    Cholesterol is carried in the bloodstream as lipoproteins. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is the "bad"
       cholesterol because elevated LDL levels are associated with an increased risk of coronary artery (heart)

                  Beta-sitosterol Can Lower Cholesterol and be Effective for Prostate Health
                                                               By John Bradstreet

    For many years studies have shown that Beta-sitosterol can benefit our overall heath in two ways.
First it can help lower our cholesterol. With heart disease a major problem keeping cholesterol levels
under control should be a priority. It has also shown positive results in treating BPH (enlarged
prostate). This is a very common problem for many men as they age. It can relieve some of the more
common symptoms associated with this condition. With the population aging prostate problems will
certainly be on the rise.

Plant sterols were first described chemically in 1922. At that time it was discovered pumpkin seeds
contained a phytosterol called beta-sitosterol. It was not until 1950 that researchers found that
phytosterols play an important role in lowering cholesterol by blocking its absorption into the intestine.
Today margarine and cereal manufacturers fortify their products with beta-sitosterol as a natural way to
lower cholesterol. It can also be found in corn oil, pecans, wheat germ and rice bran. Numerous clinical
trials of beta-sitosterol have shown that it has no known side effects or toxicity.

There is a large amount of research that shows beta-sitosterol as being effective in lowering
cholesterol and an alternative to widely prescribed statin drugs. It is estimated that up to 10% of people
who are given statin drugs to lower cholesterol stop taking them due to the side effects, particularly
muscle pain which is one of the more common problems. This is good news for this population which
has, up until now, had limited alternatives.

Beta-sitosterol has been the most studied, most proven and most effective supplement found to lower
total as well as LDL cholesterol. These studies have been published in medical journals for over 50
years and the amazing part about it is that most people are unaware.

Researchers at McGill University, in Montreal, did a review of the literature on beta-sitosterol and the
metabolism of cholesterol. It can be found in (Can. J. Physiol. Pharmacology- 75, 1997, p. 217-27).
Their research consisted of 18 major studies that used sitosterols to lower cholesterol and triglycerides.
They concluded in their study that "addition to diet of phytosterols represents an effective means of
improving circulating lipid profiles to reduce risk of coronary heart disease."

There was another very interesting study done at The Center for Human Nutrition in France which can
be found in (Ann. Nutritional. Metabolism. 39, 1995, p. 291-5). In this study people that had normal

cholesterols levels were give beta-sitosterol to see if their levels of cholesterol could be lowered even
further. This study is rather unique because we often think that only people that have a particular
condition are included in these studies. The study showed that these people were able to lower levels
even further although they did not make any changes to their diets or exercise regimen. In fact, they
lowered the levels of cholesterol by a significant 10% in only a month. The researchers said "The
present results may be of great interest in the prevention of high cholesterol diet-associated risks,
especially in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Since beta-sitosterol was so effective for
people who didn't even need it, think what it will do for those people who do need to lower their blood

With the good news on the ability of Beta-sitosterol to reduce cholesterol there is another reason to
make sure you are getting enough in your diet or thru supplementation. It has shown very positive
results in the treatment of BPH (enlarged prostate).

As many as 50% of men over 40 have some prostate symptoms and that number can increase as high
as 95% depending on longevity. Some of the early symptoms of prostate disease are:

* Blood in Urine * Impotency * Urgent or frequent urination * Burning feeling during urination * Painful

These symptoms described above can also be associated with more serious prostate disease, such as
prostate cancer, but most of the time it turns out to be an enlarged prostate. Needless to say, if you are
experiencing any of the above symptoms you should consult with your doctor.

BPH, for many years was treated with surgery. While this had positive results for most men undergoing
it, it was not without its complications. Anywhere from 2-10% undergoing this treatment found that they
needed to repeat it within 5 years. Another common treatment has been with prescription drugs, but
many found that these come with a host of side effects. Recently patients have reported positive
results from using Beta-sitosterol. In ancient times many used foods, berries and seeds containing
Beta-sitosterol to treat men with urological and prostate problems. It is not until centuries later that
scientific study identified Beta-sitosterol as the active ingredient responsible for this.

                                                   The Health Benefit of Pecans
                                                          By Danny Fox

All nuts have their own health benefits. So do pecans. The pecan nut is not only rich and tasty but the
package of health benefits offered by these nuts is pretty good too. It is recommended that you eat
pecan nuts to make sure that your diet is in line with the recommendations made by various
departments for healthy eating. The great part about pecans is that they are easily available and you
don’t have to search high and low for them.

Lowering Blood Pressure

 No nuts can help cure blood pressure. However, most nuts including pecans form an integral
component of the ‘Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension’ eating plan that has been developed by
the National Institutes of Health. It can lower your blood pressure and it will definitely suffuse your
dietary plan with the nutrients that are essential requirements for controlling hypertension. What’s more
you really don’t have to make any effort to eat pecans as they are delicious.

Breast Cancer Prevention

 Before we tell you about why pecans help in breast cancer prevention we must tell you that this area
of study is in its early stages but it cannot be denied that the pecan nut has essential elements that will
help in preventing breast cancer. Pecans are a rich source of oleic acids and laboratory tests that have
been conducted suggest that the oleic acid can suppress the activities of those gene cells that might
trigger incidences of breast cancer.

A Healthy Heart

 It is no secret that a bad heart is a result of excessive amounts of cholesterol in the world. Pecans sort
this problem out for you as they contain a compound that has the ability to lower cholesterol levels and
beta-sitosterol. The pecan nut can be included in your daily health diet and it would contribute heavily
to the lowering of your cholesterol levels, hence if you need a healthy heart, eat pecans.

Treating Your Prostate

 Researchers at Purdue University have come up with a great pecan health advantage. The pecan nut
has gamma-tocopherol, which is a type of Vitamin E and it is this vitamin that helps kill the cancerous
prostate cells and does not affect the health cells. However, the laboratory studies are continuing and
the laboratory result would now be confirmed only after test of this Vitamin E element on animals.
However, it is proven that the natural compounds found in pecans that lower cholesterol levels also
treat symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia which is a condition in which the prostate gland in men
becomes enlarged. This is a non-cancerous condition.

 At the end of the day, many dieticians and health practitioners advise people to at pecans as they are
a great substitute for meat products. They have high levels of proteins and also contain fats that are
cholesterol free. It is generally considered that one ounce of meat is equal to 10 pecan halves. So, the
next time that you think you want to eat meat; and you have health problems, try to go for a mouthful of
