More than 200 studies endorse phytosterols as cholesterol reducers, with 2.000 mg being the appropriate portion of consumption to achieve this effect. Cardiosmile offers 2.000 mg of free phytosterols in water in a daily sachet, which can be added to a liquid or food of your choice.
Also, several international health food and government entities recommend the daily consumption of phytosterols to help reduce cholesterol. Among them we can find:

Nutrartis, through a unique and patented process, created Cardiosmile with the purpose of being the most convenient way to consume phytosterols. Each sachet of Cardiosmile contains the 2.000 mg needed to help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides*. In addition, as Cardiosmile has free phytosterols in water, it can be consumed in any liquid or food of your choice.

“Phytosterols/phytostanols help maintain normal cholesterol levels in the blood.”
“Dietary supplements: Phytosterols/phytostanols help reduce cholesterol absorption.”
“(Phytosterols/phytostanols) Help lower LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol in the blood. They help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. “
“Foods that contain phytosterols or phytostanols, which contain at least 1.000 mg of phytosterols or phytostanols, when consumed twice a day with food to achieve up to 3.000 mg daily can help improve the lipid profile.”
The FDA also recommends the daily consumption of phytosterols to help reduce cholesterol. It is currently in process of modifying its standard, stating that “the daily dose of phytosterols that has been associated with the reduction of cardiovascular disease risk is 2.000 mg, based on the weight of unesterified phytosterols”.
“Among many factors that affect cardiovascular diseases, diets that contain phytosterols esters and/or phytostanols esters and that are low in saturated fats and cholesterol, and without trans fatty acids, can contribute to reducing cholesterol levels and the risk of these illnesses”.
