["Natural" treatments of hypercholesterolemia].


PMID 17129518

Abstract

In this article we briefly review the evidence on the effect of different "natural" products on cholesterolemia. Plant stanols and sterols reduce cholesterol intestinal absorption and decrease total and LDL cholesterol by approximately 10%. Polycosanol is a mixture of saturated alcohols that seem to inhibit cholesterol hepatic synthesis and decrease total and LDL cholesterol by up to 25%. The effects on the cholestorolemia of soy and soluble fiber are modest.
