Plant sterols are healthy fatty components that provide nutritional support for people with cholesterol levels already within normal range and borderline cholesterol. Plant sterols have great benefits for cholesterol support. Research has shown a direct link between consuming plant sterols and lower levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol, in the body. Foods and supplements containing at least 650mg per serving of plant sterol esters, consumed twice per day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, help support healthy cholesterol levels and may reduce the risk of heart disease when taken as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
Oat ß-glucans are a fiber from oat bran that have the ability to bind to cholesterol that is present in foods we consume, thereby escorting some cholesterol out of the body before it can be absorbed.
Red Yeast Rice is natural substance extracted from rice that has been fermented with a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus. Red yeast rice naturally has a list of nutrients for borderline cholesterol levels. These include monacolin K, sterols, isoflavones, and good fats called mono-unsaturates.
Cranberry Fruit Extract provides the appealing flavor to the powder, but also has antioxidant proanthocyanidins to support healthy circulation and protect arteries.
Each serving of InVite’s fruit-flavored Sterols Plus Hx® powder supplies 700mg of Plant Phytosterol Esters for a total of 1.4 grams. This product also contains 1200mg of Red Yeast Rice, 1500mg of Oat Beta Glucan (Nutrim) and 500mg of Cranberry Fruit Extract with 25mg standardized antioxidant proanthocyanidins.
The FDA has officially approved a health claim on phytosterols: Foods containing at least 0.65 grams per serving of vegetable oil plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.

What are Plant Sterols?
Phytosterols, often referred to as Plant Sterol Esters, are a group of compounds found naturally in plant cell membranes. Plant Sterols are chemically similar to the natural cholesterol in your body, but they are produced by plants, not animals. When consumed in either food or supplement form, they battle with LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) for absorption into the digestive system. This blocks the saturation of LDL cholesterol, resulting in maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels. Well-documented studies have shown a direct link between taking plant sterols and LDL cholesterol. In fact, the research on phytosterols and cholesterol is strong enough that the National Cholesterol Education has recommended that people with high cholesterol consume adequate amounts each day. The FDA has also released an official claim on the use and effectiveness of phytosterol consumption: Foods containing at least 0.65 grams per serving of vegetable oil plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
One of the best aspects of plant sterols is that, according to studies, they seem to work on nearly every individual. In several studies, every participant experienced positive results from consuming plant sterols, although it’s important to remember that there are always exceptions. Work with a certified InVite nutritionist or Naturopathic Doctor to determine the best plan for your personal needs.
What is Oat Beta Glucan?
InVite’s Sterols Plus Powder contains 1500mg of Nutrim®, which delivers high levels of liberated oat ß-glucans. Decades of research show that oat ß-glucans, like those in Nutrim®, lower cholesterol naturally via four possible mechanisms*:
1. Oat ß-glucans work with the body’s natural mechanism of scavenging cholesterol. The body has a “built-in” ability to flush out excess cholesterol via bile produced by the liver. However, a large amount of the bile can be reabsorbed. Oat ß-glucans have an affinity for binding with bile and escorting it out of the body, resulting in naturally lower cholesterol.
2. Oat ß-glucans have the ability to bind to cholesterol that is present in foods we consume, thereby escorting some cholesterol out of the body before it can be absorbed.
3. Oat ß-glucans bind to some of the saturated fats and trans-fats in food, helping to flush them out before absorption. Saturated fat and trans-fat are associated with elevated cholesterol levels.
4. Good bacteria (probiotics) can transform oat ß-glucans into substances that block cholesterol production in the liver.
