- Phytosterols, plant-derived compounds that are similar in structure and function to cholesterol. Clinically proven to reduce cholesterol and accepted for use by EFSA and the FDA
- Phytosterols like Dil-10 reduce intestinal cholesterol absorption, thus lowering LDL cholesterol concentration.
- FDA Claim: “Foods containing at least 0.4g per serving of plant sterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 0.8g as part of a diet low in
saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease”.
- At intakes of 2 to 2.5 grams sterols/stanols per day, other studies have shown a 10 to 14 percent reduction in LDL cholesterol without side effects*.
