<ul><li><p> Page 1 </p><p>How to Lower Your Cholesterol without Medication </p><p>Cholesterol is one of the most feared terms in human </p><p>health. Who would not be? Having too much of it, </p><p>especially the bad ones, can increase your risk of heart </p><p>attack or stroke. But do not fret, there are many ways to </p><p>prevent and cure it such as taking certain medications. </p><p>But if you are leaning more to natural healing, here are </p><p>some ways on how to lower your cholesterol without </p><p>medication. </p><p> Take the right fat. </p><p>Not all fats are the same. Some are good, while some are not. So steer clear from trans </p><p>fats as it raise your LDL (bad cholesterol) and lower your HDL (good cholesterol), and </p><p>keep your saturated fat intake to a minimum. </p><p>Also avoid or limit your whole dairy products and red meat intake as both are rich in </p><p>fats. Choose non-fat or low-fat counterparts and lean cut white meat instead. </p><p>Then replace the bad fats with the good ones like omega-3 and omega-6 found in oily </p><p>fishes and nuts, and unsaturated oils like olive, canola and sunflower oil. The good fats </p><p>not only lower your cholesterol, but also reduce your risks to high blood pressure and </p><p>other heart ailments. </p><p>But just like everything else, take fats, even the good ones, moderately. </p><p> Eat more fiber. </p><p>Fiber rich foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans naturally lower LDL and </p><p>raise HDL. The antioxidants present in fruits and vegetables lower your cholesterol and </p><p>shield your heart from diseases. While the water soluble fiber from whole grains and </p><p>beans binds with cholesterol and brings it out of your system. </p><p> Exercise regularly. </p><p>Set aside at least 30 minutes a day to exercise. Studies show that physical activity </p><p>improves your cholesterol level, while the lack of it raises the LDL. Moving a lot also </p><p>helps you lose weight and strengthen your cardiovascular system. </p></li><li><p> Page 2 </p><p> Maintain a healthy weight. </p><p>Being overweight or worse, obese increases your risk of heart problems. It may also </p><p>increase your cholesterol level. So start to have a healthy diet and exercise a lot. </p><p> Avoid sweet and refined foods. </p><p>High glycemic foods, especially the packaged ones, are not only addictive but also </p><p>contribute in cholesterol production. So gradually eliminate it in your diet and replace it </p><p>with vegetables, fruits and whole grains that are also sweet and satisfying. </p><p> Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake. </p><p>Both are shown to raise your cholesterol level, so limit your intake to only one serving a </p><p>day and replace it with water and natural fruit juices. </p><p> Manage stress in a healthy way. </p><p>Some studies found out that there is a correlation between </p><p>high stress and high cholesterol production. So breathe, let </p><p>go and clear your mind to keep your stress and cholesterol </p><p>levels in check. </p><p> Take dietary supplements. </p><p>If medicines are not your thing, a dietary supplement like fish </p><p>oil capsules may do. Fish oil capsules are rich in essential </p><p>fatty acids that lower your cholesterol. It also reduces your </p><p>risks to heart disease. Other supplements with antioxidants, garlic, B-complex and GTF </p><p>chromium also help. </p><p>If you want to get more information about how to lower your cholesterol without </p><p>medication, please click here. </p></li></ul>
