Phytosterols – An Ingredient that Can Help Lower Your Cholesterol Levels Naturally
Getting and keeping your cholesterol levels in a healthy range can be a challenge. The Cholesterol Support Formula is a powerful, researched nutrient combination designed to help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
The RHP® Cholesterol Support Formula contains an ingredient (phytosterols) that can help lower cholesterol, when included as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
Phytosterols (a nutrient that looks like plant cholesterols under a microscope) are similar to cholesterol, but without cholesterol’s harmful effects. Phytosterols fill up the cholesterol receptors in the intestines and as a result, allows the high levels of cholesterol that you don’t want, to be flushed out of the body, making it vital as a nutritional supplement.
Helps support normal LDL, HDL, and triglyceride levels
Provides antioxidant support to help reduce cholesterol oxidation
Promotes a normal inflammatory response
More About Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that floats around in your bloodstream. It’s not “bad”; in fact, your body needs it to build cells but too much can be a problem. Cholesterol comes from two main sources, your body (specifically your liver) which makes all the cholesterol you need and the rest you get from foods from animals. For example, meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products contain cholesterol (called dietary cholesterol).
There are actually two types of cholesterol: “bad” and “good.” LDL cholesterol is the bad kind. HDL is the good kind. Too much of the bad kind — or not enough of the good kind — increases the chances that LDL cholesterol build up on the inside of artery walls, contributing to artery blockages. Artery blockages as we know can then lead to heart attacks. Higher LDL cholesterol levels could mean a higher risk of heart disease.
If you have high cholesterol levels, your doctor will most likely ask you to change your diet by eliminating fats from meat, fats from full fat dairy produce, eggs, some oils, store bought cookies, crackers and cakes. He’ll also want you start exercising regularly in order to get your cholesterol into a healthy normal range.
More About Phytosterols and
What They Have to Do with Cholesterol Support
Plant sterols, also known as phytosterols (the plant’s cholesterol), are naturally-occurring substances that are found in fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole-grain products and most vegetable oils. Think of plant sterols as the plant version of animal cholesterol, minus the downside. In fact, adding plant sterols to your diet is one of the best tips for treating high cholesterol naturally.
When you take phytosterols, the phytosterols fill up the cholesterol receptors in the intestines and as a result, allows cholesterol (the kind you don’t want) to be flushed out of the body, so finding a daily supplement with this ingredient is a good idea.
Experts recommend that to get the maximum cholesterol-lowering benefits, you should be getting between 1,500 to 3,000 milligrams of plant sterols per day through your diet and/or daily supplementation.
To begin to see any benefits, such as lowering your LDL cholesterol, you need to get a minimum of 800 milligrams of phytosterols per day; which our Cholesterol Support Formula provides. Thus, you can see that while it may be difficult to get this amount of phytosterols naturally from heart healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, it is very achievable if you include the RHP® Cholesterol Support Formula.
