How to lower cholesterol without medication

Top 5 cholesterol-lowering lifestyle adjustments

Changes in your lifestyle can help you lower your cholesterol and increase the effectiveness of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

High cholesterol raises your chances of developing heart disease and having a heart attack. Medications can assist you in lowering your cholesterol. If you'd prefer to make lifestyle changes to lower your cholesterol first, try these five suggestions.

If you already take drugs to decrease cholesterol, these changes may help them work better.

1. Eat foods that are good for your heart

You can lower your cholesterol and enhance your heart health by making a few dietary modifications.

Reduce your intake of saturated fats

Total cholesterol is raised by saturated fats, which are found predominantly in red meat and full-fat dairy products. Saturated fat consumption should be reduced to lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol or "bad" cholesterol.

Tran’s fats should be avoided at all costs

Tran’s fats are commonly found in kinds of margarine, store-bought cookies, crackers, and cakes, and are occasionally stated on food labels as "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil." Tran’s fats boost cholesterol levels in the body as a whole. The use of partly hydrogenated vegetable oils has been banned by the Food and Drug Administration until January 1, 2021.
