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.

"Normal levels of cholesterol."

I have used this product to maintain normal levels of cholesterol for several years, as a senior citizen this is important. I exercise regularly. My annual blood test, in March, showed that I had maintained the normal levels despite having been injured for 6 months and I am convinced that the Plant Sterols helped greatly.

Wanted an alternative to s*****s, which have side effects. This has definitely proved effective and lowered my cholesterol.

We would not recommend supplements instead of prescribed medication, unless you discuss this with your doctor first and they are happy for you to do so, particularly as these are unlikely to be as effective as prescribed medication. We would also suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.

"Safer option than S*****s"

High familial cholesterol diagnosed. S*****s prescribed by GP but I refused them as not happy about the product and the side effects. The Plant Sterols are safer (in my opinion) and appear to have helped.
