Plant Sterol Complex for Support of Healthy Cholesterol Levels
Phytosterols have been shown to work in two ways to lower serum cholesterol levels: 1) By reducing the absorption of dietary cholesterol into circulation and 2) By preventing resorption of recirculating cholesterol that is a normal constituent of bile in the intestines. The exact mechanism by which phytosterols inhibit cholesterol absorption is unclear; however, there is much evidence to indicate that the plant sterols combine with cholesterol to form inseparable crystals which are not absorbable. Oral intake of phytosterols does not interfere with health or the absorption or metabolism of foodstuff other than cholesterol. Niacin is added to the formula for its ability to support cardiovascular health.
