  • Can Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol
    Phytosterols, also known as plant sterols, are cholesterol-like molecules found in plants, such as whole grains, fruits, legumes, and vegetables. They differ from the animal cholesterol found in meats in that they are minimally absorbed in the body and also inhibit the absorption of cholesterol. There is promising evidence that phytosterols lower LDL "bad" cholesterol.
