But back to our topic. Many studies show that there is a definite
connection between heart disease and cholesterol. Some doctors suggest the intake of statins,
a cholesterol-lowering drug for patients with high cholesterol since it one point of cholesterol
level drop reduces the risk of heart attack by 2 percent. However, taking statins can
cause several side effects like liver damage, muscle pain, fatigue and other. So we listed
the 5 natural ways of lowering your cholesterol naturally. Improve/Increase good cholesterol. HDL cholesterol or “Good Cholesterol” is much
less likely to clog your arteries and lead to stoke or heart attack as compared to LDL
or “Bad Cholesterol”. Getting regular exercise and keeping fats and animal proteins to a
minimum helps improve your bad and good cholesterol ratio. One important measurement of your overall
health is the amount of HDL cholesterol found in your bloodstream. These letters stand for
“High Density Lipoprotein,” which is considered a good substance. HDLs are much less likely
to clog your arteries and lead to stoke or heart attack as compared to Low Density Lipoproteins.
Doctors usually want to know your cholesterol HDL – LDL ratio as one of the factors in deciding
whether you are at risk for cholesterol’s damaging effects. Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids which we can get from
consumption of fish several times a week can help. Cold-water fish, such as salmon and
others, are particularly important for lowering cholesterol. Alternatively, you can use fish
oil supplements. Fish oil supplements containing EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic
acid) have been proven in several large studies to decrease low density LDL cholesterol and
triglyceride levels. Increase Fiber intake. Fiber lessens the reabsorption of cholesterol
into the bloodstream, lowering our cholesterol level naturally. You can increase your dietary
fiber by eating green leafy vegetable and other foods high in fiber. Niacin. Niacin (vitamin B3) lowers LDL cholesterol
levels while increasing good cholesterol (HDL). Niacin has unique ability to improve lipid
profiles for ApoB, LDL, small dense LDL, HDL, HDL2b – an extremely good cholesterol, Lp(a),
fibrinogen and trigycerides. Flush-free niacin may lower cholesterol while boosting the beneficial
HDL fraction. In a report on the antiatherogenic role of HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol,
flush-free niacin (inositol hexanicotinate) “appears to have the greatest potential to
increase HDL cholesterol [by] 30%.” This study was made over a 5-year period and focused
on the effect of high LDL numbers exhibited before a patient’s first coronary event(s). Reduce cholesterol oxidation using antioxidants. Antioxidants are very vital for disarming
free radicals and preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Antioxidants found in
vitamins C and E includes beta-carotene and lycopene, help protect healthy cells from
damage caused by free radicals. That’s it! Thank you.
