Mailbag! Asian Secret Blasts Cholesterol

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

You’ve got questions…

We’ve got answers!

Once your cholesterol numbers start creeping up, you know it’s a matter of time before your doctor recommends statins.

And with all the side effects that come with these drugs, that’s a conversation you don’t want to have.

Fortunately, researchers have just discovered a natural substance that can help lower your cholesterol and maybe even keep you out of the danger zone.

Let’s dive in…

Hey Natalie,

I went to the doctor last week and found out my “bad” cholesterol is little high. I eat right and exercise five days a week, but can’t seem to get it into the normal range. Do you know of anything natural I can to take to lower my cholesterol? I really don’t want to end up on a statin.

Thanks!

Bill W.

Great question, Bill.

Many folks are in limbo with their cholesterol levels but don’t want to have to rely on Big Pharma to keep them healthy.

There are all sorts of supplements that can help you fight cholesterol — fish oil, red rice yeast and garlic, to name a few.

Now an international team of scientists has uncovered another cholesterol-busting breakthrough called konjac glucomannan, a special fiber extracted from the root of the elephant yam.

Konjac glucomannan has been a go-to remedy in Southeast Asia for centuries and has been shown to help you lose weight.

But that’s not all it can help you do…

In a recent meta-analysis, scientists reviewed 12 randomized clinical trials that focused on how konjac glucomannan affected LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in adults.

After sifting through all of the data, the researchers made an incredible discovery…

Folks who were getting 3 g of konjac glucomannan daily saw a 10 percent drop in their bad cholesterol levels!

Think about it — a 10 percent reduction in your LDL cholesterol could be the difference that saves you from a lifetime of taking dangerous drugs.

You can get konjac glucomannan at natural health stores or through online retailers like Pipingrock.com. It’s available in capsule and powder forms. Be sure to get a 3 g dose every day to keep your bad cholesterol at bay.
