sitosterol

22,23-dihydrostigmasterol

ß-sitosterol is a phytosterol (plant sterol) found in a wide variety of plants, including pecans, saw palmetto, avocados, pumpkin seed, rice bran, wheat germ, and soybeans. Chemically resembling cholesterol, phytosterols inhibit the absorption of cholesterol. Phytosterols have also been shown to have anticancer properties.
