I recently found two substances that may be of help for high cholesterol. One is pcynogenol - if the spelling's correct. It helps prevent a protein from forming that helps cause cholesterol and it good for keeping the arteries flexible to help prevent "hardening of the arteries." The other substance is vitamin K2 not K1 or K3. It helps keep calcium in the bones and teeth instead of going to the arteries and it also keep the arteries flexible. However, it's very important that you check with your doctor before taking the K2 if you're taking a blood thinner because the combination could cause a serious side effect. I've been taking them for a few weeks and I feel like they're helping. Please keep me apprised. Thank you. Good luck.
