Cholesterol: Top 5 Foods To Lower Your Numbers


Diet can play an important role in lowering your cholesterol. Here are five foods that can lower your cholesterol and protect your heart.

By Mayo Clinic staff

Can a bowl of oatmeal help lower your cholesterol? How about a handful of walnuts or even a baked potato topped with some heart-healthy margarine? A few simple tweaks to your diet — like these — may be enough to lower your cholesterol to a healthy level and help you stay off medications.

1. Oatmeal, oat bran and high-fiber foods


Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the "bad" cholesterol. Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes.

Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol. Eating 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal provides 6 grams of fiber. If you add fruit, such as bananas, you'll add about 4 more grams of fiber. To mix it up a little, try steel-cut oatmeal or cold cereal made with oatmeal or oat bran.

MINUM COKE DAN ASPARAGUS BOLEH KELUARKAN BATU KARANG



Buah pinggang (kidney) merupakan organ terpenting dalam sistem perkumbuhan kita dimana ia menghasilkan air kencing, mineral dan metabolit daripada sistem peredaran darah. Biasanya, mineral dengan mudahnya terlarut dalam air kencing dan akan dilepaskan keluar waktu kita membuang air kecil.

Namun kadang kala, atas beberapa sebab yang tertentu ia boleh bertukar menjadi seperti kristal dan membentuk satu jisim pepejal yang melekat pada dinding buah pinggang dan dikenali sebagai batu karang (kidney stone). Saiznya mungkin terlalu kecil atau mikroskopik atau sebesar bola golf.

batu karang
Gangguan buah pinggang dan penyakit Crohn adalah antara yang meningkatkan risiko berlakunya pembentukan batu karang. Dehidrasi juga boleh menyebabkan batu karang terbentuk, kerana kekurangan air dalam badan menyebabkan mineral akan terpisah daripada air kencing di dalam saluran kencing.


Coke dan asparagus boleh menghilangkan batu karang?

Beberapa rakan telah mencuba formula ini dan terbukti berkesan. Caranya adalah:

1. Sediakan 6 can Coca-cola. Minum satu can setiap 20 minit.

Asparagus
2. Stim atau rebus asparagus dan blend sehingga hancur. Minum air ini selepas 5 minit kita menghabiskan coca-cola yang terakhir (can yang keenam).

3. Selepas itu minum air bertapis atau air suling 2 gelas besar.

Tip:

1. Kaedah ini akan lebih berkesan jika dilakukan ketika perut kosong di waktu pertengahan pagi.

2. Banyakkan minum air selepas melakukan perkaran di atas. Ingat air bertapis atau air suling.....

KHASIAT BIJI LABU


Prostate Protection
They promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate.


Improved Bladder Function
In some studies, pumpkin seed extracts improved bladder function in animals.


Depression Treatment
They contain L-tryptophan, a compound naturally effective against depression.


Prevention of Osteoporosis
Because they are high in zinc, pumpkin seeds are a natural protector against osteoporosis. Low intake of zinc is linked to higher rates of osteoporosis.


Natural Anti-Inflammatory
Pumpkin seeds effectively reduce inflammation without the side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.


Prevention of Kidney Stones
They prevent calcium oxalate kidney stone formation, according to studies.


Treatment of Parasites 
They are used in many cultures as a natural treatment for tapeworms and other parasites. Studies also show them to be effective against acute schistosomiasis, a parasite contracted from snails.


Great Source of Magnesium
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds contains 92% of your daily value of magnesium, a mineral in which most Americans are deficient.


Lower Cholesterol
Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol.


Cancer Prevention
The same phytosterols that lower cholesterol also protect against many cancers.

Curry spice 'kills cancer cells'




An extract found in the bright yellow curry spice turmeric can kill off cancer cells, scientists have shown.
The chemical - curcumin - has long been thought to have healing powers and is already being tested as a treatment for arthritis and even dementia.
Now tests by a team at the Cork Cancer Research Centre show it can destroy gullet cancer cells in the lab.
Cancer experts said the findings in the British Journal of Cancer could help doctors find new treatments.
Dr Sharon McKenna and her team found that curcumin started to kill cancer cells within 24 hours.

'Natural' remedy
The cells also began to digest themselves, after the curcumin triggered lethal cell death signals.
Dr McKenna said: "Scientists have known for a long time that natural compounds have the potential to treat faulty cells that have become cancerous and we suspected that curcumin might have therapeutic value."
Dr Lesley Walker, director of cancer information at Cancer Research UK, said: "This is interesting research which opens up the possibility that natural chemicals found in turmeric could be developed into new treatments for oesophageal cancer.
"Rates of oesophageal cancer have gone up by more than a half since the 70s and this is thought to be linked to rising rates of obesity, alcohol intake and reflux disease so finding ways to prevent this disease is important too."
Each year around 7,800 people are diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in the UK. It is the sixth most common cause of cancer death and accounts for around five percent of all UK cancer deaths.
