I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Is there a way to reduce cholestrol besides drugs?

Besides the obvious like less meat intake. When thats just not enough, because your body itself is making too much. Is there a way to get your body to make less cholesterol? Is there any special/ miracle food for this? lol obviously i meant prescription drugs. lol i dont think illegal drugs will reduce cholesterol, im not dumb you know.

OATS have soluble fibre that help to reduce cholestrol, scours the vessels. (stay away from high processed foods with chemical additives that may give you other problems...for example, Cheerios has "TSP" Tri-Sodium Phosphate in it to keep it crunchy, the same chemical you get from a hardware store or paint store to clean grease off your driveway. If you wonder where your heartburn comes from it could just be from that.) and OLIVE OIL, helps dissolve the deposits of, or remove excessive amounts of bad cholestrol and flax bread or good old fashioned cod liver oil, or halibut liver oil, or salmon. True, the omega fatty acids also help a lot.
