Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty, waxy substance in your blood. Some cholesterol comes from the foods you eat. Your body makes the rest.

Cholesterol has a few useful purposes. Your body needs it to make hormones and healthy cells. Yet having too much of the wrong type of cholesterol can cause health problems.

You have two kinds of cholesterol in your body:

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is the unhealthy kind of cholesterol that clogs arteries. You want to keep your level below 100 mg/dL.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the healthy kind that helps to clear LDL cholesterol out of your arteries. You want to aim for a level of 60 mg/dL or higher.

    Supplements that may Help

    1. Fibre 

    Soluble fiber lowers cholesterol by preventing reabsorption of bile in your gut, which leads to the excretion of bile in the feces. Your body pulls cholesterol from the bloodstream to make more bile, therefore reducing levels.

    2.Herbs and Spices
    Herbs and spices are nutritional powerhouses packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

    Human studies have shown that garlic, turmeric and ginger are especially effective at lowering cholesterol when eaten regularly.

    In fact, eating just one garlic clove per day for three months is enough to lower total cholesterol by 9%.

    3.  Plant Sterol -  Phytosterols
    Phytosterols are natural compounds found in plants that can help you safely lower your cholesterol levels to avoid health risks such as heart attack and stroke. They may also help prevent obesity, diabetes and cancer. To meet dietary goals and keep high cholesterol in check, eat foods with added plant sterols or use supplements.

    4.  Niacin:
    Daily supplements of 1–6 grams of niacin can lower LDL cholesterol levels up to 19% over one year. 

    Recommended:  Now B-Complex 

    5.  L-carnitine
    L-carnitine lowers LDL levels and reduces oxidation for people with diabetes. Taking 2 grams per day for three months can lower oxidized cholesterol levels five times more than a placebo
