Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol For Menopausal Women

 

Phytosterols help reduce cholesterol levels for women during menopause.

Menopause is not an easy passage for many women. With symptoms ranging from mood swings, hot flushes, sore breasts, higher cholesterol levels and aching joints, the medical world has yet to come up with a fully acceptable response to helping women with this natural event.

Fortunately, there are some natural ingredients that have proven helpful to many women, without side effects common to drug ‘remedies’. Side effects to estrogen may include breast tenderness, nausea, headaches, leg cramps, irregular bleeding, weight gain and bloating.

Phytosterols is one such ingredient. Phytosterols help combat the increasing cholesterol levels in women during menopause.

 

Phytosterols Help Reduce Cholesterol Levels During Menopause

Phytosterol-enriched products may reduce apolipoprotein levels by up to four per cent, increasing heart health.

Numerous clinical trials also report that daily consumption of 1.5 to 3 grams of phytosterols/-stanols can reduce total cholesterol levels by eight to 17 per cent, representing a significant reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The new study, supplemented the diets of 46 people, with an average age of 50.6, with 20 g low-fat margarine [35 per cent fat] and 250 ml low-fat milk [0.7 per cent fat]. This gave a total plant sterol dose of 2.3 g per day.

The particpants all had LDL cholesterol levels in the 3.0 to 5.5 mmol/l range, considered as mildly hypercholesterolemic.

By combining two different plant sterol-enriched foods as part of a low-fat diet researchers found it lead to on average 7.7% reduction in LDL cholesterol levels.

Phytosterols can also be found in Soy Isoflavones
