How Liposan Forte Nuova Formula works
The strength of Liposan Forte Nuova Formula lies in its formulation which is 100% natural. Each active ingredient has been selected for its specific action that helps normalise cholesterol and triglycerides levels.
Fermented Red Rice
It is obtained from the fermentation of common cooking rice with a particular yeast, the Monascus purpureus (no, not the one you find in supermarkets, it won't have the same effect!), which enriches rice with specific molecules called "Monacolins". Monacolins help maintain total cholesterol levels within safety ranges and promote the synthesis of good cholesterol (HDL). And it does work! But only on one condition. Your daily intake of total Monacolins must be of 3 mg, every day! Liposan Forte Nuova Formula provides you with the right amount of such precious molecules and their quantity in the capsules is always exactly the same, even if they are from different batches.
Another star ingredient is Silymarin, Milk Thistle active principle. Silymarin promotes liver functions, helps the body get rid of toxins and neutralises free radicals. Silymarin deploys its effects directly in the blood by modulating cholesterol levels. Specifically, it causes liver cells (hepatocytes) to retain cholesterol molecules (particularly LDL) circulating in the blood, thereby decreasing their total concentration4. Moreover, Milk Thistle is an antioxidant, it protects the liver and accelerates the cleansing and regeneration process2. Therefore, the combination of Milk Thistle and Fermented Red Rice increases the effectiveness of the product, allowing for cholesterol levels to be kept under control.
Barberry has many properties, but it mainly supports liver functions thanks to its active principle called Berberin. And, this is why we have chosen Barberry to be part of the "Liposan Forte Nuova Formula" team of active principles! What does it mean in practical terms? Your liver performs countless functions. One of the most important is the control of the quantity of fats in the bloodstream. If it works well, that is, if its functions are supported, it is easier for the liver to perform such an important task. This can result in a reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides3 and therefore in a lower risk of cardio-vascular diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, ischemia, etc.
Garlic is a well-known and widely used food as well as a remedy in traditional medicine, both in Eastern and in Western countries, for it normalises blood pressure, is a cardio-protector, antioxidant and lipid-lowering agent. Through a process now standardized at controlled temperature and humidity and based on the traditional methods of garlic maturation, it is possible to obtain an extract in which allicin (which is responsible for the typical pungent aroma of fresh garlic) is converted into S-allyl-cysteine (SAC), a thio-compound with strong antioxidant properties. As a result, Garlic acquires dark tones, a sweet flavour and the original pungent aroma disappears. Matured or Aged Garlic (also known as Black Garlic), titrated in SAC, can be used as a nutraceutical to support cardiovascular functions. Particularly, it is useful to counteract the oxidation of LDL lipoproteins, a strategic factor for your cardiovascular well-being.
We all know Rosemary as a precious ingredient for our best recipes. What you might not know is that Rosemary active principles support liver functions and are also beneficial for the heart and the circulatory system altogether.
Like Barberry, Rosemary also supports liver functions, but in a different way.
One of the main tasks of the liver is to cleanse our blood from toxins and waste in general. You can picture your liver as a sort of filter. When it goes through the liver, the blood is filtered and toxins and waste are broken down. This cleansing action is essential to protect the heart and, in general, the entire cardio-vascular system. And it is even more so when you have to keep your cholesterol under control. In addition to that, Rosemary titrated in Ursolic acid protects liver functions and optimizes the metabolism of fats in the liver and in the whole body.

Excess cholesterol and triglycerides are a silent condition with no particular symptoms, very common in Italy5.
We are often unaware of them because we tend to be more concerned by other more evident conditions such as high blood pressure, recurring vascular disorders, overweight, etc.
Not many people know that, more often than we might think, high cholesterol and triglycerides levels can be of genetic origin6.
Some individuals have high cholesterol and triglycerides levels despite the fact that they stick to a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle (they do not smoke nor drink, and they regularly exercise).
This is due to the fact that the overproduction of cholesterol does not depend only on what we eat. In addition to the exogenous cholesterol (i.e. the one we take in with food), there is another type of cholesterol called endogenous, which is the one our body naturally produces.
What matters is that cholesterol high levels - be it endogenous or exogenous - are extremely common among many of us.
Suffice it to think that nearly 54% of the European population suffers from hypercholesterolemia - i.e. high cholesterol levels - which is equally spread between men and women, the latter being affected especially after the age of fifty7.
And this is the most widespread cardiovascular risk factor in Italy. And last data, but not least, 40% of those with hypercholesterolemia are not even aware of it!8
Only by reading these data we immediately understand how important prevention can be.
What does prevention mean in practical terms?
- See your medical doctor regularly for a check-up and specific blood tests
- Follow a healthy diet, quality and quantity wise
- Do not smoke nor drink alcohol
- Do some exercise regularly
- Take the right food supplements
Liposan Forte Nuova Formula is a 100% natural food supplement containing fermented Red Rice (Total Monacolines, including K, 3 mg/day) and titrated dry extracts from Barberry, Milk Thistle, Matured Garlic and Rosemary.
Particularly, the combination of Monacolins, Silymarin, Berberine and Rosemary has proved to be effective in reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides (approx. - 20% in 3 months) in a functional clinical trial (Medicinal Plants vol. 15(4) 2016 published by Si.Fit. - Capriotti F., Censani S.).
Fermented red rice
- Cicero AFG, Fogacci F, Banach M. Red Yeast Rice for Hypercholesterolemia. Methodist Debakey Cardiovasc J. 2019 Jul-Sep;15(3):192-199. doi: 10.14797/mdcj-15-3-192. PMID: 31687098; PMCID: PMC6822657.
This retrospective work confirms that Fermented Red Rice is currently the most effective natural remedy for the containment of blood cholesterol levels, particularly for total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and Apolipoprotein B, which are determinants of cardiovascular well-being. Besides, associated risks and side effects are minimal and are seen only in the frailest subjects or those with a higher sensitivity to monacolin K. They may see the onset of mild myalgia, however reversible with the suspension of the active principle.
- Heinz T, et al. Low daily dose of 3 mg monacolin K from RYR reduces the concentration of LDL-C in a randomized, placebo-controlled intervention. Nutr Res. 2016 Oct;36(10):1162-1170. doi: 10.1016/j.nutres.2016.07.005. Epub 2016 Jul 27. PMID: 27865358.
According to this interesting German study, a 3 mg daily dosage of Monacolin K can decrease by almost 15% the level of LDL cholesterol, which is the most harmful form of cholesterol for the cardiovascular system. Hence, the above daily dosage of Monacolin K is useful to lower cardiovascular risks.
- Kong W, et al. Berberine is a novel cholesterol-lowering drug working through a unique mechanism distinct from statins. Nat Med. 2004 Dec;10(12):1344-51. doi: 10.1038/nm1135. Epub 2004 Nov 7. PMID: 15531889.
This functional study on hypercholesterolemic patients showed that administration of Berberine (Barberry active principle) for 3 months reduced serum cholesterol by 29%, triglycerides by 35% and LDL-cholesterol by 25%. These findings confirm that Berberine is a powerful natural active principle that normalizes lipemic levels, which is so important for the cardiovascular well-being, with a different and complementary mechanism to that of statins.

This work reviews data obtained from as many as 16 different functional studies on Berberine from Barberry, administered to a total of 2'147 patients. Results confirm that Barberry active principles reduce the serum levels of Total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides, while it increases the levels of HDL Cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol fraction that supports cardio-vascular well-being.
- Cacciapuoti F, Scognamiglio A, Palumbo R, Forte R, Cacciapuoti F. Silymarin in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. World J Hepatol. 2013 Mar 27;5(3):109-13. doi: 10.4254/wjh.v5.i3.109. PMID: 23556042; PMCID: PMC3612568.
The study confirms that Milk Thistle and its active ingredient Silymarin have a strong protective action on the liver and its functions. Milk Thistle dry extract titrated in Silymarin was administered to 72 patients suffering from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). After 3 months, blood tests confirmed that some parameters, including the ones indicative of early stage of atherosclerosis, had lowered, thus leading to the reduction of cardio-vascular risks.
- Formisano E, et al. Efficacy of Nutraceutical Combination of Monacolin K, Berberine, and Silymarin on Lipid Profile and PCSK9 Plasma Level in a Cohort of Hypercholesterolemic Patients. J Med Food. 2020 Jun;23(6):658-666. doi: 10.1089/jmf.2019.0168. Epub 2019 Oct 30. PMID: 31663806.
The study was carried out on 53 patients with congenital hypercholesterolemia and confirmed that a combination of Monacolin, Berberine and Silymarin has effects comparable to the ones obtained with Atorvastatin, a synthetic statin, especially on LDL-Cholesterol levels. Improvements of the p-CSK-9 protein - a critical element in congenital cholesterol dyslipidemia - were also observed, a result which is not achievable with the use of Atorvastatin. All this leads to the conclusion that the association of these natural active ingredients can play an important role in normalizing serum fat levels.
Matured (Aged) Garlic
- Jung ES, et al. Reduction of blood lipid parameters by a 12-wk supplementation of aged black garlic: a randomized controlled trial. Nutrition. 2014 Sep;30(9):1034-9. doi: 10.1016/j.nut.2014.02.014. Epub 2014 Mar 12. PMID: 24976429.
The action of Matured or Aged Garlic (also known as Black Garlic) was tested on 60 participants in a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial. After 12 weeks, the group being administered Aged Black Garlic showed improved parameters compared to the placebo group in terms of HDL cholesterol and Apolipoprotein B levels, determinants of the cardiovascular well-being. The study proves that Aged Garlic deploys a protective action on the circulatory system.
- Munday JS, et al. Daily supplementation with aged garlic extract, but not raw garlic, protects low density lipoprotein against in vitro oxidation. Atherosclerosis. 1999 Apr;143(2):399-404. doi: 10.1016/s0021-9150(98)00293-7. PMID: 10217370.
LDL isolated from subjects given an Aged Garlic Extract (AGE), but not raw garlic, was significantly more resistant to oxidation than LDL isolated from subjects receiving no supplement. These results suggest that, if antioxidants are proven to be antiatherogenic, Aged Garlic Extract may be useful in preventing atherosclerotic disease and therefore reduce the cardiovascular risk.
- Kim GH, et al. Ursolic Acid Suppresses Cholesterol Biosynthesis and Exerts Anti-Cancer Effects in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells. Int J Mol Sci. 2019 Sep 26;20(19):4767. doi: 10.3390/ijms20194767. PMID: 31561416; PMCID: PMC6802365.
This interesting in vitro study confirms that Ursolic acid, a natural pentacyclic terpenoid found in Rosemary, can counteract the endogenous production of cholesterol by culture liver cells. The data obtained may lead to the conclusion that Ursolic acid can be a promising cholesterol-lowering nutraceutical for the prevention and the treatment of chronic diseases related to excess cholesterol.
- Tu Z, Moss-Pierce T, Ford P, Jiang TA. Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) extract regulates glucose and lipid metabolism by activating AMPK and PPAR pathways in HepG2 cells. J Agric Food Chem. 2013 Mar 20;61(11):2803-10. doi: 10.1021/jf400298c. Epub 2013 Mar 6. PMID: 23432097.
Rosemary has experimentally been proven to lower blood glucose and cholesterol levels in several in vivo studies. On a liver cell culture, Rosemary extract has the potential to increase hepatic glycolysis and fatty acid oxidation. Such action is fundamental to support the organic metabolic well-being, prevent the increase of sugar and fat levels in the blood and keep them under control thus granting the general well-being of the whole body.
