Description

Beta-Sitosterol (Beta-S), when taken regularly before meals containing cholesterol-rich foods, can result in cholesterol absorption and improved processing of cholesterol by the liver.

WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found throughout the body that is naturally produced by the liver and helps to carry fat to parts of the body that need it for energy and repairs. Foods derived from plants, such as vegetables, do not have any dietary cholesterol. The liver produces all the cholesterol required by the body, and excess dietary cholesterol or saturated fats which are turned into cholesterol by the liver can cause an increase in serum cholesterol.

WHAT WILL LOWERING YOUR HIGH SERUM CHOLESTEROL LEVEL DO?

Studies have shown that in adults with high serum cholesterol levels, for each one percent reduction in total cholesterol levels, there is a two percent reduction in the number of heart attacks. In other words, if you reduce your cholesterol level 15 percent, your risk of coronary heart disease could drop by 30 percent.

IS THERE GOOD AND BAD BLOOD CHOLESTEROL?

Cholesterol travels in the serum in packages called lipoproteins which are formed in the liver and carry cholesterol through the body. Blood cholesterol packaged in low density lipoproteins (LDLs) is transported from the liver to other parts of the body where it can be used. LDLs carry most of the cholesterol in the blood and if not removed from the blood, cholesterol and fat can build up in the arteries contributing to atherosclerosis. This is why LDL cholesterol is often called bad cholesterol. Cholesterol is also packeged in high density lipoproteins (HDLs). HDLs carry cholesterol back to the liver for processing or removal from the body. HDLs, therefore, help remove cholesterol from the blood, preventing the accumulation of cholesterol in the walls of the arteries. Thus they are often referred to as good cholesterol. Exercise helps to increase HDLs and is highly recommended.

HOW DOES BETA-S WORK?

The two food substance of 300mg beta-sitosterol and 30mg citrus pectin are known cholesterol lowering agents that, when combined together, alter dietary fat and cholesterol absorption. Beta-s is broken down in the upper intestine within 30 minutes after ingestion. The proposed mechanisms of action are:
  • intestinal binding excretion of free cholesterol
  • blocking of absorption sites in the intestinal walls
  • an enzymatic shift decreasing liver cholesterol production
  • increased liver enzyme functions on the breakdown of fats
