Harvard Medical School experts reveal

Ways to lower your chances of heart attack or stroke without medicine, how to reduce cholesterol by 50% or more, the 5 foods that can help sweep cholesterol out of your body — and so much more!

Too much "bad" cholesterol coursing through your bloodstream can cause cholesterol-filled plaques to develop. These deposits not only clog your arteries and slow blood flow, they can break apart and cause a heart attack or stroke.
Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to help keep your arteries from filling with plaque, and even get rid of plaque that is already there. It’s all in a Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School —Managing Your Cholesterol.
You’ll discover:
  • Why your doctor may not be as concerned about your cholesterol "numbers" as he or she once was
  • How elevated blood sugar can damage the lining of your arteries and make your blood more likely to clot
  • Why some margarines that claim to help lower cholesterol may not work for you
  • How walking just two hours a week can cut your chances of dying early from cardiovascular disease by up to 53%
  • The popular ingredient that could make you twice as likely to die from heart disease
  • Why you should get a CRP test — a marker for cardiovascular risk — even if your cholesterol levels are fine
  • And so much more!
Managing Your Cholesterol brings you the best ways to control your cholesterol and improve your heart health. And you’ll get a Special Bonus Section with lifestyle changes you can make to improve your cholesterol levels.
