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.

Gives me everything I need

We are feeling well since taking this product, and a bonus is that I have been losing weight slowly. A result of the Plant Sterols?

18 September 2016

Hope it's doing its stuff as I have stopped taking statins a year ago, using sterols instead. My doctor doesn't call me in to discuss my annual blood test unless he's worried, so I don't know how the cholesterol is.

My only quibble is that I miss the old letterbox-friendly plastic boxes, they were ace. I kept some and decant all my pills into them as nothing else is as convenient. PLEASE RETURN THEM.

Have been taking these for some time and have no trouble with my cholesterol now so presume they are doing what they claim
