  • May help to reduce the absorption of cholesterol
  • A highly researched mode of action
  • Useful contribution to your daily intake
  • A level of plant sterols that can make a difference

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, with high levels of beta-sitosterols. We quote the level of pure plant sterols, not the compound weight declared by some companies that may be only 50% sterols. This can make a useful contribution to our daily intake, without any unnecessary additional calories.

"Keeps Chlorestrol Levels Down"
By , 11 Nov 2017
I was about 5.7 and was told this was too high. Plant Sterols got this down to 4.5 in just a few weeks. Benacol is too sweet for me, taking these is easy and a cheap option. Works well. Will continue.

"Trying To Cut Out Statins"
By , 30 Oct 2017
Why do you use this product NEW Plant Sterols 800mg ?
It is rather too early to say. I have embarked on a change in lifestyle involving a reduction of sucrose and refined carbohydrates and also anticipate giving up the taking of prescription statins. I feel I would like some dietary support doing this.

Why do you use this product NEW Plant Sterols 800mg ?
For the last few years my cholesterol results from my annual blood test have been high at 6.1. I've failed to get it down by diet so thought I'd try Plant Sterols having read the reviews. Since I've only just started taking them I can't make further comment. I shall request another blood test in six months to see if they are working.

"Fantastic Plant Sterol ! "
By , 18 Oct 2017
i use the above because high cholesterol runs in my family, I have never had high levels but as I approach the peri menopause I am just trying to protect myself as I know cholesterol levels an rise when you go through menopause, I’m due for a yearly cholesterol test soon and I’m hoping it’s still at a good level! I would recommend as I think to take a supplement with minimal side effects is better than to take medication with several side effects
