What It Is

Cooper Complete Plant Sterols Supplement contains 1.3 grams (1300 mg) of plant sterols to promote cardiovascular health by supporting normal lipid levels.† The American Heart Association reports that almost half of American adults (age 20 and older) have elevated blood cholesterol levels, a key risk factor for heart disease.

How to Use:

Incorporate plant sterol supplements into meals. As a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules per day (ideally one (1) capsule with each of your larger meals) or as recommended by your health care professional. Each bottle contains a one-month supply of 60 capsules.

How It Helps

Plant sterols and stanols, also known as phytosterols, are naturally occurring compounds found in small amounts in plant-based foods such as vegetable oils, grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, and fruits and vegetables. Studies have found that plant sterol and sterol esters effectively reduce total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol by approximately 10 to 15 percent.† Molecularly, these phytosterols compete with cholesterol for absorption, lowering cholesterol absorption in the digestive system, and play a key role in supporting healthy cholesterol levels.

Overall Cardiovascular Health

The Food and Drug Administration states, “products containing at least 0.65 gram per serving of plant sterol esters, taken twice daily with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

In a process in the small intestine, phytosterols displace cholesterol from food and reduce cholesterol absorption, resulting in a beneficial effect on blood cholesterol levels. In addition, the minimal amount of phytosterols that are absorbed into the body, once taken up by the liver, are rapidly secreted into bile by hepatic transporters at a high rate, enhancing cholesterol excretion. These mechanisms allow plant sterols to provide multi-spectrum support for cardiovascular health and cholesterol management.

Helps Maintain Healthy Cholesterol Levels

Several clinical studies have evaluated sterols or stanols (usually as margarine or spread) to statin medications, and most have resulted in an additional lowering of LDL cholesterol by another 7- 10 percent. This research suggests plant sterols or stanols may benefit those who can’t tolerate higher statin doses but need further LDL reductions.

A meta-analysis encompassing 306 adults and eight studies found taking plant sterols, plant stanols, or a combination of plant sterols and stanols in concert with a statin medication lowered total cholesterol by an average of 14.01 mg/dL and LDL cholesterol 13.26 mg/dL. The studies did not find any changes in HDL cholesterol or triglycerides.

When considering plant sterols or plant stanols, the overall body of research indicates plant sterols are better absorbed than plant stanols. Interestingly, a meta-analysis of 14 studies (and 531 people) showed no statistically or clinically significant difference between plant sterols and plant stanols in their ability to lower total cholesterol.

9 Questions
Ask a Question
Q:

Why would someone taking a statin medication to reduce cholesterol also take Plant Sterols Supplements?

A:

It’s estimated that almost 30% of patients on statin medications experience self-reported muscle aches and pains. When a higher statin dose can’t be taken due to muscle pain, Plant Sterol Supplements may further support their cholesterol goals.

Q:

Is it okay to take Plant Sterols Supplements if I’m also on a statin medication?

A:

Yes, it is safe to take Plant Sterol Supplements while also taking a statin medication.

Q:

What foods have high plant sterols naturally?

A:

Plant Sterols naturally occur in low levels in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts (especially peanuts and peanut by-products), cereals, seeds and vegetable oils. All vegetables contain at least some plant sterols. A study conducted in Sweden analyzed the plant sterols found in 20 different vegetables and 14 fruits. The median plant sterol content of vegetables was 14 milligrams (mg) per 100 grams (g) (approximately 3.5 ounces) and 16 mg per 100 g for fruits. Of the 20 vegetables, broccoli had the highest concentration, while among the fruits, oranges and passion fruits had the highest levels.

Q:

Who should not take Plant Sterols Supplements?

A:

Plant sterol supplements are not recommended for adults with healthy cholesterol levels or for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Q:

Do Cooper Complete Plant Sterols Supplements need to be taken with food?

A:

Plant Sterol Supplements work by reducing the absorption of cholesterol in the gut, so it’s best to take them when you’re eating cholesterol-containing foods. Ideally, Plant Sterol Supplements should be taken 15—to 20 minutes before your two largest, fattiest meals each day.

Q:

How long do I need to take Plant Sterols Supplement before I notice a difference?

A:

It should take approximately two to three weeks of daily use to see a difference in cholesterol blood levels. If the use of Plant Sterols Supplements are discontinued, it’s expected that blood cholesterol levels will rise to previous levels.

Q:

Someone told me they take plant sterols for immune health. Does that make sense?

A:

Maybe, but there needs to be way more research. A tiny bit of research has evaluated the potential impact of plant sterols on immune health, and it appears plant sterols may have an immune-balancing effect.† The preliminary research indicates:

  • Enhanced immune function†
  • Down-regulation of an overactive immune system†
  • Promotes healthy stress response by optimizing DHEA to cortisol levels†

It’s important to point out that plant sterols supplements should be taken on an empty stomach if they are being taken for immune health benefits.

Q:

I’ve heard people refer to plant sterols as phytosterols. Are they the same thing?

A:

Yes, phytosterol is a term used to describe plant sterols.

Q:

What and when are the best times to take Cooper Complete Plant Sterols Supplements?

A:

It’s important to take plant sterols with or immediately following your meal. Since the suggested serving size for Cooper Complete Plant Sterols is two softgels per day, we recommend that you choose the two meals that contain the highest amounts of fat and take the supplement then, as you want the plant sterols to interact with the cholesterol that’s in the meal.
