Can probiotics help with your cholesterol?

I have an old friend — let’s call him “Jeff”.

For the last three or four years, since entering his late fifties, Jeff has struggled to keep his cholesterol under control. And it’s had a terrible impact on his quality of life.

Here’s what I mean:

First of all, wherever Jeff goes, it’s always at the back of his mind.

“I’d give my left arm to enjoy a glass of wine again — but if I do, then maybe I won’t ever be able to get off these statins, and I’ll feel like I’ve been run over by a truck forever.”

He can’t take his wife out to restaurants anymore.

He can’t even share a hotdog with his grandson at the ballpark.

Even worse, though — Jeff lives in a state of constant fear.

Because, just like most of us when we get to a certain age, he’s seen several people he was close to get taken out by a heart attack or stroke. It’s terrifying.

So, Jeff walks around with this fear hanging around his neck.

That’s no way to live.

I wouldn’t wish that kind of fear on even my worst enemy.

Anyway — why are we talking about this?

There’s a good reason:

Over the last few days, I’ve been telling you about my RightBiotics Rx supplement — which I created because, frankly, I couldn’t find a probiotic that was good enough to give to my family.

You see, when it comes to probiotics, it’s not enough that your supplement contains the right species of bacteria. It has to contain the right strains — and at the right doses.

I spent more than two years sifting through stacks of clinical studies, and I found more than a dozen strains of probiotics that have been clinically proven (by means of controlled, double-blind trials) to: provide relief from gas, bloating, indigestion, stomach cramps, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, and other digestive discomforts… fortify your body’s immune defenses, especially against colds, flus, and upper respiratory infections… and help you “go” more often.

The only problem?

There wasn’t a probiotic supplement on the market that came anywhere close to including all of these strains. So I created my own instead — and now I, and my family, take it every day.

What does this have to do with my friend Jeff?

Well — since cholesterol is something I know a lot of people struggle to keep under control, people just like my friend Jeff — as I was sifting through all these studies, I kept a special eye out for any probiotic strains that have been clinically proven to help keep cholesterol down.

In fact, I found two specific strains:

  • Bacillus subtilis (DE111) — a team of four researches, based at the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse, found that people who took this probiotic strain had an easier time keeping their blood glucose levels and lipids within a healthy range, compared with other participants in the trial who took the placebo instead.
  • Bacillus coagulans (Lactospore) — there’s a clinical study which found that this particular strain reduced participants’ total blood cholesterol by 32% and LDL cholesterol by 35%.

Now, I know I’m preaching to the choir here.

Because if you’ve read any of the other emails I sent to you this week, then you already know the importance of what I’m about to share with you.

But it’s such a vital point, I’m going to beat this drum again.

The only way to get these benefits I just mentioned is to supplement your diet with the same specific strains used in the studies — not generic Bacillus subtilis or Bacillus coagulans.

If you want to keep your cholesterol at a healthy level, it’s not enough to just “take probiotics”, even if you supplement it with a healthy lifestyle and clean diet (like you absolutely should).

You need to take these specific strains of probiotics.

That’s why I created RightBiotics Rx.

In case you didn’t hear — we’re running a special promotion this week, but it ends on Sunday at midnight. We’re giving away a year’s supply of RightBiotics to five lucky winners.

If you want to put yourself in the running, here’s what you need to do:

Order a 30-day trial of RightBiotics today, or anytime before Sunday at midnight. (You could also order a three-month or six-month supply if you like — which represent even better value.)

First thing on Monday morning, we’ll put the name of everyone who ordered into a hat, so to speak, and we’re going to draw five random names. We’ll contact them by email.

Do you know what’s great about this competition?

Even if you don’t win the complimentary year’s supply of RIghtBiotics, you still stand to “win” all the health benefits we’ve spoke about this week. Because it’s the only probiotic supplement on the market — at least as far as I know — that gives you these same strains of probiotics, at the same doses used in the clinical studies.

So, if you want to be a part of this, here’s where to put in your order:

To your health!

Hi, I'm Dr. Steve Sisskind, Chief Medical Officer & Founder at RealDose Nutrition.

As a young physician, I struggled because my patients came to me with serious health issues, but I didn't have the right tools to help them. Medical school taught me how to put "band aids" on their symptoms with drugs and surgery, but not how to address the root causes of their problems.

Years later I discovered a better approach... based on the fundamental idea that the power of nutrition can transform your health and vitality. But there's a lot of confusion... What foods should I eat? Which supplements should I take? What does the science say?

I have dedicated my life to answering these questions... And I share this knowledge with you every day here at RealDose Nutrition.

I invite you to connect with me by joining my free private community. I've helped thousands of people and I know I can help you too!
