Benecol yogurt drinks lower cholesterol effectively

In Hong Kong, approximately half of the people over the age of 45 suffer from high cholesterol levels which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Lifestyle and dietary changes are always the first step in the primary prevention of CVD and should thus take place before starting lipid-lowering drugs, but also continued even when drug treatment is initiated1-2.

One of the easiest dietary modifications to lower cholesterol is starting to use Benecol® yogurt drinks, cholesterol-lowering functional foods. Plant stanol ester in Benecol inhibits cholesterol absorption in the intestine. One drink a day is enough to lower LDL-cholesterol on average by 10% and to sustain the reduction achieved.
