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 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.

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 - 2.4g plant sterols.

22 July 2015

I buy one product regularly from Healthspan (plant sterols). I am very happy with the quality of the product but I was a little cross when they changed the dose size and discontinued the sizzle that I had previously bought - with, of course, a corresponding increase in price.

21 July 2015

It may lower cholesterol though the evidence is not very strong. Instructions on the pack are a bit misleading.

21 July 2015

Definitely lowers cholesterol.

Am taking but won't know the effect for a while until I get a test,

Good service but very poor and complicated discount offers do not inspire customer loyalty or incentives to purchase in bulk

Regularly use as I had adverse reaction to prescribed statins. Thesereally do work.

A good part of a sensible diet and lifestyle - it doesn't make sense not to take them.
