95% of people from Cobh, who took part in the Flora ProActiv challenge, reduced their cholesterol in just three weeks*. Now you can do it too

8 out of 10 Irish adults aged 45+ have raised cholesterol, but many of them are not aware of their cholesterol level or its potential impact on their health*.

To tackle one of the biggest health issues facing Ireland, the residents of Cobh, a small coastal community in Co. Cork, took up the Flora ProActiv cholesterol-lowering challenge; a three-week healthy eating and activity programme to raise awareness and inspire people to make easy lifestyle changes

The results showed that 95% of participants lowered their cholesterol in just three weeks*. If they can, you can! The good news is that it is relatively simple to lower your cholesterol. And to help you do this we have a Cholesterol Lowering Starter Kit and a motivational email programme, both designed to help you make the changes you need to succeed.

You can also download the handbook that the residents of Cobh followed during their 3 week challenge.

*95% of 44 participants who completed the challenge. 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.
