Did you know that men tend to have higher cholesterol than pre-menopausal women?

Did you know that the National Institutes of Health recommendation for lowering cholesterol is eating less saturated fat and cholesterol, exercise, weight loss, eat more soluable fiber and consume 2,000 mg of plant sterols and stanols daily?

Did you know that Shaklee now has a natural supplement that provides the 2,000 mg of plant sterols and stanols?  Shaklee Cholesterol Reduction Complex is a proprietary formulation with clinically proven ingredients that help prevent the absorption of cholesterol and lower LDL cholesterol.

Plant sterols and stanols have been clinically proven by more than 80 studies to lower LDL cholesterol.
Shaklee’s Cholesterol Reduction Complex delivers 100% of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) recommendation for plant sterols and stanols which is 2,000 mg in two easy to take tablets.
Shaklee’s Cholesterol Reduction Complex is made with a powerful blend of sterols and stanols which are found naturally in plants, fruits, vegetables and grains.
So how, exactly, do plant sterols and stanols work?
1. Plant sterols and stanols are ingested from food or supplements.
2. Because they are structurally similar to cholesterol, plant sterols and stanols compete for absorption in the intestines.
3. Plant sterols and stanols bind to receptors in the intestines, leaving cholesterol behind.
4. The net result is that less cholesterol is absorbed by the body, and less ends up in the bloodstream.
