Do Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol?

Has anyone had any luck lowering their cholesterol by using Phytosterol supplements like Centrum Cardio or Bayer Heart Health Advantage? If so how much did it lower it?

    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.
