HEART UK AND BENECOL
Benecol products are the only range of foods to contain plant stanol ester, the unique cholesterol-lowering ingredient*. A daily intake of 1.5 to 2.4g of plant stanols lowers cholesterol by 7-10% in just two to three weeks, when eaten as part of a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, which includes your ‘5-a-day’. There are lots of Benecol products to choose from, including yogurts, yogurt drinks and spreads, to help you achieve the recommended intake of plant stanol esters to lower cholesterol.
Benecol is passionate about ensuring people put heart health at the top of the agenda and has partnered with HEART UK to work together in raising awareness of the importance of knowing and understanding your cholesterol levels, and to encourage people to take appropriate action.
