Yours Mag Loves 'For your cholesterol'

Yours magazine has mentioned our ‘For your cholesterol’ product in their health and vitality feature.

In addition to saying that they ‘love’ the product they explain that it:

"uses specific probiotic strains with added omega-3 in a formulation that is easily absorbed."

The feature goes on to say that:

"Probiotics have been found to reduce bad LDL cholesterol and, along with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, one study suggests they could reduce total cholesterol by 14 percent."

The only small alteration I would make to that statement is to say that not all strains of probiotic bacteria ‘have been found to reduce LDL cholesterol’. Different strains of bacteria have different modes of action in the body.
