Sterinol: Frequently Asked Questions

  [ 47 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • November 12, 2000

Following are answers to some of the questions frequently asked about Moducare’s® Sterinol, the world's first sterol and sterolin supplement.

What are sterols and sterolins?

Sterol is a plant fat found in all plant-based foods. Sterolin is its glucoside, a molecular structure joined to the sterol. Sterolin is easily destroyed, and without it, the sterol does not have the same immune-enhancing benefits. Moducare’s® Sterinol uses a proprietary process to preserve the ideal combination of sterols and sterolins.

Is there any research behind this product?

Research on sterols has been underway since the 1920s, and Professor Bouic has been researching the exact combination of sterols and sterolins found in Moducare’s® Sterinol for over a decade. There has been extensive testing and clinical trials, including placebo controlled, double blind studies. The work of Professor Bouic and others has been published in prestigious, peer-reviewed international journals.

Is Moducare’s® Sterinol safe? Are there side effects?

Yes it is safe. A long-term safety study involving 25,000 humans showed no side effects. In addition, standard toxicity studies, pre-clinical testing and clinical observations confirm Moducare®'s Sterinol safety.

Any contraindications or drug interactions?

There are no known drug interactions and the only contraindication is that anyone with an organ (or other foreign tissue) transplant should NOT take Sterinol, since an optimally functioning immune system could reject the transplant.

What about allergic reactions?

An allergic reaction is extremely unlikely, as Moducare’s® Sterinol contains no artificial coloring, preservatives, sweeteners or salicylates. It also contains no sugar, acacia, barley, wheat, corn, millet, dairy, lactose, yeast, gluten or other common allergens.

Are sterols the same as steroids?

No. The words sound similar but that is all. Moducare’s® Sterinol contains only sterols and sterolins, no steroids. Sterinol has none of the negative effects or health risks associated with steroids.

Will these plant fats make me gain weight?

No. A capsule contains less than 1 calorie, which comes from the rice flour base. Plant fats, unlike animal fats, are not associated with weight gain.

Is this an immune "booster" like echinacea?

The key difference between echinacea and Moducare’s® Sterinol is that echinacea only stimulates the immune system, while Sterinol balances it. Echinacea is not recommended for prolonged use, and is definitely not safe for people with autoimmune conditions. Moducare’s® Sterinol allows the immune system to regulate itself: "upregulating" or boosting an underactive response and "downregulating" an overactive one. Moducare’s® Sterinol is completely safe for long term use and for those with autoimmune conditions.

How should I take Sterinol?

Adults: 3 capsules daily, usually one in the morning, one midday, and one in the evening, taken on an empty stomach for maximum absorption. Children: 1 capsule per day for children under 5; 2 per day for children between 5 and 12; and children over 12 can take the adult dose. When first starting to supplement with Moducare®, it is often a good idea to double the daily requirement for the first week or so. This allows the body to build up its reserves as quickly as possible.

Note: Taking 3 capsules at once is not as effective as spacing them out over the day, as 3 are more than the body can absorb at one time. Instead the body will flush out the excess, then run out before the next day, creating an erratic supply — first too much and then not enough.

Do I have to take it on an empty stomach?

Sterinol should be taken 1 hour before or 2-3 hours after a meal for maximum absorption. However it can be taken with certain foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. The important thing is not to take it with cholesterol (animal fat), including all meat, dairy, eggs, seafood, etc. Cholesterol has a very similar molecular structure and the two compounds "compete" for absorption. You can also take Sterinol with beverages, as long as they contain no cholesterol.

Can I take too much?

No. It is impossible to overdose on Sterinol. The body has a limited capacity to absorb these plant fats, and any excess is excreted harmlessly in the stools.
