Lowering Your Cholesterol the Natural Way

People who eat more than 4 servings a day of fruits & vegetables have lower cholesterol levels. The more fruits and vegetables that you eat also lowers your chances of heart Disease, cancer and many other health problems says, Dr. Don Colbert, Author of Seven Pillars of Health.

In addition to eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, there are 5 foods that will lower your cholesterol and protect your heart:

1.) Oatmeal and Oatbran- Eating 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal provides 6 grams of fiber/day.

2.) Walnuts and Almonds- According to the Food and Drug Administration, eating about a handful (1.5 ounces, or 42.5 grams) a day of most nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachio nuts and walnuts, may reduce your risk of heart disease.

3.) Eat More Fish- Doctors recommend eating at least two servings of fish a week.

4.) Olive Oil- The Food and Drug Administration recommends using about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil a day to get its heart-healthy benefits.

5.) Foods fortified with plant sterols or stanols-Foods are now available that have been fortified with sterols or stanols — substances found in plants that help block the absorption of cholesterol.

Margarines, orange juice and yogurt drinks fortified with plant sterols can help reduce LDL cholesterol by more than 10 percent.

A Final Note from the Mayo Clinic:
Before you make other changes to your diet, think about cutting back on the types and amounts of fats you eat, which can raise your cholesterol. That way, you'll improve your cholesterol levels and health overall.

Furthermore, Study shows that taking the Whole Food Supplement, (Juice Plus) helps to improve Cardovascular health. For more Health & Wellness tips and/or Natural Living tips, follow Natural Living 101 on twitter at!
