USFDA allowed health claim: “Foods or beverages containing at least 400mg plant sterols, when consumed twice a day with meals for a total intake of 800mg/day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
The overall effect in clinical studies has been an average "bad" (LDL) cholesterol decline of 8 - 15% with no known adverse side effects.
What are plant sterols?
Plant sterols naturally occur in small quantities in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, grain products, fruit and vegetables.
What do plant sterols do?
Plant sterols have been known for their cholesterol lowering properties for over 50 years. Although we all consume plant sterols every day in our diet, the amount we eat is typically not enough to have a cholesterol lowering effect.
How do plant sterols lower cholesterol?
Plant sterols actively remove cholesterol from the body by partly blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the gut. The cholesterol that is not absorbed is removed from the body, resulting in a lowering of total and LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels.
CholesBlock is formulated with 400mg of Plant Sterols in combination with the clinically proven Sytrinol to support heart healthy levels of cholesterol naturally.
