Phytosterols are natural components of many vegetables and grains. Preliminary scientific evidence suggests that plant phytosterols may help maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range when consumed as part of a low cholesterol dietary program. The three main phytosterols in this product are beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol. They are derived entirely from plant sources.

Beta Sitosterol, the most common phytosterol found in nature,
may play a protective role in the development of cancer and
prostate cancer. Consuming either Beta Sitosterol Supplement
or a diet high in Beta Sitosterol, suggests a protective role
from colon, prostate, and breast cancer. Asians and vegetarians
consume higher amounts of PS than Western societies. The latter
societies have a higher incidence of these cancers than Asians
and vegetarians. Peanuts are a good source of Beta Sitosterol
and other phytosterols found in nature.

It also appears to modulate the biochemical synthesis of
cytokines, which are responsible for the inflammatory response
of the immune system to foreign invaders and tissue damage. It
also appears to boost the activity of NK-cells, and also of the
proliferation of lymphocytes in general. Another effect of beta
sitosterol is in normalizing the insulin and blood sugar levels
in Type 2 diabetes. It does this by inhibiting the enzyme
glucose-6-phosphatase that is responsible for the conversion of
carbohydrates to D-glucose which raises blood sugar levels. The
upshot is that the onset of age related Type 2 diabetes is
delayed. In general, beta sitosterol displays many
properties beneficial to your health. It displays anti-viral
and anti-fungal properties, is believed to be responsible for
the suppression of cancers of the colon and prostate, and
lymphocytic leukemia. It appears to act as an
anti-inflammatory, and has a beneficial effect on ulcers and
cramps. There is even evidence that it can help to cure
allergies, although more studies are required to confirm this.
Those suffering from specific allergies have reported a
lessening of the effects when taking beta sitosterol
supplements, although it is possible that other dietary factors
were also involved. Beta sitosterol is contained in some
concentration or another in most plants, but those richest in
the phytosterol are wheat germ, peanuts, soybeans, corn oil,
pumpkin seeds and rice bran. None of these form a particularly
large part of the western diet, and a supplement is likely the
best way to ensure a sufficiently adequate frequent intake as to
have a significant effect on your LDL cholesterol level.
