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.

"Dropped by 1 point."
By Alan Hunt , 26 Feb 2020
I''ve been on A*********s for years to control my cholesterol but always hovered around 5.5. I have been taking these plant sterols in addition to my s*****s and on my past 2 yearly check ups my cholesterol was 4.1 and 4.5. So they must be working.

"Terrific Product"
By Vee , 15 Feb 2020
After being diagnosed with high cholesterol for sometime now, and not wishing to take the general medication I decided to go down the natural route.

Well I've been using Plant Sterols for sometime now & found it to be terrific. It took my cholesterol levels down quite substantially.

I have to admit however, that I'd stopped for awhile & now my cholesterol levels has started to back creep up...so I will be re-ordering ASAP!!

"Caution"
By Angela , 15 Feb 2020
I bought these in preference to s*****s which caused bad side effects. Muscle pain/weakness, brain fog, stress incontinence, all now much improved off the drug.) However I found that brain fog began to return while taking sterols and gave them up. I now take nothing because studies have shown over 55s live longer if they have high LDL cholesterol - whatever your beliefs on this, I would advise caution if you are hoping to alleviate symptoms associated with s*****s in case the sterols do the same thing. Probably fine if you believe lowering cholesterol is a good thing and if prescription s****s give you no problems.
