Hexacosanol derived from barley sprouts helps lower cholesterol

(Natural News) In this study, researchers from Korea University in Seoul investigated the hypocholesterolemic activity of hexacosanol on hepatocytes and high-fat–induced obese mice. The results of their study, which elucidate the mechanism behind hexacosanol’s cholesterol-lowering activity, were published in the journal Nutrition Research. Policosanols are hypocholesterolemic compounds but their mechanism of action is not well-understood. The researchers hypothesized…
