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 for the plant sterols it contains.* Foresterol™ mainly consists of four major phytosterols: beta-sitosterol, campesterol (in the free sterol form, not as sterol esters), campestanol, and sitostanol.
*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
It has been shown that Reducol™ works to inhibit absorption of both dietary and biliary cholesterol from the small intestine. 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 can benefit from Foresterol™.
Therapeutically, Foresterol™ can be used in conjunction with other cholesterol-lowering agents for enhanced activity
As a dietary supplement, take three tablets per day, one with each meal, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Anyone with a pine allergy should avoid Foresterol™. Pregnant women should not take Foresterol™. Lactating women should consult with their physician prior to taking Foresterol™.
