-  What are Phytosterols?
Phytosterols are natural components found in many oils, vegetables and grains. The three main phytosterols in Beta Sitosterol are beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol. They are derived entirely from plant sources.


-  How can they help me?
Extensive clinical scientific research has demonstrated that plant phytosterol supplements help support healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range.


-  How does it work?
Plant sterols, the plant equivalent of cholesterol, help to neutralize incoming dietary cholesterol by preventing its absorption. Even better, phytosterols also prevent you from reabsorbing and reusing bile acids that your liver makes to help absorb fats. Your liver then uses up cholesterol to replenish your bile acid supply. Because of this, taking phytosterols every time you eat any kind of fatty food can help balance healthy cholesterol levels.


-  What is cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a solid waxy substance and the basic raw material from which the body makes steroid hormones including the sex hormones. Cholesterol is present in every cell of the body, helping to maintain cell integrity and keep the cell membranes fluid. Cholesterol plays a role in facilitating cell signaling. Cholesterol is the primary component of bile salts that the liver creates to help us assimilate fats, fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Much of the brain is cholesterol. The brain uses cholesterol to synthesize neurotransmitters, substances the nervous system uses to transport signals between cells.


-  What are the primary benefits of beta-sitosterol?
Beta-sitosterol can help support levels of cholesterol already within the normal range, support blood flow health and help keep arterial walls and vessels healthy.
