- Plant sterols, particularly in concentrations as in STEROL 117, reduce cholesterol absorption by competing with cholesterol for uptake into mixed micelles.
- Inflammation and Oxidative StressExogenol is a proprietary blend that contains higher than usual proanthocyanidin isomers for increased peroxyl radical scavenging. With chronic inflammation, free radicals can cause tissue destruction, contributing to cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, arthritic , kidney, amyloidosis, inflammatory bowel and other chronic diseases.
