Eight aliphatic fatty alcohols in 1 study were 1-tetracosanol, 1-hexacosanol, 1-heptacosanol, 1-octacosanol, 1-nonacosanol, 1-triacontanol, 1-dotriacontanol, and 1-tetratriacontanol, Cholesterol reduction Policosanol's impact on cholesterol is mediated through a reduction in the synthesis and degradation of the rate-limiting step of cholesterol biosynthesis, the enzyme 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG Co A) reductase. Validation and interlaboratory study of a new GC analytical method for the determination of policosanol in raw material [in Spanish] . Clinical data Despite the proliferation of studies primarily conducted by researchers in Cuba in the late 1990s and early 2000 proclaiming the efficacy of policosanol in lowering cholesterol, more recent studies have failed to validate early expectations.
