Key Benefits

  • Blocks the absorption of dietary cholesterol
  • Standardised levels of beta-sitosterols
  • Expert levels recommended in clinical studies

Product overview

  • Suitable for Vegetarians
  • Suitable for Vegans
  • 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 have tried not using the 800mg plant sterols for a while, then using them again, and my feeling of well-being improves when using the product.

Keeps my cholesterol down without the reported risks of statins.

29 May 2014

Am taking this for a slightly raised cholesterol level, and until my next blood test in six months' time I will not be able to assess its efficacy.
I have used many other Healthspan products with good results - some of which were in addition to those expected!

29 May 2014

I think these pills are a miracle - they have lowered my cholesterol and I haven't even finished the whole box. I will not only be ordering more for myself, but for my husband as well.

Thank you for your review - It's excellent to hear that your Cholesterol levels have lowered. We hope your Husband benefits from them also.

To reduce cholesterol

28 May 2014

We buy these for my husband's high cholesterol.

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.
