Plant-sterols-800mg - 120 Tablets
It is estimated that two out of three adults in the UK have raised cholesterol, and heart disease remains one of the country&
39;s biggest health concerns. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) carry cholesterol from the liver to cells around the body.
However, if our dietary supply of LDL cholesterol outweighs the body&
39;s demand, excess cholesterol is deposited along artery walls, which is why LDL cholesterol is often referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol. An effective means of lowering the risk of heart disease is to reduce the level of harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood.
The Benefits of Plant Sterols
The European Commission has approved the use of plant sterols as a proven and safe means of reducing total cholesterol. Plant sterols have a similar structure to our own cholesterol, which means that they block the body&
39;s absorption of cholesterol into the blood.
Studies show that daily supplementation with 1500-3000mg is the range required to decrease cholesterol levels. Plus, plant sterols have been shown to have no detrimental effect on HDL (good) cholesterol levels. These health claims have all been approved and confirmed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
