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.

My husband had a cholesterol of 11.7 - after a few lifestyle and diet changes he started taking Plant Sterol twice a day - his cholesterol now is just 5.7! They work! And no need to have stations from his GP!

Hopefully the plant sterols will help to reduce my cholesterol

I need to take three of these per day to keep my cholesterol levels under control. I only wish there was a super concentrated tablet I could take!

Thank you for your review - We can confirm that all three can be taken at the same time without reducing efficacy is this is more convenient for you.
