Phytosterols (plant sterols) occur naturally in plant materials such as nuts, grains, seeds, leaves and vegetable oils. They have a similar chemical structure to cholesterol, but they are absorbed by the gut at much lower levels than cholesterol. Phytosterols can now be found in “special” margarines, spreads and yoghurts etc.
Consuming phytosterols in sufficient quantities has the potential to:
✔ Reduce total cholesterol
✔ Reduce LDL cholesterol
Without affecting HDL cholesterol or triglycerides Phytosterols appear to act by decreasing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine.
A daily intake of 2g of phytosterols has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol which is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.
✔ More convenient to take than using spreads etc.
✔ Can be used in conjunction with statin medication to lower cholesterol
✔ Longer shelf life than spreads etc.
✔ Ideal for people wanting the benefits of phytosterols who don’t want to change eating habits to incorporate “special” foods
✔ 400mg per capsule
✔ 2 capsules a day
✔ 60 capsules = one months supply
✔ Contains same ingredients as “cholesterol lowering” margarine spreads and yoghurts etc.
✔ Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
