Key Benefits

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

Product overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
  • 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 take these along with a plant sterol drink to make sure I have the maximum amount each day. Cholesterol still high but presumably it would be higher without.

My Dr is pleased with me as my cholesterol is coming down without taking Statins. I am not qualified to say whether this is due to the plant sterols or my slight change in diet. I personally feel it's worth the cost if there is a chance that the sterols have contributed to the lower cholesterol.

Thank you for your review.

I have been told to reduce my cholesterol levels and the doctor's keen for me to take statins. I am exceedingly wary about the side effects of statins and resorted some three years ago to taking Plant Sterols tablets from Healthspan. I BELIEVE they have helped, because my cholesterol levels remain borderline. Of course, I've no way of knowing if my levels would have remained borderline WITHOUT the Plant Sterols - but I've no intention of stopping taking them!

Thank you for your review.

Well, since I began to use plant sterols I have witnessed a decline in my cholesterol levels from bloods taken this year compared to last year, by 0.3mml. While I can not put this down solely to plant sterols, as I have also curtailed a smoking habit during this time too, I am satisfied that they have been a factor. Considering my weight and my age I am able to avoid statins, still, and this process of cholesterol management is ongoing, as I have now adjusted my diet to dairy free. I feel that it is worth supplementing with plant sterols though I try to make sure my overall diet is conducive with a healthy outlook in this instance by ingesting good quantities of fruit and veg. I guess there is an element of placebo with all supplements but I have come to the conclusion that while supplementation does not make one superhuman it does act to allow the body to have the choice to take up nutrients that may not be there otherwise and in terms of digestion to have more plant sterols, even if I have had a meal rich in fruit and veg can only go towards better isolation of LDL for excretion.

These seem to have brought my cholesterol level down, a month of fat free diet only brought it down from 7.1 to 7.0! Taking 3 Plant Sterols a day has further lowered it to 6.7, I am very pleased.
