... Help! Does Cholester-Off work? An article I read did a study that claims the plant sterols and stanols in Cholest-Off can reduce cholesterol levels by up to 24% with none of the negative side effects I have been experiencing on Lipitor (headaches and occasional stomach aches). It claimed that instead of altering my body chemistry like with Lipitor and other statins, the... (2 replies)

Cholest off
Jun 30, 2005
... It's a way to get plant stanols which prevent some portion of the dietary cholesterol from being absorbed. It costs about as much to get the stanols in Cholest-off as buying Benecol margerine or Minute Maid Healthy Heart orange juice. Might as well get the juice or the margerine thrown in? It is likely to have a small efffect on serum cholesterol but nothing Earth... (1 replies)

... Thanks, Lenin. If my mom stay on the take control spread and the heart healthy oj along with the cholest-off, do you think she can achieve the 24%? She does exercise by walking three miles daily and she works in the garden every day.

... Diet and lifestyle changes over one year were not enough to lower my numbers to an acceptable reading. I now take 10mg Lipitor and 2 Cholest-Off tablets per day (and have for 3 years). My numbers finally came down. I have no trouble taking that statin in that dose. I continue the diet and lifestyle measures. I credit most of the drop to the drug, but of course don't... (26 replies)
OTC Drugs
Jan 7, 2005
... Cholest-off contains plant stanols & sterols which have been shown to lower cholesterol. There are other foods that have been fortified with plant sterols and stanols for the precise purpose of lowering cholesterol - the ones I can think of right now are orange juice and bread spreads. I take Cholest-off as a supplement. I also take a statin drug and follow a low-fat... (2 replies)

Keep up your exercise program - that not only helps with cholesterol, but overall health and longevity, and it just makes you feel better too...

... My formula for controlling cholesterol includes the phytosterols in a daily Cholest-Off supplement and the substitution of Take Control spread for butter & margarine in addition to 10mg Lipitor. Although I haven't made myself a test case, I suspect that the Lipitor accounts for most of the decrease in my TC & LDL. I use the bread spread because I need something to take the... (23 replies)
... My liver overproduces cholestrol. If I maintain a low fat diet, not eating any pork, beef, eggs or any fried foods, my count was still high. Between 245 and 260. With Lipitor, Lescol or Pravachol I brought it down to 220. I could not tell if the statin drugs were causing my muscle pain or the Fibro. I have Fibromyalgia also. So I stopped taking statins to see if the muscle... (8 replies)
