  Is diet on its own enough to combat my high cholesterol?

Many times diet alone is not enough to combat high cholesterol. Approximately 33% of cholesterol is influenced by our diet, while the other 66% is determined by mechanisms over which we have no control. This is especially the case with clients who have a genetic predisposition to high cholesterol. We therefore recommend the use of RyChol in combination with dietary adjustments.
