Can a Starch-Smart® diet help lower high cholesterol?
Elevated cholesterol, which is one of the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, kills over one million people every year. That's the bad news, the good news is that a Starch-Smart® diet can lower high cholesterol just as well or perhaps better than using statin medications. Dropping cholesterol levels can be seen in as little as one week after switching to a Starch-Smart® diet with dramatic results seen after just a few short months. Using this aggressive nutritional and lifestyle approach has been proven to be the most effective method of reducing cholesterol without any negative side effects that are associated with taking statin medications. With strict adherance, patients can expect a 20% - 45% reduction in total cholesterol levels. No other type of dietary approach has been shown to produce astounding results such as these.
