High Cholesterol - 10 Natural ways to Reduce Down

Leave a Comment
Studies suggest that cholesterol problems can be talked to/looked at with simple dietary changes. And (medium-hard exercises that last for a while) further improve the cholesterol lowering effects of a healthy diet. 

Here are some quick tips to lower cholesterol without drugs :

1 . Say no to trans fats

Food manufacturers use trans fats because they extend the shelf life of packaged (cakes, cookies, etc.). They raise LDL (bad cholesterol), lower HDL (good cholesterol), and increase risk of developing heart disease and stroke. They're found in fried foods, (cakes, cookies, etc.) (cakes, pie crusts, frozen pizza, and cookies). Follow this rule: choose fats and oils with 2 grams or less (chicken fat, butter, cream, lard, etc.) per tablespoon.

2 . Switch to olive oil

Substituting olive oil for ghee or butter may reduce LDL cholesterol by as much as 15%, which is just like the effect of a low dose of medicine The "good" fats in olive oil benefit your heart. Choose extra-virgin olive oil.

3 . Add lots of fiber to your diet

Research hints that increasing (able to be dissolved in something) fiber intake by 5 to 10 grams each day may result in a 5% drop in LDL cholesterol. Foods like oatmeal, apples, dried plums, and beans are high in (able to be dissolved in something) fiber, which keeps your body from soaking up cholesterol.

4 . Choose colorful fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with ingredients that lower cholesterol—including fiber, cholesterol-blocking molecules called sterols and stanols, and eye-appealing pigments. These include leafy greens, yellow squashes, carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, plums, blueberries.

5 . Add spices to your cooking

Spices like garlic, curcumin, ginger, black pepper, coriander, and cinnamon can improve cholesterol. Research shows that eating half to one halfway point garlic each day could lower cholesterol up to 9%.

6 . Lose those extra kilos

If you’re overweight, drop of just 4-5 Kg will reduce your LDL by up to 8%.  Having 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day (for women) and 1200-1600 calories/day (for men) will help in losing  weight safely.


7 . Exercise regularly
Exercising at least 2 1/2 hours a week (around 20 minutes per day) is enough to raise HDL (good cholesterol) and improve LDL and triglycerides. Start with a 20 minute quick and energetic walk daily!

8 . Have a handful of nuts
Nuts/very light browns and walnuts contain sterols, which, like fiber, keep the body from soaking up cholesterol. Go for unsalted ones and keep the amount in check.
9 . Quit smoking
Smoking can raise LDL and lower HDL, and quitting often improves those numbers. Breathing secondhand smoke every day can also raise levels of bad cholesterol.
10 . Stay happy
Studies suggest that when you are stressed, your cholesterol levels rise in the body. Start/work at hobby like gardening, join a book club or try deep thinking or yoga classes to keep your spirits high.
