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.

"I bought this as an experiment "
By Chris Haestier , 31 Aug 2019
I believe these are supposed to lower my cholesterol. I have recently learnt my cholesterols are a little high but s*****s are based on lactose and I am intolerant of lactose and therefore I am unable to take them so am trying these sterols instead. I have yet to retest my cholesterol level.

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.

"Too big to swallow"

Value for money, but the size makes them difficult to manage.

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. For future reference 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.

"Not for me but my wife. "
By Anonymous , 07 Aug 2019
Having had my annual review @ the doctors was
advised to take s******s. I have ignored this for many
years. My cousin recommended these so decided
to give them a try. I can’t say if they are of any help
because I won’t have another blood test for 1yr.
Tablet is large so I bite to swallow. My doctor said they were OK. No adverse affect.

We would not recommend taking supplements instead of prescribed medications 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.

By Ian A. Dickson , 17 Jul 2019
No obvious physical effect from taking these for several years, but when I had a blood test my cholesterol level was back to normal... so they work.... all you need to know.
