After having a physical last year my doctor said I was at the borderline for high LDL cholesterol and that he wanted me to consider taking a statin to lower my cholesterol. I knew right away that I did NOT want to start taking a Statin drug because I have heard side effect stories from many friends who could not tolerate them even after just a week of use. So, I decided to take a natural approach and began taking Lunasin capsules. Now after a few short months my LDL levels are back under the risk borderline. I am so grateful for Lunasin!
