Clinically proven to lower cholesterol, over 50 clinical trials, including long-term and high-dosage trials in different groups, have proven the efficacy and safety of Flora ProActiv which contains the optimum plant sterol amount when eaten daily as directed.

There is a continuous dose-response relationship between the intake of plant sterols and their effect on high cholesterol levels up to a dosage of 2 to 2.5g of plant sterols per day. Intakes above 3g per day are not recommended, as this provides little further benefit. The scientific evidence for plant sterol efficacy has been independently reviewed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

National and international guidelines for cholesterol lowering now recommend 2g of plant sterols per day, as part of a healthy diet, to reduce cholesterol.

Recommended amount

2 to 2.5g of plant sterols a day is the optimum amount for cholesterol lowering. You can get this amount from 3 portions of Flora ProActiv foods. One portion is about two teaspoons of spread or one glass of milk drink. A Flora ProActiv mini drink, however gives you the full daily amount in just one drink.

*Flora ProActiv contains plant sterols. Plant sterols have been shown to lower blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Consuming 1.5-2.4g of plant sterols per day can lower cholesterol by 7-10% in 2-3 weeks when consumed as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle with sufficient fruit and vegetables.
