Plant Con­cen­trate LOW­ERS CHOLES­TEROL

Better Nutrition - - TREND WATCH -

Cap­sules con­tain­ing con­cen­trated fruit and veg­etable juices can help re­duce choles­terol and un­healthy lev­els of chronic in­flam­ma­tion, ac­cord­ing to a study of 56 over­weight peo­ple age 40 and older. Re­searchers at the Univer­sity of New­cas­tle in Aus­tralia noted that phy­to­chem­i­cals in plants are known to coun­ter­act in­flam­ma­tion and can re­duce health risks for chronic dis­eases among older adults who are over­weight or obese. The study was pub­lished in the jour­nal Nu­tri­tion. Many green pow­ders and some mul­tivi­ta­mins con­tain con­cen­trated fruits and veg­eta­bles or juices.
