Promise activ SuperShotsPromise activ SuperShots is the first fruit and yogurt mini-drink with added natural plant sterols, ingredients clinically proven to help actively lower cholesterol (as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol). A serving of Promise activ provides 2.0 grams of plant sterols (a total daily intake of at least 0.8 grams of plant sterols, as part of a low saturated fat, low trans fat and low cholesterol diet, may help reduce the risk of heart disease).

I wouldn't buy Promise activ for any other reason than to help reduce your cholesterol (and I am a believer in the effects of plant sterols), because the bottles are so small - this really is like a "shot." I bought a 4 pack of the strawberry flavor of and was pleasantly surprised with the taste. It is slightly tangy and not too sweet, with a smooth, milky consistency (not very thick), although there is not much trace of strawberry flavor in this.

One 3 ounce Promise activ SuperShot only has 70 calories, 3.5 grams of total fat (from the plant sterols), no saturated or trans fat, no cholesterol, 1 gram of protein and 8 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 8 grams of sugars (less than 1 gram of fiber). The sweeteners are sugar and sucralose (Splenda).

I purchased a 4 pack for $3.18, which I consider a little pricey BUT if these work to help you lower cholesterol, is it too expensive? Check out this short, but excellent review from MacGuyver, whose cholesterol went down 8 Points 2 weeks after consuming Promise activ 2x daily. I'm also a big fan of Minute Maid Heartwise Orange Juice which has 1 gram of plant sterols per serving (read the review).
