Features and benefits
- Provides a relevant dose of plant sterols
- Complements diet and lifestyle measures to support healthy cholesterol levels
- Convenient dosage
Cholesterol support is an important part of many people’s diet and lifestyle regimes. Blackmores Cholesterol HealthTM contains plant sterols which help to support healthy cholesterol levels. It also contains betacarotene, as betacarotene absorption may be reduced when taking plant sterols.
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.
Blackmores Cholesterol HealthTM provides a daily dose of 2 grams of plant sterols.
Blackmores Cholesterol HealthTM is for people concerned about their cholesterol levels and is a proactive addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
