Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free Gelatin Free

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 take these to lower cholesterol, my cholesterol has come down from 6.1 to 5.8, but I am only taking 2 a day not 3, 3 a day may have given better results, but it works out at £13 per month which is expensive.

Excellent service, fast delivery and very competitively priced products

25 June 2014

To help lower my cholesterol

25 June 2014

As Above

25 June 2014

This is certainly for helping lower my cholesterol, and must be working according to my yearly blood tests, they are brilliant.

25 June 2014

Only lowers cholesterol by 5% according to doctor.

25 June 2014

i take it to reduce fat absorption from what I eat.

We like the automatic dispatch of repeat orders but would like a delivery note or invoice included.

25 June 2014

Although my cholesterol level was not high it had increased slowly over couple of years. There is no way I would consider taking Statins so I have tried these. My cholesterol level is back to where is was, so result. As I now only take one of these a day I think they are posted out too regularly. I will ring to discuss this.

Thank you for your review.

Laura, Healthspan Customer Care

Thank you for your review.

Sophie, Healthspan Customer Care

25 June 2014

My only comment is whether some of the packaging is a little unnecessary - blister packs could be replaced by smaller bottles simply housing the tablets. I do accept though they in turn would have to sit in perhaps in sealed 'jiffy' bags with the customer address on.

Thank you for your review.

Laura, Healthspan Customer Care

20 June 2014

Cholesterol has lowered from 6.7 to 5.1

18 June 2014

Unable to verify efficiency until next blood test

17 June 2014

Hope it helps with cholesterol rating

17 June 2014

for the first time ever, I complained recently as a money off voucher on goods purchased in April 2014 had already expired in December 2013! They replied promptly saying that I could use the voucher on a telephone booking but not over the internet - they still give good service and I will continue to use their products!!!

17 June 2014

it has helped lower myself + my partners cholesterol, so very pleased with it, when our wages allow!

17 June 2014

I am not a scientist but some how plant sterols seem to reduce cholestral.
It may be working with healthy diet or it just works.

17 June 2014

Over twelve months taking these tablets 2 or 3 daily my cholesterol fell from 6.2 to 5.7. I am hoping it will fall even further with continuing usage.

17 June 2014

The beta-sitosterol element is said to be good for that men's challenge "BPH"

17 June 2014

As Above

17 June 2014

I use these instead of the various drinks & spreads

17 June 2014

The tablets are easy to take with my breakfast drink. I needed to reduce my cholesterol from 7.8 and I believe these tablets have helped. Notwithstanding I have changed my diet and am taking more exercise. Nevertheless, my combined approach has reduced my cholesterol, even though I'm not sure which action has been most effective.

17 June 2014

have not tried it long enough to notice the difference.

17 June 2014

This product did not reduce my cholesterol levels, I was disappointed after reading the reviews on the website.

A less worrisome product than statins. I have been taking them for three years since I had concerns about my cholesterol levels.. I took statins for few weeks but could not stand the side effects like painful muscles. So I started these sterols and am happy. Thank you.

I don't have a cholesterol problem but these do keep it in check. Ater not using these for a year my cholesterol rose by 0.2 then after using for a few months dropped by 0.1

05 June 2014

Plant sterols help to keep my chloresterol levels down.

05 June 2014

Although I have not tested my cholesterol level recently I have not had any of the side effects which I experienced when taking Statins

05 June 2014

Helps to beat cholesterol, hopefully, easier and probably cheaper than wasting money buying those products containing plant sterols

05 June 2014

unable to comment properly as not had cholesterol tested so don't know if effective.

It has lowered both my and my husband's cholesterol

03 June 2014

Reduces my cholestoral

03 June 2014

Excellent

02 June 2014

I can't say they are excellent, as opposed to good, because I simply don'tknow. But I am satisfied that my GP is satisfied with my cholesterol level. I was on statins but hated them and asked my GP if I might try plant sterols instead, alongside a virtually (or at least a very reduced) animal fat free diet. I also take Healthspan's 1,000 mg Opti-Omega 3 fish oil, which as far as I can tell isn't doing me any harm and may be doing some good! How can I know? I chose that one because it contained the highest DHA & EPA in their range since I have both raised blood pressure and atrial fibrillation (and take medication for control) and a family history of heart problems and my GP approves, too.

02 June 2014

Looking to reduce cholesterol

31 May 2014

Has lowered my levels of bad cholesterol. Can it raise levels of good cholesterol too as mine are now extremely good.

31 May 2014

no idea whether it helps or not - precautionary principle only

30 May 2014

I get my cholesterol checked yearly since I have 2 siblings with high cholesterol and mine remains within the norm. I put this down to taking plant sterols regularly

28 May 2014

My cholesterol level is at the high end of 'normal', but given my age, 73, and family history of heart problems, my GP advised I get the level down. Plant Sterols then became part of my dietary control and my cholesterol level is now lower. I will continue to take them as I am sure they are helping.
