Green Tea Lowers LDL

by Dr. Trupti Shirole on  November 17, 2011 at 3:44 PM Cholesterol News   - G J E 4
Green tea in the form of drink or capsule helps to cut down the 'bad cholesterol' (LDL cholesterol) by 5-6 points from total cholesterol, according to a US study. Green tea as a drink is more effective than capsules containing the green tea compound- catechins. Catechins reduce the cholesterol absorption in the gut.
