High cholesterol – a diagnosis most of the people over 40 regularly hear. But what it is exactly?
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that our blood contains. It is absolutely necessary to build healthy cells in our organism, bones and tissue. But high cholesterol levels are a serious risk for the heart and the cardiovascular system.
The medications that are prescribed to treat this disease cost a lot of money and if you ask me – anything that you can buy in a pharmacy – you should supplement it and switch it with a natural cure.
And there is no better cure than food. Natural, of course.
- Garlic – being the number 1 food that helps with all sorts of diseases and bacterial infections, garlic helps with lowering the cholesterol, as well as triglycerides. If you can’t eat natural garlic, make sue to at least take garlic supplements
- Apples – who hasn’t heard the saying “An apple per day keeps the doctor away”? This especially goes for the heart. An apple per day can lower the cholesterol for almost 40%!
- Celery – this super smelling natural root is completely edible and gives a whole new dimension to any soup. But celery gives elasticity to the veins and arteries, which prevents them from plugging. A study also revealed that celery increases the secretion of bile acid, which works in the process of eliminating cholesterol out from the body.
