ARTERY-CLEANS­ING PLANT STEROLS

Shape (Malaysia) - - Nutrition Right Now -

Sterols are com­pounds that com­pete with the choles­terol in your food for absorption within your di­ges­tive tract, says reg­is­tered di­eti­tian, Me­gan Mad­den. "Sterols have been shown to lower both to­tal and LDL choles­terol and can be found in cer­tain brands of for­ti­fied orange juice, margarine spreads, and milk." Just be sure to check the la­bel—make sure the margarine is trans fat-free and that "par­tially hy­dro­genated oil" does NOT ap­pear on the in­gre­di­ent list.
