Phytosterols are structurally similar to cholesterol. Although there are many different phytosterols found in plants, the phytosterols most abundant in the diet are b-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol. Scientific evidence demonstrates that diets that include phytosterols may support cardiovascular health. The scientific evidence establishes that including phytosterols in the diet helps to lower blood total and LDL cholesterol levels. Foods or dietary supplements containing at least 0.5 g per serving of phytosterols taken with meals or snacks for a daily total intake of 2 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
