Benefits of Plant Stanols
Benecol Smart Chews are a great-tasting snack fortified with plant stanol esters.

Benecol Smart Chews may lower LDL-cholesterol, the form of cholesterol linked with heart disease, not HDL-cholesterol, the "good" form of cholesterol. A serving, two chews, contains only 60 calories.
