Foods that lower cholesterol
A blood test can tell you whether you have high cholesterol. If your cholesterol is high, a health professional can help to recommend any adjustments that can help lower it naturally. Or in some cases they may prescribe medication, such as statins.
New year diet
Like any diets that gain sudden popularity, it’s important to speak to a health professional before changing your eating habits. Making smaller changes to your eating habits is the safest and most effective way to stay healthy.
Vitamins and supplements
