Subject: Garlic helps lower cholesterol in diabetes patients
A study recently published in the Pakistan Heart Journal would seem to indicate that eating garlic lowers cholesterol in diabetes patients. The study involved a sample group of thirty patients, with ages ranging from thirty to sixty years old. The patients were administered a dose of three hundred milligrams of a local garlic product for eight weeks, and showed improved rates of cholesterol. It is noted that statins are good for lowering cholesterol, but readers uncomfortable with statins might want to consider red rice yeast, which has also demonstrated effectiveness in lowering cholesterol.
- Researchers recently studied the affect of adding an intake of 300 mg of garlic, to the diet of patients with diabetic dyslipidimia.
- Researchers noted an overall drop in cholesterol, with an uptick in good cholesterol.
- Because Statins, which are a good pharmaceutical option for many high cholesterol sufferers, have negative affects for some, research showing natural substitutes is encouraging.
"A report published in 2017 in Pakistan Heart Journal suggests that eating garlic can help improve the cholesterol status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus."
