Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in blood LDL-cholesterol levels after 4 weeks of supplementation (limicol double dose group versus placebo group) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in blood LDL-cholesterol levels after 4 weeks of supplementation (limicol double dose group versus limicol simple dose group) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from Baseline in blood total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and TAG levels after 4 weeks of supplementation (limicol double dose group versus limicol simple dose group versus placebo group) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from Baseline in blood LDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and TAG levels 4 weeks after end of supplementation (limicol double dose group versus limicol simple dose group versus placebo group) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from Baseline in CK, LDH and other safety biomarkers levels after 4 weeks of supplementation (limicol double dose group versus placebo group versus placebo group) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
