How To Lower Your Cholesterol Naturally

You just got your cholesterol numbers back? And now you’re wondering how to lower your cholesterol naturally?

Some people have a chance to bring their cholesterol numbers down naturally, before their doctor prescribes medication. Or some who already have a prescription in hand want to bolster the work the meds are doing and add some natural solutions, too, to really make a difference in those numbers.

Thankfully, there are several natural ways to lower cholesterol naturally, all focused on (1) eating the right foods to prevent artery plaque buildup, and (2) exercising to keep blood pumping healthfully through those arteries.

Here are some tips:

Foods to add to your day:

  • Flaxseeds — Flaxseeds have been shown to have strong cholesterol-battling properties. They add a slight nutty taste to batter, cereal, salads, and more. Be sure to use ground flaxseed instead of whole flaxseed to get the full cholesterol-fighting affects.
  • Oatmeal – Try it in the morning with some dried fruit added, or even try it as an afternoon snack with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a tiny drizzle of syrup. Oatmeal is a great superfood to help lower cholesterol. You can also add oatmeal (or oat bran for baking) to cookie dough, pancake mixes, and more. It’ll give you extra cholesterol-fighting punch!

Exercise to add to your daily activities:

  • Do push-ups or sit-ups during commercials during your favorite TV show.
  • Walk up and down a flight of stairs for 10 minutes (in your home, at the mall, in your apartment, etc.).
  • Walk your dog, or a neighbor’s dog (or both!) every day.
