One Shot That’s Worth Giving A Shot: Promise Activ SuperShot

Functional foods take on cholesterol...


Unilever has 150 clinical studies showing that two grams of plant sterols a day can lead to a 15% reduction in cholesterol backing up its new Promise Activ SuperShot Yogurt. Plant sterols are found in many fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and vegetable. These three-ounce yogurt-based drinks aim to give you a daily shot of 70 calories and omega-3s and 2 grams of plant sterols, which could lower your cholesterol by about 10% (if you have one per day).

The SuperShots should hit grocery stores this June (retailing for about $3.99 per four-pack), so keep an eye out. I can't wait to try them!

Woohoo! I was just told my cholesterol is too high about 2 days ago (I'm 21). I think it runs in my family. And I'm not really sure what to do because I thought my diet was fairly healthy. So thanks for the tip!

These look and sound pretty good. I don't need to bring my cholesterol down, but they sound healthy - it's worth a shot.

Juggling the words 'shot' and 'yogurt' creep me out.
