In brief: Usually minimal
Plant sterols lower cholesterol in pts with mild elevations.
Despite its cholesterol lowering ability there has been no good data on reduction of cardiovascular events. Meta-analysis in european heart journal in 2012 suggest theres no effect. It competes with cholesterol absorption in the gut. Some pts may expeience some GI issues but are usually minimal.
