Pamela, an audience member told Dr Oz that she had high cholesterol. A few years ago, her cholesterol levels read 220 and today, she was down to 215 but she still needed help. (For those that don’t know too much about cholesterol levels, both of Pamela’s numbers are not good!) Some foods that help you lower cholesterol include:
Garlic Edamame Lowers Cholesterol
-helps reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol
Dr Oz: Niacin Lowers Cholesterol
-strong in B vitamins
-raises HDL (good cholesterol)
-take 500 mg to 2 g per day
-always check with a doctor before taking
Dr Oz: Psyllium Lowers Cholesterol
-psyllium is contained in Metamucil
-has the highest amount of fiber
-Take 3 doses of Metamucil per day with 8 oz of water. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner)
When you drink Metamucil, it forms a thick gel inside your bowels. (Believe it or not, this is what you want.) When we eat foods high in cholesterol, the cholesterol moves into the bowel with the Metamucil (Psyllium). As your body processes the cholesterol, it gets sucked out. As the concoction in your bowels get thicker, you have to go to the bathroom to release it out (poop). The concoction should come out slushy. This is the result of the Metamucil trapping cholesterol and sucking it out of the body, therefore your body does not absorb it.
