Maintaining cholesterol levels is a very difficult task for anyone. Explore these ayurvedic tips to lower cholesterol naturally.
- Onions contain high levels of quercetin, an important flavonoid that reduces cholesterol. High concentrations of the compound quercetin hinder the oxidation process of LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol, which help prevent the negative effects of this type of cholesterol.
- Grind an ounce of Methi (Fenugreek) and coriander seeds. Mix a tablespoon of it with a glass of water and have it at bedtime.
- Cinnamon is a powerful anti-oxidant. Studies have shown that the addition of cinnamon to your diet can help lower “bad” cholesterol levels. Simmer a stick of cinnamon in water for about 10 minutes. Drink this once or twice a day. Cinnamon is believed to lower blood sugar (Type-2) and cholesterol.
