Reduce your Cholesterol

reduce cholesterolHerbs that assist your body to reduce Cholesterol include:

Artichoke – The total antioxidant capacity of artichoke flower heads is one of the highest reported for vegetables. It inhibits taste receptors, making water (and other foods and drinks) seem sweet. Studies have shown artichoke to aid digestion, hepatic and gall bladder function, and raise the ratio of HDL to LDL. This reduces cholesterol levels, which diminishes the risk for arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Aqueous extracts from artichoke leaves have also been shown to reduce cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase and having a hypolipidemic influence, lowering blood cholesterol.  Artichoke leaf extract has proved helpful for patients with functional dyspepsia as well.
