Lesterol: plant sterol combined with Allicin. Beta-sitosterol is one of hundreds of plant-derived 'sterol' compounds (including stanols) that have structural similarity to the cholesterol made in our bodies. The most prevalent phytosterols in the diet are beta-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol. Plant oils contain the highest concentration of phytosterols - so nuts and seeds contain fairly high levels and all fruits and vegetables generally contain some amount of phytosterols. Perhaps the best way to obtain beta-sitosterol is to eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds (which obviously brings numerous other benefits as well) or to take a daily dose of LESTEROL®.
