Yogurt – The researchers found that consuming two probiotic doses a day, can lower cholesterol levels, thus cleansing the blood, including cholesterol and total cholesterol.
In previous studies, the formulation contained in the bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri, proven to lower bad cholesterol commonly known as LDL.
The study, led by Mitchell Jones of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, said that scientists have developed a research on the role of probiotics to fight chronic diseases such as heart disease.
Jones said for the first time, one study showed that probiotic formulations can reduce cholesterol levels are ‘evil’ and contained saturated fatty acids in the blood.
People who consume probiotics decreased total cholesterol by 9.1 percent.
Meanwhile, HDL or ‘good’ cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, which is the formation of harmful fats in the body is also changing.
Scientists have suggested that Lactobacillus bacteria can affect cholesterol levels in several ways.
This bacterium is the result of fermentation and formulation to optimize the effects of cholesterol and excess body salts.
“Management of diet for cholesterol patient, asking them to take probiotics at least two to 25 grams a day,” said Jones, as quoted dailymail.
Probiotics are most easily found in yogurt, because food is a fermented milk containing Lactobacillus reuteri bacteria.
