    Lowers LDL, but…, May 2, 2013

    Many reviews on here go something like this: “I used this product for two months while eating healthier and starting an exercise program, and my cholesterol dropped 30 points!”

    Those are worthless reviews, because there are too many variables. I used this product and did not change anything else. 3 weeks, 2 chews per meal (which is about the whole box). Cholesterol had been consistently at 210, just tested at 181. LDL went from 120 to 107. Triglycerides went WAY down (150 to 70), although I’m not sure why that would be. (Stanols are not usually associated with trig lowering.) Just one person’s evidence to throw on the pile.

    Update: Please consider the fact that LDL is only one measure of heart risk. Ingesting the sugar in these tasty chews could adversely impact your triglyceride levels and blood glucose, which are just as important. They also have calories in them from the sugar. The first two ingredients are sugar and corn syrup. 35 calories per serving times three meals a day equals 105 calories per day, or a pound of weight gain every month. This product works for lowering LDL but I stopped taking it because I concluded the benefits to lower LDL were not outweighed by the calories and the harmful effects of the sugar. If they made a sugar-free version of this, that would be great.

    A reasonable approach would be to ingest these only with your “worst” meal of the day. But even then you must consider that a fatty meal (which increases LDL) also increases your HDL, the good cholesterol. So I do not even bother with that.

    Not wanting to resort to “drugs” to manage Cholesterol, I did some research on plant Stanols, and plant Sterols. They both seem to have the ability to lower the cholesterol in your blood. However, based on a Johns Hopkins health alert….plant sterols tend to lose their ability to lower cholesterol, and instead start to appear in the blood them selves. Where as plant STANOLS seem to stay active and continue to lower cholesterol. BENECOL is the only off the shelf item that contains stanols instead of sterols. The Benecol spread is good and tastes fine, but the caramel chews are portable so you can easily take them with you. I would recommend the chews to anyone who wants to keeps tabs on your cholesterol….they are reasonably inexpensive, taste good, and have STANOLS in them…and they are portable. I was able to lower my cholesterol by 80 points by consumming STANOLS and watching my intake of cholesterol….
