Lestrin is a dietary supplement containing two important, naturally occurring plant substances, Beta-sitosterol (25mg) and Beta-sitostanol (79mg). These plant sterols/stanols are present in Lestrin in the same ratios as are found in nature. They may help maintain normal cholesterol levels as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Lestrin provides the plant sterols/stanols in a convenient tablet form that can be taken whenever you want with meals
Sterols and sterolins naturally exist in plants but are destroyed when food is processed, they work by blocking the absorption of dietary cholesterol into the blood stream. The daily level of plant sterol esters found to be effective is between 1.3 and 3.0g per day. Two tablets of this product taken twice per day provides 1600mg of plant sterol esters, as such, at this dosage the product is likely to deliver both short and long term benefits in helping to lower cholestrol and improve heart health.
