Are You Hot on Cholesterol?

by Teresa Valdez on May 29, 2013

Aside from exercising regularly, avoiding trans fats and eating more of the “good” fats such as those found in fish, olive oil and nuts to lower cholesterol, cutting back on your intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates is also encouraged by health professionals, dietitians and conventional wisdom alike.

The annoying thing about this approach to lowering cholesterol, however, is that it involves removing things from your diet. Having a dieting method that makes you feel restricted can discourage you from sticking to it, limiting its effectiveness over the long-term.

But did you know that there’s a way to lower your cholesterol while adding something delicious to your grocery list? It’s true – a hot way to help lower cholesterol is to add a bit of spice to your diet. Spices, such as cayenne pepper, can lower your cholesterol levels.

Not a fan of extremely spicy foods? Not a problem! Many savory herbs and spices are filled with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which your little heart will love, not to mention your joints and the rest of your body. Proven heart-friendly herbs and spices include garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric.
