Robert Kowalski's personal story is legendary. By the age of forty-one, he had suffered a heart attack and had undergone two coronary bypass surgeries. A traditional dietary approach to lowering his cholesterol failed dismally, and faced with the unpleasant alternative of a lifetime on medication, he created a program that proved astonishingly effective for him -- and legions of others worldwide who use it.

Today Kowalski has beaten heart disease, lives an unlimited and vigorous lifestyle, and uses no prescription drugs. Now, with new information about risk factors, exercise, and supplements, The New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure is even more powerful in fighting heart disease.

It includes:

The facts about homocysteine and the deadly cholesterol Lp(a)

A diet that jump starts cholesterol reduction

The heart-healthy secrets of niacin, other B vitamins, and safe supplements

The latest findings on exercise

New cholesterol-testing methods

New heart-healthy products…and more!
