look for pills that contain sterol or food with this substance they say that sterols helped lower total cholesterol and contributed to a nearly 10 percent reduction in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the so-called "bad" cholesterol. yet you should see a doctor before consuming sterol cuzz its not good for some type of people.
