It is a known fact that people suffering with high cholesterol are at increased risk of coronary heart disease. Taking natural supplements will not only lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglyceride levels, but may also help improve the health of your cardiovascular system. Studies have shown that garlic extract, flax-seed and turmeric tablets have shown to be helpful in on patients with high cholesterol levels. One study showed that patients treated with garlic consistently showed a greater decrease in total cholesterol levels compared with those receiving placebo.1 Fish oil capsules are one of the top-selling products on the market today for one reason; they are effective in maintaining good health. Fish oil is loaded with essential fatty acids known as omega 3, which promotes a healthy heart. Research has shown that triglyceride (fat deposit) levels can be significantly lowered by taking fish oil supplements.2 People who follow a Mediterranean-style diet tend to have HDL or “good” cholesterol suggesting that fish oil can help increase the good cholesterol in your blood. You can take up to 2000 milligram of these capsules every day as part of a healthy diet. Of course, always consult your doctor starting on a dietary supplement. Artichoke extracts can also help the health of the heart according to extensive studies.
