Nutrition To Help Lower Cholesterol

| Filed under: Fitness

Do you need to lower your cholesterol, but don't need to take medicine quite yet?

Well you're in luck, because sometimes you can lower it with nutrition alone!

Here's Margaux Jean to explain:

If you are trying to lower your cholesterol, be sure that you are eating foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that foods like salmon, tuna, cod, and sardines can reduce cholesterol as well as the amino acid taurin, which may decrease cholesterol absorption in the intestines. If you don’t want to eat fish, you can get your omega-3 fatty acids by eating flaxseeds, chia seeds, cauliflower, and nuts. In addition to omega-3, be sure that you are eating nutritious organically grown vegetables that contain vitamin E, C, beta-carotene, and niacin. Such veggies could include carrots, sweet potatoes, and Swiss chard. Garlic and onions have been shown to contain phytonutrients that inhibit cholesterol synthesis and cranberries have been known to increase HDL cholesterol levels. Other great foods for lowering cholesterol include oats, barley, brown rice, cranberries, and legumes. Avoid foods that contain trans-fat.

Fab! Great advice!

Great… delicious… advice! Ha!
