Drink THIS and Watch Cholesterol Fall
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
For decades, we’ve been told that the best way to reduce your cholesterol by taking dangerous drugs like statins.
But as we’ve seen time and time again in Western medicine — taking these drugs can be like playing Russian roulette with your health.
You see, a growing amount of research shows that statins can do more harm than good by weakening your heart and immune systems, and can even lead to devastating memory problems.
Fortunately, an international team of researchers has discovered an all-natural solution that could help lower your cholesterol and even reduce arterial stiffness — a condition that can lead to deadly heart attacks and stroke — without taking statins.
And believe or not, you could already be drinking it.
This powerful cholesterol crusher is bergamot, the tasty citrus fruit that gives Earl Grey tea its signature fragrance and flavor.
For this recent study, researchers gave folks who were already suffering from high cholesterol 400 mg of bergamot extract every day for six months.
At the end of the trial, the participants saw up to a 20 percent reduction in total cholesterol and a 17 percent decrease in triglycerides, while also increasing HDL (good) cholesterol and decreasing LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Even better, after examination with an ultrasound, the scientists found that the bergamot had significantly decreased markers linked to arterial stiffness.
This means taking bergamot daily could help you fight cholesterol naturally and ditch those health-wreaking statins for good while protecting your arteries at the same time!
Additionally, another study shows that bergamot can help battle blood sugar and even activate AMPK, one of the key drivers of a healthy metabolism. When you couple these results with its heart effects, it makes bergamot a go-to supplement for fighting metabolic syndrome, the precursor to diabetes.
You can get a daily dose of bergamot from drinking Earl Grey tea, but it’s likely not enough to shield your heart. Instead, taking a supplement will give you a healthy amount.
Bergamot supplements are sold at natural health stores and through online retailers like vitacost.com.
