What is Corn silk extract (beta Sitosterol)?

Corn silk extract (beta Sitosterol) is extracted from the fresh stigma of corn. To assure optimal extraction of Corn Silk’s bioactive compounds, the silk is carefully hand-harvested and is then taken directly to our factory and promptly extracted while still fresh and succulent. Maize also known as corn, is a cereal grain first domesticated by indigenous peoples in southern Mexico about 10,000 years ago.The leafy stalk of the plant produces pollen inflorescences and separate ovuliferous inflorescences called ears that yield kernels or seeds, which are fruits.

What is Beta Sitosterol?

β-Sitosterol is one of several phytosterols with chemical structures similar to that of cholesterol. They are hydrophobic and soluble in alcohols.

Beta Sitosterol Powder reduces blood levels of cholesterol, and is sometimes used in treating hypercholesterolemia. It inhibits cholesterol absorption in the intestine. When the sterol is absorbed in the intestine, it is transported by lipoproteins and incorporated into the cellular membrane. Phytosterols and phytostanols both inhibit the uptake of dietary and biliary cholesterol, and reduce the levels of LDL and total serum cholesterol. Because the structure of corn silk extract β-sitosterol is similar to that of cholesterol, it takes the place of dietary and biliary cholesterol in micelles produced in the intestinal lumen. This reduces cholesterol absorption in the body.
