Why should high cholesterol be a concern:
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that’s found in the fats (lipids) in your blood. While your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells, having high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.
- The body needs a healthy amount of cholesterol for nerve function, cell membrane creation and hormone production.
- When there is a disturbance in the body’s natural use of cholesterol, high cholesterol can be a result.
- High cholesterol can lead to heart disease
- High cholesterol can lead to atherosclerosis (a process of progressive thickening and hardening of the walls of arteries as a result of fatty (cholesterol) deposits on their inner lining), which impedes blood flow to the brain, kidneys, heart, genital and extremities
- The decreased blood flow can deprive parts of the body (brain, heart) of oxygen rich blood. Eventually this can lead to a heart attack or a stroke.
Herbs that Help:
- According to sites like WebMD Turmeric has been proven to be able to reduce low density lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol).
- University of Maryland Medical says; “Studies suggested that turmeric may help prevent atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque that can block arteries and lead to heart attack or stroke.
- In animal studies, an extract of turmeric lowered cholesterol levels and kept LDL (bad) cholesterol from building up in blood vessels.
- Because it stops platelets from clumping together, turmeric may also prevent blood clots from building up along the walls of arteries.”
- Turmeric has an active constituent called curcumin.
- The National Institutes of Health state: Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is a polyphenol responsible for the yellow color of the curry spice turmeric. It has been used in a variety of diseases in traditional medicine. Modern scientific research has demonstrated its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-thrombotic, and cardiovascular protective effects.”
- Lecithin (Phospholipids – PLs):
- Several authors reported a significant total cholesterol lowering effect of lecithin PLs (lecithin) in patients with primary hyperlipidaemia (elevated lipids or high level of cholesterol). (studies listed below)
- After 30 days of treatment, total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol as well as TGs (triglycerides – also bad) were significantly decreased, while HDL (good) cholesterol was significantly increased. (studies listed below)

Remember to eat healthy and exercise, because your diet, lack of exercise, smoking and high blood sugar levels can all attribute to a cholesterol problem. Cholesterol can be managed in some cases without prescriptions. A healthy diet, a good exercise program and the right supplements will help keep healthy cholesterol levels healthy.
Testimonial: “I was shocked when I was unable to get a good insurance policy because I was told I had high cholesterol at age 42. I considered myself a pretty healthy guy. I ride my bike and watch my diet, so I figured I was good. I was told about Grandma’s Herbs Cholesterol and decided to give it a try. For 2 weeks I took CHOLESTEROL and cut out all meat and starches. I lowered my cholesterol so I could get my insurance. I introduced meats and carbs back into my diet, moderately, and still take CHOLESTEROL. I have maintained my healthy level for several years now. The best part for me is, I managed my cholesterol naturally, and I couldn’t have done it without Grandma’s Herbs.”
