Why Lainey & Sam Choose:

Plant Stanols for Reducing Cholesterol

Plant stanols are proven to reduce cholesterol for most people, and are supported by 80+ peer-reviewed clinical studies. So, the team at Benecol® put 2 grams of plant stanols into 4 tablespoons of buttery spreads, and 2 grams of plant stanols into 4 delicious chocolate Chews.

The result? Functional food products with plant stanols that taste great and works like magic, without any known side effects. Benecol® Products are an easy way to get the recommended 2 grams of plant stanols per day, which has been shown to significantly reduce LDL and total cholesterol for most people.

Our Benecol® Recipe Favorites

Sam's Pick: "Savory Oatmeal! I like to mix 1 tablespoon of Benecol® into oatmeal and add fruits and mixed nuts - it adds a savory component that's different from the traditional oatmeal toppings."

Lainey's Pick: "Any vegetable topped with melted Benecol®! Customized with fresh herbs and spices, of course!"
