Harvard Health Publications says that the active constituents in CholestOff, plant sterols and stanols, may cause nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, heartburn, or indigestion. Men may feel diminished sexual desire or impotence. Few individuals experience these adverse effects, and the total risk of side effects is comparable to that of using a low-dose statin.
According to Harvard Health Publications, plant sterols and stanols, such as those included in CholestOff, reduce the absorption of cholesterol from diet, hence lowering an individual’s LDL, or bad, cholesterol levels. According to certain studies, plant sterols may also reduce the incidence of breast, prostate, and colon cancer. They function by forcing cancer cells to self-destruct, slowing tumour growth, and preventing the spread of cancer, according to laboratory study.
CholestOff is an over-the-counter dietary supplement that, according to Nature Made, contains 900 mg of plant sterols and stanols per serving. The suggested daily dosage is two servings. In a study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition in November 2011, it was found that the supplement reduced the cholesterol levels of study participants by 5 percent when combined with exercise and the Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes Diet recommended by the National Cholesterol Education Program.
