New Roots Herbal Heart Smart Organic Safflower Oil
Heart Smart Safflower Oil blends the unique beneficial fatty acids of safflower oil with the cholesterol-lowering benefits of 375 mg of plant sterols per tablespoon.
Research has proven that 2 g of plant sterols per day can reduce harmful (LDL) cholesterol up to 20%. Their side effect–free action is simple: they block intestinal absorption of harmful LDL cholesterol.* Nonvegetarians consume approximately 300 mg of plant sterols per day, while vegetarians hover around 600 mg daily. This is much less than the recommended 2 g per day, which is confirmed by Dr. Peter Jones, an international pioneer in lipid nutrition and functional foods, who states: “Even though plant sterols can be and are eaten as part of a healthy diet, it’s challenging for Canadians to consume enough plant sterols to lower their cholesterol.”
Heart Smart Safflower Oil’s clean, subtle flavour and high smoke point is great for high-temperature stir-fries, but also vinaigrettes and smoothies, or it can simply be taken by the spoonful.
Directions of Use: Shake well. Adults: Take 3 tablespoons daily with food or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
