The Benefit of Beta-Sitosterol

Beta-sitosterol is a substance derived from plants. It is found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. It is used to make medicine. Initial studies have shown that β-sitosterol can increase the proliferation of peripheral blood lymphocytes and enhance the cytotoxic effect of natural killer cells. Further investigation revealed anti-inflammatory properties and has led to suggestions of a role in the control of chronic inflammatory conditions.

Excessive physical stress such as that observed in marathon runners can cause subtle immunosuppression. This may be due, in part, to the fact that it disturbs the normal physiological equilibrium or homeostasis, including that of the immune system. Administration of β-sitosterol (vs placebo) can prevent the typical neutrophilia, lymphopenia, and total leukocytosis.

In foods, beta-sitosterol is added to some margarines (Take Control, for example) that are designed for use as part of a cholesterol-lowering diet and for preventing heart disease. The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows manufacturers to claim that foods containing plant sterol esters such as beta sitosterol are for reducing the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). This rule is based on the FDA’s conclusion that plant sterol esters may reduce the risk of CHD by lowering blood cholesterol levels. Although there is plenty of evidence that beta-sitosterol does lower cholesterol levels, there is no proof that long-term use actually lowers the risk of developing CHD.

Don’t confuse beta-sitosterol with sitostanol, a similar substance contained in the product called Benecol. Both sitostanol and beta-sitosterol are used for lowering cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol and appear to be equally effective.
