When the level of cholesterol in the blood increases, it causes a number of health problems and leads to a large number of serious diseases. What is, therefore, advisable to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood?

There are dietary habits that can help to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood. A large amount of niacin, which is also known and called nicotinic, reduces the level of low-density of lipoproteins (LDL) and high-saturated lipoprotein (HDL).  Also, it was found that vitamin C raises the level of highly-saturated lipoproteins in elderly people.

As far as vitamin H, one of the studies conducted by the French researchers discovered that taking five hundred milligrams of vitamins H every day, for a period of ninety days, greatly increases the high-saturated levels of lipoprotein (HOL) in the blood. The researchers said: “The results confirm the usefulness of vitamin H at persons suffering from high levels of cholesterol in the blood.”

It is the same case with calcium. If you are consuming food rich in it, it is good for the bones (skeleton) and the heart. Taking one gram of calcium per day for eight weeks reduced the cholesterol levels by 4.8% in those people who suffer from high cholesterol levels.

You should also take into account the weight. Each time, when the body weight increases, the level of cholesterol in the body also increases. In Netherland is carried out a study which lasted twenty years and it showed that the increase of body weight is an important factor that affects the level of cholesterol in the blood.

Further, you should use olive oil, because it is, as some other foods such as walnuts, almonds, avocados, peanuts, etc., rich in one particular type of fat: monounsaturated fat, which is a feature that does not affect the level of cholesterol in the blood, and thus regulate his level.
