  • staest
  • Serum plant stanols increased slightly, but significantly compared with controls (serum sitostanol during intervention, controls: 16 +/- 1 microg/dL, staest: 37 +/- 2 microg/dL, serum campestanol during intervention, controls: 0.5 +/- 0 microg/dL, staest: 9 +/- 1 microg/dL, P (chiro.org)
  • Most of the studies included in the plant stanol ester (STAEST) meta-analysis have been performed with solid food format, and only in four studies out of 61 has the plant stanol been in liquid dairy and one in a nondairy form [ 3 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The staest group (n=46) consumed rapeseed oil-based spread enriched with staest (3.0 g of plant stanols/d), and controls (n=46) the same spread without staest. (biomedcentral.com)
  • inflammation
  • Researchers from the University of Maastricht have recently found in preclinical studies using an accepted animal model that plant sterols and stanols reduced inflammation in the liver and the development of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (Plat et al, 2014). (ipssa-association.com)
  • The Maastricht researchers hypothesize that plant sterols/stanols may also lower liver inflammation in humans who have already established hepatic inflammation or are at risk due to being obese, having diabetes or high blood cholesterol. (ipssa-association.com)
  • Therefore, the Maastricht researchers, supported by the three IPSSA member companies BASF, Raisio and Unilever, applied for a research grant from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs via the "Top Sector Life Sciences & Health" to further study whether liver inflammation can be lowered by plant sterols and stanols in humans including patients with NASH.

  • IPSSA companies support this research as it may provide substantiated evidence for health benefits of plant sterols/stanols beyond cholesterol lowering and may hence offer opportunities for further promote health by addressing an emerging global health risk such as liver inflammation.

  • Indeed, adding plant sterol-stanol esters to a high-fat-diet reduced hepatic inflammation as indicated by immunohistochemical stainings and gene expression for inflammatory markers. (duhnnae.com)
