- Beta Sitosterol is naturally occuring substance found in many vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains.
- Preliminary scientific evidence suggests that plant phytosterols may help to maintain normal cholesterol levels when consumed as part of a diet low in fat and cholesterol.
- Possible mechanism of action: may bind cholesterol in the intestinal tract, potentially limiting the amount of cholesterol that is absorbed by the body.
- Without actually absorbing the cholesterol, the body is able to excrete the portion of the cholesterol that is blocked from entering the body.
- Beta Sitosterol can also aid in muscle recovery after a hard workout.
Phytosterols are natural components of plants, including vegetables and grains. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that plant phytosterols can help to support healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range. The three main phytosterols in phytosterol complex are beta
-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol. They are natural, safe, and derived entirely from plant sources.*
