The cholesterol-lowering effect of phytosterols has been extensively studied, and consumption of phytosterols is among the recommendations to lower LDL-cholesterol concentrations. Due to their structural similarity with cholesterol, phytosterols may undergo oxidative processes comparable to those involved in cholesterol oxidation. Consumption of phytosterols could therefore lead to increased systemic concentrations of oxidized phytosterols (oxyphytosterols) via increased dietary intake or in… CONTINUE READING
