If your bad Cholesterol levels are too high, here are some foods that may help.

ARTICHOKES, ONION, AND 1-2 CLOVES OF GARLIC a day can help lower blood cholesterol, although it is not known why.

WALNUTS, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, ALMONDS, PUMPKIN SEEDS, LINSEED, WHEATGERM AND SOYA BEAN all provide linoleic acid, the essential fatty acid that lowers total cholesterol and , to some extent reduces the tendency of the blood to form harmful clots. Eat small regular amounts: too much linoleic acid will lower HDL as well as LDL, cholesterol.

OATS, PULSES, APPLES, DRIED FRUIT, CITRUS FRUIT AND PEAS are all rich in soluble fibre which reduces the amount of LDL cholesterol entering the bloodstream. Soluable fibre needs a low-fat diet to work well. Oats can also lower raised blood pressure.


why pay more ?

And don't forget the new findings on cinnamon!

Cinnamon: "Cinnamon affects cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose transport -- all reported in clinical trials," says Don Graves, Ph.D., a professor of biochemistry at the University of California in Santa Barbara. In a 2003 study, researchers supplemented the diets of 60 diabetic men and women with one, three, or six grams (just more than one teaspoon) of cinnamon daily. After 40 days, subjects' levels of ldl cholesterol fell by as much as 26 percent. "There was no difference in the effects at one gram or six," Graves says.

I can attest to the power of cinnamon for cholesterol. My husband's cholesterol went from 220 to 159 in a year and cinnamon was the only thing he did differently. Also, my parents, now in their 80's had similar drops after introducing cinnamon. My sister tried it and her's dropped 40 points in 6 months.

Honestly, cinnamon was the only thing they added. I put about a half teaspoon into my husband's morning smoothie and then few months ago we also added 500 mg capsules. It works great!

Thanks for the testimonial Joan! I've added the spice, but I'm thinking about adding capsules too. Haven't priced them yet tho.

Sorry I didn't visit back to this forum sooner. The cinnamon capsules aren't expensive at all-especially for the benefit they provide. I think I pay about $4 for 100.
