Sterols and Sterolins

Nature's Proven Immune Supplement

Scientists first isolated sterols, plant fats - and their glucosides, sterolins, and other natural compounds found in fruits and vegetables, as far back as 1922. However, their remarkable health benefits were only realized and confirmed by extensive research in the last two decades.

Over 4000 published studies to date have examined phytosterols and 120 studies are double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials. These studies revealed that concentrations of sterols and sterolins offered extraordinary support to the immune system.

   

Sterols and sterolins are found abundantly in all plant materials and also in shellfish. Raw, unprocessed nuts and seeds and their oils are the richest source. Unfortunately, due to our standard methods of processing foods, the sterols and sterolins are destroyed. Freezing fruits and vegetables destroys the sterolins, and boiling vegetables causes the sterolins to be released into the cooking water.

Research suggests that it is the sterolins, not the sterols, which are the key to promoting a healthy inflammation and immune response. And while a good diet can provide a person with a healthful portion of phytosterols, the sterolins are much harder to come by.


How Sterols and Sterolins Encourage Immune Function

According to Lorna Vanderhaege, an expert in immune health, sterols and sterolins are the preferred supplement of choice for balancing the immune system. Here is what she has to say:

"Plant sterols and sterolins enhance the ability of T-cells to divide thereby increasing the number of T-cells in the immune system arsenal. They also promote the secretion of immune protective factors. These powerful plant fats do this without enhancing the action of inflammatory agents and the production of damaging antibodies.

By reducing the production of antibodies the immune system can get back into balance and stop destroying the body's own tissues....."

Lorna R. Vanderhaege, author of Healthy Immunity: Scientifically Proven Natural Treatments for Conditions from A-ZParenting & Families Books) , is a huge advocate for using plant sterols and sterolins.

She recommends sterols and sterolins for maintaining a balanced immune system.

Various combinations of sterols and sterolins have been shown in clinical trials and anecdotal usage to provide nutritional support for joint health, neuromuscular health, endocrine system health, and enhance almost all other immune functions.
