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.

"Great Product Which Seems To Work"
By David , 11 Jul 2019
Been using this product for about 8 months as my Cholesterol levels were a bit high. Level was at 6.2 around a year ago but had another blood test a few weeks ago and level is now down to 5.6. My doctor has said my levels of bad Cholesterol are now in the acceptable zone with my good Cholesterol levels having increased. As I already had a very good diet, which I have only changed slightly, I can only assume these tablets are the main reason my overall level has dropped and the bad Cholesterol is now in the acceptable range. I would certainly give these a try if you are not already on medication.

"Horse pills!"
By Nigel Baker , 25 Jun 2019
Can''t comment on effectiveness as I cannot swallow them! may get round to powdering them but at the moment a waste of money, it''s not rocket science to manufacture smaller tablets.

I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty in swallowing our tablets. We do formulate our products to be as small as possible, whilst still providing a relevant level of the nutrients required. Our research has suggested that our customers prefer to take fewer tablets which is why they are often rather large in size. It would be perfectly fine to crush the tablets into a powder if this makes it easier for you to consume them. You may wish to use a pestle and mortar to do this, or a pill crusher which are often available from pharmacies.

For future reference, an image showing the tablet size is available on the product page on the website and we are able to send out a sample of any of our tablets / capsules (excluding THRs) should you wish to assess the size of them.

"Time will tell!"
By Anonymous , 17 Jun 2019
I have started taking the tablets as my cholestrol level has risen recently. I will know how effective they are after having a blood test in a few months time, I am hoping it will have improved. The tablets are rather large so I cut them in half which makes swallowing them much easier

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

As with the majority of our products, these should be used daily for at least three months before the effects are assessed. It would be great if you could leave a review after this time.

Plant Sterols have a similar structure to cholesterol and help to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels at a dose of 0.8g per day. This is the level found in one of our 800mg tablets. However if you wish to take this to lower cholesterol I would recommend a dose of two to three tablets daily. I would also suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.

We tend to advise that you do not break tablets in half as this may leave sharp edges. It would be perfectly fine to crush the tablets into a powder if this makes it easier for you to consume them. You may wish to use a pestle and mortar to do this, or a pill crusher which are often available from pharmacies.
