It does live up to big profits. Patients who take the time to research this and be well-informed will come to understand that they can bring these elevated triglyceride and cholesterol levels down by addressing the cause – a diet that is rich with animal products and skimpy on plant foods. If you start with an average cholesterol of 220, you can realize a reduction of 30 points in 2 weeks with nothing more than this change in diet.

Lowering Cholesterol with Niacin Natural Home Remedy
Niacin or vitamin B3 can be used effectively to lower cholesterol naturally. Niacin was first unveiled in 1954 as a blood fat lowering substance and it was the first substance ever found to prevent heart disease. Niacin is very efficient at favorably modifying several triglyceride and cholesterol characteristics. This makes it ideal for addressing some of the risk factors (signs) that point to risk of having a stroke or heart attack. Niacin works by slowing the manufacture of very low density lipoprotein in the liver. This blocks the flow of fatty acids from the fat tissues in our body while lowering the amount of LDL or bad cholesterol. All the while it will bring triglyceride levels down and increase HDL or good cholesterol. Niacin is the most effective substance available for increasing HDL cholesterol. Common results from taking Niacin are EatLDL down 10 to 25 percent; triglycerides down 20 to 50 percent; HDL up 15 to 35 percent. Even more important, niacin as been shown to substantially reduce heart attacks and total death rate by about 27 percent. Some studies point out that taking niacin along with a drug that binds cholesterol such as Colestipol is more effective than taking “statins.” Click here to read about >lowering cholesterol with niacin in greater depth.
