Following an eight-week MonaVie Pulse study of 35 healthy adults with elevated cholesterol levels, participants showed a significant reduction in low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, or "bad" cholesterol. The study concluded that consuming two servings of MonaVie Pulse daily, when taken with food, could help lower overall LDL cholesterol.
** This study was conducted in a relatively small number of healthy adults. Further studies with larger sample sizes are needed before these results can be generalized to the population at large.

Does MonaVie Pulse contain artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, or added sugar?

What are plant sterols?
Many plants include some substance known as plant sterols, phytochemical compounds found in the fatty tissues of plants. Wheat germ, sesame oil, wheat bran, and Brussels sprouts are rich in plant sterols. When plant sterols are consumed, they compete with cholesterol for absorption in the body. However, it is difficult to consume enough of these foods on a daily basis to derive enough plant sterols to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
How do plant sterols work?
From your body's point of view, plant sterols look a lot like cholesterol. Studies suggest that as you eat a meal with sufficient amounts of plant sterols, the body absorbs less cholesterol because plant sterols actually compete with cholesterol for absorption in the body.
How long do I need to consume MonaVie Pulse before changes are seen?
Studies have been conducted on the plant sterols contained in MonaVie Pulse. In these studies, cholesterol-lowering benefits were detected after consuming 0.8 grams of plant sterols daily for 4 weeks or more.
What is the FDA plant sterol ingredient claim?
Foods containing at least 0.4 g per serving of plant sterols taken twice a day with meals for a total daily intake of 0.8 g, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Two servings (four ounces) of MonaVie Pulse contain 0.8 g of plant sterols.
Are plant sterols safe?
Numerous human and toxicological studies conducted with plant sterols have shown no adverse effects in most populations. However, if you have a specific concern, health condition, or question regarding the consumption of plant sterols, we recommend you consult with your physician prior to consuming MonaVie Pulse.
Have any clinical trials been done with plant sterols?
Plant sterols (phytosterols) have been clinically evaluated in many different populations under different circumstances over the past 50 years. In a number of studies, plant sterols have demonstrated the ability to improve cholesterol levels in humans.
The health benefits of phytosterols have been well established, and public health authorities, such as the U.S. National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), are beginning to include phytosterols as part of their dietary recommendations (NCEP, 2001).
Do governments or professional health associations recommend consuming plant sterols?
In the U.S., the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) suggests the use of plant sterols in conjunction with other lifestyle changes produces positive effects on cholesterol levels achieved through dietary means. (The NCEP is a branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health.)
Why should I be concerned about my cholesterol?
According to the American Heart Association, elevated blood cholesterol is a major risk factor in cardiovascular health. Nearly 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol (>200 mg/dL) and, oftentimes, they don't even know it. Taking action now to maintain healthy cholesterol levels will help prevent such problems from arising.
