Product Details

A healthy cholesterol level is important for good heart health. CholestOff® Plus is made with Reducol, a proprietary blend of plant sterols and stanols (also called phytosterols) that can help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol by reducing the absorption of dietary cholesterol into the bloodstream.*

What Is CholestOff® Plus
CholestOff® Plus is formulated with esterified sterols and stanols instead of free form sterols and stanols that are formulated in CholestOff® Original. The esterified sterols and stanols have been clinically proven to have cholesterol-lowering benefits.* Additionally, Nature Made has conducted clinical trials examining the effects of CholestOff® Plus on cholesterol. Our studies show that consuming CholestOff® Plus in addition to following the National Institutes of Health's National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) diet, reduced LDL cholesterol levels.*

How does it work?
The cholesterol-lowering effect of plant stanol/sterol esters occurs through “competition” between dietary cholesterol and plant stanols for incorporation into mixed micelles in the intestine. This leads to a decrease in the amount of dietary cholesterol absorbed into the bloodstream from the intestine. Therefore, less dietary cholesterol then enters our circulation and less cholesterol is absorbed by our body.*

Nature Made CholestOff Plus

Why are plant sterols and stanols important?
Plant sterols and stanols are part of the NCEP TLC diet. The TLC diet recommends 2000 milligrams of plant sterols and stanols daily as part of a therapeutic diet to help lower cholesterol. This may be difficult to get just from the foods we eat since most people only consume about 200 milligrams of plant sterol and stanols through their diet. Taken twice daily with a meal, CholestOff® Plus provides the additional 1800 milligrams of plant sterols and stanols to help meet what the NCEP recommends for cholesterol reduction in an easy to swallow liquid softgel.*
