Sterol and stanol are substances in plants which naturally prevent the absorption of cholesterol into our bodies. Some manufactured foods are now being fortified with sterols and stanols (margarines, orange juice and yogurt drinks). You can find the natural substance in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes.
It is good news that foods that are good for us and actually help a potentially harmful condition are readily available to us.
Eat healthy, stay healthy and incorporate these cholesterol busters into your diet routine.
