Foresterol™ contains a phytosterol mixture of plant sterols/stanols that has been shown to be effective in supporting healthy cholesterol levels in the body. This mixture is from the non-GMO tall oil of the coniferous pine tree and mainly consists of four major phytosterols: beta-sitosterol, campesterol (in the free sterol form, not as sterol esters), campestanol, and sitostanol.
Made with non-GMO ingredients.
The plant sterols/stanols in Foresterol™ work to inhibit absorption of both dietary and biliary cholesterol from the small intestine. Much of the cholesterol found in serum is derived from intestinal reuptake of cholesterol that has been deposited into the intestine from the liver and gall bladder. Therefore, even vegetarians with no dietary cholesterol can benefit from Foresterol™.
Therapeutically, Foresterol™ can be used in conjunction with other cholesterol-lowering agents for enhanced activity.
