I don’t want to take cholesterol lowering medication – can I eat Benecol products instead?

You can benefit from eating Benecol foods with added plant stanols, but it’s important to discuss your health condition with your GP and get support from your doctor before you start to treat yourself.

What’s more, Benecol products are recommended as part of a cholesterol lowering eating plan and overall healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle. This includes reducing saturated fat, and eating more fruit and vegetables (at least ‘5-a-day’), nuts, fibre rich wholegrains (oats and barley) for example.
