Effects of non-esterified stanols in a liquid emulsion on cholesterol absorption and synthesis in hypercholesterolemic men

Effects of non-esterified stanols in a liquid emulsion on cholesterol absorption and synthesis in hypercholesterolemic men

European Journal of Nutrition 41(2): 54-60

Background: Numerous studies have shown that dietary plant sterols (phytosterols and phytostanols) and their esters can decrease cholesterol absorption. However, few researchers have examined the effects of plant sterols on cholesterol absorption and synthesis using stable isotope tracers, instead of relying on endogenous pathway precursors. Further, we have worked with non-esterified lecithin-solubilized stanols as opposed to the more frequently studied esterified sterols and stanols.
