Foods That Can Help Reduce Cholesterol in The Body

Cholesterol is made in your liver and has many important functions. For example, it helps keep the walls of your cells flexible and is needed to make several hormones. However, like anything in the body, too much cholesterol (or cholesterol in the wrong places) creates problems. Here are some foods that can help reduce the level of cholesterol in the body.

1. Garlic.

Garlic is an edible bulb that is used as a cooking ingredient and medicine. It can be eaten raw or cooked. It is also available in supplement form, as a capsule or tablet. Garlic can help lower your blood pressure, reduce your blood cholesterol levels, and slow the progress of atherosclerosis by reducing the level of cholesterol in the body.

2. Flax seed

Flax seed comes from the flax plant. Both flax seed and flaxseed oil contain high levels of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This is an omega-3 fatty acid that may help lower or reduce the level of cholesterol in your body, thereby preventing heart disease.
