Benecol® Soft Chews contain plant stanol ester, which inhibits the absorption of cholesterol in the small intestine. The absorption of both the dietary and the biliary cholesterol into the body are reduced, which leads to lower concentrations of blood total and LDL cholesterol.
Benecol® Soft Chews are suitable and effective for all individuals who need to lower their blood cholesterol concentration, including people with diabetes. Benecol® products may not be nutritionally appropriate for pregnant or breastfeeding women or for children under the age of five years. The cholesterol-lowering effect of plant stanol ester has been shown to be additive to that of statin medication. Benecol® Soft Chews can be used together with statin medication, but the use of Benecol® products should always be mentioned to the treating doctor.
