[What is Phytosterol?]

Phytosterols are compounds found in plants that resemble cholesterol. The National Institutes of Heath report that there are over 200 different phytosterols, and the highest concentrations of phytosterols are found naturally in vegetable oils, beans and nuts. Their benefits are so recognized that foods are being fortified with phytosterols. At the supermarket, you may see orange juice or margarine advertising phytosterol contents. After reviewing the health benefits, you may want to add phytosterol-rich foods to your diet.



Cholesterol-Lowering Benefits

The most well-known, and scientifically proven, benefit of phytosterols is their ability to help lower cholesterol. A phytosterol is a plant compound that is similar to cholesterol. A study in the 2002 issue of “Annual Review of Nutrition” explains that phytosterols actually compete for absorption with cholesterol in the digestive tract. While they prevent the absorption of regular dietary cholesterol, they themselves are not easily absorbed, which leads to a total lower cholesterol level. The cholesterol-lowering benefit does not end with a good number on your blood work report. Having lower cholesterol leads to other benefits, such as a reduced risk for heart disease, stroke and heart attacks.

Cancer Protection Benefits

Phytosterols have also been found to help protect against the development of cancer. The July 2009 issue of the” European Journal of Clinical Nutrition” offers encouraging news in the fight against cancer. Researchers at the University of Manitoba in Canada report that there is evidence that phytosterols help prevent ovarian, breast, stomach and lung cancer. Phytosterols do this by preventing the production of cancer cells, stopping the growth and spread of cells that are already in existence and actually encouraging the death of cancer cells. Their high anti-oxidant levels are believed to be one way phytosterols help fight cancer. An anti-oxidant is a compound that fights free radical damage, which is negative effects on the body produced by cells that are unhealthy.

Skin Protection Benefits

A lesser known benefit of phytosterols involves skin care. One of the contributing factors in the aging of the skin is the breakdown and loss of collagen — the main component in connective skin tissue — and sun exposure is a major contributor to the problem. As the body ages, it is not able to produce collagen as it once did. The German medical journal “Der Hautarzt” reports a study in which various topical preparations were tested on skin for 10 days. The topical treatment that showed anti-aging benefits to the skin was the one that contained phytosterols and other natural fats. It is reported that phytosterols not only stopped the slow-down of collagen production that can be caused by the sun, it actually encouraged new collagen production.

  • 10 Health Benefits Of Artichoke –

    Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus) is one of the world’s oldest vegetable prepared as food and used in herbal medicine.

    Artichoke is a perennial herb, native to southern Europe and widely cultivated in the Mediterranean regions and central Europe. Artichoke is used to treat various medical conditions and has the following health benefits.

    1. Rich in antioxidants

    Artichokes are high in nutrients with antioxidant benefits that help with everything from preventing cancer to boosting your immune system. A new study ranked this vegetable as even higher than red wine, blueberries, and dark chocolate, and as having the most antioxidants per serving, and they are number 7 of 20 on the USDA’s top 20 high antioxidant foods list.

    2. High in fiber

    Artichoke wears the crown for highest amount of natural fiber, more than any vegetable and over most grains. Many people are surprised when they hear that 120 g. of artichoke contains even 10 g. of fiber, or nearly half of your daily needs. Hail to the fiber king!

    3. Liver function

    Your liver produces bile to eliminate dangerous toxins and digestive fats. Artichokes help with this process, boosting bile as a result of the phytonutrient cynarin, which is found in this vegetable. They are also rich in natural flavonoid silymarin which exerts anti-inflammatory effects in the liver and hinders tumor formation.

    4. Boosts brain health

    Because they are a good source of vitamin K, which helps to keep your brain health by reducing damage to neurons in that organ, artichokes may help patients with Alzheimer’s disease. And even more, they are known to act as a vasodilator, which means that the food has properties that expand blood vessels, and so letting more oxygen reach the brain. When there is more oxygen in your brain, improved cognitive abilities can result.

    5. Lowers cholesterol

    Artichokes have shown again that they are effective at lowering cholesterol. A recent study has found that the antioxidants in artichoke leaf extract lowered patient cholesterol levels from 4.2% – 18.5%.

    6. Improved digestion

    The cynarin and fiber in artichokes make them a great choice in maintaining a healthy digestive system. The bile-producing cynarin can reduce bloating and other digestive pain. Fiber keeps the digestive system moving and helps break down food. Inulin, one of the major sources of fiber in this vegetable, is a prebiotic. Prebiotics increase the amount of probiotic bacteria in your stomach.

    7. Lowers blood pressure

    Artichokes are rich in potassium. Sodium raises your blood pressure. Potassium replaces electrolytes and offsets the negative effects of sodium. Thus, artichokes lower blood pressure!

    8. Builds strong bones

    Artichokes are high in vitamin K, containing 12% of your DRI, and play very important role in ongoing bone health. They also high in vitamin C, which is involved in the collagen formation. Collagen is, among other things, essential for bone health.

    9. Low calorie

    They are very low in calories and fat, but high in fiber which makes you feel full, so artichokes make a great snack. In addition, the time needed for eating each individual artichoke leaf will psychologically make you feel like you had a large snack.

    10. Fights damaging free radicals

    So powerful is the vitamin C content in artichokes that the (ORAC) Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity system has given this food a score nine times higher than other antioxidant-rich foods. ORAC values foods based on their antioxidant capacity. Foods rich in antioxidants are known to fight off free radicals that damage cells and wreak havoc on the body.
