Beta Sitosterol (B-Sitosterol)

Beta Sitosterol, also known as B-Sitosterol, is one of the many plant sterols (phytosterols) that are similar to natural cholesterol. They can be found in a number of different fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Many Beta sitosterols are white and waxy; they appear to be powdery and they have a unique odor. They are alcohol-soluble, but are hydrophobic. This trait makes them a bit tricky to utilize, but they are frequently used in medications.

Some of the most common uses for beta sitosterol include:

-Heart disease medication. Beta sitosterol promotes good heart health and helps improve circulation.
-High cholesterol treatment regimens. Even though they are similar to cholesterol, they encourage good cholesterol development and maintain levels.
-Immune system boosting, even if you’re just fighting the common cold. In most cases, however, beta sitosterol is used to help with HIV/AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis (TB), and lupus.
-Many medications used to help with gall stones contain some form of beta sitosterol.
-Even though not many scientific studies have found a link, many people will take beta sitosterol supplements to help prevent colon cancer and cervical cancer.
-Some men will use beta sitosterol to help prevent prostate problems, including enlarged prostate and/or the prevention of prostate cancer.
-Some studies suggest that beta sitosterol can help with some of the symptoms of menopause, especially mood swings and hot flashes.
-Certain sexual activity enhancing supplements contain beta sitosterol.
-Beta sitosterol can help reduce inflammation; some marathon runners will use it to help reduce pain and swelling after a race.
