What are plant stanols?


Plant stanols are part of the backbone of plant cells, and so are naturally found in a range of plant foods such as cereals (wheat and rye), vegetable oils, nuts and seeds, but only in tiny amounts (about 20 to 30 mg per day).

That’s far less than the cholesterol lowering effects shown with a daily intake of 1.5-3.0g of plant stanols.
