I need a fast way to help my husband lower his cholesterol. It seems we can reduce his health insurance premium hundred of dollars a month by lowering his cholesterol.

  • Here goes this is what I do all day at work lol and if you have any more question just PM me hopes that help some.

    getting atleast 30 min of exercise 5 times a week or more, by walking, dance, tennis, swimming laps, riding a bike, simple things to get moving
    Cut out red meat, fried food, sweets, eggs, watch salt content
    Meat more fish, whole grains, beans, fruit, veggies, bake and grill foods.
    watch the fats in ur foods you eat cause that goes to the LDL and TG levels.

  • Cut out butter and other saturated fats, add whole grains like old fashioned oatmeal and whole wheat bread. Also, excersise will help a lot.

  • Cheerios. It's been in commercials for a decade now that they help lower cholesterol. Worth a try. GL!

  • the OTC Niacin should not be used to lower CL cause its not FDA approved for CL but as a diet supplment.

    Just wanted to make sure you know that there is a difference in the too some people dont, but OTC Niacin is also in drinks like red bull, so that tells u that its not for true CL.

    Fish oil is also a good one but make sure u ask his doctor before he starts takeing them if he is on any medications.
