What are Plant Sterols?
Plant Sterols are steroid compounds similar to cholesterol which occur in plants and vary only in carbon side chains. More than 200 sterols and related compounds have been identified.
The ability of plant sterols to reduce cholesterol levels in the body was first demonstrated in humans in 1953. They were then manufactured and marketed as a pharmaceutical aid, identified as Cytellin (a treatment for elevated cholesterol) from 1954-1982.
What foods contain plant sterols and stanols?
Modern diets tend to be low in plant sterols, and so increasingly foods such as margarine are being fortified with sterols. These fortified foods can make a contribution to the daily intake of sterols but achieving an optimum intake by this means may not suit everyone.
The richest naturally occurring sources of plant sterols are found in vegetable oils and Nuts.
How do Plant Sterols work to lower cholesterol?
In structure, plant sterols are similar to cholesterol and they have been shown to benefit health by partially blocking cholesterol from being re-absorbed from the gut. Cholesterol is naturally secreted in bile to aid Digestion and then re-absorbed further down the gut. By blocking this re-absorption of cholesterol, plant sterols can have a positive effect on blood cholesterol levels, even if a low cholesterol diet is being consumed.
