is a clinically tested food supplement containing low molecular weight Polyglucosamine, Phytosterols and Monacolines. Its specificity is linked to its unique composition. Vitamin C contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and it supports the collagen formation, which contributes to the normal function of blood vessels.* Polyglucosamine (Chitosan) is a natural fiber that is obtained from the shells of marine crustaceans, endowed with special features that reduce intestinal reabsorption of cholesterol and fatty acids. Phytosterols are natural substances found in plants with a cholesterol-like structure that can contribute to the overall reduction of cholesterol absorption.
