Natur-Leaf should be a mainstay in every household because sterols and sitosterolins are powerful factors in the immunological fight against sickness.there are a lot of seemingly healthy people who actually are rather sick.
Dr. Karl Pegel, Ph.D., whom many consider the foremost authority in the world on sterols/sterolins
While sterols and sterolins are not the answers to all ills, they certainly may be classified in the same category with vitamins C and E or Magnesium.

"Many of the patients that I see in my clinical practice suffer from problems with their immune systems. I am very satisfied with the results that I have seen in a wide variety of conditions. I invite other clinicians to learn about the benefits of Natur-Leaf.”
Dr. H.B. Assoc. Professor of Nutrition (New York)
"I would like to thank you for your excellent product, Natur-Leaf ®. I have personally been using it for 5 months with INCREDIBLE RESULTS. I have been sick with debilitating allergies and asthma for the past 7 years. . . I have been strongly recommending it to my fellow doctors in this area.”
Dr. L.H. (Colorado)
"Your plant sterol product, Natur-Leaf, has been OUTSTANDINGLY HELPFUL to me. It has increased my ability to fight off infections of all kinds. I do hope your business will prosper and expand. If I had to do without your product, I would be in very bad shape. Thanks so much for your work.
Dr. W.C. (New Jersey)
Since introduced in 1999, Natur-Leaf ® has become the worldwide leader in sterol/sitosterolin health supplements. "Sterols and sterolins consist of certain vegetable fats that wield extraordinary immunomodulatory effects on human organisms.”
Do not be confused with the imitation products that have been coming out on the market in the last couple of years (i.e. spreads, drinks, pills). Natur-Leaf ® not only has 80 mg of sterols per serving size and helps block excess cholesterol absorption due to the sterols, but more importantly it also provides you with sterolins, a glucoside of the sterols which is needed for the sterols to be absorbed and useful to the immune system. Without the sterolins, you will miss the main health benefits of the sterols.
Karl H. Pegel, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Chemistry, University of Natal, Durban, South Africa, discovered that each sitosterol and its glucoside (sitosterolin) must be kept together molecularly in as close juxtaposition as possible to each other when using the plant fats therapeutically. This close juxtaposition is the way nature intended to have them synergistically react to create their full immune—enhancing response.
Pegel, K.H. "The importance of sitosterol and sitosterolin in human and animal nutrition.” South African Journal of Science 93:263-268, June 1997. (more The Holistic Lifestyle).
In order to get the full immune-enhancing benefits of sterols, you also need the sterolins to provide the bioavailability. Without your body being able to absorb the sterols they are not of much benefit other than to reduce cholesterol absorption. The best ratio of sterols to sterolins, according to Karl Pegel, Ph.D. (arguably one of the foremost authorities on sterols/sterolins since 1968), is 10:1 or better. Natur-Leaf’s ratio is about 6:1.
"Research studies have shown sterols and sterolins to provide important protective and therapeutic physiological effects for helping to maintain a healthy immune system.”
Morton Walker, D.P.M.
"Many of the patients that I see in my clinical practice suffer from problems with their immune systems. Over the years I have learned to better understand not only what the immune system is, but what can go wrong. When I first heard about Natur-Leaf I was excited about its clinical implications. Since including it in my treatment protocols, I am very satisfied with the results that I have seen in a wide variety of conditions. I invite other clinicians to learn about the benefits of Natur-Leaf.”
Dr. H.B. Assoc. Professor of Nutrition
Professor Karl Pegel said in an interview, "I would simply advise any person with arthritis to supplement their diet with sitosterolins.”
Professor Patrick J.D. Bouic tells us that sterols/sterolins are effective for the control of rheumatoid arthritis.
"They do this by reversing the immune abnormality at the site of the disease and by preventing damage caused by inflammation. They target the abnormality and correct its immune dysfunction.”
Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients 193/194:51-52, Aug/Sept. 1999.
"I employ the sterols and sitosterolins to support my patients’ endocrine systems. Such plant fats are especially useful for treating autoimmune diseases, which cause metabolic breakdowns. In this regard, sterols/sitosterolins definitely are remedial for autoimmune diseases.”
Dr. C. M.
"In conclusion, a product such as Natur-Leaf ® contains crucial plant fats, which could almost be classified as ‘vitamins’. Clearly they are essential nutrients. Dr. Pegel points out, that ‘there are a lot of seemingly healthy people who actually are rather sick. While sterols and sterolins are not the answers to all ills, they certainly may be classified in the same category with vitamins C and E or magnesium. Sterols/sterolins are really among the essential ingredients to keep the [human] machinery working. You should go back to the RDA in America and decide that they need to be added to your country’s list of recommended daily allowances.’ ”

Concerning Our Use Of Natur-Leaf ® In Medical Practice Since February 2000
by Dr. Y. I. Sosonkin and Professor I. Sosonkin
A large number of studies have looked at the effectiveness of sitosterols, which is the primary ingredient of the Natur-Leaf product that we have used in our medical practice since February 2000. Sitosterols raise superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels, which are basic to lifespan. These enzymes change the superoxide anion to hydrogen peroxides and then to water or water and oxygen. The SOD involved in the first step of the process against free-radical activity includes both antioxidant scavenging enzymes and free antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E, which may be classified in the same category with sitosterols:
•Has anti-mutagenic activity because it resists cellular damage from environmental toxins.
•Helps people with diverticular colon disease because they have low levels of sitosterol.
•Stops coughing and is a healthful supplement for the lungs.
•Is useful in treating autoimmune diseases.
•Inhibits the development of prostate adenoma and tumor growth.
•Improves liver function (SGOT,SGPT).
•Inhibits cancer cell growth.
•Normalizes blood sugar.
•Prevents the promotion or dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
•Night urination is reduced; urine flow rate improved.
•Has high anti-bacterial and antimycotic activity (kills fungus).
•Has effective antiviral properties.
•Inhibits the growth of prostate, breast and colon cancer.
•Has an effect on the immune system by stimulating the formation of T-cells.
•Helps reduce the levels of Cortisol in the blood, which is released at times of stress.
•Blocks the development of certain tumors and the abnormal production of inflammatory proteins.
•Has anti-hypoglycemic effects that can be important for the treatment of diabetes, hypoglycemia and cardiovascular diseases.
•Reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
•Helps to maintain hydration in the cells.
•Helps to regulate cellular function accurately.
It is impossible for us to get the sitosterol we need from our diet. Therefore, supplementation is important. We have found that Natur-Leaf actually has an effect on patients with autoimmune disorders - disorders which often are initiated by a viral infection or allergic reaction, allergy rhinitis, hay fever, asthma, chronic urticaria, angioedema, acne, allergies to foods and medications, chronic candida syndrome, yeast infection, leaky-gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, benign prostate hyperplasia, prostatodynia, trans urethral resection of the prostate, prostate cancer, colon cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, osteoporosis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, insulin resistance, PMS, fibrocystic breast, lymphoma, sexual impotence, Sjogren’s syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, incontinence of urine, and interstitial cystitis.
Our impression is that all of the above diseases are associated with yeast syndrome or chronic candidiasis and enzyme deficiency. Also, their recurrence is connected with celiac disease, a condition caused by sensitivity of gluten, a major component of the wheat endosperm. We have instructed our own family to avoid yeast and gluten. We use the Natur-Leaf supplement in combination with traditional medical or alternative complementary treatments.
We have seen patients who have irritable bowel syndrome, spastic colons, abdominal cramping, rheumatoid arthritis, cystitis, fibromyalgia, hay fever, asthma, allergies to foods and medications, benign prostate hypertrophy and acne have their symptoms completely reverse and the patients return to normal health. We advise patients with autoimmune and degenerative diseases to supplement their yeast-free diet ( we believe that yeast is not a problem this is not related to candida, the main thing is to avoid refined carbohydrates especially from wheat see our Candida article) with Natur-Leaf. This protocol not only helps the body fight disease, but it can help correct the underlying cause of the disease. This protocol also helps our patients optimize their health as they age with careful and appropriate natural intervention. This includes not only encouraging patients to avoid common health problems such as heart disease, strokes, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis, but we also show them how to strengthen their immune systems in their bodies so as to enjoy maximal lifespan more fully.
The above information comes from our personal experience and clinical practice in successfully managing health in aging patients.
Doctor, Health Care Provider, and User Testimonials about Natur-Leaf ® Use
Six years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. PSA 4.0. My holistic doctor, who I respect greatly, placed me on an alternative medicine protocol. While I have had great confidence in this ongoing program my PSA number had gone up slowly. A test six months ago indicated the PSA had risen to 5.9. At that time my doctor changed my protocol and the main ingredient in the new program is Natur-Leaf...I just received the results from my last test - PSA DOWN TO 3.7!
Hi, Early last year I started self treating the autoimmune disease Sarcoidosis, and it was recommended to me that I should include Natur-Leaf® in my regime. On the 16/12/04 I faxed you an order for 3 cases (36 bottle) as per your instructions, I commenced Natur-Leaf® as soon as it arrived and remained solely on this for a couple of months. The effects were noticed within a couple of weeks, the severe inflammations were drastically reduced and I began to feel better than I have for over 14 years then added other products aimed at killing off the bacteria which caused my disease. I was on 9/capsules per day from the start . . .unwanted inflammations are kept to a absolute minimum . . . I intend staying on 9/day for some time and then reducing to 5/day the rest of my life.

I have been diagnosed with Vasculitis since Jan 2003 and have made tremendous improvement since taking Natur-Leaf ®. Most remarkable is that my kidney function, which was down to 40% had been restored to 100% within 6 months. Worries over the condition of my heart have also been overcome. I have had no relapse, nor suffered from any other illness or condition since I started taking Natur-Leaf ®. The doctors have been able to drop my medication of immune suppressants and steroids much more quickly than might otherwise have been possible.
R. M. (England)
I would like to thank you for your excellent product, Natur-Leaf. I have personally been using it for 5 months with incredible results. I have been sick with debilitating allergies and asthma for the past 7 years. I typically spend Sept. through January in bed, with extreme breathing and sinus difficulties. I have tried everything that comes my way (as a D.C. that is a lot!) over the years with very mixed results. This fall is the first time I have not only been up and about, but have been able to work a full week. The only thing I can attribute that to is your product. I have been strongly recommending it to my fellow doctors in this area.
Dr. L.H. (Colorado)
Upon using your product, "Natur-Leaf" I have found remarkable benefits to my lifestyle. Before Natur-Leaf I could not imagine A day without pain from my arthritis. I tried every cream and pill on the market with little or no help. With Natur-Leaf I can truthfully say it has done a world of good for me, and that's not all; my last doctor appointment my doctor said that my cholesterol was absolutely great. I don't know how it works, but to the makers of Natur-Leaf my heartfelt thanks. P.S. I have several of my children and friends on it now.
I am 74 years old and have been taking Natur-Leaf for over a year. I work every day or play golf. I get up feeling good. I think you have a great product.
Your plant sterol product, Natur-Leaf, has been outstandingly helpful to me. I am 61 years old and I have lupus, Crohn’s disease, chronic systemic candidiasis and a general tendency to be unable to combat infections on my own…It seems to have balanced my immune system so that the symptoms of both autoimmune diseases (the lupus and the Crohn’s) have diminished by about 50%….It has increased my ability to fight off infections of all kinds, so that the candida and a stubborn tooth infection are both under much better control… I do hope your business will prosper and expand. If I had to do without your product, I would be in very bad shape. Thanks so much for your work.
Dr. W.C. (New Jersey)
I started to take Natur-Leaf because I suffered from seasonal allergies. I tried everything, including medications. Not only did Natur-Leaf help with my allergies, I noticed that I have not had a cold since.
M.M. (New York)
I suffered from seasonal allergies for ten years. Not any more. Since taking Natur-Leaf I feel much better.
J.J. (New York)
My husband and I would like to thank you for your product, Natur-Leaf. It has really helped our immune systems. We are crazy about it.
Several years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had taken medications and then looked into alternative therapies. I heard about Natur-Leaf and thought I would give it a try. Was I surprised. It has helped my joints and improved my range of motion.
B.P. (New York)
I am so pleased to find and use Natur-Leaf. I had never heard of sterols/sterolins until I found your natural product. Since being on your product, I have not had the flu or other illnesses and I am feeling great! In addition to vitamins, Natur-Leaf is also on my daily regimen since it provides nutrition that I cannot get in my other vitamin supplements. Everyone should be on this product.
J.D. (New Mexico)
I suffer from BPH and started to take Natur-Leaf instead of my prostate supplement. I couldn’t believe the difference. Within days I felt an improvement in my symptoms. I stopped the medication as well.
B.P. (New York)
I have an autoimmune disease, namely Bullous Pemphigoid, and have been on the dreaded prednisone for the past nine years. As this went on until I tried Natur-Leaf. I’ve been on it now for 6 months and I have reduced my prednisone to 2 ½ mg, which I could not have done in all the 9 years previously. I feel loads better. My strength has returned and I feel that I will some day write you stating that I have been able to completely end my regimen of taking prednisone! This may all sound like a miracle, but I know it’s working for me.
Hello, I sell natural health supplements and became interested in your product after my grandfather used it and experienced remarkable benefits. He is in his late 80s with a lung condition that is supposed to be progressive but since taking this it has stopped progressing. Anyway, I am very interested in adding this product to my supplements and or eliminating a lot of other items I carry.
I just wanted to say that Natur-Leaf® is one of the few that I have consistently taken over the past years. More than once a bug has come through our house and I only got a touch of it or none at all. Of course I do get the small common cold, but other viral bugs that are really horrible, do not bother me. I now have my husband taking your product...usually he gets sick and it turns into pneumonia. This year, that did not happen. So I am feeling that I might have him around for a while. I think the most important thing is that people know that you can't just take this product for a few weeks.... it has a cumulative effect from what I can tell. Thanks again, for making a product that does what it says it will do and more!
I have been using Natur-Leaf for several months in order to reduce inflammation caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have been taking 4 capsules a day. It has helped with the inflammation, yet I think I should try to up the dosage for a time and see if I could reduce my use of two other prescribed medications. In any case, the Natur-Leaf has taken away a chronic sinus condition I had suffered with for 10 years, since ceasing use of nicotine. I greatly appreciate the help Natur-leaf has afforded my life, and I am interested in information about a Distributorship.
G.A.H. (New York)
I just wanted to share that your product is truly remarkable.... These improvements suggest my Hashimoto's thyroiditis is back under control, & I can't wait to get blood work done again to prove it to my skeptical doctor! Natur-Leaf is amazing & I will never let my supply run out again. . . . I can also vouch from previous blood work that within a few months of using Natur-Leaf, my anti-thyroid peroxidase antibody reading went from a thyroid-destroying level of 240 (-it should be under 40!), to under 10!!!
M.K. (Nova Scotia, Canada)
"The benefits of this product has brought me back from a painful fibromyalgia state to almost feeling like my old self. I have been taking it for about 5 years. It has really worked wonders and whenever I run out, by the third day I’m feeling a lot more pain.”
Natur-Leaf ®General Review
"A universal tool for natural health maintenance and immune control. A true master-source for energy management and age deceleration!"
Peter R. Rothschild MD, Ph.D
This ground-breaking green sprout combination containing a high-impact sterol/sterolin combination represents an unprecedented synergistic formula that enhances quality of life from disease control to age-retarding.
Scientists first isolated sterols, plant fats - and their glucosides, sterolins, natural compounds found in all fruits and vegetables, as far back as 1922. However, their remarkable health benefits were only realized and confirmed by extensive research in the last two decades.
Numerous ongoing clinical trials reveal that concentrations of sterols and sterolins offer extraordinary support to the immune system of both humans and animals.
Until 1999, these plant concentrates have been available only in Europe and South Africa. Today, Natur-Leaf ® - buttressed by an exclusive process of growth and processing of natural plant sprouts - offers this veritable breakthrough in health supplementation to a worldwide market of health-conscious consumers.
No chemical extractions allow a higher concentration and purity.
Natur-Leaf ® is produced using a unique, proprietary method of concentrating sterols and sterolins from plants. Instead of using chemical processes of extraction, sprouts are grown hydroponically and harvested at their peak of growth. Then they are freeze-dried without using any harsh chemicals. Thus, the process preserves all valuable properties of the phytosterols integrated in our dietary supplement.
Several clinical trials sponsored by Lifeline Inc. have explored the benefits of sterols and sterolins in patients afflicted with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Recurrent Migraine Headaches, Psoriasis, Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, Cholesterol Regulation, and Menopausal Syndrome.
Safe to take daily…without any known side effects.
Natur-Leaf ® has been taken by thousands of customers. To this day no side effects have been reported.
Since sterols and sterolins were introduced in 1999 to the health supplement market in the United States, there understandably are questions about Natur-Leaf ®. Here are some of the most common.
What exactly are these substances?
Present in every plant, sterols and sterolins are literally vegetable fats, which have been proven as effective enhancers of the human immune response. Some plants, particularly seeds and sprouts, are richer than others in the compounds.
If sterols and sterolins are found naturally in fruits, vegetables and seeds, why do I need to take them as supplements?
For several reasons. First, contemporary diets noticeably lack the necessary servings of fruits, vegetables and seeds. Second, sterols and sterolins are bound to the fibers in the plant, which makes them very hard to absorb. They yield a low percentage of bioavailability. The third, and probably the most important reason why you need this supplement, is that food preparation removes or breaks down much of the sterols and sterolins present in your nutrition.
Because Natur-Leaf ® is derived from young growing sprouts, it ensures a much higher concentration of sterols and sterolins than you can find in the produce section of your grocery store.
I haven't heard much about sterols and sterolins. If they are so great, why aren't doctors rushing to prescribe the supplement?
These compounds were introduced into the United States as a dietary supplement in 1999. Doctors only now are beginning to realize the true benefits of these phytosterols. Currently there are several ongoing studies, including one conducted by researchers at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. Dr Atif Awad, head of UB's Nutrition Program, found that b-sitosterol appears to play an important role in inhibiting the growth of human prostate cancer cells.
What is the suggested serving size of Natur-Leaf ® sterol/sitosterolin capsules?
It depends. As a supplement to help modulate your immune system, take two capsules daily. For possible therapeutic endeavors - for instance in case of an immune disorder - it is recommended that 6-9 capsules be taken per day (i.e. 2 at breakfast, 2 at lunch and 2 at dinner) for maximum effect. After the first 3 months you may be able to reduce your dosage.
"Sterols and sitosterols consist of certain vegetable fats that wield extraordinary immunomodulatory effect on both human and animal organisms. It is truly regrettable that contemporary food-refining processes remove these elemental, yet superb, phytonutrients from sources in which they naturally occur. Research projects are revealing both the magnitude and the mechanisms of the potentials of these astounding plant fats."
