At Avonmore we know that managing your cholesterol isn’t easy. It can be difficult to eat the right things and make the right lifestyle choices. That’s why we have introduced Avonmore Heart Active Milk with added plant sterols which have been proven to reduce cholesterol.
Plant sterols work by partly blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, lowering cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease.
Consuming just 2-3 glasses of Avonmore Heart Active every day for 2-3 weeks can help reduce cholesterol by 7%-10%.
Did you know, to get the full benefit of plant sterols you have to consume the recommended amount* every day? That’s why Avonmore Heart Active is ideal. It has all the great taste of our Low Fat Milk, and can be used in the exact same way as your current milk: as a drink, in cereal and in tea or coffee. So it’s the easy and convenient way to get your plant sterol each day.
The benefits of plant sterols are obtained with a recommended daily intake of 1.5 to 2.4g of plant sterols.
A 250ml glass will provide you with:
- 38% your RI of Calcium,
- 40% of your RI for Vitamin B12,
- 50% of your RI for Vitamin D
