Can I eat Benecol foods if I am taking cholesterol lowering medication?


If you’re taking cholesterol lowering medication like statins, it’s important to check with your doctor first before eating Benecol foods with added plant stanols.

Having said that, research shows that enjoying foods with added plant stanols is an effective way to boost the effects of an overall healthy diet to help to lower cholesterol and can be used together with statins. This is because they both work in different ways, and so you’re likely to get even better cholesterol lowering results.
