What are plant sterols?
Our natural plant sterols block the absorption of dietary cholesterol in the body. Also known as phytosterols, the ‘plant’ in plant sterols refers to the fact they come from fruit, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds; while the ‘sterols’ indicates that they are similar in structure to the cholesterol found in our own bodies.
Plant Sterols help to lower the “bad cholesterol”, known as LDL (low-density lipoprotein), by competing with it for absorption in the intestines.
Why choose Healthspan's Plant Sterols 800 mg tablets?
Due to the similarity to cholesterol, these plant sterols tablets can stop the cholesterol in the things you eat being absorbed in the small intestine. As a result, plant sterols can keep your cholesterol levels at a normal level, or even better, help lower your blood cholesterol and therefore reduce the risk in the development of coronary heart disease.
By taking our Plant Sterols tablets, you can get your recommended daily intake without the added calories of fat found in sterol-enriched margarine of dairy produce. What’s more, they represent a natural way to manage your cholesterol, without any nasty side effects. In order to obtain the beneficial effect of lowering blood cholesterol our experts recommend taking three tablets daily, providing 2400 mg plant sterols (as well as high levels of the active molecules ‘beta−sitosterols’).
*800 mg plant sterols daily help maintain normal cholesterol levels. Cholesterol lowering benefit obtained with a daily intake of 1500 mg − 3000 mg plant sterols.
