Lower Cholesterol With Citrus

 

 

Citrus fruits are excellent for Vitamin C, antioxidants, and bioflavonoids. Combined with nutrients from Vitamin E it's an unbeatable combination to lower cholesterol levels without drugs.

A study at the the Universities of Guelph and Western Ontario showed that a combination of bioflavonoids and tocotrienols lowered total cholesterol levels by 30 percent while the ratio of LDL to HDL was improved by 29 percent.

With the dangers of side effects from cholesterol drugs on the increase, nutritional therapy is a safe alternative.
