Today we’re going to talk about cholesterol, and I want to cover the seven foods that lower bad cholesterol.
HDL is considered good cholesterol, and LDL is considered bad cholesterol. But, there are two types of LDL. The real villain when it comes to cholesterol and heart problems is a very specific type of LDL.
To measure this type of LDL, you have to ask for a test called an advanced lipid profile test. With this test, they’re looking at the number and size of the particles that carry cholesterol.
The two types, or particle sizes, of LDL, are:
1. The large buoyant (pattern A)
2. The small dense (pattern B)
The small dense LDL particles are the ones you have to be concerned about because they can penetrate the arteries, even though the large buoyant type carries more cholesterol. Small dense LDL is a strong predictor of cardiovascular disease.
This topic can be confusing because some people have low LDL cholesterol but a high number of small dense particles. Others have high LDL with a high number of large buoyant particles. This is why it’s so important to get an advanced lipid profile test, so you have the whole picture of what’s going on.
Top foods that lower bad cholesterol (small dense LDL):
1. Extra virgin olive oil
3. Fish oils or cod liver oil
5. Dark chocolate (sugar-free)
Other things you can do to lower cholesterol naturally:
• Take vitamin B3 (niacin)
• Take TUDCA
