Beta-Sitosterol

What Is Beta-Sitosterol?

Beta-sitosterol is a naturally occurring plant sterol. Plant sterols are a family of compounds similar in structure to cholesterol that have positive effects on prostate health.*

Uses For Beta-Sitosterol

Supports Prostate Health:

In a 6-month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study with 200 male subjects, it was proposed that a mixed phytosterol complex providing beta-sitosterol supported healthy urinary flow.

In an 18-month follow-up trial, beta-sitosterol maintained healthy urinary function. These results have been supported in other clinical trials as well.*

Source for Beta-Sitosterol

Beta-sitosterol is sourced from a soy-based phytosterol complex. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. There is no detectable GMO material in this product.
