More Information

Lamberts Plant Sterols 800mg 60 Tablets provide a full 800mg of pure plant sterols with up to 80% beta-sitosterols. Two tablets a day can contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Lamberts quote the level of pure plant sterols in our tablets, not the compound weight declared by some companies, which may be only 50% sterols.

Plant sterols are naturally present in vegetable oils and grains, and have been shown to be vitally important for maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. 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.

  • 60 tablets.
  • Provides a full 800mg if pure plant sterols.
  • Includes up to 80% beta-sitosterols.
  • Contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
  • Suitable for vegetarians.

Cholesterol is secreted naturally 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. 

Summary

More Information

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 richest naturally occurring sources of plant sterols are found in vegetable oils and nuts. 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 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.
