    Nutraceuticals for Lowering LDL-C: A Review of the Evidence

    Hosted live on September 1, 2019

    Note: CPE credits are not available.

    The global nutraceutical market (including both functional foods and dietary supplements) is expected to reach $578.23 billion by 2025, and a search for "cholesterol-lowering supplements" on an online shopping site yields over 600 results. Patients are seeking out natural methods of treating hypercholesterolemia, and dietitians must be equipped to support them with evidence-based recommendations. While not intended to replace pharmacological therapy, many nutraceuticals can help achieve treatment targets, particularly in patients with mild to moderate lipid elevations, statin-intolerant patients, and patients on pharmacological treatment but not quite at goal. This webinar will review the evidence behind common LDL-lowering nutraceuticals, focusing on those with well-designed studies to demonstrate their efficacy. Upon completion, you will be able to identify nutraceuticals to consider, either alone or in conjunction with pharmaceuticals, in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia, along with dosing information, possible side effects, and anticipated LDL-C improvements.
