WHY THIS MIX:
According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), increasing your daily intake of phytosterols from the average intake of 150 -400mg to 1.5 or 2.4 grams a day can lead to a reduction of ldl-cholesterol as significant as 7 to 10.5%. And there is more good news – the results of this effect can be seen within 2 – 3 weeks of changing your diet. Clinical trials conducted by the FDA confirmed this hypothesis and also proved that increasing your phytosterol intake reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease. With 94 – 265mg per 100g, pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of phytosterol.
