Now Foods, Beta-Sitosterol Plant Sterols, 180 Softgels
By Now Foods2 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

- Plus Added Fish Oil
- A Dietary Supplement
- GMP - Quality Assured
Cardio-Aid-S Plant Sterol Esters is a combination of the ester forms of Beta-Sitosterol, Campesterol and Stigmasterol. Plant Sterols are plant-derived compounds that are structurally similar to cholesterol so that they help to limit the absorption of cholesterol from the digestive tract. In this way, CardioAid-S can help to maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
Foods containing at least 0.65 grams per serving of plant sterol esters, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of NOW Beta-Sitosterol Plant Sterols with Fish Oil supplies 1 gram (1,000 mg) of plant sterol esters in a base of fish oil.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels twice daily with meals. Consider taking these other NOW products: Sytrinol, Flush-Free Niacin and Pantethine.
Softgel capsule (gelatin, glycerin, water, carob) and soy lecithin.
Contains fish (sardines, anchovies, mackerel) and soy.
Not manufactured with yeast, wheat, gluten, milk, egg, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I HAD very high cholesterol for almost 5 years (2010 to mid 2015). I started doctor's medicine (statin) but have not been feeling well after that. My cholesterol reading did not go down either. Doctor wanted then to increase my statin dosage. I refused, knowing well that it will not do good to my liver. My brother, with the same problem, introduced to me the NOW FOODS Beta-Sitosterol Plant Sterols. I then decided to give it a try ......and guess what! My cholesterol has gone down, down & down after a period of 6 months. Today, my cholesterol level is within the normal range! Thank you iHerb for this wonderful herb. I have already recommended this to several friends & they their friends. I will be recommending this herb to some more friends to help them enjoy life! I'm very happy with my cholesterol level with the help of this herb plus a sensible diet & some exercises.
I have tried Plant Sterols for a while now and it hasnt improved my cholestoral profile. I will check again in a few months.
