Dr. Guilliams describes two “new kids on the block” for cholesterol management: berberine and bergamot. Do they provide additional benefits besides lowering cholesterol? Are there any side effects? Can they be safely taken with statins? What other supplements complement these agents for comprehensive cardiovascular prevention? Is lowering homocysteine still important? Click HERE for part 2.
