5 Juicing Recipes For High Cholesterol

5 Juicing Recipes For High Cholesterol

 

People with high cholesterol often resort to cholesterol-lowering medications. These medications harm the liver, especially if you are religiously taking the pills. How do you avoid medication, though? We’ve said it before and we’ll keep on saying it: you can heal your body by eating a healthy diet. Raw fruits and vegetables have powerful healing powers!

 

What Is Cholesterol?

The liver naturally produces about 1,000 milligrams of cholesterol, a lipid, every day. Even if you didn’t eat meat or fried foods, the body would continue to produce cholesterol. Cholesterol is important in the body because it helps to produce sex hormones. It also helps to produce the outer coating of cells and aids with digestion in the intestines.

 

Good Cholesterol vs. Bad Cholesterol:

There are two types of cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). The former is good and the latter is bad. HDL helps to pick bad cholesterol out of blood vessels and transports it to the liver, where it is processed and eliminated. LDL is not good because it clogs blood vessels and arteries, which can lead to cardiovascular diseases.

 

Avoid trans-fats and saturated fats to help naturally lower cholesterol, but it is also recommended to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants work to fight free radicals and prevent oxidation of cholesterol. Try consuming the following juices to help naturally lower cholesterol.
