Detailed Description

Phytosterols and sterolins are plant fats and alcohols. They were originally suspected of being good immune modulators, but more recently, their ability to modulate and lower cholesterol has moved to the forefront.

You’ll find sterols and sterolins in more and more fortified functional foods. Recently, the FDA approved the following claim for phytosterols: “Foods containing at least 0.4 g per serving of plant sterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 0.8 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

Phytosterols have been shown to inhibit the uptake of both dietary and endogenously produced (biliary) cholesterol from the intestine. There are several proposed mechanisms by which phytosterols decrease serum cholesterol levels; one of them suggests that cholesterol in the intestine, already marginally soluble, is precipitated into a nonabsorbable state in the presence of added phytosterols. The main theory is based upon the fact that cholesterol must enter bile salt– and phospholipid-containing mixed micelles in order to pass through intestinal cells and be absorbed into the blood stream.

New Roots Herbal’s Sterols & Sterolins Cholesterol provides sufficient potency for therapeutic effect. As well, our product includes a full range of sterols in their naturally present ratios.

New Look

annatto seed extract

Our dark-coloured softgels have a fresh look; they will now have a deep red colour. We have replaced a carob-based nonmedicinal in the composition of our softgel with annatto seed extract. Annatto extract is sourced from the seeds of this tropical fruit. Annatto (Bixa orellana L.) is a rich source of tocotrienols. It has a long history of use as an antimicrobial and is a potent antioxidant. It also adds UV protection and stability to the contents of our softgels.
