Plant Sterols 800mg
- 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 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.
These don''t contain as much plant sterol as the drinks so if this is an issue maybe you would need to take more than one, but for my situation, and taken in combination with garlic tablets, I''m sure these will be fine for me
