Drug free way to lowering cholesterol

High cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis (disease of the blood vessels). High cholesterol can be managed with medication, but it can be ultimately managed via diet. Such foods that act to lower cholesterol include: beans, peas, lentils, soy, fish, olive oil, flaxseed, garlic, berries, citrus fruits, cabbage, broccoli, nuts and seeds. Such a healthy diet needs to be supported with exercise, adequate sleep and avoidance of stress.
