      Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Heart Choice Plant Sterols - 60 Softgels:

      One thing that hasn't been mentioned here is the fact that plant sterols will really boost your immune system. I rarely get sick, and if I do, I am not affected by the virus/bug like those around me! I will stay on these for life; they make a big difference in my health.

        Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Heart Choice Plant Sterols - 60 Softgels:

        For years, my cholesterol has been hard to control. Without changing anything in my diet (or medications) and just adding the Vitamin Shoppe Heart Choice Plant Sterols to my supplements, I went from at risk (high total cholesterol / less than 35 HDL) to normal (183 total cholesterol / 53 HDL) within 2 months. LDL is now down to 103. My doctor is amazed, especially since I can't take statins.

            I take one in the morning and one at night. My cholesterol level on 4-2-2013 was 274; LDL 176, I started taking these in the beginning of May, I deliberately did NOT change my diet, eating junk food everyday. Just had my cholesterol checked today and my level is 249; LDL 157. Now I am going to change my diet and eliminate junk food and starchy foods and will update this in Oct, 2013.

                    8 months ago my doctor performed a bloodwork panel and my triglycerides were 1300!! He told me I was at a high risk of heart disease and possibly a heart attack. I began taking Tricor and within 3 months my triglycerides only dropped to 980, still dangerously high. Someone told me about this Heart Choice Plant Sterols product so I immediately went out an purchased it. I had another blood panel taken 2 months later after being on the plant sterols and my triglycerides had dropped to 260!! I stopped taking the tricor and only took the plant sterols for the next 2 months. Last week I had another blood panel and my triglycerides and cholesterol levels were almost within normal range !! Woo Hoo!! I will never stop taking this product and have both of my parents taking it now too.

                        I had been following a pretty healthy diet and exercising but that wasn't enough and I still had borderline high chlesterol. This product along with Omega 3 fish oils when the chlesterol was rechecked 4 months later brought my cholesterol down to a very good normal range and my levels resulted in the doctor saying "Wow, this is great!"

                                My periodic total cholesterol readings were 200-240 and generally rising. Under my doctor's supervision, this plus Red Yeast brought my reading down to 170. My HDL was good to begin with and remained about the same, making my LDL/HDL ratio better. The latest reading was so good, my doctor told me to cut down on my Red Yeast intake.

                                    With some minor dietary changes and excercise, my total cholesterol including HDL, LDL and triglycerides have improved quite a bit since starting this product in the beginning of 2009. It has dropped from 185 in Dec. 2008 to 162 in August, 2009. My most recent tests in March 2010 show my cholesterol has now dropped to 162, HDL 86, LDL 60, Triglycerides at 86. These are the best numbers I have ever had. Good that it made in soft gel as there are not as many fillers and probably better absorbed by the body than tablets. Keep making them this way as tablets are cheaper to make, but have more fillers and don't dissolve as well due to the compaction.

                                    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-06-30
                                    To get an LDl of 60 is astonishing. The best that lipid specialists hope for is LDL around 70 with heavy cholestrol meds like statins + others--usually for high-risk cardio patients. HNow old are you, and what else do you do?
