Benecol® Spreads with 3 Way Cholesterol Support*

*Plant Stanols - the plant stanols (1.5-3g) in Benecol® spreads lower cholesterol by 7-10% in 2 to 3 weeks as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.

High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.

Reduced Sat Fat - reducing consumption of saturated fat contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

Omega 3 - ALA (Omega 3) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of ALA.

Benecol® foods are not intended for people who do not need to control their blood cholesterol. A daily intake of 1.5-3g plant stanols is proven to lower cholesterol by 7 to 10% in 2 to 3 weeks. That's why 2-3 servings a day gives the optimal effect when consumed with a main meal and as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, including your '5 a day'.

With Plant Stanol

Benecol® foods all contain plant stanols, proven to lower cholesterol. With delicious yogurts, spreads and yogurt drinks to choose from, it's easy to enjoy Benecol every day.

New Benecol Yogurts

Try one yogurt a day as well as one or two servings of spread to enjoy the optimum cholesterol lowering benefit.

Raised cholesterol is a major risk factor in the development of heart disease. Heart disease has multiple risk factors and you may need to change more than one to lower overall risk.
