To get the full benefits from your greens, eat 1 C of raw mustard greens or ½ C of cooked greens per day. Doing so will help you lower your cholesterol by 15%.

Comments to Dr Oz: Glucomannan Supplements & Dark Chicken Lower Cholesterol

  1. Hi. My twenty-four old daughter has extremely high cholesterol and an extremely high particle count, due to a genetic aberration. On today’s show (1/19/12), “Dr. Li pointed out, dark chicken meat is actually better for your heart and can reduce your chances of a heart attack.” However, this statement seems to go against all evidence I’ve read concerning white meat versus dark meat. Is there clinical evidence to support this? We’ve been extremely proactive concerning her diet and the addition of supplements (besides her prescribed statin), plus exercise. Please comment and thanks, for the great show (as always)!
