Product Information

Plant sterols occur naturally in food and are similar in structure to cholesterol, the HDL fat that is abundant in animal sourced fats. But what is not generally known is that the body produces its own cholesterol which is secreted into the digestive system in the form of bile to aid the digestive process.

Plant sterols are useful because they block cholesterol from being re-absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream, and any cholesterol not absorbed is simply excreted. This is why diets high in plant sterols can help to control blood cholesterol levels, and why plant sterols are now added to some specialist margarines. Although plant sterols are naturally present in vegetable oils and grains, modern diets tend to be low in these important nutrients, and so it may be difficult to always achieve optimum levels from diet alone.

Each Nature’s Best plant sterol tablet contains 800mg of free plant sterols. We quote the level of pure plant sterols which is genuinely 100%, not the compound weight declared by some companies that may be as low as 50% sterols. This can make a useful contribution to our daily intake, without any unnecessary additional calories.

"Plant sterols"
By , 10 May 2019
As I have a number of heart problems, it is important that high cholesterol doesn’t add to them. I struggled to keep my cholesterol levels low enough despite being very careful with my diet. I found those little bottles of drink containing plant sterols helped but they’re quite expensive. These tablets from Nature’s Best are a cheaper alternative.
