More information about Crestor
Crestor is an effective high cholesterol medication that is clinically proven to help to lower cholesterol and the branded version of the generic medication and active ingredient rosuvastatin. This medication is part of a group of medicines known as statins, which work to reduce cholesterol by blocking a particular enzyme. Crestor is highly tolerable and available in a range of doses meaning it can be prescribed to patients with high cholesterol who are at risk of heart attack and stroke.
Crestor can start to reduce cholesterol in as little as 2-4 weeks, and when combined with healthy dietary changes, can lower LDL cholesterol by up to 55%.
The active ingredient, rosuvastatin calcium, works to reduce levels of cholesterol that are produced by the liver. You may have heard of cholesterol being divided into two types: "bad" (low density lipoprotein or LDL) and "good" (high density lipoprotein or HDL) cholesterol.
LDL is "bad" because it can clog up and narrow the arteries, increasing the risk of cardiovascular problems like heart attacks, which HDL protects against this. Crestor works in fours separate ways to reduce the bad cholesterol and blocking the enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, which is responsible for producing LDL.
Crestor is clinically proven medication in the UK and particularly effective if you have found altering your diet and doing more exercise has not provided the desired effect .
