Lowering LDL Cholesterol Levels


LDL is the bad cholesterol - it's the cholesterol that we want to have low levels of. Optimal is under 100 mg/dL. How do you lower your LDL levels?

Garlic
Garlic is really healthy for you! Try to find ways to incorporate garlic into your daily menu. Garlic pills might seem nice - but you get the best benefit from the real thing.

Olive Oil
Olive oil is just so good for you. Get into the habit of having a salad with oil and vinegar on it before every dinner. It'll be really healthy for you, and the olive oil will help with your LDL levels.

Almonds
These nuts have natural oils in them that can really help with your cholesterol levels.

Exercise / Lose Weight
Many studies have shown that your LDL levels naturally fall as you lose weight. If you're on a low carb diet, keep working on it! Each pound that you lose is going to help with your LDL levels.

Avoid Trans Fatty Acids
Trans fatty acids - the things that fast foods are fried in - can really raise your LDL levels. Keep far away from these! Check nutrition labels on cookies or crackers to make sure you're not taking in any by accident.

Omega-3 / Fish
It's incredibly important to have a good amount of seafood in your diet in order to lower your LDL levels. While some people try to just have fish oils, you get much more benefit by having the actual fish.
