Policosanol is the trivial name of a mixture of high molecular weight alcohols isolated from sugar cane, wherein octacosanol is the main component. Some forms of coagulation result in cholesterol problems. Often improving the cholesterol, results in lower coagulation levels.

  • "lowered LDL-cholesterol by 27.4% and 28.1%, total cholesterol (p < 0.00001) by 15.6% and 17.3%, and the LDL-cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol ratio by 37.2% and 36.5%, respectively"
  • "In conclusion, policosanol administered at 10 mg/day produces more advantageous changes in HDL-cholesterol and has a better safety and tolerability profile than lovastatin 20 mg/day."
  • When policosanol was administered platelet aggregation induced by ADP (37.3%), epinephrine (32.6%) and collagen (40.5%) were significantly reduced
