Zerochol® is a 100% natural food supplement containing plant sterols, clinically proven to lower cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. The beneficial effect has been shown with a daily intake of 1.5-3.0g plant sterols.
How do Plant Sterols Work
Plant sterols are naturally occurring substances found in plants. When taken regularly at high doses, plant sterols can help stop normal cholesterol being absorbed into the blood and small intestine and therefore help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Keeping your cholesterol levels at a normal level will reduce the risk of developing coronary heart disease. New research confirms that 1.6 g (2 tablets) Zerochol® plant sterols can lower cholesterol by 17% in 3 months, without any side effects.
There are usually no symptoms for high cholesterol; so, it’s very important to get your cholesterol checked annually. The Irish Heart Foundation recommends that healthy adults should have a total cholesterol level below 5 mmol/L.
