Plant sterol ester spread lowers total, LDL cholesterol in children
As a single therapy for cholesterol lowering, 10% reduction is pretty substantial. As with any natural approach, addition of exercise, other dietary modifications and intake of beneficial fats (nuts, olive oil, fish oil…) could send that response rate much higher. This study addresses treatment in children and should be viewed as a primary approach. I always get very, very nervous about long term pharmacotherapy that has known hepatotoxic effects in children.
