폴리코사놀의 효과 : 진실 혹은 거짓?
쿠바는 90년대부터 국민의 건강을 위해 천연 건강식품 개발에 노력을 기울였고 그 결과로 폴리코사놀을 비롯한 각종 천연물을 개발하여 국민들에게 나누어주었습니다. 그 덕분에 지금의 쿠바는 전세계적으로 장수국가로 불리우고 있습니다.
쿠바국립과학연구소의 임살실험에 따르면 폴리코사놀을 하루에 5~10m 정도의 양을 3년동안 꾸준히 복용을 하였더니 좋은 콜레스트롤(HDL)의 수치가 최대 29%까지 증가하였고 반대로 나쁜 콜레스트롤(LDL)의 수치는 12~26%까지 낮아졌다고 합니다. 폴리코사놀의 복용량을 늘리면 단기간에 효과를 볼 수 있는 약으로도 사용될 수 있으며 쿠바에서는 이미 그렇게 처방을 하고 있다고 합니다.
다른 임상실험에서는 폴리코사놀의 효과가 있다 혹은 없다로 상반된 결과가 나오고 있어 논란이 되기도 합니다. 사실 비타민도 건강에 도움이 되지 않는다는 실험결과도 꾸준히 나오고 있기에 건강식품류는 효과 논란은 피할 수 없는 것 같습니다.
폴리코사놀은 안전한 식품으로 취급받고는 있지만 그래도 몇가지 부작용이 있습니다. 먼저 장기로 복용할 경우 코엔자임 Q10의 수치를 감소시키기도 하고 과하게 섭취 시 근육떨림, 손발저림, 만성피로 등이 생길 수 있습니다. 제품 구입 시 반드시 정해진 용법대로 섭취하여 부작용이 생기는 일이 없도록 해야 할 것입니다.
저는 아이허브에서 폴리코사놀 제품을 구매하고 있습니다. 국내에서 제조하는 건강식품은 해외제품에 비해 가격이 몇배나 비싸고 성분 함량조차 미달인 제품도 흔해서 섣불리 구매하지 않습니다. 게다가 건강식품은 약이 아닌 음식으로서 꾸준히 먹어야하는데 지나치게 비싸면 한두달 먹어보다가 그만 구매하게 되더군요. 현명하고 합리적인 판단을 하여 구매하시기 바랄게요 🙂
Policosanol is a cholesterol-lowering natural mix of plant alcohols made from the purified wax of sugar-cane leaves. Produced primarily in Cuba since the 1990s, Policosanol is used today in more than 25 countries.
In excess of 50 clinical trials support its effectiveness. The primary benefit is the reduction of blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad cholesterol”) and elevation of high-density lipoprotein (HDL or “good cholesterol”) among healthy volunteers with a variety of pre-existing health conditions: high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes with high cholesterol, post-menopausal women with high cholesterol and patients with abnormal liver function. By reducing LDL, Policosanol also plays a role in preventing the build-up of fats that narrow and obstruct blood vessels causing coronary artery disease (CAD).
Clinical studies also suggest that Policosanol may have antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Policosanol appears to inhibit the formation of platelets, thereby preventing them from clotting and sticking to the walls of the heart’s main arteries. This is an important contribution to our understanding of heart health in light of emerging science that relates CAD to an inflammatory response in the body. Coronary specialists are increasingly intrigued by the finding that inflammation leads to the development of “soft” plaque, an aggregation of many kinds of cells, including fat, that is covered with a thin lining.
If stress causes the inflamed lining to rupture, the cellular contents enter the bloodstream while the body mounts a “clotting” response to the injury. The clotted cells, however, can stick to the artery walls, causing an obstruction.
While no significant side effects have emerged in Policosanol research, it is important to always consult a health-care practitioner before taking any natural health product to determine the risk of adverse reactions due to pre-existing health conditions or the interaction with other medications.
Lower Your Cholesterol
Heart disease, including stroke, is a leading cause of death in Canada. It is the number one cause of hospitalization, and costs the health-care system $18.5 billion annually—more than any other disease. Hypercholesterolemia, or high cholesterol, is a leading contributor to heart disease. High cholesterol levels can lead to atherosclerosis, a thickening of the walls of the arteries, which are the major blood vessels carrying oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the heart and brain. High cholesterol can also contribute to increased platelet aggregation, or blood clotting. When a clot is carried by the blood through a narrowed artery, it can get stuck and impede blood flow, or stop it entirely, causing heart attack or stroke. High cholesterol is particularly problematic among men over 40, post-menopausal women, and people suffering from obesity or diabetes. Many drugs have been formulated to lower cholesterol, most notably those in a class called “statin” drugs. But virtually all drugs have adverse effects, some so severe that many patients cannot tolerate them. This had led to a search for natural ways to lower cholesterol without adverse effects. In Cuba, research scientists have found that policosanol, which is derived from a wax extracted from sugar cane, is more effective in improving cholesterol levels than many of the statin drugs, without adverse effects.
How it Helps
The word “cholesterol” suggests that cholesterol is just one thing. In fact, there are several different kinds of cholesterol. LDL and VLDL cholesterol are “bad” cholesterol: they clog arteries. HDL is “good” cholesterol: we need it to stay healthy. A lipid, or fat, associated with cholesterol is triglycerides (TG). All of these types of cholesterol together make up total cholesterol (TC). Numerous studies have demonstrated that policosanol inhibits synthesis of LDL and increases the rate at which it is processed. It also supports increased levels of HDL. Studies of men and women, people with hypercholesterolemia alone or in combination with obesity, type II diabetes, and/or hypertension (high blood pressure) have demonstrated that 5 to 20 mg daily of policosanol daily can lower TC and LDL cholesterol and increase HDL significantly. Some of these studies have taken place over as much as three years, showing that the cholesterol-lowering effects of policosanol are not only sustained over the long term, but significantly increased. In some patients, policosanol also appears to support reduced hypertension, or blood pressure.
Policosanol and other cholesterol-lowering agents
In studies that compared policosanol with statin drugs, policosanol has persistently outperformed all but one of the statin drugs: Atorvastatin. However, Atorvastatin causes significant adverse effects in many patients, including negative effects on liver health. This interferes with patient compliance (the likelihood that patients will take the drug as prescribed) as well as trading off one aspect of health for another. Policosanol has few adverse effects and no effects on liver health. It does not appear to interact negatively with other drugs commonly taken by people who have health issues that are closely related to hypercholesterolemia, such as “beta-blockers,” which are potentially life-saving drugs taken by many heart patients. At least one study suggests that taking policosanol in combination with Omega 3 can support reduced triglyceride levels, the one aspect of lowering total cholesterol on which policosanol has only limited effect.
Other Important Points about BEC Policosanol
Many studies support a role for policosanol in improving intermittent claudication, which is pain in the legs caused by atherosclerosis of the lower extremities. Several studies suggest that policosanol can decrease pain and increase walking distance in these patients, and that this improvement can be sustained over the long term.
