Ultra Strength 1,000mg Phytosterol Complex
Cholesterol & Prostate Health
Complex of Beta-Sitosterol, Campesterol, and Stigmasterol
Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten Fre
Phytosterols, a group of sterol and stanol esters that are naturally found in plant cells, have been shown to assist in the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels as well as healthy prostate function , . Being structurally similar to the body’s cholesterol, phytosterols when consumed directly compete with cholesterol for absorption in the digestive tract. This competition results in a decreased absorption of dietary cholesterol and a reduced blood cholesterol level . Similarly, phytosterols can bind to the prostate gland in men helping to reduce inflammation , .
While phytosterols are naturally present in fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes, it is only in a limited quantity; the average person consumes less than 500mg of phytosterols per day as part of a healthy diet. This falls well below the 2g of phytosterols recommended for those with high cholesterol by the National Cholesterol Education Program.
To help meet your phytosterol goals, HTN offers a phytosterol complex containing 1g of phytosterols per serving. This vegan capsule is Non-GMO and allergen free.
Foods containing at least 0.65g per serving of vegetable oil plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of HTN’s Ultra Strength Beta Sitosterol supplies 1g (1,000mg) of vegetable oil sterol esters.
