  • If your having trouble getting your cholesterol levels down, then your in the right spot. Diet can play an important role in lowering your cholesterol. Even without changing your diet again…here is one natural substance that can help lower your cholesterol and protect your heart. 

    What happens when the bad cholesterol levels don’t go down, even after taking medication? Maybe it’s time to consider taking phytosterols – natural cholesterol from plants. This article will reveal how these help to lower bad cholesterol, what is the daily recommended dosage and what are their relationship to a healthy lifestyle.

    Many people ask if there is a perfect method to lower cholesterol in the blood. Apparently the correct answer will be a combination of several things together: nutrition, healthy lifestyle, medications (if needed) and nutritional supplements that help lower cholesterol levels, for example those that contain phytosterols which are natural ingredients derived from plants.

    Many people who have high cholesterol levels take statins which are drugs often prescribed by doctors to help lower cholesterol levels in the blood. While they are effective, they can cause side effects, such as muscle aches, abdominal pain, nausea and/or vomiting, dizziness, difficulty to sleep, diarrhea or constipation and more.


    What are phytosterols?

    Phytosterols are similar in their chemical structure to cholesterol, but they are not produced by the human body cells, and their only source is the food we consume. You can find them in very small quantities in fruits and vegetables, nuts and almonds, and in larger quantities in several types of grains (wheat, rye) and oils (such as sesame oil).

    Who is suitable to take them?

    Phytosterols can suit people with borderline levels of LDL, who still don’t receive medications to treat their cholesterol levels, and are interested to treat their LDL naturally. They are also suitable for people receiving medications for lowering cholesterol, but fail to reach desirable cholesterol levels despite taking medications. Phytosterols are considered safe to use, even for diabetics. In any case, you should consult your doctor before taking them.
