Overview

If you have high cholesterol, you probably understand the importance of improving your overall cholesterol profile. You may know, too, that diet and exercise are vital factors in the cholesterol equation.

What you may not realize is that specific foods and nutritional supplements, along with certain physical activities and other lifestyle factors, have a direct correlation to healthy cholesterol levels. Research proves it! By introducing these natural remedies into your self-care regimen, you may be able to lower your cholesterol without drugs - safely, effectively, and for life.

In this newly revised and updated edition of Cholesterol Cures by the Editors of Rodale Health Books, you'll discover what the latest research reveals about familiar remedies such as garlic, oats, and fish oil supplements, as well as more recent finds such as grape see extract, pomegranates, and coenzyme Q10. Even better, you'll learn what current studies have to say about "forbidden foods" like red meats, eggs, and dairy. Were you thinking they'd be gone for good? Think again! You can enjoy them as part of a healthy, cholesterol-friendly diet. Cholesterol Cures shows you how.

Inside you'll find:

  • Healthy Indulgences - profiles of dietary treats with surprising cholesterol-lowering benefits
  • The 500-Food Fat and Cholesterol Counter - to guide you to smart food choices
  • The Breakthrough Menu Plan - to help you cut your cholesterol by 30 points in 30 days!
