What dietary changes and supplements effectively lower LDL cholesterol?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A low-fat diet reduces low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), especially when the diet is rich in unsaturated fats (SOR: A, meta-analysis). Supplementing with 2 g phytosterols or phytostanols daily, 67 g of nuts daily, and probiotics daily reduces LDL-C (SOR: B, lower quality meta-analyses).
