Is there a minimum amount of plant stanols that I should have to lower my cholesterol?
Yes, there is! In people who have high blood cholesterol, a daily intake of 1.5-2.4g of plant stanols lowers LDL or the ‘bad’ cholesterol by an average of 7-10% within two to three weeks.
You need to have these amounts every day for minimum two to three weeks to see the beneficial effect to your cholesterol levels. To keep up the effect on cholesterol lowering, Benecol products need to be used every day.
