How many Benecol bars do I have to eat every day if I want to lower my cholesterol?  

A daily intake of 1.5- 3.0g of plant stanols lowers cholesterol in two to three weeks. Each Benecol bar provides 1.6g of plant stanols, so one bar a day lowers cholesterol when consumed as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, which includes your ‘5-a-day’. More than 3g of plant stanols per day is not recommended.
