Phytosterols are compounds found naturally in plants that serve as structural support in plant cells similar to the role of cholesterol in animal cells. Phytosterols only differ slightly from cholesterol structurally. These compounds are being used for a variety of health improvements. The US Food and Drug Administration endorses products with phytosterols as part of a dietary strategy to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. An additional recognized benefit of phytosterol intake is the reduction of blood cholesterol. Phytosterols have been shown to support specific nutritional needs in both men and women, including for prostate health and menopausal needs. Graminex® offers clinical studies scientifically substantiating the value of Graminex® Rye Grass Flower Pollen Extract for these support functions.
The lipid soluble portions of Graminex® Flower Pollen Extracts are standardized to contain at least 7%. Each batch of product undergoes rigorous laboratory testing to ensure these specifications to ensure the highest level of quality control.
