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.

"Good but be careful"
By Tina T. , 01 Oct 2020

I had a blood test that showed chloestrol had risen very slightly, so taking no chances I started to use this supplement.
However, I had a kind of acne breakout and I am no teenager!
This can be a side effect apparently, so I advise to take with caution if your skin reacts easily.
Such a pity.

"My Cholesterol Has Increased."
By PR , 24 Sep 2020
I have in the past taken Benecol and similar yoghurt drinks to help reduce my cholesterol, and using these got it to 4.9, which is still rather on the high side. I decided to try these plant sterol tablets instead, and have almost finished the first pot. I had a test a couple of weeks ago and my cholesterol is now 5.5. So I'll be going back to Benecol.

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. We would also suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.
