Now Foods, Beta-Sitosterol Plant Sterols, 90 Softgels
By Now Foods4 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 2016
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.

CardioAid-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 health 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.

One for breakfast and one for dinner is all you need for your prostate. Works great less bathroom trips.I don't know why its not labled for prostate but the research is there. Its cheap and it works!
Beta sitosterol is said to balance the DHEA/cortisol ratio and thus it helps with inflammatory diseases. I have Mb Bechterew (ankylosing spondylitis) and Crohn's and even though I take other things to keep inflammation in check like 4 capsules of Wholemega 1000 (New chapter), Zyflamend (New chapter), Inflama-rest (Source Naturals) and Black cumin seed oil and Tart cherry juice (naturally normalizes tnf-alpha, Beta sitosterol is vital. It melts away dangerous belly fat (together with black cumin oil and Udo's oil blend) and improves PCOS and insulin resistance. I have no longer too high cortisol.
