6 Juice Recipes That Can Help Lower Cholesterol

There is good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein or HDL) and there is bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein or LDL). HDL helps to control LDL levels and helps keep blood vessels healthy. The goal is to maintain healthy HDL levels because the cells in your body need it. All you have to do is make small changes to get your cholesterol down to a healthy level.

 

The body naturally produces cholesterol, but excess cholesterol is ingested from animal-based products such as meat, dairy, eggs, poultry, or processed meat products. People with high cholesterol may not experience any symptoms; however, leading a lifestyle that causes the accumulation of cholesterol can lead to heart attack.

 

The medication that you have to take to lower cholesterol levels is not good for your liver. This is why it is beneficial to lower cholesterol without medication. Yes, it is possible if you are willing to make some dietary changes. Nearly all fruits and vegetables can help lower bad cholesterol levels because they contain soluble fiber that can absorb cholesterol. Leafy greens help to improve circulation and foods like avocados, mushrooms, asparagus, peas, broccoli, and sweet potatoes flush bad cholesterol form the body.

 

It takes a lot of discipline to naturally lower cholesterol, but it is possible. Juicing can be a step in a healthier direction. We’ve gathered some juice recipes that can help your efforts to lower cholesterol. Don’t be afraid to experiment with some of these recipes!

 

Note: For all of these recipes, all you have to do is place the ingredients, one by one, in a juicer. You should consume the whole juice in one sitting. Once a day should be fine for these recipes.
