  • 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.

"Does the Job!"

I took S*****s for two or three months, then switched to these plant sterols. Ive been taking them about six months now. I had a cholesterol test at my Doctors and its down to normal levels!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

We would suggest that anyone wishing to take supplements instead of medication discusses this with their doctor first to ensure that they are happy for them to do so.

"Does this help reduce cholesterol ?"
By , 06 Nov 2018
I have used this product for several years in the hopes that combined with a good diet it would reduced my cholesterol. So far still higher than my GP would like but living in hope !

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

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.

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased to hear that this product has benefited you. 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. We do advise that this product is used at the recommended dose for at least three months before reassessing.
