Cholesterol is a non-water substance that is soft and waxy. Our body readily produces this soluble element in sufficient amounts based on what we need.

Cholesterol isn’t all that bad as it comes in two types: high density and low density lipoproteins. HDL is the good cholesterol, while LDL is the bad one particularly if it is in high concentration in the body.

Bad cholesterol can contribute to heart disease, brain aneurysm, and stroke. The good thing about cholesterol is that it can be maintained in healthy levels without the use of medication. Through a healthy lifestyle, you can control your cholesterol levels. Know what foods to consume and those that you need to avoid. Losing weight also helps and juicing is a perfect way to lose weight and maintain healthy cholesterol level. Here are very easyjuice recipes that help you with your cholesterol problem:
