Is beta sitosterol used to UTI?


Answer by  soothsayer (500)

Beta-sitosterol is a phytoextract which helps in lowering cholesterol levels. Like Saw palmetto[berry extract] it's found to be useful for BPH[prostatic hyperplasia] but not for UTI.

No. Beta sitosterol is an over the counter substance that is used by some to control their cholesterol. It works to keep a normal cholesterol normal. It has been used for high cholesterol also. It has been used in the UK for BPH (enlarged prostate). Use with prostate and other cancers have shown no true helpfulness.

The phytosterol bet sitosterol is usually used to treat problems related to cholesterol. It may also be used in the treatment of some cancers, though this treatment occurs only in Europe. Its use has also been explored in the treatment of chronic inflammation. It may therefore have some ability to control chronic UTIs.

Beta sitosterol is not used to treat urinary tract infections. Beta sitosterol has several uses but is most commonly used to treat high cholesterol, by blocking it's absorbtion. It is also used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia which is an enlarging of the prostate. This enlarging can cause some problems with the urinary tract, but not an infection.
