Your heart is amazing. And Becel – known in parts of the world as Flora, Promise or Fruit D’Or – is developed to help your heart stay healthy.
The saturated fats in ordinary butter can contribute towards high cholesterol – in turn causing fatty deposits to build up in arteries, making it harder for your heart to pump blood around your body.
But our Becel pro∙activ range of spreads, yogurts and drinks is clinically proven to reduce the absorption of cholesterol.
The easy way to reduce your cholesterol
Becel pro∙activ contains concentrated amounts of plant sterols, which actively remove cholesterol from the body by partly blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the gut.
These plant sterols naturally occur in small quantities in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, grain products, fruit and vegetables, but you’d need to eat 150 apples, 210 carrots or 425 tomatoes to get the same amount as you’ll find in just one pro.activ mini drink, or three portions of pro.activ spread.
Consuming Becel pro•activ spread, milk drink or yoghurt can provide around 2g of plant sterols per day. Clinical studies show that, for those who follow a healthy diet, this level of plant sterols can reduce LDL – bad – cholesterol by about 10-15% within a few weeks.
