Policosanol is a mixture of high-molecular-weight aliphatic primary alcohols isolated from natural waxes. It contains Docosanol(C22), Tricosanol(C23), Tetracosanol(C24), Pentacosanol(C25), Hexacosanol(C26), Heptacosanol(C27), Octacosanol(C28), Nonacosanol(C29), Triacontanol(C30), Untriacontanol(C31) and Dotriacotanol(C32). Policosanol is sometimes written as Polycosanol. Zhenwei Bio-Tec list all breakdown alcohols testing result in Certification of Analysis.
Octacosanol is a high-molecular-weight aliphatic primary alcohol contain 28 carbonyl bonds. Octacosanol performed excellent effectiveness of reducing LDL type cholesterol in human blood in almost all clinical studies, so that reducing the risk of atherosclerotic, then improving reaction of motor nerve. Policosanol is well known of low side-effect and reasonable clinical functions. As the real active ingredient of Policosanol, Octacosanol content is always listed on product label for Nutraceutical or Pharmaceutical formulations.
