Octacosanol, a complex fatty acid, octacosanol is a plant compound that may help stabilize your cholesterol levels. If your cholesterol is high, and you have had a difficult time controlling it through diet and exercise, supplementation with octacosanol just might be the answer you're looking for. Also touted for its role in facilitating energy-production within the muscle cells, octacosanol is being studied for its potential to support muscle endurance and increase metabolism. Read on for more about this too often overlooked supplement.

Octacosanol is a long-chain fatty alcohol that is similar to cholesterol in structure. This compound is found in the waxy film that covers the leaves and fruits of plants. Octacosanol is the primary chemical compound of a group of plant compounds called policosanols. Policosanols have been studied for their effects on stabilizing cholesterol levels, as well as improving energy production.

Octacosanol has been studied for two benefits that it may possess: improving cholesterol levels and increasing endurance and oxygen utilization. Octacosanol helps to improve cholesterol levels in the body by helping to decrease levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and unhealthy triglycerides, increasing HDL (good) cholesterol, and by reducing platelet aggregation, which leads to blocked vessels. In fact, octacosanol has been shown to hold its own against other statin drugs that are commonly prescribed to normalize cholesterol levels, including pravastatin, lovastatin, and acipimox, all without any side effects.

Octacosanol has also been studied for its effects on facilitating energy production in the body. These studies have shown that octacosanol is taken up by the muscles and then translated into a fuel source for these tissues. This extra source of energy promotes increased endurance and prolonged exercise, which optimistically may result in speedier and increased metabolism. However, these claims are still being studied for accuracy.

Octacosanol is found primarily in sugar cane, which is the number one source of supplements. It is also found somewhat in citrus fruits, wheat germ oil, and caviar. However, the best way to obtain octacosanol is through daily supplementation.
