It can be difficult for most of us to avoid high cholesterol foods. The bad (LDL) cholesterol is in so many processed foods it becomes a chore just to check nutritional labels for each and every item we purchase at the grocery store. Add to that the prevalence of fast food restaurants on just about every block in any city. While they might advertise healthy options to get you in the door, it can be an internal struggle to cave-in and order French fries and burger instead of the salad. Most salad dressings used by fast food restaurants are naturally high in cholesterol.
Even your favorite dine-in restaurant serves foods that are high in cholesterol. Most upscale eateries will use butter to add flavoring to the food. Butter is naturally high in cholesterol. It is perfectly acceptable to treat yourself to a burger and fries or a fancy meal once in a while. However, these foods should not be consumed daily and by no means should be your primary diet.
When faced with high cholesterol there are a number of things you can do to help your body get rid of the bad cholesterol and increase the good (HDL) cholesterol. One natural remedy you can use is grape seed extract. Grape seed extract can be found in supplement form tablets or capsules at your local health food store. Grape seed extract also comes in a liquid form, also found at your local health food store. Regardless of which format you prefer, it can be taken daily to help reduce high cholesterol levels.
If you are using the tablets or capsules you should take these with a full glass of water, preferably in the morning and on an empty stomach. If you decide to use the liquid extract instead, you can add several drops to water or hot herbal teas or even in your morning oatmeal.
When using the liquid grape seed extract you take this several times throughout the day. You should sip on the water or hot herbal tea rather than drinking it down all at once to get the best effects.
