Avocado Leaf Vs. Lipitor for Cholesterol

If you're looking for a natural alternative to Lipitor and other drugs that lower cholesterol, you may want to consider the avocado leaf. 

The avocado leaf is native to Central America and has been used for centuries in medicinal applications.

The avocado leaf has been shown in numerous studies to be a more potent and effective option than Lipitor for lowering cholesterol levels. 

One such study was done by various doctors and scientists which will be discussed below.  The current patent focuses on techniques and formulations for reducing cholesterol levels using avocado leaves and leaf extracts.




Understanding the Study

The study discussed in the patent application focuses on the potential cholesterol-lowering effects of avocado leaf extract, specifically from the Persea americana var. drymifolia species. This species of avocado is known for its anise-like scent and is primarily found in Northern Argentina and Mexico.

Study Methodology

The researchers examined the cholesterol-lowering properties of drymifolia leaves in various forms:

  1. Avocado Leaf Tea: To prepare avocado leaf tea, the leaves were milled to achieve specific particle sizes and then boiled for a short duration to create a tea infusion. This method allows for the leaves' active compounds to be extracted into the tea.

  2. Avocado Leaf Extract: Dehydrated and milled avocado leaves were processed into an extract. The extraction process involved using hot water to create a water-soluble fraction of the leaves.

Study Results

Here are the key findings from the study:

  1. Comparative Efficacy: avocado leaves, whether in the form of tea or extract, showed significant cholesterol-lowering effects when compared to other avocado varieties, including the fruit and leaves of Persea nubigena var. guatamalensis cv. Nabal and Persea nubigena var. guatamalensis cv. Haas, which are commonly grown in North America.

  2. Tea vs. Extract: The study revealed that the cholesterol-lowering effect of avocado leaves, especially when milled to a specific particle size, was comparable to the cholesterol-lowering medication LIPITOR®. The milled leaves outperformed hand-crushed leaves.

  3. Water-Soluble Fraction: The water-soluble fraction of drymifolia leaves, obtained through the extraction process, demonstrated impressive cholesterol-reducing capabilities. In fact, it performed better than an ethanol extract of drymifolia leaves, indicating that the active compounds responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effect are primarily water-soluble.

  4. Combination Therapy: Avocado leaf extract showed synergy with other cholesterol-lowering agents when tested together. This suggests that it can be used in combination with existing treatments for enhanced effectiveness.

Dosage and Formulation

The study suggests that a daily dose of at least 200 mg of avocado leaf extract can be effective in lowering cholesterol levels. However, most people may benefit from doses ranging from 200 mg to 1000 mg per day. This extract can be formulated into various products, including dietary supplements, tablets, or capsules, for easy consumption.


While more research is needed to fully understand the specific compounds responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effects of avocado leaves, these findings present an exciting potential for a natural and accessible solution to managing cholesterol levels. It's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating any new treatment or supplement into your cholesterol management plan.

This study highlights the possibility that the avocado tree, known for its delicious fruit, may offer a natural path to heart health through its leaves. Stay informed, stay healthy!




Conclusion of the Study

Lipitor might be the most prescribed drug in the world, but it's not the only option. Researchers have discovered that if you consume the avocado leaf, you can lower your cholesterol levels.

The patent was studied by the world's renowned doctors and scientists. They found that it can lower LDL cholesterol, raise HDL cholesterol and increase good cholesterol (HDL). The study also showed that this leaf is a natural alternative to Lipitor.
