I've been taking a product with RYR & Garlic in one. It has DRAMATICALLY helped my cholesterol levels! Recently though the product was reformulated by taking out the RYR and adding in Plant Sterol Esters in its place.
My question is, which of the two ingredients in the original formula helped me most with my improvements? I'm concerned the ryr was the main one that helped and I won't get the same results with the new formula.
Here is the product I was using that is now reformulated:

I called the manufacturer and talked to them about this. They told me that the FDA is leaning towards banning RYR because it acts more like a drug than a supplement. The lady said they are comparing it to a statin....

Input would be appreciated!
