Yes if your Cholesterol is marginally high it works. I you have very high degree of cholesterol, you can not depend only on this and you to take some Statin group medicine like - Atorvastatin, Cerivastatin, Fluvastatin, Lovastatin, Mevastatin, Pitavastatin, Pravastatin, Rosuvastatin, or Simvastatin, which are of lipid-lowering drugs that reduce serum cholesterol levels by inhibiting a key enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of cholesterol. Benecol is a food product line marketed by McNeil Nutritionals intended to reduce dietary cholesterol. The active ingredients in Benecol products are plant stanol esters, added to base products including margarine-like spreads and yoghurt. Because of regulatory issues, different products are available in different countries; for example, in the United States, only the spreads, and in Turkey, Kalbim Benecol margarine are available.-
