This product is approved by HEART UK - The Cholesterol Charity

The Benecol range of products have met the stringent criteria, checks and balances operated by HEART UK's product approval scheme. 

HEART UK has approved the Benecol range of food and drinks because of the addition of Plant Stanol Esters to these products, a unique ingredient that can lower cholesterol.

The Benecol range consists of Yogurts, Yogurt Drinks and Spreads and all contain the unique cholesterol-lowering ingredient, Plant Stanol Ester. The Plant Stanols in Benecol Food and Drinks work by partially blocking the uptake of cholesterol in the gut, so less gets absorbed into the bloodstream.

The  Plant Stanols in the Benecol range have been proven, in over 70 independent clinical trials, to lower cholesterol by up to 10% in just 3 weeks. A daily intake of 1.5-2.4g Plant Stanols lowers cholesterol by 7 to 10% in 2 to 3 weeks as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Benecol Yogurt Drinks contain 2g plant stanols which is why one bottle a day is perfect for lowering cholesterol while 3 servings of Benecol Yogurts or Spreads each day provide an alternative way to lower cholesterol.
