- Supports cardiovascular and prostate health‡
- Promotes healthy lipid metabolism‡

CholestePure™ – A high purity phytosterol complex, supporting healthy cholesterol metabolism without the saturated fat, trans fatty acids or calories found in functional foods. Beta-sitosterol contained in this formula supports prostate health.
What Is It?
CholestePure is a high purity phytosterol complex. Phytosterols are sterol molecules, similar in structure to cholesterol, which are synthesized by plants and are present naturally in grains, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetable oils. CholestePure is a broad spectrum balance of the most prized phytosterols, including beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, and brassicasterol.*
• A convenient phytosterol source, but without the calories and fat from specialty margarines, spreads, or salad dressings that have incorporated phytosterol esters into them as a result of recent health conscious trends.*
• An enhanced concentration of phytosterols compared to traditional Western diets that only provide about 200 mg phytosterols per day (based on beta-sitosterol content), an amount too low to provide nutritional support.*
Uses For CholestePure
Lipid Metabolism: In studies, phytosterols have demonstrated the ability to maintain proper enzyme function, supporting healthy lipid metabolism.*
Prostate Health: Beta-sitosterol promotes healthy prostate function. This was demonstrated in a 6-month randomized, placebo-controlled double blind study involving 200 participants, and in a 6-month multicentric placebo-controlled double blind trial involving 177 subjects, both conducted in Germany.*
