New Roots Sterols & Sterolins. New Roots Sterols & Sterolins is a blend of plant sterols. Sterols are alcohols that are commonly found in plants. Though they are common, their abilities are quite uncommon. Beta-sitosterols, the main sterols found in Sterols & Sterolins inhibit tumors, reduce cholesterol, treat atherosclerosis and ulcers and modulate the immune system: an amazing list of powers for a single component of a plant.
Sterols and beta-sitosterols are able to help both under and over active immune systems because it is not an immune stimulator but an immune modulator: it corrects and balances the immune system, no matter which way it needs to be adjusted. And it is able to be an immune modulator because it contains betasitosterols. The combination of sterols and beta-sitosterols is also vital because, although sterols and beta-sitosterols both work on their own, they work far better together. They are also absorbed much more when together, but very poorly when found alone. New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins contain betasitosterols, the key component used and studied, but also other important plant sterols; campesterol, stigmasterol and delta-5-avenasterol. Of the 54 mg dose of sterols, 35mg, or 65% of the content, is guaranteed to be beta-sitosterols. Conducted clinical studies stated, in the International Journal of Immunopharmacology in 1996, that beta sitosterols, not just sterols were used. Other companies claim only sterols. This is why New Roots Herbal claims the dose of 35mg beta-sitosterols per capsule. Because 65% of New Roots' sterols are beta-sitosterols, it takes 54mg of sterols to arrive at the 35mg dose of beta-sitosterols claim. This in turn makes New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins 150% stronger than other competing brands. Arabino-oligosaccharides (A.O.S.) are a well known source of dietary fibre that has therapeutic benefits as a prebiotic and as a modulator of the immune system. Its particular interest is as a potential adjunctive supplement in the treatment of chronic diseases, including cancer. Arabino-oligosaccharides are polysaccharides found in the cell walls of a wide variety of edible and non-edible woody plants. Polysaccharides are often found in many medicinal herbs used for immune enhancement, including Echinacea and Astragalus.

Something for Everyone:
Everyone can use New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins.Not only because it is safe, but because it benefits everyone. And you don't have to have an over or under active immune system.We can all benefit from supplementing with New Roots' Sterols and Sterolins. Why? Two reasons. Because North Americans tend to eat too much meat and not enough of the fruits, vegetables and seeds in which betasitosterols are naturally found, and because food processing, refining, freezing and cooking remove or destroy the sterols that are in the food we eat. So healthy people too can benefit from the healing and preventive powers of New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins.
Beta-sitosterols are well known to people who use herbs as a major component of the prostate healing herbs pygeum and nettles. Saw palmetto, the most famous prostate herb of all, contains both beta-sitosterols and their sterolins. Several studies have also proven betasitosterols to be helpful, not only for prostate cancer, but also for benign prostate hyperplasia, the enlargement of the prostate that affects so many men.
One of the biggest health problems produced by our modern diet is elevated cholesterol, and one of the bestestablished uses of plant sterols is in the treatment of cholesterol problems. Recently, sixteen studies involving 590 people with high cholesterol levels have shown that sterols from plants can reduce total cholesterol by an average of 10% and LDL cholesterol (the one that does the harm) by 13%. Beta-sitosterols also fight atherosclerosis (atherosclerotic plaque on artery walls). New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins can play an important role in heart health programs.
Sterols & Sterolins also play an important role in the prevention and treatment of the other major killers of our day. A number of studies have shown it to be an excellent supplement for the immune system. Studies have shown it to boost a number of immune system components, including T-cells, interleukin-2, gamma interferon and natural killer cells.
These effects on the immune system make New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins an exciting and promising new supplement for AIDS. An important marker for AIDS is the CD4 count. CD4 is an important white blood cell called a helper lymphocyte that drops in AIDS patients. In a recent study of 80 people with AIDS, while the control group experienced the typical drop in CD4 counts over time, the group taking betasitosterols had no significant drop in CD4 counts over a 27 month period (AIDS Bulletin 1997).
Not only can people with heart disease and AIDS benefit from taking New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins, but many studies have also shown sterols and beta-sitosterols to be a promising weapon against cancer. One study found that beta-sitosterol, the main sterol in plant sterols was able to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells grown in culture by 80% after five days. It also increased the cancer cells' tendency to self-destruct in a way that would not damage the healthy cells around it, unlike many conventional ways of killing cancer cells (Int J Mol Med 2000). Another study looked at people with and without lung cancer and found that those who ate the most plant sterols in their diet had a 50% less chance of getting lung cancer than those who ate the least (Lung Cancer 1998). Still other studies have suggested that plant sterols can protect against colon and prostate cancer. One study found beta-sitosterol could reduce the growth of prostate cancer cells cultured in a laboratory and increased their tendency to safely self-destruct (Nutr-Cancer 1998).
Athletes and Exercise:
Another group of people who will benefit from supplementing with New Roots' Sterols & Sterolins are athletes and exercisers who train intensely. This group of people is well known to suffer from immune suppression because of the intensity of the exercise. A very interesting double-blind study of healthy marathon runners looked at the ability of betasitosterols to counteract the immune suppression of heavy exercise (Int J Sports Med 1999). Amazingly, while several measures of immunity dropped significantly in the placebo group, there was absolutely no drop in the group receiving the sterols and sterolins. As in the AIDS research, the betasitosterols showed the ability to raise the important CD3 and CD4 immunity cells while they dropped in the placebo group. Also, while inflammation and stress went up in the athletes on a placebo, they went down in the marathoners on sterols and sterolins.
What`s more, beta-sitosterols are incredibly safe. Though many of the exciting properties of this amazing supplement are newly discovered and cutting edge, the beta-sitosterols are natural supplements that have been used for a long time for benign prostate hyperplasia and high cholesterol. Completely safe, they are non-toxic, possess no known drug interactions and can even be used by pregnant and nursing women. New Roots Herbals Sterols & Sterolins are 100% guaranteed non G.M.O. (non genetically modified), in a base of organic brown rice flour, in 100% vegetarian and non G.M.O. capsules.
