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 is normally 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.

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 tablet 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 take them with food and a glass of water for optimum absorption.

A daily intake of at least 0.8g (800mg) of Plant Sterols contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

Review Details
good price fast service and easy to read instruction, well done.
Service rating: My order arrived promptly and well packed. The product was of good quality
Product: I have high cholesterol and hopefully these will help lower it
Service rating: Order arrived promptly, well packaged and a good quality product.
Product: Was looking for a one a day tablet.I take them to help lower my cholesterol.
Service rating: The Plant Sterols arrived promptly. The packaging is well designed, with a snap closure that's still working after several weeks. The pills are a fair size but not difficult to swallow. I've been taking Plant Sterols for a few years since being told I had high cholesterol, probably as a result of some medication that I have to take for a health condition. Since starting to take Plant Sterols I haven't heard anything more about having high cholesterol from my doctor, so it seems like the Plant Sterols are working!
Product: The pills are a fair size but not difficult to swallow. I take Plant Sterols because I was told by my GP that I had high cholesterol several years ago, which was probably caused by medication that I have to take for a health condition. I have regular blood tests but since starting to take the Plant Sterols I have heard no more about having high cholesterol, so hopefully they are working!
Service rating: I think that your service was very prompt and fast. Your packaging is fantastic and your product appears to be good.
Product: As before, all very good and an amazing price.
Always quick delivery and they have the best packaging in the sector. Great value too!
Service rating: As this was my first order from Just Vitamins I phoned in. The lines were busy but I was given the option of leaving my number and someone would get back to me, which they did. I placed my order, was kept informed of it's progress and received it quickly. I like the environmentally friendly packaging and I thought the price was good.
I then received an email telling me that an account had been created for me. I just needed to activate it and choose a password which I didn't like so much.
While I appreciate that it probably will make it easier for future orders, it almost feels like pressure sales and I would have preferred to have been given the option.
However, I realise that I don't have to activate the account and won't let it deter me from possible future orders.
Product: I am hoping that this product will help lower my bad cholesterol but I won't know until my next blood test.
Good products, always great value & quick delivery
