Probiotics May Lower Cholesterol

A new meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials assessed the effects of probiotics consumption (good gut bacteria that can be found in yogurt) on blood cholesterol levels.  Results showed that a diet rich in probiotics decreases unhealthy cholesterol levels in people with high, borderline high and normal cholesterol levels.

Another reason to include plain organic yogurt in your diet. For more information on how to naturally lower your cholesterol levels, see your Naturopathic Doctor.
