What are Plant Sterols?

Plant sterols have a similar appearance to our own cholesterol. This means that once they are in the body, they can block the absorption of cholesterol from the digestive tract into the blood. Any unabsorbed cholesterol is then removed from the body as part of waste material. Studies show that daily supplementation with plant sterols can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels by up to 20% over a four week period. Plus, plant sterols have been shown to have no detrimental effect on HDL (good) cholesterol levels. The European Commission has approved the use of plant sterols supplements as a proven and safe means of reducing total cholesterol.

 

Understanding Cholesterol

You will often see LDL cholesterol referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) carry cholesterol from the liver to cells around the body. If the supply of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol outweighs the body’s demand, it can cause excess cholesterol to be deposited in arteries around the body. Over time this can lead to harmful build-ups of cholesterol. In contrast, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is often referred to as ‘good’ cholesterol. These high-density lipoproteins carry cholesterol away from the fatty build-ups and back to liver. Once returned to the liver, cholesterol is broken down and removed from the body.

 

Premium Plant Sterols 800mg

It is estimated that two thirds of the adult UK population have raised cholesterol, and heart disease remains one of the country’s biggest killers. Lowering LDL cholesterol levels has been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, without the side effects or price tags of statin drugs. Our Plant Sterols 800mg contain powerful levels of beta-sitosterol and have been carefully developed based on the strengths used in successful clinical trials. This pharmaceutical grade supplement is manufactured in the UK to EU standards to ensure the highest levels of quality are always maintained.

    To lower high cholesterol 
    Julie G, London
    I recently had a cholesterol test done and it read quite high. I decided to take these tabs to see if they would help at all. I had another test done today and my cholesterol is down. I am extremely happy because this is great and i have been taking for 8 weeks already. My diet is still pretty poor but it's a definite start with these to help. I have now convinced my husband to give them a whirl too. I will let you know how he fairs!!

    I started taking plant sterols after being told my cholesteral was higher than it should be at 7.9. I am a driving instructor and 51 yrs old. I do no excersise and play no sport. I am not very overweight maybe 8-12lbs more than I need. I have been taking these tablets now for 5 months and today had my cholesteral measured at 5.2. I can honestly tell you I have not changed anything about my lifestyle. So in conclusion I think these tablets are fantastic.

    More than just an aid for Cholesterol 
    Agnes Brown, Verwood
    I know the plant sterols are an aid to help against bad cholesterol but I take them to reduce the risk of heart disease. I had a heart attack last august and am blessed to still be around at 83, I did buy some at my local health food shop but I find yours to be better value, so far since taking them there hasn't been any trouble with my heart. Lets hope it stays that way.

    I had my cholesterol level taken 8 months ago it had slowly crept up from 5.7 last year to 6.3 despite a healthy diet and active lifestyle. I've taken your Plant Sterol tablets for a month now and my cholesterol level has dropped to 6.0 which is a step in the right direction. No side effects!! Highly recommend!!

    Q: Can you confirm whether I should take these tablets all at the same time or spread them out throughout the day ie dosage 1-4 all at once or take a couple in the morning afternoon and then at night (up to 4)
    A: Where you have to take two or more capsules or tablets of the same preparation, it is a good idea to spread these out over the day in order to maximize absorption and cause less fluctuation in blood levels. We suggest taking two after your breakfast meal and another two after your evening meal. If you wish to take 3 then take one after breakfast then two after evening meal.
  • 8th March 2014 - Ted
    Q: Hi could you tell me please does your product contain Brassica sterol,camper sterol and beta sterol and if so in what quantities. Regards Ted.
    A: Our Plant Sterols 800mg only contains powerful levels of beta-sitosterol and have been carefully developed based on the strengths used in successful clinical trials. It contains 800mg (90%) of Phytosterol.

  • 10th June 2013 - Iain
    Q: If I take 3 tablets a day should the tablets be taken all at once or spread over the day, please ?
    A:

    Unless otherwise stated on the label, we would suggest that you take the tablets at the same time everyday. However, this is entirely at your discretion.

    Q: I am diabetic and my cholesterol reading is fairly high. I have tried taking 2 different types of statin on the advice of my Diabetic Nurse but both have had dreadful side effects when combined with Tramadol and/or Pregabalin. Are you of the opinion that Plant sterols would be effective? I have a Diabetic Review in 7 days and would find your opinion useful. Thank you.
    A:

    We do strongly recommend Plant Sterols for helping to lower cholesterol levels; therefore we would certainly advise taking this product if you are attempting to get your cholesterol levels down.  However, as we are not medically trained, we would suggest consulting your GP.

     

  • 23rd January 2013 - pat kelsey
    Q: It says on the cholestral drinks that only take between 1.5 to 2.5g per day so would taking 2 tablets be ok. thank you
    A:

    The recommended dosage for our Plant Sterols 800mg is 1-4 tablets a day, therefore taking 2 per day would be perfectly fine.

  • 16th October 2012 - Keith Hooper
    Q: I take a statin each day and I am very interested in your plant sterols. The question is would I take a statin and plant sterol together or at different times of the day?.
    A:

    We advise to take 1-4 a day of the Plant Sterols. As we are not medically trained, we would advise that you consult your GP in regards to how many statins to take alongside this product.

  • 30th September 2012 - lynne comer
    Q: can plant sterol be taken alongside statins
    A:

    Statins work in a different way from sterols. Statins inhibit an enzyme in the liver, so less cholesterol is made and released into your circulation. Because they work in a different way from statins, plant sterols can be combined with statin therapy to lower cholesterol levels even further. Please know that we are not medically trained. Before taking any herbal supplements with prescribed medications, please consult your GP or local pharmacist.

    Q: I have difficulty swollowing tablets/ capsules and wondered how large these Plant Sterols 800 where. Thank you Susan
    A:

    Our Plant Sterols 800mg is in tablet form. Each tablet is approximately 19.5mm x 8.2mm.

  • 18th February 2012 - Margaret Talbot
    Q: How do you calculate how many tablets you should take?
    A:

    We recommend that you take between 1-4 tablets on a daily basis. If you have seriously high LDL or total cholesterol levels then you will benefit from taking 4 tablets per day. However, if you are simply looking to maintain healthy cholesterol levels then you may find 2 tablets to be beneficial. 

  • 29th January 2012 - Paul Jenkins
    Q:

    Hi. Am looking at your Plant Sterols 800mg product and wondered if you could answer a question or two?

    Does the product display the composition of the phytosterol used - breakdown of the component parts by percentage?

    Does the product display whether or not it is wheat, gluten and yeast free?

    A:

    Each tablet provides a 90% Phytosterol 90% extract, providing 800mg. This product is gluten, wheat, and yeast free.

  • 1st December 2011 - Piri
