High Cholesterol: Health Drink Used For Centuries May Help Lower Cholesterol Levels

HIGH cholesterol is an insidious condition and if left untreated could increase a person's risk of serious health complications. Drinking a certain drink, however, could help with all that.


HIGH cholesterol levels are troublesome because it means there's too much "bad" cholesterol floating in the blood - putting your life at risk. However, one particular health drink consumed daily could help to lower your cholesterol.

“Some research suggests that it may also have several health benefits, including blood sugar control, weight management, and improved cholesterol.”

 

“Some evidence suggests that taking apple cider vinegar could help lower both total cholesterol and triglycerides.”

 

“A study investigated the effects of taking apple cider vinegar in people on a low-calorie diet.”

 

“The researchers found that participants who took apple cider vinegar not only lost more weight than those who took a placebo but also had lower triglycerides and total cholesterol.”

 

Studies have found the significant effects a specific drink has on the prevention of high cholesterol.


Numerous studies have indicated that apple cider vinegar helped improve severe risk factors for heart disease including its ability to lower cholesterol levels.


Several animal studies have shown how vinegar can reduce blood triglycerides, cholesterol and blood pressure.


Apple cider vinegar lowers cholesterol due to the contents of pectin in the vinegar which attaches itself to the cholesterol.


Leading health experts believe apple cider vinegar could be used to help lower cholesterol naturally.


In a study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, dietary acetic acid to reduce serum cholesterol and triacylglycerol in fats were analyzed.

The study noted: “To investigate the efficacy of the intake of vinegar for prevention of hyperlipidemia, we examined the effect of dietary acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, on serum lipid values in rats fed a diet containing cholesterol.”


“Animals were allowed free access to a diet containing no cholesterol, a diet containing cholesterol without acetic acid, or a diet containing cholesterol with acetic acid for 19 days.”

 

“Cholesterol feeding increased serum total cholesterol and triacylglycerol levels, compared with the cholesterol-fed group, the cholesterol and acetic acid-fed group had significantly lower values for serum total cholesterol and triacylglycerols.”


 

HDL vs LDL Cholesterol


HDL cholesterol roams the blood to remove harmful cholesterol where it doesn't belong.


HDL cholesterol picks up bad low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and takes it to the liver to be broken down and passed out of the body.


Too much LDL cholesterol in the blood contributes to fatty build-ups in the arteries – also known as atherosclerosis.


Atherosclerosis narrows the arteries and increases a person's risk for heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.


HDL cholesterol, on the other hand, helps to pick up LDL cholesterol and transport it to the liver, where it can be broken down and released from the body via the bladder.
