What are Plant Sterols?

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 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.

Why Healthspan's Plant Sterols?

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 - 3g plant sterols.

Having been told by doctor that I have high cholesterol and after looking into diet which showed no reason for this and nothing I could change, except to low fat cheese. Found the cholesterol lowering products you could buy from supermarkets an expensive option. Started taking plant sterols from Healthspan and have been taking them for a couple of years and cholesterol has lowered, not perfect but definitely better.

We are delighted to hear the Plant Sterols is working well for you.

Helpful in keeping cholesterol under control

19 July 2016

Since I started taking plant sterols my overall cholesterol has been gradually decreasing and I find it a lot easier to take a pill than to stuff myself on foods I either do not like or cannot afford. There is no specific reason why my cholesterol levels are high, it seems it is hereditary as my bother also has high cholesterol and both of us cook mostly for ourselves and try to eat healthily and sensibly. I am due for an annual health overview soon and hope the good news will continue!
