I use something called Provex CV. It was developed to stop the oxidation of cholesterol, in part by altering the behaviour of blood platelets. (This seems to be the source of the "French Paradox" by which the French have been able to eat a high cholesterol diet in conjunction with a life long use of red wine and avoid cholesterol buildups.) One of the effects of this particular complex is that there are reports of its use resulting in lowered inflammation. From an old study from the London Hospital, it seems there is a relationship between the behaviour of blood platelets in cholesterol buildups and the same behaviour in colon inflammation. While that study was specific to IBD, it seems to be the one thing I can point to as responsible for my recovery. And it has also done the job on my cardio risk that it was designed for. MarkWhat type of flavonoid complex do you take?
