HOW CAN I HELP M
TO MINIMIZE THE EFFECTS OF
Lower or maintain a healthy weight.
People with allergies and obesity have shown a better response in the production of antibodies after consuming plant sterols.
Viruses which have a lipid (fat) outer coat, such as COVID, VIH, Zika, and Hepatitis B, are quicker to infect the host cell when a section of its membrane is high in cholesterol.
WHEN CHOLESTEROL IS LOWERED IN THE CELL MEMBRANE, VIRAL INFECTIVITY DECREASES.
Plant sterols would act as antivirals, preventing viruses from entering the host cell
Infectivity decrease in viruses with lipid coating.
Balance restoration in the immune response.
Alleviation of chronic inflammatory response (linked to comorbidities).
They lower cholesterol and triglycerides
which has positive results in overweight people, since it has been observed that plant sterols activate fatty acid catabolism.
They reduce waist size
which is closely linked to obesity and cardiometabolic diseases.
They modulate the innate immune response.
They balance the function of adaptive immunity.
They regulate exacerbated inflammatory responses.
They favor the resolution of the inflammatory response once it has begun.
They have shown, in controlled trials, a direct effect on the infectivity of viruses with lipid coating (such as coronavirus).
Plant sterols have no contraindications.
Children under the age of 5 and pregnant women should consult with a doctor before taking any measures to lower their cholesterol and strengthen their immune response.
