As proven by over 45 clinical studies with Flora pro-activ, plant sterols significantly lower cholesterol levels. The concentrated amounts of plant sterols in Flora pro-activ low fat spread work by partially blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the gut. This reduces the amount of cholesterol that enters the bloodstream, resulting in lower levels of LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol.
To get the full benefits of plant sterols, you need to have 2g* every day, as part of a balanced and cholesterol lowering diet. By consuming Flora pro-activ low fat spread daily, it is possible to obtain a lower and healthy cholesterol level. 25g of Flora pro-activ low fat spread can provide you with the optimum amount of plant sterols daily. Try it on sandwiches or stirred into hot vegetables.
* 1.5-2.4 g plant sterols lower cholesterol by 7-10% in just 2-3 weeks
What makes Flora pro-activ more effective than other foods?
Although plant sterols occur naturally in foods like vegetable oils, seeds, grain products, fruit, and vegetables, the amounts are too small to make a notable difference to your cholesterol levels. In fact, you would need to eat 150 apples, 210 carrots, or 425 tomatoes to get the full cholesterol lowering benefit of plant sterols.
