Foresterol™ contains Reducol®, a phytosterol mixture from the non-GMO tall oil of the coniferous pine tree. Reducol has such significant LDL cholesterol lowering properties that the FDA allows cholesterol lowering claims with the assertion that it may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
As it has been shown that Reducol works to inhibit absorption of both dietary and biliary cholesterol from the small intestine, it is important to know that much of the cholesterol found in serum is derived from intestinal reuptake of cholesterol that has been deposited into the intestine from the liver and gall bladder. Therefore even vegetarians with no dietary cholesterol benefit from Foresterol™.
Therapeutically, Foresterol™ can be used in conjunction with other cholesterol lowering agents for enhanced activity.
