Foresterol™ 600 mg
90 tablets Price: $31.00
Foresterol™ by Designs for Health contains Reducol®, a phytosterol mixture – not from soy but from non-GMO tall oil from the coniferous pine tree. Reducol has significant LDL cholesterol lowering properties as evidenced by research and years of clinical use, so much that the FDA allows cholesterol lowering claims for plant sterols. Foresterol™ consists mainly of the 4 major phytosterols: beta-sitosterol, campesterol (in the free sterol form, not as sterol esters) and campestanol, sitostanol
Serving Size 3 Tablets Servings Per Container 30
* Plant sterols/stanols 1800 mg
Other Ingredients: Microcellulose (crystalin) 102, aerosil 200/ cabosil M5, primellose, magnesium stearate.
HOW DOES FORESTEROL ™ LOWER CHOLESTEROL?
When ingested, phytosterols inhibit absorption of cholesterol, thereby lowering plasma total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. It has been shown to inhibit absorption of both dietary and biliary cholesterol from the small intestine, therefore even vegetarians with no dietary cholesterol benefit from Foresterol™.
It is important to know that 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.
HOW TO TAKE FORESTEROL ™
Take 3 capsules daily (yielding 1800 mg plant sterols), one with each meal or 3 altogether with the largest meal. Studies show that doses higher than 2 g have little added effect. Foresterol may ideally be combined with Annatto Tocotrienols or UltraTrienols Plus as these work via different mechanisms. The latter products reduce cholesterol synthesis in the liver. This would attack the problem from two different angles simultaneously, which would be ideal.
Anyone with a pine allergy should avoid Foresterol™. Pregnant women should not take Foresterol™. Lactating women should consult with their physician prior to taking Foresterol™.
