  • consumption
  • Because these foods are not low in calories, those interested in increasing their plant sterol and stanol consumption must be mindful when eating fortified foods to guard against weight gain. (ehow.co.uk)
  • For those who do not want to make diet changes, supplements offer an alternative means of plant sterol and stanol consumption. (ehow.co.uk)
  • We recently demonstrated in mice that plant sterol and stanol ester consumption inhibited the development of liver inflammation , which needs to be validated in humans in a translational approach. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Serum proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 concentration is not increased by plant stanol ester consumption in normo- to moderately hypercholesterolemic non-obese subjects. (clinsci.org)
  • The hypocholesterolemic effect of plant stanol ester consumption has been studied extensively, but its effect on cardiovascular health has been less frequently investigated. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Unfortunately, there are no studies which have investigated whether plant stanol consumption can alter future coronary events, although the effects of plant stanols have been evaluated via surrogate indicators of cardiovascular health. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Sitostanol
  • dissolving a stanol selected from the group consisting of clionastanol, 22,23 dihydrobrassicastanol, campestanol, sitostanol, and mixtures thereof, with an edible solubilizing agent, an effective amount of a suitable antioxidant and an effectiveamount of a suitable dispersant.

  • staest
  • In a randomized, double-blind, parallel study of 49 hypercholesterolemic subjects (mean age 62 years, range 41-73) consumed a test diet without (control, n = 24), and with added plant stanol esters (staest, n = 25) over 10 weeks followed by 4 weeks on home diet. (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)
  • Liver Inflammation
  • In the current proposed pilot study, the effect of consuming plant sterol or plant stanol esters on biopsy proven liver inflammation will be investigated in NAFLD patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • 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-association.com)
  • Further, the effects of plant sterols and stanols on liver inflammation will be investigated in placebo-controlled human intervention studies, of which the first study will start within the coming months. (ipssa-association.com)
  • 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.

  • Stanozolol
  • Stanol (Stanozolol) by Eurochem Labs is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, although its activity is much milder than this androgen in nature. (zacheai.xyz)
  • cereals
  • Raisio's main products include snacks and cereals, the ingredient of plant stanol ester in Benecol products as well as the Benecol range, confectionery and feeds for cattle and fish. (ipssa-association.com)
  • substances
  • Three weeks ago, one of my blogs focused on the presumed benefits of food products containing plant substances known as stanols or sterols. (drbriffa.com)
  • In summary, there is no evidence that stanols and sterols benefit human health, and quite a few lines of evidence that suggest these substances have potential for harm. (drbriffa.com)
