It's not that I think medication is wrong, but due to the side effects (both known and unknown) of the statin drugs on the market, it only makes sense to use a natural approach.
Bringing down your cholesterol levels naturally really is not difficult, and ultimately will give you more energy, help you lose weight, and improve the quality of your life, none of which can be done by taking medication.
Here are 3 easy steps you can take to get you started with naturally lowering cholesterol.
The most effective thing you can do to bring down your cholesterol is to make changes in your diet.
These are changes we all know we should be making anyway.
For instance, it is important to cut out saturated fats and processed oils.
It is best to completely eliminate beef, pork and fried foods until your cholesterol readings are in the acceptable range.
Later on, you can return to eating lean cuts of beef such as tenderloin and sirloin.
While cutting back on saturated fat, also begin increasing the amounts of fruits, vegetables, and nuts in your diet.
These high fiber foods are extremely effective at reducing cholesterol readings.
The second step for you to take involves taking a cholesterol supplement.
Supplements containing plant sterols, minerals and other natural substances known to reduce blood lipids can provide the same results as statin drugs without the side effects.
Thirdly, cut back on the amount of alcohol you consume.
Alcohol consumption can have a huge effect on cholesterol and triglycerides, especially if you have more than 2 alcoholic beverages per day.

Basically, naturally lowering cholesterol means developing a healthier lifestyle.
A lifestyle of sitting in front of the television, eating high fat snacks, fast food, and red meats is a recipe for disaster.
