what reduces lp(a)?

Post Number:#1  Post by zarfas » Tue Aug 07, 2018 7:46 am

vit C
Lysine
proline
NAC
Niacin



from what I understand, vit C does not lower Lp(a) directly, it does give the body the material to make collagen,. thus redecing the body 's need for Lp(a) and thus lowers lp(a) indirectly?

Lysine, which is a protein, and proline,are used to make collagen and are needed to make new collagen, but when collagen cracks in the body, these proteins provide binding sites for lp(a) are exposed. The Lp(a) binds to these cracks and forms slowly growing plaques.
So take lysine/proline to:
1 make collagen
2 fill up these binding sites so\ Lp(a) can't bind and make more plaques.
3 at high enough concentrations, lysine attracts Lp(a) in the existing plaques and will dissolve the plaque.

niacin
lowers LDL cholestrol thus lowers lp(a)

N-acetyl cysteine (Nac) lowers Lp(a)? by breaking up the disulphide bridges making Lp(a) into LP and A
maybe?
