Policosanol is a mixture of alcohols isolated and purified from sugar cane (Sacchrum officinarum L). 
It consists mainly of 66 percent octacosanol, 12 percent triacosanol, and 7 percent hexacosanol. 
Other alcohols, namely tetracosanol, heptacosanol, nonacosanol, dtricosanol and tetratriacntanol, are minor components. 
Recently, researchers in Cuba have shown that policosanol is effective at improving serum lipids by lowering total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), while raising high-density lipoprotein (HDL). 
High serum cholesterol is currently a major health risk of heart diseases, the leading cause of death in USA. 
71 million American adults have high low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol. 
Lowering the high cholesterol level can reduce the risk of having a heart attack, needing heart bypass surgery or angioplasty, and dying of heart disease. 
However less than half of adults with high LDL cholesterol get treatment because high cholesterol has no symptoms, so many people don’t know that their cholesterol is too high. 
Because of the high medical needs, extensive research and development have produced potent therapeutic agents called ‘statins’. 
Although these ‘statins’ have effects on lowering the high cholesterol, 
however they have many side effects such as muscle aches, tenderness, weakness (myalgia), abdominal cramping or pain, bloating or gas, flushing of the skin, headache, nausea or vomiting. 
Interestingly, recent studies show that 5-20mg daily dosing of policosanol is effective at improving serum lipid profiles by inhibiting cholesterol synthesis and increasing LDL processing. 
Lipid profile improvements are seen in healthy volunteers, patients with type II hypercholesterolemia, type 2 diabetes with hypercholesterolemia, postmenopausal women with hypercholesterolemia, and patients with combined hypercholesterolemia and abnormal liver function. 
Additionally, policosanol has performed equal to or better that simvastatin, pravastatin, lovastatin, probucol, or acipimox with fewer side effects. 
Policosanol also decreases several other risk factors of cardiovascular disease by decreasing LDL oxidation, platelet aggregation, endothelial damage, and smooth muscle cell proliferation. 
Thereby, Inertia Nature, Inc. have produced Policosanol supplement using high quality ingredient containing higher aliphatic primary alcohols.

Uses & Benefits
Poilicosanol appears to be safe and effective supplement that can be used to lower several cardiovascular disease risk factors. 
Doses of 5-20 mg/day policosanol have resulted in decreased total cholesterol, LDL, and LDL/HDL ratios, and increased HDL. 
Additionally, policosanol has beneficial effects on platelet aggregation, LDL oxidation, intermittent claudication, liver function, and symptoms of cardiovascular disease, while displaying virtually no side effects. 
Especially intermittent claudication, causing leg pain due to poor blood circulation can be treated by policosanol. 
Treated patients can walk without pain. Policosanol dosing is also beneficial to the people with high cholesterol and with clogged arteries.
