Not all supplements lower cholesterol.

On the contrary, some not only do not lower cholesterol but may even increase cholesterol levels, even when they’re beneficial for other purposes.

Truth be told, I believe all-natural supplements are beneficial – however, they are beneficial depending on your specific health conditions.

While some vitamins may be universal in terms of benefits there are others that may not suit your conditions (eg Vitamin B is great for daily usage to keep energy levels. I take 500% of RDA daily – no harm in it for the past 7 years I’m doing this).
