  • May reduce the risk of coronary heart disease†
  • Helps lower total cholesterols and LDL cholesterols†
Product & Label Information

Promotes cardiovascular and circulatory wellness.

Scientific evidence demonstrates that diets that include phytosterols may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease†. Our specialized formula exceeds strict quality standards for levels of phytosterols (beta sitosterol, stigmasterol, and campesterol) - the active ingredients that help maintain cholesterol levels already within a normal range.

†Foods and dietary supplements containing at least 0.5 g per serving of phytosterols (plant sterols, plant stanols, or plant sterols and stanols, expressed as unesterified form equivalent) eaten with meals or snacks for a daily total intake of 2 g as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease through the intermediate link of blood total and LDL cholesterol. A serving of Phytosterol Complex provides 500 mg of phytosterols [plant sterols, plant stanols, or plant sterols and stanols, expressed as unesterified form equivalent]. 

The NCEP recommendation
The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) recommends 2 g per day of dietary phytosterols (Plants stanols and sterols) as part of the Therapuetic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) to help lower LDL cholesterol. [Third Report of the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Expert Panel on detection, evaluation, and treatment of high blood cholesterol in adults (Adult Treatment Panel III)]

Dietary intake of phytosterols among North Americans 
Total phytosterol intake was estimated as 363 mg per day; non-vegetarians consumed an average of 263 mg per day and vegans consumed an average of 428 mg per day total phytosterols [Jaceldo-Siegl, 2017]

Foods with premium source of phytosterols 
Phytosterols are found in unrefined vegetable, nut, and olive oil; nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes are also premium sources of phytosterols [Raju, 2013].
