Supplement Description

Following customer feedback, we have made some technical improvements to our Plant Sterols tablet to ensure that once swallowed, it dissolves in the gut a little quicker than before. Our new, improved tablet was launched on 19th June 2019.

What are plant sterols? 

Plant sterols are considered to be a very effective food that can lower cholesterol as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. They block cholesterol from being re-absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream, and any cholesterol not absorbed is simply excreted. This is why diets high in plant sterols can help to control blood cholesterol levels. 

Cholesterol normally is consumed from the HDL fat that is abundant in animal sourced fats. Our Plant Sterol capsules contain the 'plant equivalent' of cholesterol - known as phytosterols. When consumed by humans Plant sterols help to limit the amount of regular cholesterol that is absorbed into the bloodstream, this contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

Why take plant sterols?

Experts from the European Commission have confirmed that, together with a healthy balance diet, plant sterols can help to lower raised blood cholesterol levels at intakes of 1.5 to 3g per day (2-4 of our tablets).

High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. 

Plant Sterols are gaining prominence as an additive in many dairy spreads and liquids, but we think a capsule is an excellent alternative source, as you eliminate the extra calories and fats that are present in dairy products.  Although plant sterols are naturally present in vegetable oils and grains, modern diets tend to be low in these important nutrients, and so it may be difficult to always achieve optimum levels from diet alone. 

Thoroughly researched and approved

Plant sterols have been thoroughly researched for use in foods and food supplements and are fully approved by the European Commission. Our potent plant sterols tablets provide 800mg of Phytosterols (plant sterols) each and are fully vegetarian and vegan friendly. They provide high levels of Beta Sitosterol, as well as other sterol compounds. We recommend you taken them with food and a glass of water for optimum intake.

Safe to take alongside cholesterol lowering medicines

Plant Sterols can be used effectively alongside statins or fibrates because they work in different ways and may give additional benefit.
