Diet Tips : How to Lower Cholesterol
Hi, this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution
in South Beach, Miami, Florida. In this clip we’re talking about how to lower your cholesterol.
So if your cholesterol is out of balance, then the best thing that you can do is to
try to understand why is it out of balance? And that’s what I emphasize with all of my
clients. So there’s a couple reasons why yours might be out of balance. One could be that
your liver is working too hard. And your liver controls both detoxification as well as cholesterol
regulation. So maybe you’re getting too many toxins into your body. So look at reducing
your sugars and reducing your toxins from things like alcohol and processed foods, and
then on the flip side, look into increasing your antioxidants and reducing your arterial
damage that might be causing your cholesterol levels to go higher than they should. So ways
to increase your antioxidant levels are to start eating more fruits and vegetables primarily,
and look for fruits and vegetables that are really rich in color. So green, purple, red
and orange are all great colors to choose. This is Rachael Richardson and this has been
how to lower your cholesterol.
