Vegetable Juice Aids PCOS Women by Lowering Cholesterol
Do you have PCOS and high cholesterol? This article may interest you.
The effects of a canned mixed green vegetable and fruit beverage, containing broccoli and cabbage as main materials, on serum lipid levels in hypercholesterolemic patients were investigated. Thirty-one adult subjects were administered two cans of the beverage (160 g/can) per day for 3 weeks. Their serum total cholesterol (TC) levels significantly decreased from 6.7 to 6.1 mmol/L, and, more strikingly, the level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) significantly decreased from 4.4 to 3.8 mmol/L. Thus, daily consumption of this mixed green vegetable and fruit beverage may be useful in lowering serum TC and LDL-C levels in hypercholesterolemic patients.
Quite a number of PCOS women are fighting high cholesterol. Drinking vegetable juice and eating more vegetables is an incredibly simple and inexpensive way to help manage your cholesterol. The people in this study had an average 9% drop in total cholesterol and a 14% drop in the low-density “bad” cholesterol. Not bad for drinking 2 cans of juice per day! By the way, we don't recommend canned juice. Fresh vegetables are much better!
