Cholesterol Level and Nutritional Supplements

Cholesterol level is controllable through intake of healthy foods because healthy foods contain high levels of HDL that help to remove LDL from blood to the liver where it is eliminated. In this article, we will provide the information of how nutritional supplements help in lowering cholesterol.
Nutritional supplements place an important role in lowering cholesterol levels for cost effectiveness and little side effects compared to prescription medications.

Some of the below nutritional supplements have proven record of lowering cholesterol levels:
1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, which means it isn't stored by your body. That makes it even more important to get as much as you need on a daily basic. Vitamin C contains antioxidants that reduce heart attack risk by blocking chemical changes that causes LDL cholesterol to stick to arterial walls and subsequently lowering cholesterol levels.

2. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin which may not help to lower cholesterol levels, but it can help to prevent LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidized and sticking to your artery walls in result of lowering cholesterol levels. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you are taking any blood thinning medications.

3. Niacin
Niacin is one of the water-soluble B vitamins. Niacin lowers the bad LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels while raising the good HDL cholesterol level. People taking niacin to lower serum cholesterol should be closely monitored by their doctor to avoid complications.

4. Magnesium
Magnesium deficiency increases the danger of heart disease and stroke as we mentioned in the previous article. Study shows that adding this mineral to your diet could lower your cholesterol level by 33%.

5. Green tea extract
Green tea extract counters the effect of radication, keeps the pH of blood balanced and is high in antioxidants. Green teas that contain polyphenolic catechins are actually stronger than vitamin E. This helps to prevent LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidized and sticking to your artery walls in result of lowering cholesterol levels.

6. Lutein
Study shows that people that have alot of lutein in their blood stream see no increase in the thickness of their carotid arteries. That means LDL cholesterol have not oxidized causing formation of dangerous plaque at their arteries wall leading to heart attacks and lowering cholesterol levels.
