    Description

    What are plant sterols?

    Our natural plant sterols block the absorption of dietary cholesterol in the body. Also known as phytosterols, the ‘plant’ in plant sterols refers to the fact they come from fruit, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds; while the ‘sterols’ indicates that they are similar in structure to the cholesterol found in our own bodies.

    Plant Sterols help to lower the “bad cholesterol”, known as LDL (low-density lipoprotein), by competing with it for absorption in the intestines. 

    Why choose Healthspan's Plant Sterols 800 mg tablets?

    Due to the similarity to cholesterol, these plant sterols tablets can stop the cholesterol in the things you eat being absorbed in the small intestine. As a result, plant sterols can keep your cholesterol levels at a normal level, or even better, help lower your blood cholesterol and therefore reduce the risk in the development of coronary heart disease.

    By taking our Plant Sterols tablets, you can get your recommended daily intake without the added calories of fat found in sterol-enriched margarine of dairy produce. What’s more, they represent a natural way to manage your cholesterol. In order to obtain the beneficial effect of lowering blood cholesterol our experts recommend taking three tablets daily, providing 2400 mg plant sterols (as well as high levels of the active molecules ‘beta−sitosterols’).

     

    *800 mg plant sterols daily help maintain normal cholesterol levels. Cholesterol lowering benefit obtained with a daily intake of 1500 mg − 3000 mg plant sterols.

    Plant Sterols Tablets

    Plant Sterols are available in a large pack size of 90 tablets, and are individually blister-packed for optimum freshness. Each tablet can be easily popped through the foil when required.

    Every tablet contains 800mg plant sterols, allowing you to tailor your dose from one tablet a day (to maintain cholesterol levels) to a maximum of three tablets for a daily dose of 2,400mg (to lower blood cholesterol in as little as 2-3 weeks.)

    Plant Sterols 800mg are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and do not contain the calories and fat found in sterol-enriched margarine or dairy produce.

    When to take Plant Sterols

    Like all supplements, plant sterols need to be taken regularly in order to benefit your health and lower cholesterol levels effectively.

    For the best results, they should be taken with food – ideally at mealtimes. If you only take one tablet a day, take it with your main meal; otherwise, research suggests that taking plant sterols up to three times a day rather than in one large dose will provide the maximum benefit.

    This is because of how plant sterols work in the body – competing with cholesterol for absorption in the intestine. As well as blocking cholesterol obtained directly from our diet, plant sterols also inhibit the reabsorption of cholesterol that is made in the liver.

    As a result, less cholesterol makes it way into the bloodstream, and more is removed from the body through the intestine.

    The Benefits of Plant Sterols

    Maintaining normal cholesterol levels reduces the risk of various cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke, which is why Plant Sterols are a popular heart health supplement.

    Plant sterols are found naturally in nuts, seeds, fruit, and vegetables, so it is possible to increase your intake through diet. However, sterols in plant foods are naturally bound to fibre, which limits their action, while those found in supplements are more available to the body. Plant Sterols tablets also ensure a consistent daily sterols dose.

    The best approach for healthy cholesterol is therefore to maintain a healthy diet alongside the use of Plant Sterols tablets.
