You may wonder what can replace statins and offer the same efficacy. Brazil nuts are the ones that can lower cholesterol levels in the most natural way.
This was confirmed by a conducted study where 10 participants ate a single meal containing one, four, or eight Brazil nuts. The results showed that their cholesterol levels were substantially improved.
The levels of their LDL – bad cholesterol in the blood, were substantially reduced only 9 hours after the consumption of these nuts, almost 20 points within a day. In the case of statins 4 days are needed to provide the same effect.
Researchers continued measuring the cholesterol levels in participants 5 days later, and even after a month, although participants no longer consumed Brazil nuts. The results were amazing, even after a month, the cholesterol levels of the participants were decreased as a result of that single serving they ate.
Now, you may think that this study was funded by the Brazil nut industry, but it is not true, in this case there is no profit involved.
What is even more interesting is the fact that 4 nuts gave better effects than 8 nuts in the reduction of bad cholesterol and the regulation of good cholesterol. So, a serving of 4 nuts is enough dosage for a whole month, or even longer, unbelievable isn’t it?
Researchers maintain that a single serving of 4 nuts is an adequate dosage “without producing liver and kidney toxicity,” referring to the high selenium content of Brazil nuts. Therefore, 4 nuts a month is enough for optimal cholesterol levels.
Commonly we should wait for more conducted studies meaning more involved people, but in this case, we advise you to try it until proven otherwise. 4 nuts a month is nothing compared to the side effects of statins. Moreover, they are tasty, cheap, and safe.
