Lowering High Triglycerides Levels Naturally

Lowering high triglycerides is essential to heart health: Causes of high triglyceride levels and how to lower high triglycerides levels naturally through diet.

Lowering Triglycerides: DHA Lowers Triglycerides
High blood levels of fats known as triglycerides may increase risk of heart disease. Scientists with the Agricultural Research Service's Western Human Nutrition Research Center have seen triglyceride levels go down in volunteers who ate meals supplemented with a moderately high level of DHA, a polyunsaturated fatty acid. DHA is short for docosahexaenoic acid...Read full article

Cinnamon lowers cholesterol and triglycerides
Cinnamon has been demonstrated to improve blood sugar, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol in a number of studies. Although these studies have involved volunteers with type 2 diabetes, the focus of this article is on the effects of cinnamon on cholesterol and triglycerides. Researchers have sought out nutrients that can simultaneously improve glucose metabolism and lipid levels (cholesterol, triglycerides)...Read full article

Orange Peels Lower Cholesterol and Triglycerides

Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists have recently learned that a compound found in orange oil decreases blood serum levels of the protein responsible for low-density lipoprotein (LDL) that's a major cholesterol carrier...Read full article

Foods That Lower Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Prevent Cancer - Muscadine Grapes
Muscadine grapes are a natural food source for lowering both total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, blood pressure, triglycerides and also protects against coronary heart disease, gastrointestinal diseases, and colon cancer. Research conducted by ARS horticulturist James B. Magee and Mississippi State nutritionist Betty J. Ector predicts that the muscadine will not only be an alternative crop for growers in the Southeast, but a new health food as well...Read full article

High Blood Pressure - Reduce Carbohydrates
Compared with a diet containing more carbohydrates, a diet with greater protein lowers blood pressure, LDL “bad” cholesterol, and triglycerides. “Our results emphasize the impact that diet can have on blood pressure and cholesterol levels, two of the major heart disease risk factors,” said Lawrence Appel, M.D., M.P.H., of Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and lead investigator of the OmniHeart study...Read full article
