Quality omega 3s
garlic
sterols
niacin





No matter what supplements you take you can't supplement to fix a poor diet. Also genetics are a primary factor.

If your LDL is high, main thing is to clean up the diet. Reduce sugar intake.  Add more fibre into your diet.

I use Dr. Tobias fish oil.  Good ratings,  carlson's audio had good ratings.

I forget the website but they tested them All for freshness, color of oil,  taste. Because apparently there used to be a ton of scam fish oil out there. Oil that was 4-5 years old,  just being sold for premium prices.

That is the right answer. High cholesterol is just an indicator of an underlying condition. Lowering cholesterol is the wrong approach developed by barbaric allopathic practices. The cure for high cholesterol is to clean up diet. Avoid certain things, and ADD missing things like essential nutrients and PLENTY of antioxidants. Usually high cholesterol is an indicative of severe oxidative damage. Too many free radicals, chronic internal inflammation.

I believe, laughing my ass off, that throughout the years reading posts about the same ingredients being used to lower cholesterol through natural ways, the few people hat have had success IS NOT due to some "miracle" effect of these nutrients on cholesterol, but due to the antioxidant properties reducing chronic inflammation and therefore causing a reduction in cholesterol numbers. Still, the solution pass through identifying the main contributing factors to that oxidative damage, wether is nutritional habits, stress, toxic environment, plus the proper essential nutrient intake and high amounts of ORAC points.

Knock out refined fructose (sugar), eat more healthy fats...

Sugar increases triglycerides (and inflammation) which increases production of VLDL, which converts to IDL, and then LDL..

Eventually if LDL lingers too long in plasma it can convert to sdLDL, which has greater likelihood of forming plaque in coronary arteries (if inflammation is present)..

thanks for the advice, I'll look into that video too....

I'm not eating much sugar though, rarely......My Triglycerides are 70-80 (not low enough?).....and my LDL can be sometimes 130-140....maybe even higher.

Also I eat healthy fats around 120-130 gr/day.

Mate LDL alone doesn't give enough informations.
Yo have always to check HDL:LDL ratio and usually less than 1:5 is ok.
I.E. If is HDL 30 then LDL should be <= 150

If you are on orals, you know that you can develop high LDL, but once you will stop them they will go down to normal ranges.

Fibre supplement has been proven to work, 5-15g daily. Also has a beneficial impact on your glucose levels.

Garlic extract at 1g per day has been shown multiple times to lower LDL by 10-20%. It also increases HDL by a ton.

High EPA/DHA fish oil can lower LDL if you don't have high triglycerides, but if you do it can actually increase LDL. However, Omega 3 do great things for HDL.

Niacin also works but requires a 2g dose and it's very hard to take for most people due to niacin flush.

So I know that pysllium which is metamucil has been proven. 5-15g taken prior to bed is best. I'm not sure if overall dietary fibre would work the same. From what I understand pysllium in a high dose turns into a sludge and essentially pulls fibre out of our digestive tract. I could misinterpreting the mechanism.

I take 2 heaping tsp 10-12g depending on the spoon, as much as I remember while bulking.

Its a very interesting video, to understand in detail the way cholesterol works. Watch it in segments. 20 minutes one day, 20 more another day and so on.

You have to focus first in reducing chronic inflammation, not cholesterol. ALL THESE YEARS the approach of allopathic medicine has been WORNG and INCORRECT, because allopathic medicine IS NOT the proper field for chronic symptoms.

As I have used the same analogy many times, trying to lower cholesterol levels is like taking water of a sinking boat with a bucket. You will never finish. Why? because the problem is not the water, is the whole in the boat. Plug the whole and then worry about the water. Here is the same. The problem is not cholesterol. The problem is inflammation. And the same factors contributing to chronic inflammation rise triglycerides at the same time so its a chain reaction.

Fix your nutritional habits and environmental factors, that will combat immflamuation AND as a side effect, will improve cholesterol levels.

HDL:LDL ratio tells you nothing about cardiovascular risk, sdLDL, oxidised LDL, glycated LDL seem to be major components of a sterol in arterial wall macrophage induced plaque..
Triglyceride is a major indicator of the presence of sdLDL, and a decreased levels of functional HDL...

Dietary fructose initiates high triglycerides, which in turn result in high sdLDL, and lower HDL, knock out fructose, and increase fats to significantly lower cardiovascular risk factors..

If you look at Triglycerides, if >1.5 then LDL will be mostly sdLDL and high, also HDL will be low... This is an easier way of working out whats happening without expensive  tests for:

Total Cholesterol/HDL <4.0 nmol/l
Triglycerides/HDL  <0.87
Non-HDL [ApoB100] <4.1
Fasting glucose  <5.3
HbA1c <5.0
Lp(a) mass <30 mg/dl
hs-CRP <1.0 mg/l
Lp-PLA2 <200 ng/ml
Cardiac Myeloperoxidase <480 pmo/l

maybe I've missed something?......

If you look at Triglycerides, if >1.5 then LDL will be mostly sdLDL and high, also HDL will be low... This is an easier way of working out whats happening without expensive  tests for:

Total Cholesterol/HDL <4.0 nmol/l
Triglycerides/HDL  <0.87
Non-HDL [ApoB100] <4.1
Fasting glucose  <5.3
HbA1c <5.0
Lp(a) mass <30 mg/dl
hs-CRP <1.0 mg/l
Lp-PLA2 <200 ng/ml
Cardiac Myeloperoxidase <480 pmo/l
