High cholesterol levels getting you down

Have you been told you have high cholesterol levels?

Many people find their cholesterol levels rise along with their age. After paying attention to diet and alcohol consumption, herbal medicine can be just what you need.

Key herbs include globe artichoke, milk thistle and dandelion root which aid liver function and may help lower cholesterol levels.

These herbs are suitable for long term use and they will provide added benefits for your health. Herbs are a good alternative for those who are looking for something other than statins.

Provided in liquid herbal tincture form, they can be taken in conjunction with beneficial lifestyle changes such as a nourishing diet and increased exercise.

Globe artichoke (cynara scolymus) has strong antioxidant activity, preventing oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) which can lead to atherosclerosis. It also inhibits cholesterol synthesis. This herb acts as hypolipidemic agent, which means it helps lower blood lipid levels, reducing the risks associated with high cholesterol levels. Other nourishing herbs such as milk thistle and dandelion root are bitters, which help to stimulate the liver function.

For men and women, treatments may vary so advice from a naturopath can be very useful in the long term. Check out our article on men and heart health.
