5 juices and drinks to lower bad cholesterol
levels. Did you know that parsley can help us lower
cholesterol? It also helps us lower triglycerides, reduce blood pressure and, as vasodilator,
improves circulation. Cholesterol is a lipid that our body needs
in certain amounts to work properly. However, sedentary lifestyle and poor diet have led
to undue increase in cholesterol levels , resulting in serious health problems and increased risks
of heart disease, stroke and other problems. Cholesterol is present in almost all of our
body, especially in the nervous system, skin, muscles, liver, intestines and heart. In turn,
this is divided into two categories to identify whether it is “bad” cholesterol or “good”
cholesterol, LDL or HDL respectively. Bad cholesterol is the product of a diet rich
in fried foods, sweets, artificial products, fats, or sausages, among others. For its part,
good cholesterol or HDL is the one that is responsible for collecting bad cholesterol
from the blood and transport it to the liver to be eliminated. Precisely this is what makes
it “good” because it is responsible for helping to eliminate excess bad cholesterol present
in the body. If after the last clinical tests the doctor
determined that your cholesterol levels are high, perhaps it is time to consider some
juices and home-made drinks that can help you control this problem to reduce the likelihood
of its possible consequences. Juices and drinks to combat bad cholesterol:
