Phytosterol Powder

Phytosterols are non water soluble plant sterols noted for their ability to help lower cholesterol. Sometimes added to processed foods (eg. Flora ProActiv margarine), plant sterols compete for absorption with cholesterol in the digestive tract. While they help prevent the absorption of regular dietary cholesterol, they themselves are not easily absorbed, which leads to total lower cholesterol levels. Phytosterols are also being studied for their role in managing prostate health in men, thought to be by inhibiting the production of 5-alpha reductase in the prostate gland.
