I have read that they work, but I have also read reports that said you need to eat a lot of it for it to work. I haven't seen any 'down-side' other than they are generally more expensive.

Most people can improve their cholesterol by reducing alcohol consumption; stopping smoking; reducing processed foods; eating a healthy balanced diet and include healthy oils such as fish, which can be gotten from salmon, tuna, sardines, etc. Weight-loss can improve this, too.

No experience, because they are so expensive and hard to find, but so many reliable sites suggest using them I think they must help. But best to do some research. I think there have been suggestions that the plant sterols can cause reproductive problems.

Does anyone have any experience with Cholesterol-lowering spreads (margarine-like)?
Just wondering if their claims are true or what the "down-side" might be.
