Herbs to lower Cholesterol

Herbs can be very effective in maintaining normal cholesterol levels. Herbs not only can help lower LDL, triglycerides and lipids but can at the same time raise HDL levels. There have been several research studies documenting the benefits of herbs in lowering high cholesterol levels. The antioxidant properties of herbs and spices are also of particular interest due to the impact of oxidative modification of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the development of atherosclerosis. The other major benefit of herbal remedies is that side effects that statin drugs produce can be avoided.

The following herbs have received a lot of attention in cholesterol lowering research:

  • Guggul or Shuddha Guggulu - This herb is considered by many to be the most effective in lowering overall cholesterol levels including LDL, trigyclerides and lipids. It has also been shown that Guggul raises HDL levels. Guggul has also been shown to burn fat. Guggul has been shown to lower cholesterol levels by as much as 27%
  • Garlic - Consuming garlic can reduce cholesterol levels in the range of 10-20%. In fact garlic is a licensed medicine in some European countries for atherosclerosis. Cholesterol lowering benefits have been shown by consumtion of one garlic clove a day.
  • Arjuna herb - This herb helps eliminate cholesterol by increasing the turnover of LDL-cholesterol in the liver. It lowers beta-lipoprotein lipids and helps in the recovery of HDL components in hyperlipidemia.
  • Garcinia - Garcinia contains 16-30% (_)-hydroxycitric acid by dry weight. This active ingredien (_)-HCA has been shown to suppress both appetite and the formation of fats and cholesterol in the liver. It also causes an increase in LDL receptor activity in liver cells that can remove LDL cholesterol.
  • Fenugreek - Fenugreek is used as flavoring in many asian curries and clinical studies show that it has a fiber called mucilage that helps in lowering cholesterol.
  • Artichoke - The extract of artichoke leaves has been found in some studies to lower cholesterol by 18.5%.
  • Licorice - Licorice root extract contains a compound glabridin that slows the oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL). Licorice however should not be consumed in large quantities.
  • In addition to herbs foods rich in soluble fiber are also very useful in reducing cholesterol levels.
