Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have had increased cholesterol in the last nine months. Every three months I would go for a lab test, it would be higher. However after researching information about cholesterol levels I have revised my thinking about higher readings. It definitely has been a smoking gun the last two decades in the media.

Not only is cholesterol not likely to destroy your health ( as you have been led to believe) but it is also not the cause of heart disease. The body does need cholesterol. It helps to produce cell membranes, hormones, Vit D and bile acids that help digest fats. Surprisingly, your liver makes about 75% of your cholesterol.

The total cholesterol count is just about worthless in determining your risk for heart disease.

I started taking Omegagize, 2 capsules in the morning before I eat and 2 capsules after dinner daily and drank 2 ounces of NingXia Red juice daily. I kept my healthy diet (everything steamed and grilled; once in a while something fried, no beef, lots of vegetables and fruits and walking at least 20 minutes every day.

I went back for a blood test checking my cholesterol and it went from 211 total cholesterol three months ago to now 171 total cholesterol. I would definitely not want go any lower than this reading. (LDL three months ago was 138;102 now; what a difference!).

Thank you God for bringing Young Living Essential Oils into our lives! If anyone would like to see faster results with Omegagize, they could take 4 capsules in the morning and 4 capsules at night based on the instructions listed on the bottle.
