New sterol product helps support cholesterol control

Tuesday, 19 June 2018  |  Editor

You may be aware of the value of plant sterols. Plant sterols occur naturally in food and are similar in structure to cholesterol, the HDL fat that is abundant in animal sourced fats. But what is not generally known is that the body produces its own cholesterol which is secreted into the digestive system in the form of bile to aid the digestive process.

Plant sterols are useful because they block cholesterol from being re-absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream, and any cholesterol not absorbed is simply excreted. This is why diets high in plant sterols can help to control blood cholesterol levels, and why plant sterols are now added to some specialist margarines. Although plant sterols are naturally present in vegetable oils and grains, modern diets tend to be low in these important nutrients, and so it may be difficult to always achieve optimum levels from diet alone. It is unusual to find a sterol product also containing help for  in controlling your digestive system

Here is a new product from leading professional quality supplement brand, Biocare.
