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 choose Healthspan 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’.

*Cholesterol lowering benefit obtained with a daily intake of 1,500mg – 3,000mg plant sterols

Early days but has helped both my wife and i with Cholestral Control

25 February 2017

My doctor said to keep taking these as it helps my cholesrerol

25 February 2017

Am taking these instead of statins and when I last had my cholesterol checked they seemed to be holding it at the same level as the statins, but hopefully without the side effects!

25 February 2017

My husband has some health issues and this product is one of several which are supposed to help. Since splant sterols apparently do no harm and can do some good, we think they are worth trying.

25 February 2017

I hope they are doing whot thy say

24 February 2017

keeps the cholesterol at bay, no statins for me!!!!!!!

24 February 2017

Plant sterols unlike other products cannot be measured by how you might feel better as lowering your cholesterol can only be measured by blood test which I intend doing at some point during this year

24 February 2017

Cholesterol levels dropped when I took this supplement before and I would rather take plant sterols than statins.

23 February 2017

Hopefully, it helps to lower my cholesterol, as I don't want to take statins

23 February 2017

With healthy diet plant sterols keep the cholesterol low enough so we don't worry about it. Very good product.

21 February 2017

I have been taking them for about 3 months now and my cholestoral level has come down to an acceptable level. I plan to continue using them, in a small dose, as a precaution.

No side effects ....and veggie product

It's great to hear that you are pleased with our Plant Sterols.

15 February 2017

Easy to take. I have only recently started taking these, so time will tell if chloresterol levels are controlled when I have bloods taken in three months. I will be continuing to tale these as it it is more economical than the expensive margarines and products containing sterols + zero calories!

Thank you for your comments on our Plant Sterols we do hope that you find this brings your cholesterol down to a level you are happy with.
