Are you on a statin medication?
Simvastatin, Lipitor, Pravastatin, Crestor... these are all statins that help lower cholesterol. But guess what?
So do the plant stanols in Benecol® Buttery Spreads.
The plant stanols in our spreads are proven in 80+ clinical studies to reduce cholesterol, somewhat like statins can do. And, if you're on a statin, Benecol® can help reduce cholesterol on top of those benefits!
Of the 71 million people diagnosed with high LDL cholesterol, just 34 million (48% of this group) treat it with prescription medications - typically statins - and only 23 million (33%) of this group) have reading indicating the condition is under control, according to the CDC. This is were Benecol® can come in, and be that extra step in your cholesterol lowering plan.
The possibility of statin side effects is scary. As a functional food, Benecol® Buttery Spreads may be a great choice for people who want to avoid cholesterol drugs, pills and more medications. Talk to your healthcare professional about adding Benecol® to your daily cholesterol-lowering strategy.
