Plant-sterols-800mg - 180 Tablets
Understanding Cholesterol It is estimated that two out of three adults in the UK have raised cholesterol and heart disease remains one of the country&
39;s biggest health concerns. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) carry cholesterol from the liver to cells around the body. However, if our dietary supply of LDL cholesterol outweighs the body&
39;s demand, excess cholesterol is deposited along artery walls, which is why LDL cholesterol is often referred to as bad cholesterol. An effective means of lowering the risk of heart disease is to reduce the level of harmful LDL cholesterol in the blood. The benefits of Plant Sterols The European Commission has approved the use of plant sterols supplements as a proven and safe means of reducing total cholesterol. Plant sterols have a similar structure to our own cholesterol, which means that they block the body&
39;s absorption of cholesterol into the blood. Studies show that daily supplementation with 2400mg of plant sterols (3 tablets) reduces cholesterol levels by 12.5% in 2 to 3 weeks. Plus, plant sterols have been shown to have no detrimental effect on HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Why choose Simply Supplements? Lowering cholesterol levels has been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, without the side effects or price tags of statin drugs. Our Plant Sterols tablets 800mg contain powerful levels of beta-sitosterol and have been carefully developed based on the strengths used in successful clinical trials. This premium-quality supplement is manufactured in the UK by our supplier to strict EU standards that ensure the highest levels of quality are always maintained.
