Winter foods often combine fats and carbs, whilst ‘lockdown’ has made this tendency more likely. So what can help redress this as spring starts its slow journey towards us?
HDL (‘good’ cholesterol) is ‘good’ because it helps remove ‘bad’ cholesterol from the veins, arteries etc and thereby remove the dangerous build-up of plaque (and potentially heart attack and stroke). It moves the ‘bad’ cholesterol to the liver for it to deal with.
Foods That Aim To Aid ‘Good’ Cholesterol
Bitter foods and those rich in plant fibre, phytosterols and plants which influence better liver and bile function (heart and circulatory function) will all be good choices.
• Olive oil (organic & 1st pressing e.g. virgin)
• Coconut Oil
• Cabbage and all cabbage family
• All leafy greens
Some of these appear in our ‘Lemon & Artichoke Concentrate’ formula and our PumpBeet Capsules at Herbs Hands Healing, you can always ask for samples. All the above foods will help the liver and gallbladder work properly so that ‘bad’ cholesterol does not build up become stuck, backed up, stagnant and accumulate into high and dangerous levels. (Dr Schulze calls this liver constipation! Very apt).
