Natural Remedies for High Cholesterol

One of the strongest natural remedies for high cholesterol is a combinations of plants with cholesterol-lowering effects: Celandine, Birch and Artichokes.

Follow a cure for at least 30 days with these herbs, taken in the form of tinctures, mixed in equal parts. Take 1 spoonful of the mixture diluted in half a cup water, half hour before each meal.

Besides its other important properties, such as choleretic (stimulates bile production by the liver), cholagogue (stimulates gallbladder contraction to promote bile flow), antispasmodic and analgesic, antibacterial and antiviral, Celandine has also cholesterol-lowering action.

Birch tea favors the elimination of cholesterol from the body.

cholesterolBirch leaves have diuretic (increase the discharge of urine) and diaphoretic (produces perspiration) action without causing kidney irritation. Birch tea helps eliminate toxins from the body, through the strong diuresis it produces.

Also, the leaves have choleric and antiseptic properties and therefore favor the elimination of uric acid and cholesterol in the body.

Artichokes (Cynara scolymus) lowers cholesterol and helps the liver. Artichoke tea stimulates the metabolism of cholesterol in the liver.

Artichokes preparations stimulate cholesterol excretion through bile, lowering blood cholesterol levels and stimulate appetite.

Plantain (Plantago) and Speedwell (Veronica officinalis) teas are also very good natural remedies for high cholesterol.

Many people with a healthy diet recorded high cholesterol levels due to stress. Speedwell tea can help because it is a good sedative, indicated in depression, agitation, nervous states, etc. Drink for at least 1 month.

Plantain decreases fat absorption in the intestine, thus preventing high cholesterol.

The recipe for both teas is the same - 1 teaspoon of herb to one cup boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes, then strain. Drink 2 cups of tea per day.

Hawthorn (Crategus monogyna) lowers cholesterol and reduces fat deposits on artery walls.

Take 3-4 tablespoons of Hawthorn powder per day, in course of 48 days, with a break of 7 days.

Green or black tea prevents artery occlusion and prevents cholesterol deposition.

Drink 3 cups of tea daily to reduce heart injury. Be careful though, not to exceed this dose, because, in excess, green or black tea may reduce iron absorption in the intestine, which could hurt anemic people and pregnant women.

Food and spices as natural remedies for high cholesterol

Garlic cloves contain a sulfur compound called Allicin, responsible for the flavor, which significantly decreases cholesterol.

Regular intake of Thyme reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and reduce blood triglyceride levels, thereby preventing cardiovascular disease. Therefore, use thyme in food as a spice and, additionally, take 3 g of powder daily for 6 weeks.



Mustard seeds, swallowed with water, will lower LDL. Take 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds 3 times daily, 30 minutes before meals. Put the seeds on your tongue and swallow them with water, without crushing them.

After about 3 weeks cholesterol will reach normal levels, and after about 4 months blood lipids levels will also normalize.
