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.

It’s great to hear that we are doing a good job.

We really don't know if they work but you just try and hope.

We would recommend this product be taken for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks, however maximum benefits may not be obtained until at least 3 to 4 months of continuous usage.

The only bad thing to say about these is that they are quite big, so can be hard to swallow.

Thank you for your review - We have passed your comments onto our Product Development Team for their considerations.

Ridiculous that you can not ship direct to the Netherlands, particularly as your dispatching facility is in the Netherlands. Fortunately I live 5 Km form the German Border.
Plant Sterols and their effectiveness are generally not known here and there is a large potential market going begging,
