The last time I checked my cholesterol level was high, I am due for my next blood test soon and I am dreading that the results would be similar. Why? I have been a naughty girl and have been indulging in cholesterol raising food.
So what to do? Well, I read that cinnamon works wonders. This delicious spice has been shown by many studies to reduce triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels by up to 25 percent. The main reason for all of this is chromium, a mineral that enhances the effects of insulin, and antioxidants that gather up all the free radicals in your blood.
So I will be making a drink using cinnamon sticks and honey to drink for a week before I go for my blood test.
