Heart disease is a killer that has more victims to its name in the United States than cancer, and while heart disease is detected until it is too late, it is considered to be a result of making unhealthy choices when it comes to your diet and lifestyle.
It is only when one commits to changes in these areas will one see a drastic improvement, however, there are herbs that will help you keep it under control despite not being to control the condition itself.
And if one does have a serious cholesterol problem, then perhaps these simple foods and beverages could help make lasting changes, keeping in mind that serious changes have to be made to your diet and lifestyle as well.
- 1. Garlic
This vegetable is probably several people’s first choice as it not only emulsifies cholesterol, and in doing so, lowers cholesterol but also has a host of other benefits as an immune booster as well as an antibiotic.
- 2. Green Tea
Not only is this known to increase ‘good cholesterol’ but lower ‘bad cholesterol’ and triglyceride levels as well. In addition to this, it has been accepted the world over a refreshing beverage along with being a powerful antioxidant and an immune system booster.
- 3. Red Yeast Rice
In slowing down the production of cholesterol, red yeast rice lowers cholesterol. And since it is so effective, it is often used in the preparation of prescription drugs that work as cholesterol medication such as Statin and so on and so forth. But, of course, since this is natural, one can hardly expect any side-effects (unlike prescription drugs) in consuming red yeast rice.
