Atorsave d 20 (Atorvastatin calcium) is chemically synthesized drug which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and it is having so many side effects. Once you will start you have to continue it for life long. Check wikipedia.
I will suggest you to go for natural treatment and take some essential step to overcome.

1)     Do some 10-15 min good exercise
2)     Use rice bran oil ( it is better than ground nut oil )
3)     Use green tea – helps in lowering blood cholesterol
4)     Strictly avoid Non veg and oily food.
5)     Use Nutrilite Omega-3 – this is good fatty acid which removes fats from over body
6)     Nutrilite CH balance (cholesterol balance) to lower blood cholesterol naturally.- This green tea extract delivers catechins and theaflavins to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
My father in law had high cholesterol problem and now it is under control by using these natural treatment.

If you need more information about these products please contact to person who recommend us and he is certified Nutritionist for more understanding.
