A great detox diet to boost your metabolism and 1hour of fast walk daily.

I don't see how this can be answered since diet and animal products are the #1 cause of high cholesterol.

Jennifer Monroe

#1 cause is your liver producing cholesterol. That comes from your diet. Eating leaner meats and healthier fats with veggies and some fruit is best so the liver can work better then always filtering through junk and sending fat and cholesterol into the blood.

Nora Shannon 3 years

Yeah, no thanks to animal fats gunking up my system. Plants don't cause cholesterol.

Jennifer Monroe 3 years

High cholesterol is because of stress.. These natural supplements will help you in the best way to cover the nutritional deficiencies and get back to balance! They helped me get rid of cholesterol medication!

Do not lower cholesterol because it's needed for our brain and body to function optimally. Make sure numbers are over 200, mid 200 is good.
Although you can eliminate things that are causing cholesterol as a protection from inflammation. Bad salt with sand and glass causes cholesterol. Eliminate it and only use mineral sea salt.

Linda Pearson

Thank you linda. I was looking for some to say you need cholesterol. Cholesterol is also used to respond to inflammation as well. Doctors are using cholesterol numbers as an indicator. Buildup is a problem but high cholesterol doesn't mean build up. So much misinformation in this category.

Jeremiah Waller 3 years

I was working at Pfizer (Warner-Lambert) at the time they were creating Lipitor, the statin drug that lowers cholesterol. Pfizer paid the FDA to have the numbers lowered to say 200 is bad. The lies, misinformation, and propaganda they put out are strong and deep. People died during drug trials of liver failure. People were losing their mind. And still are. Look up Liptor lawsuits. All statin drugs are a scam.

Beta Sisterol. My doctor had prescribed a cholesterol-lowering medication and I refused to take it, although I didn't tell her. I found the Beta-sitosterol and took that instead. When I did my labs a month later I was down by 60 points. My doctor said to me, "I hate to say I told you so." And then I showed her the bottle of what I had been taking. Two days later I got a letter releasing me as a patient for being non-compliant. It's funny how she was fine with my cholesterol being lower until she found out what I had taken to lower it. I guess she's pissed off because she didn't get her kickback from me having the prescription for the drug filled.

Where did you buy this?

CK Marshall Carroll 3 years

There is a great company out of Irvine, California called http://iHerb.com/ I've also seen it on Amazon. They run neck-and-neck in terms of the pricing so it's like six of one or half a dozen of the other.

DanniShannon Lowery 3 years

Thank you

You bet!

That's wonderful. Except that my grandfather had two heart attacks from high cholesterol. Now my husband has it. I'm just trying to prevent him from having a heart attack. I'd like to keep them around a while longer.

Overall cholesterol is greatly misunderstood and I'd suggest really researching the topic before planning a course of action.

I go to a fantastic holistic doctor and he will tell you that if you're fit and eating right, you may just have higher cholesterol than what the standard chart says. It's important to be working with the right people too!

Juice Plus has been proven to do that and much more in nearly 40 clinical studies over the past 20+ years. It's been responsible for completely rebuilding my immune system during my successful cancer journey this past year. It's the most researched nutritional product in the world

Why is it high? High cholesterol is a response to a problem, not a disease itself.

Tracy Landis

I found the cause is different in each person I know that has high cholesterol. For a couple in my family all they needed to do was use kelp to season food instead of salt, use farm "banty" eggs (not store bought) and add more fish oil to their diet. For another, they need major meds plus a diet change. (Too many years with high fat foods and hardly any veggies or fruit) And it was after a quadruple bypass and an unexpected hard attack. Unfortunately, we can't forget that some cholesterol is good and not all doctors have caught up with this idea.... Just my opinion.

Shannon Dow 3 years

Some is good.

serrapeptase.. And cholesterol protects our heart especially when we age

Exercise to dec LDL and inc HDL. But also, oats and garlic as food choices.

Ra Kennedy Mayer

Exercise is excellent. Look into HIIT. Most oats have wheat in them due to processing and if someone is sensitive to wheat that would not be wise.

Sten Cody 3 years

Hmm... Never heard tbis about mainstream oats. Another reason to buy food from reputable sources!

Ra Kennedy Mayer 3 years

Trader Joes (if you have one near you) has gluten free oats.

Do not have meat or dairy in your diet

Andrea Mercado

Got one... Message me if you feel the intuition to do so

Cynthia Booth

Meat and dairy are not bad... İf you get free range organic. If you can find an organic farm near you that is the best way to get it. Do not have the meat and dairy that is in most grocery stores. Also if you are sensitive to dairy then you would want to eliminate that.

Sten Cody

Lmao! If you think meat & dairy are ok, watch this! https://youtu.be/32IDVdgmzKA

James Talbot 3 years

James Talbot Exactly. That is what I was saying. You don't want to commercial meat and dairy.

Sten Cody 3 years

Sten Cody eye don't think humans should be consuming animal products because we aren't originally meant to. We indigenous people were always vegetarians/Vegans.

Plexus Slim. It's clinically proven to do so.

Samantha Pelletier

It has garcinia cambogia, alpha lipoic acid, chromium, a prebiotic called XOS, is sweetened with stevia, and beet root gives it the color. It's very yummy and helped bring down both my cholesterol and blood sugar.

Samantha Pelletier 3 years

veronique The question should be how can I help my family get/stay healthy? I think a lot of people have shown it is not the cholesterol that is the issue. I am a holistic doctor and have a series of health topics on youtube. If you want me to do a video on another topic let me know. Here is a playlist of many topics (click the gear in bottom right to make them play faster) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9E5E9C7650B5D32A

When I changed to a Vegan diet my cholesterol which had been around 240 for about ten years despite eating everything low fat and exercising regularly; quickly dropped to 160 in a bout 6 weeks ....

Greg Foreman

i heard 240 is optimum.. Medical keeps dropping the numbers to get more people on statins...

Christina Rivers 3 years

Agree with Christina Rivers. You need cholesterol for brain health

Sten Cody 3 years

Because cholesterol is so vital, the body does not rely on diet to provide it. In fact, most of the cholesterol in the blood is manufactured in the liver.
