Research has shown that phytosterols, plant-based compounds structurally similar to cholesterol,1 compete with cholesterol for absorption and thus play a key role in supporting healthy cholesterol levels. According to the Food and Drug Administration, “products containing at least 0.65g per serving of plant sterol esters, taken twice daily with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.” The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of Health suggest the use of plant sterols to promote cardiovascular health. The Plant Sterols complex includes a variety of purified plant sterols: campesterol, stigmasterol, B-sitosterol and other cholesterol-like compounds. Two capsules provide the recommended 1.3g of plant sterol esters for maximum cardiovascular benefits.
