I had stopped using Lipitor and Crestor to reduce cholesterol because I refused to live with the side effects. I found this product and have been totally amazed. After three or so months on the pantethine, my triglycerides had dropped to borderline, and my LDL was also reduced. I had only been taking two a day. I'm now taking a third, with the hope that the numbers will decrease to an optimal level. On top of that, I've not had a single side effect.
