To examine how variable sitostanol (SI) levels in phytosterol-supplemented diets influence plasma and hepatic lipid concentrations, fifty hamsters were divided into five groups and fed semipurified diets containing 0.25% (w/w) cholesterol for 45 days ad libitum. Four groups were fed this diet with 1% (w/w) phytosterol mixtures which contained 0.01% (w/w) SI derived from soybean, 0.2% (w/w) SI derived from tall oil, 0.2% (w/w) synthetic SI mixture (SIM) and 1% (w/w) pure SI, respectively.

Dietary sitostanol reciprocally influences cholesterol absorption and biosynthesis in hamsters and rabbits.
TLDR
Dietary SI exhibited a dose-dependent action in inhibiting cholesterol absorption while increasing cholesterol excretion and upregulating cholesterogenesis in hamsters resulting in lower circulating lipid levels.
The hypocholesterolaemic effects of sitostanol in the guinea pig are in part related to changes in hepatic lipids and lipoprotein composition.
TLDR
The results suggest that SI might have its hypocholesterolaemic effect by reducing cholesterol absorption, which results in lower concentration of cholesterol in liver, which might possibly alter hepatic cholesterol metabolism and affect lipoprotein concentration and composition.
Cholesterol-lowering efficacy of a sitostanol-containing phytosterol mixture with a prudent diet in hyperlipidemic men.
TLDR
Addition of blended phytosterols to a prudent North American diet improved plasma LDL-cholesterol concentrations by mechanisms that did not result in significant changes in endogenous cholesterol synthesis in hypercholesterolemic men.
Effects of policosanols and phytosterols on lipid levels and cholesterol biosynthesis in hamsters
TLDR
Results suggest that, although phytosterols reduce T-C and HDL-C levels, policosanols have no significant favorable effect in changing lipid levels in hamsters.
Plant stanol ascorbate esters reduce body weight gain through decreased energy absorption in hamsters
TLDR
Stanol-ascorbate decreases body weight gain in hamster, likely due to lower energy absorption at the intestinal level, and in addition to its previously observed powerful cholesterol-lowering effect, DAPP has a hypotriglyceridemic function in hamsters.
Cholesterol-lowering effect of phytosterol-containing lactic-fermented milk powder in hamsters
TLDR
Results suggest that PSFMP could be used as a potential cholesterol-lowering ingredient in the management of hypercholesterolemia, and may be attributed to its ability to enhance cholesterol excretion.
Injected phytosterols/stanols suppress plasma cholesterol levels in hamsters.
TLDR
It is concluded that low doses of subcutaneously administered plant sterols reduce circulating cholesterol levels through mechanisms other than inhibiting intestinal cholesterol absorption.
Effects of Phytosterol Esters on Serum Lipids and Fecal Steroids Excretion in Hamsters
We investigated the effects of phytosterol esters on serum lipids and fecal steroids excretion. Golden Syrian Hamsters were fed diets containing 100 g of control oil, free phytosterol (FPS) oil or
Effects of a water-soluble phytostanol ester on plasma cholesterol levels and red blood cell fragility in hamsters
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DAPP lowers cholesterol more efficiently than free stanols, without an adverse effect on erythrocyte fragility in hamsters.
Beneficial effects of plant sterols/stanols-containing milk powder on lipid metabolism in hamsters
TLDR
At the highest feeding dose of PSMP, hamsters had the highest body weight gain and the lowest plasma and liver lipid contents, and PSMP showed significant effects on lowering the concentrations of plasma total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol.

Enhanced efficacy of sitostanol-containing versus sitostanol-free phytosterol mixtures in altering lipoprotein cholesterol levels and synthesis in rats.
TLDR
The absence of sitostanol in plasma and the increase in cholesterol synthesis induced by dietary sitstanol mixtures in addition to elevation of plasma campesterol and beta-sitosterol by sittingostanol orSitostanol-free mixtures suggest that sitost ethanol mixtures effectively modify circulating lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations at the level of the intestine, rather than internally at thelevel of cholesterogenesis.
Reduction of serum cholesterol with sitostanol-ester margarine in a mildly hypercholesterolemic population.
BACKGROUND Dietary plant sterols, especially sitostanol, reduce serum cholesterol by inhibiting cholesterol absorption. Soluble sitostanol may be more effective than a less soluble preparation. We
Sitostanol ester margarine in dietary treatment of children with familial hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
Partial replacement of normal dietary fat consumption by sitostanol ester margarine appears to be an effective and safe hypocholesterolemic treatment in children with FH.
Effect of full-fat or defatted rice bran on serum cholesterol
TLDR
FFRB appears to increase HDL and to lower LDL in chicks, but does not always affect TC, whereas DFRB may increase all three serum lipid components.
Effects of dietary cholesterol and phytosterol overload on Wistar rat plasma lipids.
TLDR
Low doses of phytosterols are sufficient to significantly decrease a plasma cholesterol enhancement induced by a dietary cholesterol overload, with the highest dose being most efficient.

TLDR
In conclusion, addition to diet of the phytosterol sitostanol represents an effective means of improving circulating lipid profiles to reduce risk of coronary heart disease.

TLDR
Although previous reports have suggested that low-dose sitostanol therapy is an effective means of reducing LDL-cholesterol concentrations, its effectiveness may be attenuated when the diet is low in cholesterol.
Effect of low-dose sitostanol on serum cholesterol in patients with hypercholesterolemia.
TLDR
It is suggested that low-dose sitostanol might be a useful hypolipidemic agent for the treatment of mild hypercholesterolemia.
Effects of unsaturated and saturated dietary plant sterols on their serum contents.
TLDR
Concentrations of unsaturated plant sterols in serum reflect their dietary intakes, saturated Plant sterols are virtually not absorbed, plant sterol-induced reduction of sterol absorption may be positively related to absorption efficiency of sterols.
Serum plant sterols and their relation to cholesterol absorption.
TLDR
The findings suggest that, in general, serum levels of noncholesterol sterols are effectively determined by the absorption which in turn is proportionate to the fractional absorption of cholesterol.
