What is Beta Sitosterol?

Beta sitosterol, also known as plant sterol or phytosterol, is one of several steroid-like alcohols and phytochemicals that occur naturally in many plants. The cholesterol-like compound is found in many foods such as rice bran, wheat germ, corn oil, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.

Plant sterols support a healthy cardiovascular system and aid the immune system.

Why Purchase Beta Sitosterol?

Beta sitosterol supports healthy cholesterol levels by regulating cholesterol absorption by the intestines.

Beta sitosterol is added to some margarines and foods that are designed for use in a cholesterol-lowering and/or heart disease prevention diet. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permits manufacturers to state that foods containing plant sterol esters such as beta sitosterol reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) as part of a diet low in saturated fat.

Purity and Concentration of Beta Sitosterol

Beta sitosterol 40% is a vegetarian and vegan product assayed by the manufacturer to be greater than 40% beta sitosterol and 90% phytosterol. It is extracted from soy beans.

Potential Side Effects of Beta Sitosterol

Beta sitosterol is safe for general use. Although most people don't experience adverse side effects, ingesting more than the recommended dose may cause stomach upset, nausea, diarrhea, gas or constipation. Using beta sitosterol is not advisable for people with sitosterolemia (a rare inherited fat storage disease), as this condition already increases beta-sitosterol levels.

Bioavailability, Mixing and Solubility of Product

This product, along with all phytosterols, is insoluble in water but may be dissolved in alcohol, acetone and most vegetable oils.
