We’re about to learn the truth about cholesterol, and we’ll reveal the 8 best Diabetic-Friendly Foods that Lower Cholesterol.

1) Did you know that cholesterol actually protects your cells? You heard that right – cholesterol is used by cell membranes, helping to let in vital nutrients and hormones while keeping out toxins and waste.

2) LDL or low-density lipoprotein is what we refer to as the BAD cholesterol, and HDL, or high-density lipoprotein, is the GOOD form of cholesterol.

3) A 2011 analysis found that participants who consumed dark chocolate for up to 12 weeks significantly reduced both their LDL and total cholesterol levels while maintaining healthy HDL and triglyceride levels.

4) Eggplant has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol thanks to its potent anthocyanin antioxidants, NASUNIN (nas-you-neen) and CHLOROGENIC ACID.

5) Recent human studies showed that participants who ate 2 to 3 medium-sized apples a day saw their total cholesterol levels fall by 5 – 13%, while their LDL levels fell by at least 7%.

6) Okra contains a thick, gluey substance called MUCLIAGE. Studies show that mucilage binds to excess cholesterol and helps flush it from your system, which works to lower your LDL levels.

7) Both oats and barely are nutritional cereal grains that can lower LDL and total cholesterol. A 2016 study found that foods containing whole-grain barley… or various dry-milled ingredients from barley… had positive cholesterol-lowering effects.

8) While they include over 20 beneficial vitamins and minerals, avocados contain zero cholesterol.

9) Oily fish contains omega-3s, which can also slow the growth of harmful plaques in your arteries, reduce blood pressure, improve bone density, and decrease inflammation throughout your body.

10) Most any variety of nut, from almonds, to cashews, to pecans, to pistachios, can work to improve HDL cholesterol while lowering triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels.
