Points - Ask the Doctor

Q: Are there herbs that can help lower my cholesterol levels?


A: Below are some herbs that can help:

  • White willow bark, the natural origin of aspirin, shares similar properties of keeping blood platelets from clumping and clotting abnormally.
  • Garlic, considered an herb in Chinese medicine, has been shown to improve cholesterol and lower blood pressure. According to the National Health and Medical Research Council, consuming half to one clove of garlic daily may reduce cholesterol by nearly ten percent. Your breath might suffer, but your heart will thank you.
  • Make tea from these herbs: chrysanthemum, hawthorn, cassia, lotus, mulberry, and peppermint. Drink 3 cups a day. This formula includes herbs traditionally used in Chinese medicine to help support healthy cholesterol.
