“Learn How to Lower You Cholesterol - Improving Your Health and Your Heart - The Natural Way”


The Most Important Secrets
You Must Learn
In Order to Look and Feel Great
High Cholesterol – Your Hearts Worst Enemy
 “Learn How to Lower You Cholesterol - Improving Your Health and Your Heart - The Natural Way”
Did You Know…?
In some people, cholesterol levels in blood become too high. This is called high cholesterol. LDL ("bad" cholesterol) is considered a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. LDL cholesterol is thought to irritate the lining of blood vessels, causing hardening of the arteries.

Who Needs to Lower Cholesterol?
High cholesterol is usually treated based on total cholesterol, LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels. The people who need to lower their cholesterol levels and make sure their cholesterol is at a healthy level are following:
·         People with diabetes
·         People who smoking
·         People with high blood pressure
·         People with low HDL cholesterol
·         People who have a family history of early heart disease
·         Men 45 and older
·         Women 55 and older
·         A person with a 10 year risk of heart attack greater than 20%
Vitamins and Herbal Supplements that Lower High Cholesterol
·        Vitamin B3 (Niacin) - Vitamin B3 is also known as niacin. It is used to lower cholesterol. Specifically it appears to lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. Well-designed studies have found that niacin lowers LDL cholesterol by 10% to 20%, lowers triglycerides by 20% to 50%, and raises "good" HDL cholesterol by 15% to 35%. Niacin appears to significantly lower levels for another risk factor for arteriosclerosis, lipoprotein
·          Artichoke Leaf-There is some research suggesting that artichoke leaf extract (Cynara scolymnus) may help to lower cholesterol. Artichoke leaf extract may work by limiting the synthesis of cholesterol in the body. Artichokes also contain a compound called cynarin, used to increase bile production in the liver and speed the flow of bile from the gallbladder, both of which may increase cholesterol excretion.
  • Soluble Fiber - Soluble fiber appears to reduce LDL cholesterol by reducing cholesterol absorption in the intestines. Soluble fiber binds with cholesterol so that it is excreted. Soluble fiber can be found as a dietary supplement, such as psyllium powder, or in foods such as:
1.    Oats
2.    Barley
3.    Rye
4.    Legumes (peas, beans)
5.    Some fruits (apples, prunes, and berries)
6.    Some vegetables, (carrots, brussel sprouts, broccoli, yams)
·        Plant Sterols and Stanols - Plant stanols and sterols (such as beta-sitosterol and sitostanol) are naturally occurring substances found in certain plants. Stanols are added to margarine, orange juice, and dressings. Research found that plant stanols and sterols might help to lower cholesterol. They are similar in structure to cholesterol and may help block the absorption of cholesterol absorption from the intestines. Studies have found that stanols significantly reduced total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, but had no significant effect on HDL cholesterol or triglycerides. Stanols and sterols appear to enhance the effects of other methods to lower cholesterol. In studies, people taking the statin drugs to lower cholesterol had an additional improvement in their cholesterol levels with stanols/sterols.
Other Helpful Supplements You Can Use To Lower High Cholesterol
·         Policosanol
·         Red Yeast Rice
·         Coenzyme Q10
·         Garlic
·         Pantothine
