ModuChol 60 caps | Moducare
Plant sterol esters are healthy plant fats called phytosterols, naturally occurring in all fruits and vegetables. Published research over the past fifty years has shown that plant sterol esters play an important role in lowering the harmful form of cholesterol called low-density lipoprotein or LDL cholesterol. Taken daily, plant sterol esters can lower LDL cholesterol 8- 15% in as little as four weeks. Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating recommends eating 5-10 servings of fruit and vegetables per day. With today's busy lifestyle, most Canadians are unable to eat the recommended daily amount and therefore, they don't get enough plant sterol esters. ModuCholô provides a convenient way to obtain plant sterol esters and lower*
What is ModuCholô and how does it lower cholesterol?*
ModuCholô consists of plant sterol esters, clinically proven to help reduce LDL cholesterol levels, a major indicator for heart disease. ModuCholô contains 0.65 grams of plant sterol esters in each capsule. These plant sterol esters compete with dietary cholesterol, so that when ModuCholô is consumed with food, less cholesterol is absorbed by the small intestine, thus lowering the harmful LDL. This cholesterol reduction in the blood stream means reduced risk of heart disease.*
Is there any clinical research to support the benefits of ModuCholô ?*
Yes, the effects of plant sterol esters on cholesterol lowering have been extensively researched over the past fifty years and have consistently demonstrated an ability to lower cholesterol levels. Research began in the 1950s and there have been numerous clinical studies showing that increased intake of plant sterol esters inhibits the intestinal absorption of dietary cholesterol and decreases the total blood and LDL cholesterol. (Brit J Nutr 2002;88:479-488 and Amer J Clin Nutr 1999;69:1144-50.)*
Can I take ModuCholô with medications and other supplements?*
There are no known interactions between the ingredients in ModuCholô and any prescribed medication or dietary supplements.*
Are there any side effects from using ModuCholô?*
ModuCholô is safe and effective for daily use. No adverse events have been reported from the consumption of plant sterols.*
Are there any cautions associated with taking ModuCholô?*
Yes. If you are pregnant, nursing, or receiving medical treatment, use only under the supervision of a health care professional. Long-term high dose supplementation with plant sterols may inhibit absorption of the pre-vitamin beta-carotene. This is easily counteracted by increased intake of carotene-rich vitamins or foods. Otherwise, plant sterols are typically well tolerated.*
How long before I see results from taking ModuCholô?*
As with any natural supplement, it can take a period of time before results are noticeable. Though some individuals see results in as little as four weeks, supplement with plant sterols for an average of 8 weeks before testing for results. Please be sure to consult your physician about the role of plant sterols in your healthy heart plan.*
