Derived from soy, plant sterols naturally block the body's absorption of cholesterol, lowering total and LDL (bad) cholesterol without affecting HDL (good) cholesterol. Learn more about how plant sterols lower cholesterol.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): Products containing at least 400mg of plant sterols per serving, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily intake of at least 800mg as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of our Regular Strength product supplies 466mg of plant sterols for a daily intake of 932mg. One serving of our Clinical Strength product supplies 700mg of plant sterols for a daily intake of 1400mg.
Individual results may vary. Supplementation with plant sterol esters typically reduces cholesterol by 5-15% within several weeks. Adding other lifestyle changes, including a heart healthy diet, can reduce cholesterol by up to 30%. Repeat lipid testing is recommended.
