Solgar Phytosterol Complex 100 softgels
Studies have shown that plant sterols may help to reduce cholesterol. Phytosterols appear to reduce cholesterol by inhibiting the absorbion of dietary cholesterol within the intestines. As there are a limited number of receptors for cholesterol attachment and absorbtion, phytosterols are able to physically block the cholesterol and prevent the body from absorbing it. Research suggests a recommended intake of approximately 2g of phytosterols daily to support optimum cholesterol levels.
