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.
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.
