During normal digestion process, bile acids are secreted into intestines and major portion is absorbed from intestinal tract and returned to liver via enterohepatic circulation. Cholesterol is possibly the only precursor of bile acids, which absorbs and combines with bile acids in intestine to form a complex that is insoluble and get excreted into feces that will result in partial removal of bile acids by preventing their absorption.

Questran is a Cholestyramine that is used along with proper nutritious diet and life style changes for lowering cholesterol level in blood.

 

This increased removal of bile acids leads to decrease LDL (low density lipoprotein) also called bad cholesterol level by increasing cholesterol oxidation.

Questran (Cholestyramine) is a powder formulation that acts as bile acid sequestrate and helps in increasing the removal of cholesterol especially LDL from body by converting cholesterol into bile acid and then losing bile acid from the body causes the blood cholesterol level to get decreased.
