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.

"Sadly No Effect"
By Anonymous , 15 Jan 2020
I had ordered these supplements to reduce my cholesterol. Sadly there has been no improvement even after taking them over a period of three months.
Recommend to a friend: No
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I am sorry to hear that you have not found Plant Sterols helpful. 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 have contacted you directly to discuss this further.

My husband wants to reduce his cholesterol without taking s*****s and a friend recommended this product. He will take it for six months, when he will be given another cholesterol test to find out if successful

We would not recommend taking supplements instead of prescribed medications unless you discuss this with your husbands doctor first and they are happy for him to do so. We would also suggest that you keep his doctor informed of any supplements that he is taking.

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 your husband wishes to take this to lower cholesterol I would recommend a dose of two to three tablets daily.
