Beta Sitosterol supplement dosage, review, safety
December 14 2016

  • Comprehensive Phytosterols Complex
  • Doctor Formulated
  • Dietary Supplement

Information
Phytosterols are natural components of many vegetables and grains. The three main phytosterols in this phytosterol complex are beta-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol.

Foods high in plant sterols
Beta sitosterol is a plant-derived sterol. Plant sterols or phytosterols are common components of plant foods, especially plant oils, seeds and nuts, cereals and legumes. Beta sitosterol is found in high amounts in nuts and amaranth.

Suggested Use, how much to take
As a dietary supplement, take one or two capsules in the morning on an empty stomach or as recommended by your health care provider.

Beta sitosterol supplement dosage:

Q. What is the right dosage of beta sitosterol supplement?
A. Since long term human studies are not available regarding beta sitosterol supplement use, for the time being it is a good idea to take a day or two off each week from the use of a beta sitosterol supplement. Also, check to see if any prostate formula or other products you are taking contain beta sitosterol. One such popular product is Prostate Power Rx which includes this plant sterol along with saw palmetto, lycopene, and other beneficial nutraceuticals.

Beta Sitosterol side effects, safety, adverse reactions
At this time little research is available with the use of a beta sitosterol supplement to give us a full understanding of the potential short term and long term beta sitosterol side effects. For the time being you may wish to take a week off each month, or two days off each week. See the latest research regarding Sitosterol side effects.

Combinations, interactions

Q. Can a beta sitosterol supplement and saw palmetto herb be taken together? I am hoping the combination of beta sitosterol and saw palmetto can help with prostate health.
A. They can, but it would be best not to take large amounts of each for prolonged periods without breaks. It is also a good idea to first learn how each supplement works for you by itself before combining.

Prostate health
Q.
I heard on the radio that beta sitosterol is good for prostate health. Which is better, saw palmetto or beta sitosterol?
A. There have been many more studies done with saw palmetto compared to beta sitosterol. We prefer combination formulas such as Prostate Power Rx that have several herbs and nutrients that work together.

Taking breaks from use
Q.
I plan to take a beta sitosterol supplement for a long time and was wondering whether it is a good idea to take a break from using this product.
A. As with most supplements that have not had long term human studies, we suggest taking a day or two off a week from the use of a beta sitosterol supplement, and it would be a good idea to take a full week off every other month.
