Plant Sterols (also known as phytosterols) are similar in structure to the body’s own cholesterol and act in a similar way in plant cell membranes as cholesterol does in our own human cells.

Due to the structural similarity, plant sterols are able to block of the absorption of dietary cholesterol in the small intestine without being absorbed themselves and have been shown to lower blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.

Healthspan’s Plant Sterols are a convenient way of getting the recommended daily intake without the added calories or fat found in sterol-enriched margarine or dairy produce.

Each tablet provides 800mg of plant sterols which is the level shown to maintain normal cholesterol levels. In order to obtain the beneficial effect of lowering blood cholesterol our experts recommend taking three tablets daily, providing 2,400mg plant sterols and high levels of the active molecules, ‘beta-sitosterols’.

*Beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 1.5g - 2.4g plant sterols.

I have only just started in the last month so at present I cannot tell whether my chlorestol has lowered from the last test.

01 March 2015

Took these over a period of two years as a less harmful alternative to Statins. Took a few months but they have worked. Can recommend them.

Reduction in Colestoral

I don't know if Plant Sterols actually work, (I haven't had a Cholesterol Test for a ridiculously long time ^_^;) I just know that my stomach doesn't like Simvastatin very much. :,( I buy Healthspan's Plant Sterols because of their Strength & Price, and although Boots' Plant Sterols may be stronger, you can only take 2,000mg a day of theirs and per milligram they cost almost twice as much.

Prior to recommendation by an English friend, I was taking drugs prescribed by the doctor to control cholesterol. The Plant Sterols combat cholesterol and within a month had the desired effect.
