FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Provides a relevant dose of plant sterols.
- Complements diet and lifestyle measures to support healthy cholesterol levels.
- Convenient dosage.
Blackmores Cholesterol Health contains plant sterols (phytosetrols) to support healthy cholesterol levels. High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor in the development of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
Plant sterols are fat-like compounds with a chemical structure that is very similar to cholesterol. However compared to cholesterol, plant sterols are only minimally absorbed. They are naturally present in everyday foods especially in vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains and cooking oils.
During digestion, the plant sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption. What this means is that less cholesterol is absorbed and more cholesterol is excreted.
A daily dose of 2-3 grams of plant sterols from plant sterol-enriched food is recommended by the National Heart Foundation of Australia to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Blackmores Cholesterol Health™ provides a daily dose of 2 grams of plant sterols. It helps in maintaining the LDL:HDL cholesterol ratio within the normal range.
We recommend using Blackmores Cholesterol Health with diet and lifestyle changes for people concerned about their cholesterol levels.
Daily supplementation with omega-3 fish oil is also beneficial to improve the LDL-HDL cholesterol ratio.
