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 2 tablespoons of buttery spreads.

The result? A functional food that tastes like butter and works like magic, without any known side effects. Benecol® is 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.

Fun Facts For Dietitians about Benecol®

  • Benecol® Original can be used in cooking and baking as a 1:1 swap for butter
  • For clients on a statin, Benecol® can provide an additional reduction in cholesterol
  • Clients only need 2 tablespoons per day to get the recommended 2 grams of plant stanols

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!"
