Re: Cholesterol levels are in wrong in every Direction
For some of us with genetically high cholesterol diet and exercise alone often won't "cut it". You could also add supplementation, which has worked very well for me! You would get these supplements at a HFS or vitamin store
To lower LDL: Red Yeast Rice - Nature's Plus best brand
To raise HDL: Flush Niacin - you have to start very slow with a very low dose, like 50 to 100 mg. because of the flushing effect. Then you would very slowly raise the dose over months so that you are eventually getting about 1200 to 1500 mg. a day. But as I said, you have to ramp up in small increments.
There are also many posts on this board about this if you want to do a search.
