SWAMI recommends stigmasterol. What does it do? What foods contain it?

Normally stigmasterol is derived from soy.

Also found in other plants.

Particularly high: American Ginseng, Mai men dong, rape seed, bitter melon

To a lesser extent in various vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds.


Animal source: raw milk




Precursor to progesterone so it can be used to play with hormone levels.

Some people claim it helps prevent certain types of cancers.

Some studies suggest it lowers serum cholesterol levels.

Some claim it help with osteoarthritis.

Thank you! I'm not sure what hunter foods contain this. I don't have access to bitter melon. I can't have milk, soy, and rapeseed either.

If your SWAMI says this:

"Stigmasterol | Your SWAMI Clinician has chosen to emphasize this nutrient"

You do not need to worry about which foods contain stigmasterol, SWAMI has already gone through the list of all the foods and changed the ratings of the foods containing stigmasterol.  All you need to do is eat according to the plan and you will get stigmasterol.

Let the software do the work!

----

If you are concerned, you should try to not short change the fat category and foods high in fats (such as nuts and seeds). These are the foods that are going to contain the most stigmasterol.

Thank you both! This community is great. I am going to try to eat more dark chocolate.
