Prevent Elevated Lp(a) Cholesterol Levels

Filed Under: Heart Health, Cholesterol

To offset the inflammation caused by elevated Lp(a) cholesterol levels, Dr. Sinatra recommends that you try one or more of the following techniques.

  1. Niacin:  Take up to a total daily dose of 1 gram (1 gram=1,000 mg) taken in one or two doses. Start at a dose of 125mg, then double it as tolerated, up to the full amount.

  2. Fish or squid oil: Take 2 grams daily of a good quality fish or squid oil (but not krill oil).

  3. Nattokinase: 50 mg daily.

  4. Bolouke: Boluoke contains the enzyme lumbrokinase, which has been shown to assist with the breakdown of fibrin, a protein involved in blood clotting. It is a Canadian product and can be purchased online. This is the only measure I know of that may actually lower your elevated Lp(a) cholesterol. Take as directed.

  5. Delta tocotrienol: Take 100–200 mg of this natural form of vitamin E once a day.

  6. Get grounded! Remember, heart disease—like diabetes, cancer and a host of autoimmune problems—is a disease caused by inflammation. In the case of heart disease, it’s the arterial walls that get inflamed. Once they puff up from inflammation and all kinds of debris that accumulate in the arterial walls, they then get clogged, especially if you have a tendency to clot. Grounding can help to reduce inflammation, and help avoid cardiovascular problems and prevent blood clots.
