Three Ways to Lower Your Cholesterol Levels

These three ways to lower your cholesterol level are surprising!

Oats

Oats and whole grain foods actually seem to bind to cholesterol, in other words they soak up bad cholesterol. Eating a healthy cereal every morning, something like oats, or a wheat cereal, or porridge, can help you to control cholesterol levels by binding to cholesterol within the body and helping to eliminate it in the normal cycle.

Although this is a very simple thing to do it is also very effective and for anybody who seriously wants to lower their blood cholesterol levels, heating more oats is very simple and effective way to do it.

Weight loss

Losing weight gives you that ton of health benefits. Everybody knows that. However, what may not be widely known is that weight in itself seems to increase your cholesterol levels and if you are particularly overweight the likelihood is that your cholesterol levels will be fairly highly elevated as well.

Losing weight is a good way to lower your cholesterol levels and it brings you so many other benefits that no serious discussion can be had about cholesterol without mentioning that weight loss is one of the biggest things you can do for your own health. You’ll feel better, you have more energy, and you lower your cholesterol level as well-what more could you ask for?

Sunshine!

Sunshine and cholesterol

Sunshine is actually a bit of a wonder “cure” for cholesterol because it activates within your skin and it turns cholesterol into vitamin D.

 

It has been estimated that most of us are nutritionally deficient in vitamin D for a variety of reasons. The single most prominent reason is probably that we all spend our time indoors nowadays and don’t get as much sunshine as people used to do when they were outside, working.

This is true particularly in northern countries where there is not as much sunshine. A lack of vitamin D is a serious problem. But the effect on cholesterol should not be underestimated.

Vitamin D uses cholesterol to form itself and some light on your skin stimulates the production of vitamin D, therefore getting a daily dose of sunshine-in a sensible way of course-means that you will be using up some of the cholesterol in your body to make vitamin D.

If you have a look at the other articles on vitamin D you will see that it is being hailed as a real wonder vitamin, because of all the positive things it can do. That means that a simple daily period spent enjoying sunshine will not only give you a massive positive health benefits because of the vitamin D, but will also give you health benefits because it will help to lower your cholesterol.

What’s even better is that it is entirely natural-and free!
