Vitacost Phytosterol Complex with Beta-sitosterol -- 120 Tablets
Great Value compared to the Name Brand
Warehouse clubs and online vendors charge anywhere from $13 to $27 for the equivalent name brand quantity -- when they stock the tablet formulation at all. Pharmacies charge even more.
Some of us do prefer tablets, even large ones, over capsules for various reasons. I personally have no problem swallowing the super-size tablet, but I can appreciate that other individuals might.
Note that one Vitacost tablet provides the equivalent of two name brand tablets, which explains why the tablet is large.

to big to swallow
I dread taking this pill everyday. it is so large, it is not coated either which makes it even more difficult to swallow. please make in a softgel or capsule and I will buy it again.

Very hard to take
While this product purports to have a high phytosterol count and may, the pills are so large that they need to be crushed and put into liquid to swalow. My husband tried cutting them in half then had to deal with the taste. After a month, we're still not seeing any significant improvement.

Great deal for the price
I haven't had any tests yet to see if phytosterols actually are lowering my cholesterol but I have high expectations. I just wanted to give a word of warning to those who have a hard time swallowing pills - these are huge and porous. I, however, take them with a big gulp of liquid and have no problem. You can also cut them in half.
