About plant sterols

Managing your cholesterol is simple with our gummies powered by physician-recommended plant sterols. Our gummy is not a drug. It is a dietary supplement containing plant sterols, which naturally block the body’s absorption of cholesterol.

Small amounts of plant sterols are in the foods we eat every day, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and vegetable oils. Supplementing your diet with plant sterols can help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.*

About Cholesterol

About cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy substance present in every cell of our body. It serves many important functions, including helping our bodies make hormones and digest food.

When there is too much LDL (bad) cholesterol, or not enough HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood, cholesterol can build up inside the walls of blood vessels, making them narrower, and making it harder for blood to flow. In time, this can raise the risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.
