  • 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].

Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only 25 Day Supply I've been taking this for quite some time, and it works well. The problem is that you need 4 tabs each day, so this is only a 25 day supply. It used to be offered with higher quantities available. Why was that stopped? I've complained to customer support about it, to no avail. I buy many types of supplements on Puritans, and this is the only one where a bottle has less than a month's supply.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small dose I bought this size because the bigger dose size was out of stock. I prefer the bigger dose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from product is fine I just wish they had the other product which has more phytosterol per capsule. I hate taking four capsules when I could be taking two to get what my md wants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Me Have been using Phytosterol Complex for several months with excellent results. It has helped with overall cholesterol for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price on dietary phytosterols I previously used 2 other brands of dietary phytosterols (Plants stanols and sterols) but this product with similar ingredients is about half the price. The only negative is that it is a softgel instead of a hard tablet and can leak especially in heat and humidity as you do need to carry these with you to take before meals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phytosterol Works! I have been taking Phytosterol for over a year now and have seen my cholesterol come down. I am pleased to find something besides a statin that works.
