What are Plant Sterols?

Plant sterols are botanically derived compounds that share similarities with cholesterol in their molecular structure. The most prevalent plant sterols in an average diet are beta-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol, Significant natural sources of these nutrients include vegetables and nuts, as well as varieties of fruit. Hundreds of years ago, these compounds were more common in the eating habits of most humans, but the increased presence of processed foods over the decades had led to lesser intake of plant sterols. Today, spreads, oils and salad dressings are often fortified with plant sterols to help raise intake.**

Scientific investigations have shown that plant sterols aid in limiting cholesterol absorption in the digestive tract, in part by boosting the liver’s production of bile. This results in lower levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein), also known as "bad cholesterol," in the circulatory system. Further studies have indicated that these natural compounds promote overall cardiovascular wellness, including circulation, largely due to their role in reducing LDL cholesterol.**

The FDA has approved two heart health claims for plant sterols. The first states: “Foods containing at least 0.65 g per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of [name of the food] supplies ___grams of vegetable oil sterol esters.” A second FDA-approved claim states: “Foods containing at least 1.7 g per serving of plant stanol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a total daily intake of at least 3.4 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of [name of the food] supplies ___grams of plant stanol esters.”

Research has additionally found that plant sterols appear to modulate inflammatory responses and assist in regulating the immune system. The compounds have also been investigated for possible beneficial effects on prostate and urinary tract health, suggesting potential for other wellness applications.**

Plant Sterols Supplements

Plant sterol supplement products are often available as capsules, softgels and tablets or in powder form. Supplements are sometimes sold solely as beta-sitosterol or in a plant sterols complex. These botanical nutrients can also be found added to butter, margarine, oils, salad dressings and other food products.**

Plant Sterols Directions for Use

Prior to supplemental use of plant sterols or any routine supplementation, seek advice from your health care professional. Capsules, tablets and softgels are regularly offered in a wide range of doses from 100 to 1,200 mg. However, it should be noted that the FDA only stands by its approved plant sterol cardiovascular health claims when plant sterol dosage is 2+ grams per day.**
