Your heart is easily the most powerful organ in your body. You cannot live without it, and it works hard to take care of you. Given the importance of your heart, it’s important that you provide your heart with the support it needs to perform at its best. This, in turn, keeps you performing at your best. 

Diet has been identified as the lifestyle factor that has the most influence on heart health. And this is completely within your control. While factors like aging and genetics are outside your control, choosing the right diet and nutrients for your heart is important. Specifically, support that helps to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. 

Maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels can help promote heart health and proper circulation. A targeted and unique heart health formula recommended by an interventional cardiologist is a perfect place to start. 1MD Nutrition’s CholestMD® includes the right combination of heart-healthy nutrients that work together to maintain healthy cholesterol levels every day. 

Loving Your Heart

As the hardest working muscle in your body, your heart ensures that oxygen and nutrients are delivered to each cell, tissue, and organ. A healthy heart is the key to your overall wellbeing, and because age-related changes are inevitable, it is important for you to take proactive steps to care for your heart. 

Part of your proactive approach should include the right diet, as this is a key contributing factor to heart health. This means it is important for you to make the right decisions about the food you eat. A healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet is one of the most effective ways to give your heart the nutrients and support it needs for optimal health. 

By paying attention to what you eat, you can help support healthy cholesterol, blood glucose, and blood pressure levels to promote heart and circulatory health. A plant-based diet low in saturated fats and refined sugars and high in fiber combined with regular exercise and heart-supporting supplements is a proactive way to show your heart some love.

How to Properly Use and Store CholestMD®

You have decided to start supporting your heart by maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. With CholestMD® formula, you have made the right choice. Recommended by 1MD Nutrition’s cardiologist, this formula delivers potent, naturally-sourced ingredients for targeted cholesterol support. Properly using and storing your CholestMD® is the next step, so you get the best these ingredients have to offer. 

The Right Choice

There are two types of lipoprotein that are responsible for transporting cholesterol through the body. HDL, or good cholesterol, helps transport cholesterol to the liver so it can be removed, while LDL, or bad cholesterol, impacts arterial health. If you are looking to promote heart and circulatory health, the targeted support of CholestMD®, with bergamot extract and niacin, is the right choice. 

When to Take Them

As a dietary supplement, it is recommended that adults take two capsules of CholestMD® once daily. Capsules should be taken with an 8-ounce glass of water or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. It does help to take the capsules after a meal to provide some additional protection for them to get through the acidic stomach and to the intestines for proper absorption.

How to Store Them

Your CholestMD® supplement should be stored in a cool dark place. Always keep an eye on the expiration date because this will tell you how long the ingredients will be effective. Over time, these naturally-sourced ingredients will break down, becoming ineffective, so you want to be sure to use them before this date. 

CholestMD® delivers a unique combination of Bergavit™ and niacin, two potent ingredients that support cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health. Adding olive leaf and garlic bulb extract further supports healthy blood lipid levels, circulation, arterial health, and metabolic function for a targeted and powerful heart health solution.

What’s Inside Your CholestMD® Capsule

CholestMD® contains just the right amount of essential nutrients to support cholesterol and cardiovascular health. Each of these powerful ingredients supports healthy blood lipid levels for the optimal function of your heart and circulatory system.


Bergamot is a citrus fruit packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and potassium which help support healthy cholesterol levels and reduce occasional oxidative stress. The CholestMD® formula includes Bergavit™, a clinically-studied, standardized extract that contains the main active flavonoids in bergamot. This potent ingredient has been shown to support blood lipid level equalization in the body for optimal circulatory and cardiovascular health. 


Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is used by every part of your body. Every tissue has the ability to convert niacin into a metabolically active form for use in many enzymatic reactions. Niacin is also used to turn food into energy and supports heart and circulatory health. Niacin acts specifically on an enzyme involved in triglyceride synthesis to help promote healthy blood lipid levels.

Olive Leaf Extract

CholestMD® includes olive leaf extract, packed with naturally-occurring plant polyphenols that help support healthy cholesterol levels. By aiding in the maintenance of blood lipid levels, olive leaf extract helps promote arterial healthy and proper circulation. 

Garlic Bulb Extract

Garlic has been used for centuries in traditional medicine, and garlic bulb extract provides targeted benefits for heart health. The main compound in garlic, allicin, supports metabolic function and circulation by aiding in the stabilization of cholesterol levels.
