Natural Ways to Lower Your Cholesterol

You are seeking natural ways to lower cholesterol?
calm, I would like to encourage you to stay with it. Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked by those in the medical community who believe that medication is the best answer. The truth is that while a statin medication is effective at reducing cholesterol, in the long run there are many severe side effects associated with it.

The best ways to lower cholesterol safely involve lifestyle and dietary changes. For instance, science has shown that there are two very effective natural substances found in plants such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits and nuts, that have a powerful effect on lowering cholesterol levels.

In the same way, the saturated fats found in meat and many processed foods have a powerful effect for raising cholesterol. Because of this, it is recommended to eliminate beef and pork from your diet until your cholesterol readings have come down to where they belong.

The two powerful substances found in plants that I mentioned earlier are soluble fiber (which is only found in plants, not meats) and plant sterols. Many of us are familiar with fiber, but plant sterols may be new to you. Sterols are natural substances found in all plants that have a very similar molecular makeup to that of cholesterol.

It is believed that, sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption into the bloodstream. This fact is so well proven that members of the mainstream medical community, the FDA, and alternative medicine all agree on their effectiveness.

Soluble fiber on the other hand, is essential because cholesterol attaches itself to the fiber in the intestines so that it is eliminated from the body.

Cholesterol lowering supplements that contain high amounts of plant sterols, when combined with a high fiber diet, provide one of the most effective natural ways to lower cholesterol that you can find.
