This One Simple Habit Can Lower Cholesterol And Improve Heart Health

This One Simple Habit Can Lower Cholesterol And Improve Heart Health

Cholesterol is a waxy, non-water soluble fatty lipid substance found inside your body tissue and blood plasma. The body produces cholesterol on its own.

Your body needs cholesterol in order to function properly. But as with many things, too much can cause big problems. High cholesterol levels combined with a poor diet and inflammation lead to heart disease and other problems with the circulatory system.

Cholesterol levels in different people can vary based on dietary choices and genetic factors.

The effects of high cholesterol are as follows:

  • Poor circulation
  • Plaque buildup in arteries
  • Blood clots
  • Chest discomfort/pain
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Bile imbalance
  • Gallstones
  • Heart disease
  • … and that’s not all! 

 

The good news is, just as certain dietary habits can be the main cause behind unhealthy levels of cholesterol, simple changes in diet can have a big impact in restoring healthy levels.

Juicing Vegetables For Lower Cholesterol

juicing

Did you know that you can lower your cholesterol levels by juicing vegetables?

A Japanese study found that participants with hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol in the blood) who drank green vegetable and fruit juice experienced lower levels of LDL cholesterol than those who didn’t.

In another study, researchers found that male participants who went on a juice fast experienced a decrease of free cholesterol levels.

Other studies have found that juicing certain vegetables, like carrots, increases total antioxidant status in the body, decreasing inflammation and boosting overall health.

No time or money to juice? In third party clinical trials, our very own Organifi Green Juice powder has been shown to help significantly lower total cholesterol levels when taken twice daily over a 90-day trial period.
