Lasuna is used to treat elevated cholesterol levels in the blood system. Lasuna belongs to the Allium family. Its main active component is allicin.
Lasuna is prescribed to individuals who have extremely elevated levels of bad fats in their body. This medication regulates the enzymes in the liver that are in charge of the production of cholesterol. This reduces the levels of low-density lipoproteins in the bloodstream.
Lasuna also reduces the amount of fats that aggregate in the arteries. This reduces the risk of atherosclerosis in individuals, especially in ones who are older. This medication also has important anti-oxidants that negate the effect of free radicals in the body that could disrupt the regular contraction and expansion of the arteries. Lasuna also lowers the risk of a blood clot forming by disrupting the unnecessary accumulation of platelets.
