What Is It?
CholestePure is a high purity phytosterol complex.
Phytosterols are sterol molecules, similar in structure
to cholesterol, which are synthesized by plants and are
present naturally in grains, nuts, seeds, fruits and
vegetable oils. CholestePure is a broad spectrum balance
of the most prized phytosterols, including beta-sitosterol,
campesterol, stigmasterol, and brassicasterol.*
• A convenient phytosterol source, but without the calories
and fat from specialty margarines, spreads, or salad
dressings that have incorporated phytosterol esters into
them as a result of recent health conscious trends.*
• An enhanced concentration of phytosterols compared
to traditional Western diets that only provide about
200 mg phytosterols per day (based on beta-sitosterol
content), an amount too low to provide nutritional
