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.

Keeps cholesterol lower

22 February 2015

At a well women check at my Drs recently, I was told that I have a cholesterol of 6.4.
Some years ago I had a similar reading and took plant sterols. My cholesterol went down to 5. I have decided to take these again but 3 tablets a day as recommended in the hope that they work again. Which I'm sure they will. Taking a higher dose may even lower my cholesterol further. I also eat a very healthy diet with lots of fruit and veg but just need to up my exercise regime.
