B Vitamins can help reduce high cholesterol level in the body. While B Vitamins are available as supplements from you local pharmacy or health foods store, B Vitamins are naturally occurring in many of the foods we already eat. There is no need to have to buy supplements when you can eat healthy foods instead.
B Vitamins are found naturally occurring in many different foods. Some general rules of thumb to follow is to never deep fry your foods. Deep fried foods are a cause of high cholesterol. You should broil or bake your meats and not add any breading and remove skins from poultry. You should steam your vegetables rather than boiling, since boiling releases the vitamins from within the vegetables. You should consume only small amounts of dairy products and they should be low fat. You should avoid adding salt to any food and purchase either fresh or unsalted products. If you are allergic to gluten you should avoid wheat products. You should avoid eating egg yolks as these are high in cholesterol.
The lists of foods that contain B Vitamins include lean cuts of beef, fish, chicken, turkey, beans, beets, peas, whole grains, wheat germ, soy beans, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, cauliflower, leafy green vegetables, eggs, yogurt and milk. While there are other foods that contain B Vitamins, they may also cause high cholesterol and should be avoided. For example organ meats like livers and kidneys contain B Vitamins but can contribute to increasing bad cholesterol levels.
The B Vitamins work to not only help lower the bad (LDL) cholesterol levels, but also help to boost the good (HDL) cholesterol levels. It is important when reducing bad cholesterol to also increase the good cholesterol. Higher HDL cholesterol level in the body will actually work to remove LDL cholesterol from the body naturally.
While all the B Vitamins help reduce high cholesterol, the one that works the best in niacin. Niacin increases HDL levels the most out of the other B Vitamins. Niacin also helps to reduce triglycerides. High levels of triglycerides can increase the risk of heart disease.
