Beta-sitosterol (beta sitosterol) is a plant chemical called phytosterol or plant alcohol and is found in every vegetable we eat. While we eat it every day, we do not get enough of it in our diet.

Research attaches many benefits to beta-sitosterol including prostate health and maintaining a healthy cholesterol level.

Beta-sitosterol has long been used by Europeans for prostate problems and now its popularity is growing among American men. Promising results from research are published regularly. A Lancet study found that men with BPH who were given beta sitosterol daily for six months showed significant improvement in urinary difficulties. Those given a placebo reported no relief.

A 1999 review of four clinical trials involving 519 men with mild to moderate BPH found that beta-sitosterol provided notable relief from urinary problems. It also increased urine flow and caused few side effects. Interestingly, benefits matched those commonly seen with prescription BPH drugs.

Research conducted during the past 30 years has also indicated that beta-sitosterol has positive effects on both cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Dietary supplementation has been shown to affect both the absorption of dietary cholesterol, and the systemic levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, helping to normalize both. Beta-sitosterol is known to interfere with the absorption of cholesterol. It can also improve the HDL/LDL ratio.
