Foresterol | Designs for Health
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.
Foresterol™ mainly consists of 4 major phytosterols: beta-sitosterol, campesterol (in the free sterol form, not as sterol esters) campestanol, and sitostanol.
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
Serving Size 3 Tablets
Servings Per Container 30
Plant sterols/stanols 1800 mg

HOW DOES FORESTEROL ™ LOWER CHOLESTEROL?
When ingested, phytosterols inhibit absorption of cholesterol, thereby lowering plasma total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. It has been shown to inhibit absorption of both dietary and biliary cholesterol from the small intestine, therefore even vegetarians with no dietary cholesterol benefit from Foresterol™.
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.
HOW TO TAKE FORESTEROL ™
Take 3 capsules daily (yielding 1800 mg plant sterols), one with each meal or 3 altogether with the largest meal.
Studies show that doses higher than 2 g have little added effect. Foresterol may ideally be combined with Annatto Tocotrienols or UltraTrienols Plus by Designs for Health as these work via different mechanisms. The latter products reduce cholesterol synthesis in the liver. This would attack the problem from two different angles simultaneously which would be ideal.
