Phytosterols (also known as plant sterols) are naturally occurring plant substances. A daily intake of 2g of phytosterols has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol which is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.
Phytosterols (plant sterols) occur naturally in plant materials such as nuts, grains, seeds, leaves and vegetable oils.
Phytosterols can now be found in "special" margarines, spreads and yoghurts etc.
Consuming phytosterols in sufficient quantities has the potential to:
Reduce total cholesterol & reduce LDL cholesterol - without affecting HDL cholesterol or triglycerides
Phytosterols appear to act by decreasing the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine.
Studies have also shown that phytosterols appear to enhance the effects of statins on lowering cholesterol.
