Serum concentrations and metabolism of cholesterol were studied in vegetarians basally and during a dietary cholesterol load. Cholesterol absorption efficiency was normal and synthesis was slightly enhanced, even though serum cholesterol precursors were not increased. The serum concentrations of total and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol were decreased proportionally to the reduced intake and absolute absorption of cholesterol. Fecal plant sterols were negatively correlated with the… CONTINUE READING
