Plant Sterols

  • Assists in maintaining cholesterol in a normal range
  • Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels5
  • Supports immune system function6,7
  • Exhibits anti-inflammatory properties8

Phytosterols are plant compounds that resemble animal cholesterol and perform similar functions in plant life.1 These substances can only enter the body through dietary sources, unlike cholesterol which is produced within the body itself.

Plant sterols, a group of phytosterols, are an effective natural supplement for maintaining healthy cholesterol.2,3 By inhibiting the absorption of cholesterol from the intestinal tract, plant sterols actually help block cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Sterols have been shown to reduce total and LDL cholesterol by up to 15 percent.4

These compounds have been used in cholesterol-reducing margarines, but many of these products contain unhealthy fats as well, so Ray & Terry recommend taking plant sterols as a supplement in pill form instead.
