Eat This Healthy Snack for Lower LDL Cholesterol

You could do wonders for your cholesterol profile by crunching on three of these a day: apples.

According to Maoshing Ni, PhD, author of Secrets of Self-Healing, eating three apples a day for 3 months could help lower cholesterol by as much as 20 points.

Apple Appeal
Ni points to a Finnish study on nutrition and heart disease in which the apple effects on cholesterol were observed. And because of the almighty apple's low-cal, high-fiber profile, this fruit is one of his favorite home remedies for good cardiovascular health. 

The Skin Is In
Because some of the best apple nutrition is in the peel, you'll want to leave it on and eat your apples whole. So going organic probably makes sense when it comes to buying apples. Learn the best foods to buy organic.
