Is there a home remedy to help lower high cholesterol?

The attempt to start bringing down cholesterol levels begins with the first step, which is losing excess weight. If you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, the healthiest way to lose weight is to exercise for about 30 minutes every day. A brisk walk is the best way to begin any kind of exercise. You can start with 10 minutes and gradually move up to 30 minutes. After a point, it will also help considerably to add a routine of Yoga to your exercise program. This will help you to keep the weight off as well.

The next step to cut cholesterol is to make certain changes in your dietary habits. You would need to eliminate oily, fried and fatty foods from your diet completely. This is the first step that will stop from any additions to your cholesterol count instantly. Prolonged abstinence will gradually bring your cholesterol levels down. It is essential to avoid red meat, which is considered to be very high in cholesterol. If you must eat meat, try to stick to sea food, chicken or egg whites. You should also opt for cooking methods like grilling, broiling or roasting. Include leafy green vegetables in every single meal. Switch to olive oil for cooking, as it is cholesterol free. Switch to skim milk instead of whole; the latter will add to cholesterol.
