I think the best way to lower cholesterol will be following the Nutritarian diet approach as described by Joel Fuhrman.


Plant sterols also are reported to help with cholesterol.

And here is some info from a previous post.

"The results of five different clinical trials (Table 1) using bergamot in various forms suggest the polyphenol fraction can lower LDL-C and total cholesterol."

Bergamot produces excellent results according to this study.

Bergamot juice was found to reduce cholesterol (29.27%), triglycerides (46.12%), and LDL (51.72%) and an increase in HDL (27.61%) levels versus hypercholesterolemic controls

Aronia berries also help. Eclectic Institute makes an Aronia supplement.

"Dose-response analysis demonstrated a significant reduction in triglyceride levels when dose of Aronia was increased to 300 mg/day. In conclusion, the results demonstrated a significant increase in HDL and reduction in total cholesterol and LDL among patients supplementing with Aronia."

Amla fruit also reduces cholesterol. There are several different Amla supplements available.

"Treatment with Amla for 42 days produced significant decrease in the mean levels of TC (P<0.0001), LDL (P<0.0001), VLDL, and triglycerides (P<0.0002), and a significant increase in HDL (P<0.0002) levels [Figure 1]."
