How to Lower Cholesterol Levels Without Medication - 3 Powerful Cholesterol Lowering Tips

By Vicknesh @wellhealthblog
Learning how to lower cholesterol levels without having to use medication is not as complicated as many people think. However, if you rely on healthcare professionals primarily for your health information, this is not the message you will receive. It seems that most doctors have much training in the use of medication but way too little training in nutrition.So, you will need to do your own research as you are doing now. Here are 3 cholesterol lowering tips to help you get started.1.) Keep high fiber, high nutrient snacks available at all times. This is probably the easiest way to help lower cholesterol levels. Nuts and whole grains make wonderful snacks. This is critically important for many of us, because if we don't have cholesterol lowering food available, we will often resort to high cholesterol snacks that we find at convenience stores (or in the pantry at home).
2.) If you are serious about learning how to lower cholesterol levels, you will need to make changes in your diet. For many of us, this is the most difficult aspect of improving our cholesterol readings. It is important to completely cut out foods that contain high amounts of saturated fat such as beef and pork.Later on, after your cholesterol levels have come down, you will be able to return to eating these foods. Just keep in mind that they will need to be lean cuts of meat such as sirloin and tenderloin.3.) The last of the cholesterol lowering tips also involves diet. The most effective way to lower cholesterol levels is to increase the amounts of fruits and vegetables. These contain plants sterols and fiber, both of which are universally accepted as being effective in proving lipid levels in the blood.Basically, plant sterols help prevent cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream while the fiber found in these foods helps eliminate cholesterol from the body before it can be absorbed.By Van Crawford
