DESCRIPTION: Are there diminishing returns associated with other phytonutrients? See Maxing Out on Antioxidants (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/maxin...) and Kiwifruit and DNA Repair (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/kiwif...). The "enterocyte trash recovery bins" of which I speak are an analogy I introduced in How Fiber Lowers Cholesterol (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-f...), the second of a loose five-part series on the cholesterol-lowering effects of nuts and seeds (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-...). Yesterday's video-of-the-day, How Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-p...), offered a bit of phytosterol background and tomorrow's video-of-the-day Optimal Phytosterol Source (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optim...) explains why whole food sources like nuts and seeds are superior to phytosterol-fortified foods and supplements. Which other foods lower cholesterol levels? See New Cholesterol Fighters (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/new-c...). Why should one worry about cholesterol in the first place? See Blocking the First Step of Heart Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/block...), Cholesterol and Lower Back Pain (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chole...), Cholesterol and Female Sexual Dysfunction (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chole...), and Heart Attacks and Cholesterol: Purely a Question of Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/heart...) for a few of the five dozen videos I have on the topic (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/chol...). Then, of course, there are a thousand other topics (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/)—en...

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optim... and he'll try to answer it!
