Among nutrients used for cholesterol support, fiber, Co Q-10, niacin, and red yeast rice get most of the attention. But plant sterols are not only effective, they’re extremely affordable, safe…and isn’t that what everyone starts out looking for in the first place? A recent study agrees, calling sterols “an important but underused dietary component in the treatment of elevated blood cholesterol”.
The vast majority of nutritional supplements are already cholesterol-free or have nutritionally insignificant amounts of cholesterol. None are high-cholesterol when used in typical amounts. Protein shakes and meal replacement shakes are a great idea for those on low cholesterol diets because they take the place of high-protein higher-cholesterol foods like meats, dairy, seafood and eggs.
