Green Tea
By: Diane Joswick, L.Ac., MSOM
There have been some intriguing studies indicating that green tea can be extremely effective in the fight against high cholesterol. Specifically, the beverage reduces "bad" cholesterol and boosts "good" cholesterol, improving an individuals overall cholesterol profile.

In addition, green tea appears to lower overall cholesterol levels, helping to reduce ones risk of developing heart disease. Similarly, green tea enhances cardiovascular health by improving the consistency of platelets in the blood.

Researchers have also found that green tea appears to protect against oxygen-induced damage to bad cholesterol. Drinking green tea also seems to enhance cardiovascular health by improving the consistency of platelets in the blood.
