Re: 35 and high cholesterol

Make sure ALL your beef is Grass Fed and your eggs come from a local farmer. The omega 3's in a farm raised egg is about 5-6 times higher than a store bought egg and that includes the bogus ones they say are cage free. The above along with 4 grams of fish oil a day has all my blood work looking great.

Re: 35 and high cholesterol

Good point Joseph. But for those who cant get ground fed, or cant afford it, just get more omega3 oil, no capsules, oil!

And those from usa, make sure meat is from animals that are not fed with antibiotics and/or hormones.

Re: 35 and high cholesterol

Red yeast rice pills with some CoQ10 helped me immensely Dropped 30 points in a month. Balanced out other levels.

Well I used to say that myself. But ask yourself this. Can you put a price on health, longevity and possibly extending your life by 5, 10, 20 years? GF beef costs me exactly $1 per pound more than beef without hormones or antibiotics. Cut out one cup of coffee per day and it pays for itself.

But please believe me I'm not arguing with you. I'm just 42 yrs old and when I was younger I thought the same thing.

Re: 35 and high cholesterol

I know what you mean, I am in same position.

But in my country, ground fed mest is almost impossible to get and Id have to buy it bulk and order it a few month ahead.
Luckily im from europe where the use of antibiotics and hormones is illegal.
