*Vitamin B1 contributes to the normal function of the heart.
Plant stanol ester has been shown to lower cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. A daily intake of 1.5-2.4g plant stanols lowers cholesterol by 7-10% in 2-3 weeks. Each bottle contains 2g so that's why one bottle a day gives the effect when consumed with a main meal and as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, including your '5 a day'. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 1.5-3g plant stanols.

Yummy creamy morning fix
Love.this creamy little boost of fruity freshness of kick off my day. Also like the fact there's no sugar. The sweetener is perfectly acceptable.
bring back the strawberry flavour!
Why has Ocado stopped selling the strawberry flavour? Its the only one we like and it hasnt been in stock for months. Anther trip to Morrisons beckons which sort of cancels out the convenience of online shopping. Are you listening Ocado? Bring back the strawberry...please?
Plenty sweet enough
This tastes pleasant and seemed plenty sweet enough for me - although I dont take sugar in my tea. Ill definitely be buying again. An easy way to lower your cholesterol.
No sugar - yuck!
The no sugar version tastes unpleasantly chalky - would rather have the extra calories thanks!!
I'm delighted that the sugar content has been lowered in the raspberry flavour. It tastes better too. I hope that all the other flavours will follow suit.
Lovely flavour and it works!
I had been using the benecol light variety and I've tried other flavours, but I like this one best. Also the fat content is only 0.1g per 100ml higher than the light version. Most importantly, my blood tests have shown than taking benecol daily reduces your cholesterol!
