Hot drink lowers cholesterol levels


The body must maintain a delicate balance of cholesterol - too much of the "bad" kind can clog arteries, causing a host of serious health problems.


Fortunately, there is a hot drink on hand to help you lower your high cholesterol levels and that is green tea.


Green tea originates from China, where the leaves are heat treated using the roasting method, and Japan, where the leaves are more commonly steamed.It is exceptionally rich in flavonoids that can help boost your heart health by lowering bad cholesterol and reducing blood clotting. And flavonoids have been shown to have a positive effect on cholesterol. Multiple studies have shown green tea's effect on cholesterol-busting.


A meta-analysis from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicates that green tea significantly reduces total cholesterol, including LDL or "bad" cholesterol in the blood.


However, green tea did not affect HDL, or "good" cholesterol — the kind that counteracts the harmful effects of LDL cholesterol.
