Benecol® products include a range of tasty foods such as yogurt drinks, yogurts and spreads, which contain a unique cholesterol lowering ingredient – plant stanol ester. Plant stanols interfere with cholesterol absorption which results in reduced serum LDL cholesterol levels. Simply having 2g of plant stanols daily with meals, can lower cholesterol by 7-10% in just 2-3 weeks.* This reduction is in addition to what can be achieved with dietary changes and/or cholesterol lowering medication.
The cholesterol lowering efficacy of plant stanols in Benecol foods has been demonstrated in over 80 clinical studies and is recommended as part of a healthy lifestyle in evidence-based guidelines.
