The role of Phytosterols (plant sterols)

  • Phytosterols occur naturally in plants such as fruits and vegetables, nuts and cereals.
  • Phytosterols only occur in small amounts in the plants of natural food. One would need 8.2kg of apples (approximately 45 apples) to get 1.5 g of Phytosterols.
  • Phytosterols can be extracted from natural plants and added into food. Two glasses of NESTLÉ®CARNATION® Double Care PhytosterolTM Nutritional Milk Powder per day offers 1.5g of Phytosterol to help easier intake and lower the amount of cholesterol.
  • Phytosterols and cholesterol are very similar in chemical structure. It can reduce the absorption of cholesterol in blood vessels in the intestines, thereby lowering the level of bad cholesterol.
