Medical Research Discovers Foods That Actually Lower Triglycerides


Recent medical research has discovered a number of foods that actually lower triglycerides by themselves. Double-blind studies have proven the effectiveness of these foods and debunked some long held myths. People can actually lower their triglycerides by eating certain foods.

There is a lot of misinformation on the web. For example, numerous websites state that increasing consumption of nuts, especially tree nuts, will lower triglycerides. However recent medical studies have proven that pistachios, almonds and walnuts do not affect those levels. They do provide quite a number of calories, which if someone is consuming more than their body requires, they are actually increasing their triglyceride levels. The problem is that this misinformation gets repeated over and over until it becomes the truth. However, it is not helping anyone get better.

High triglycerides are a significant health risk that increases the possibility of a stroke or heart attack. A recent study shows that people with triglyceride levels greater than 200 mg/dl were nearly 30% more likely to have a stroke than those with normal levels. Stroke is the third-largest cause of death in the United States after coronary heart disease and all forms of cancer. It is a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States. The good news is by simply changing diets, people can help mitigate this significant health risk.

Other than incorporating the correct foods into a diet, there are a number of other things that can be done to help lower high triglyceride levels. First, quit drinking or drink only in moderation. Second, exercise at least 3 times per week. Third, donít over eat. Fourth, consider adding fish oil capsules to the diet.
