3 Natural Ways to Battle Cholesterol

Red yeast riceA well-balanced diet and exercise are proven ways to reduce cholesterol but another natural way can really make a difference in your treatment. Natural products for cholesterol have been one of the most popular supplements for many years for a simple reason: they are efficient. If you are not familiar with these, here are 3 natural ways to battle cholesterol.

1. Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice has been a hot-selling item for cholesterol for many years. This all-natural product has been tested in many different ways and has been shown to lower cholesterol as well as a statin drug. Most red yeast rice supplements are similar to the ones used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. A number of pharmaceutical drugs contain the exact same ingredient, red yeast rice, in their formulations.

2. Omega-3 Supplements

Omega-3 supplements are good for overall health but they are also a great way to regulate cholesterol. The popular “fish-oil” offers a combination of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the two most beneficial types of omega-3 fats. Doctors recommend 1000mg a day and you can choose from softgel products as well as the liquid form. A good tip: look for enteric-coated products which are designed to dissolve in the intestines instead of the stomach, avoiding the unpleasant fishy burps.

3. Policosanol

Rounding up our list, we present you policosanol. Made from sugar cane, this all-natural supplement has been known to be effective in lowering cholesterol as well as maintaining normal HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. Policosanol has powerful antioxidant capabilities that inhibit oxidation of cholesterol. The long-chain alcohols found in policosanol are present in many foods of plant origin but supplemental policosanol is typically extracted from sugar cane or beeswax.
