The average human diet includes about 167-437 mg of phytosterols per day (Ostlund 2002). Phytosterols, because of their similar structure to cholesterol, compete with cholesterol absorption mechanisms in the intestine.
The amounts of phytosterols present in the diet, however, are not usually sufficient to affect blood levels of cholesterol. Dietary intakes of phytosterols need to be higher to support healthy cholesterol levels.
