Visit benecol.co.uk/benecol.ie to find out more about Benecol's range of delicious, Cholesterol-Lowering foods.

This Benecol® spread contains plant stanols, proven to Lower your Cholesterol by 7-10 %

Enjoying 3 servings Daily helps keep your levels lower and gives an extra Boost to the positive diet and lifestyle steps you've already taken.

Plant stanol ester has been shown to lower cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. A daily intake of 1.5-2.4g plant stanols lowers cholesterol by 7 to 10% in 2 to 3 weeks. That's why 3 servings a day (each containing 0.53g of plant stanols) gives the effect when consumed with a main meal and as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, including your "5 a day".

Proven to lower cholesterol

With plant stanols


Lower Age Limit - Advisory (Years): 5

Benecol® foods are not intended for people who do not need to control their blood cholesterol.

The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 1.5-3g plant stanols. More than 3g of plant stanols per day is not recommended. Check with your doctor if you are taking cholesterol lowering medication. Benecol foods may not be nutritionally appropriate for pregnant or breast feeding women and children under five years old. Heart disease has multiple risk factors and you may need to change more than one to lower overall risk.
