A Natural Way to Lower Cholesterol Levels
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the nation’s leading causes of death. High levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol can lead to CHD. However, many people may be unaware of a natural way to lower cholesterol levels.
Plant sterols have been proven to be a natural way to lower cholesterol levels and are recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration. In fact, most people already consume plant sterols everyday; however, the amount consumed is usually too small to have an effect on cholesterol.
In order to consume enough plant sterols, it is important to know what foods contain them.
Fruits, vegetables, vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, legumes and other plant products contain plant sterols in very small amounts. Plant sterols are currently added to several other processed foods as well. These foods include some margarines, granola bars, cereals, salad dressings, yogurts, cheeses and orange juices.
According to the FDA, to receive the cholesterol lowering benefits of plant sterols, a daily total intake of at least 1.3 grams of plant sterols as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol is required. The risk of heart disease decreases because both LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol is lowered.
By including more foods with plant sterols in your daily diet and limiting foods with saturated fat and cholesterol, you will begin to see the great health benefits that these foods have to offer.
