Beta sitosterol is a phytosterol, a compound that resembles the structure of cholesterol only that it comes from plants. Natural beta sitosterol sources are corn oil, soybeans, and wheat germ. The discovery of beta sitosterol along with other plant sterols happened in 1922. It demonstrated the ability to lower serum cholesterol by reducing cholesterol absorption in the intestines. Beta sitosterol research shows that it can lower the LDL (bad cholesterol) and total cholesterol concentration. On the other hand, it doesn’t show any action of increasing the levels of HDL (good cholesterol). For promoting prostate health, beta sitosterol is tought to work by inhibiting the activity of 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that works by converting the male hormone testosterone to DHT. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is another hormone considered as a major contributing factor to developing prostate enlargement. Older men are indeed very prone to develop prostate enlargement since they have higher DHT levels than younger men. Abnormal prostate enlargement is a common problem of men 50 years old and above. Additionally, beta sitosterol controls the action of the enzyme aromatase, which is responsible for the production of estradiol. Estradiol imbalance occurs with age and is considered as another risk for prostate health. Due to its many benefits, Beta sitosterol gained much interest for use as dietary supplements in form of functional foods like margarines and sandwich spreads. Source Naturals Beta Sitosterol takes the health supporting benefits of this phytosterol into a higher level. These Beta sitosterol tablets have higher concentration of beta sitosterol than margarines and spreads for more and faster health benefits.
