There is bad cholesterol and good cholesterol. The low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is the bad because it is responsible for clogging the arteries, while high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) is the good because it helps take the LBD to the liver where it is eliminated.
In addition to some teas to lower cholesterol, there are also several homemade tricks that can be put into practice.
1. OAT WATER
Oatmeal water is very good at lowering cholesterol. It is believed that oat fiber is mixed with cholesterol in the small intestine, then it binds to cholesterol molecules and takes it out of the body instead of being absorbed into the blood.
In a liter of water, add 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and let soak overnight. Do not strain it. The next day drink it little by little during the day.
To make this remedy, in two liters of water, throw an eggplant divided into four pieces and boil for a few minutes. Drink it little by little during the day.
2. CABBAGE WATER TO LOWER HIGH CHOLESTEROL
Put half a cabbage in 3 liters of water to boil for 20 minutes. Let cool and put it into the refrigerator in a glass jar. Take 1 liter during the day. Not only low cholesterol, it helps you lose weight.
3. REMEDY FOR HIGH CHOLESTEROL WITH PARSLEY WINE
3/4 liter of red wine, 50g of parsley. Mix the two ingredients and let them rest in the bottle for 12 days. Take a glass after the meal.
Recent studies have found that lecithin lowers bad cholesterol levels and raises good cholesterol levels. You can buy lecithin capsules in almost every store in the vitamin aisle.
5. EGGPLANT WATER TO REGULATE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS
According to a study published by whfoods.org people who drank eggplant juice had a significant reduction in levels of bad cholesterol. It is believed that these positive effects were due to nasunin, a phytonutrient found in eggplant that acts as a scavenger of free radicals and phytonutrients terpenes.
6. OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS
Although there are other foods that contain Omega 3 fatty acids, they are usually obtained from fish oil. You can include two servings of fish in the diet per week or you can get it in supplement that you can buy in capsules and that is very effective in dissolving cholesterol in veins and saturated fats.
In both conventional medicine and natural medicine, fish oil supplement is recommended as a treatment to lower triglycerides. In the book Prescription for Natural Cures by Dr. James F. Balch it is recommended to take 2000 to 3000 mg of EPA and DHA.
