How to Lower your cholesterol without Drugs.

November 9, 2012


To have higher HDL, lower LDL and avoid being pushed to an early death by the side effects of statin drugs, here’s what to do:

Step 1) Have fun and give yourself a challenge – Intense, short periods of exertion like I describe in my P.A.C.E. program are the most effective way to increase your HDL. One study looked at Navy personnel going through intense training. After only 5 days, their HDL had increased 31%!2

Step 2) Eat pure, clean foods – Stay away from processed foods and junk foods… especially refined sugars. Instead eat lean proteins and unprocessed carbs, like fruits and vegetables.

Step 3) Drink in moderation – one to two drinks a day are proven to increase HDL. A brand new study followed 4,168 doctors for 14 years. It found the physicians were able to increase their HDL by almost a full 1 mg/dl simply by drinking one serving of alcohol every day.3

Step 4) Take a few good supplements – Taking 50 mg of niacin (vitamin B3) daily improves your HDL. Omega-3s increase HDL as well. You can find omega-3s in grass-fed beef, walnuts, olive oil, cold water fish, and in the world’s richest plant source of omega-3, Sacha Inchi oil. Sacha Inchi has almost 7 grams in each tablespoon full.

Step 5) If you already have some muscle weakness or pain, take 600 mg per day of alpha-lipoic acid. Studies show it prevents or improves nerve conduction, blood flow to nerves and nerve activity, and eases symptoms of muscle soreness.4
