Which CholestOff Product is Right for You?

Nature Made has three formulations of CholestOff® to help lower cholesterol. Registered dietitian, Lynn Laboranti, describes the characteristics of each product to help you find the formulation that is right for you.

1) CholestOff® Original
Nature Made CholestOff® Original formula provides a proprietary blend of non-esterifed plant sterols and stanols (Reducol™) in caplets and has been clinically shown to lower cholesterol*, particularly LDL or “bad” cholesterol. It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol that is absorbed from the foods we eat and therefore, less cholesterol enters our bloodstream. When taken as directed, CholestOff® Original provides 1800 mg of plant sterols and stanols, which is in line with the National Cholesterol Education Program’s (NCEP) recommendation of 2 grams of plant sterols and stanols daily to help lower cholesterol. With just two caplets twice daily with meals, Nature Made CholestOff® Original can be part of your total approach to help support a healthy cholesterol level and a heart healthy lifestyle.*

2) CholestOff® Plus
Nature Made CholestOff® Plus formula provides the same proprietary blend of plant sterols and stanols (Reducol), in easy-to-swallow liquid softgels and is also clinically shown to lower cholesterol*.With just two softgels twice daily with meals, CholestOff® Plus provides 1800 mg of plant sterols and stanols, which is in line with the National Cholesterol Education Program’s (NCEP) recommendation of 2 grams of plant sterols and stanols daily to help lower cholesterol. Nature Made CholestOff® Plus is made with esterified sterols and stanols (Reducol) instead of free form sterols and stanols used in CholestOff® Original. These esterified sterols and stanols have been clinically studied and show cholesterol-lowering effects.* Additionally, Nature Made has conducted clinical trials examining the effects of CholestOff® Plus. Our study results show that consuming CholestOff® Plus, in addition to following the NCEP’s Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) diet, reduced LDL cholesterol levels.*

3) CholestOff® Complete
Nature Made CholestOff® Complete formula provides the proprietary blend of esterified plant sterols and stanols (Reducol), along with pantethine (Pantesin), a derivative of vitamin B5, in easy-to-swallow liquid softgels. With just three softgels twice daily with two meals, the blend of esterified plant sterols and stanols, along with 600 mg pantesin in CholestOff® Complete targets both cholesterol produced in the liver as well as cholesterol coming from the diet. Plant sterols and sterols work to reduce the absorption of dietary cholesterol, while pantethine (Pantesin) helps to lower the production of cholesterol in the liver. For individuals who struggle with high cholesterol levels due to their diet and also have a genetic predisposition or family history of high cholesterol, CholestOff®Complete may be a good option.* When taken as directed, Nature Made CholestOff® Complete provides 1800 mg of plant sterols and stanols, which is in line with the National Cholesterol Education Program’s (NCEP) recommendation of 2 grams of plant sterols and stanols daily to help lower cholesterol. Nature Made CholestOff® Complete can be part of your regimen to help support a healthy cholesterol level and a heart healthy lifestyle.*

*Products containing at least 400 mg per serving of plant sterols and stanols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily intake of at least 800 mg as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of Nature Made CholestOff ® supplies 900 mg of plant sterols and stanols for a daily intake of 1800 mg.
