    Hi Baskarhomeo,

     

    I'm sure you've found an answer to your question already, but I wanted to chime in here in case an answer can help someone else.

     

    There are many treatments that people claim help lower cholesterol, but it's important to remember that you should talk to your healthcare provider about these options before starting them. They may interact badly with other medications, for example, or they may simply not work effectively enough for your health problem.

     

    Some of the most common treatments on the market contain ingredients like garlic, red yeast rice, or a gum resin called guggulipid. In addition, plant stenols are often touted for helping lower cholesterol. And, of course, the most important thing you can do to lower your cholesterol naturally is to lose weight and maintain a healthy diet.

     

    Doctors also often put people on prescription niacin, which you can read more about here.

     

    I hope that helped!
