Cholesterol maintenance is an important part of many people's diet and lifestyle regimes. Blackmores Cholesterol Health contains plant sterols which help to reduce cholesterol absorption. It also contains betacarotene, as betacarotene absorption may be reduced when taking plant sterols.
Plant sterols are fat-like compounds with a chemical structure that is very similar to cholesterol. However compared to cholesterol, plant sterols are only minimally absorbed. They are naturally present in everyday foods especially in vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains and cooking oils.
During digestion, the plant sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption. What this means is that less cholesterol is absorbed and more cholesterol is excreted.
A daily dose of 2-3 grams of plant sterols from plant sterol-enriched food is recommended by the National Heart Foundation of Australia to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Blackmores Cholesterol Health provides a daily dose of 2 grams of plant sterols. It helps in maintaining the LDL:HDL cholesterol ratio within the normal range.
Blackmores Cholesterol Health is for people concerned about their cholesterol levels and is a useful proactive aid in conjunction with diet and lifestyle changes.
