Description

With 375 mg of plant sterols per tablespoon, Heart Smart Sunflower Oil is a great way to help lower your LDL cholesterol, naturally.

Heart Smart Sunflower Oil blends the unique beneficial fatty acids of sunflower oil with the cholesterol-lowering benefits of 375 mg of plant sterols per tablespoon.

Research has proven that 2 g of plant sterols per day can reduce harmful (LDL) cholesterol up to 20%. Their action is simple: they block intestinal absorption of harmful LDL cholesterol. Nonvegetarians consume approximately 300 mg of plant sterols per day, while vegetarians hover around 600 mg daily. This shortfall is confirmed by Dr. Peter Jones, an international pioneer in lipid nutrition and functional foods, who states: “Even though plant sterols can be and are eaten as part of a healthy diet, it’s challenging for Canadians to consume enough plant sterols to lower their cholesterol.”

Heart Smart Sunflower Oil’s crisp flavour and high smoke point suits high-temperature stir-fries, but also vinaigrettes and smoothies, or it can simply be taken by the spoonful.
