Cholesterol is a type of fat in our blood. While our body produces all the necessary cholesterol, we also take cholesterol from the foods we consume. High cholesterol, especially LDL cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) which is also called “bad” cholesterol, is one of the main risk factors for developing the disease. It increases our chance of developing heart disease and having a heart attack, as well as a stroke. Many factors can contribute to an increase in blood cholesterol levels, including the existence of an underlying condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, unhealthy lifestyle, unhealthy diet, smoking, lack of physical activity, lack of sleep and constant stress.
There are natural ways to lower blood cholesterol levels, such as avoiding trans fats and junk food, eating oily fish, brightly coloured fruits and vegetables and exercising regularly.
Here is a natural remedy for cholesterol recipe:
Boil 200 ml of filtered water and let it cool down for 5 minutes, then pour over a green tea bag. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bag and add ½ teaspoon of turmeric, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of black pepper, and mix well to combine.
Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of raw honey and stir to dissolve.
Drink sip by sip in the morning on an empty stomach, for 7 days. Repeat after three weeks.
This drink helps to strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body, and help weight loss. It has been proven to be excellent for cleaning blood vessels from plaque and accumulated fat on the artery walls in a natural way.
- It is also desirable to increase the intake of healthy fibre because a diet rich in fibre improves blood cholesterol levels.
- There is more and more evidence that the Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and the development of diabetes.
