For lowering cholestrol you have to keep check on your fat intake and bodily activity also. Have more vegetables and the herbs that reduce fat can be added in diet and also as medicine. Lashun / garlic is the fore most that reduces fat and having one or two cloves daily on empty stomach will keep a check on your cholestrol. Guggul is the other gum that maintains cholestrol. Just one cap. Lipan { Ban Labs} will make it normal. Have no worries, just add brisk walk in your routine.
