Part Description

LP173720-6   Beta sitosterol
β-Sitosterol is one of several phytosterols (plant sterols) with chemical structures similar to that of cholesterol. Alone and in combination with similar phytosterols, β-sitosterol reduces blood levels of cholesterol, and is sometimes used in treating hypercholesterolemia. β-sitosterol inhibits cholesterol absorption in the intestine, reducing the levels of LDL and total serum cholesterol. β-Sitosterol is not recommended for individuals with sitosterolemia, a rare inherited fat storage disease. Because people with this condition have too much β-sitosterol and related fats in their system, taking β-sitosterol will only worsen this condition. High levels of β-sitosterol concentrations in blood have been correlated with increased severity of heart disease in men having previously suffered from heart attacks.
