Description

Combination of Brassica napus plant sterols:

  • Supports the maintenance of cardiovascular health by reducing low density lipoprotein (LDL) and total cholesterol
  • Provides 1300 mg of plant sterol esters per daily dose

Col-Sterol is a blend of plant sterol esters that helps to decrease total and LDL cholesterol levels. Plant sterols have a similar structure to cholesterol, but differ in their side chain groups.1

Plant sterol intake leads to a continuous cycle of decreased dietary cholesterol absorption, increased cholesterol use for bile acid synthesis, decreased bile acid reabsorption, and increased cholesterol excretion in the feces.2

In a double blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with 1.3

g of sterol esters daily for four weeks decreased total cholesterol and LDL levels by approximately 5 and 4%, respectively, in 16 hypercholesterolemic adults.3
