Plant Sterols reduce total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol

Dec 16, 2009

The supplement Plant Sterols is an established non-drug agent for reducing total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol and Sterols are recommended for managing cholesterol by world renowned health care institutions. In this randomized, placebo controlled study 50 subjects with moderately high cholesterol were given a soy drink that included 2.6 grams of Plant Sterol Esters each day or soy drink without Sterols for 8 weeks (placebo). The patients maintained their regular diet and level of physical activity. The Sterols reduced LDL-cholesterol by 7% compared to the start of the study and was much better than soy drink alone. Sterols also reduced total-cholesterol significantly. The study is published in the October 6 th , 2008 issue of the journal Lipids in Health and Disease.
