I recieve emails from Prevention Online. These come weekly and have lots of interesting articles. This was "Posted: Apr 25, 2004". I wanted a safe place to keep it and to share it with the people of Recipezaar. This is posted in the Health Discussions: Conquering Cholesterol. Here is a link for Prevention for cholesterol: http://www.prevention.com/cda/channel2002/0,2469,s1-683,00.html . I like to find tonics and cures that are affordable and use natural ingredients. Sometimes we need prescriptions, but a little prevention may just go a long way. I see a pattern of age and weight as contrubuting factors, besides genes and this is a natural occurance for so many of us. Even if we are within a healthy weight range, we may not be the weight we were when we were teenagers and 20 somethings. I'm thinking this contributes individually and am interested in finding out. I hope this helps somebody!

- Brings it down like nothing else!
I took this every night before bed for 3 months and my cholesterol came down 70 points to under 200 total. Both my doctor and I were surprised. I continue to take it every other night now for maintenance. My doctor was so surprised that he now has the recipe.
Made a batch this evening. I hope to get DH to take this every evening. Will report back with the results.
KissaMew, Although my fiance has not tried this remedy yet, I am aware of Prevention Mag and know how reliable they are. After hearing news today that the love of my life has high blood pressure, it was nice to see that someone took the time to put a remedy like this for people to try. As a regular on RecipeZaar, it is nice to see a sense of community within. I will have to submit back and let you know how this worked out for him over time! We will try this remedy, believe me!
