Milk thistle, or Silybum marianum as it is known in the scientific community, has quite a long and storied history of folklore in which it is credited with helping the liver recover. Keeping cholesterol levels where they should be has been demonstrated in recent research to be beneficial. Fifty persons with Type 2 diabetes and very high cholesterol were given Silybum marianum in a clinical research a few years ago. After four months, not only did their blood fat and bad cholesterol levels decrease, but so did their blood sugar levels according to studies.

Green teas, coffees, and even energy drinks are now widely available, and they are just a few of the many well-known items that contain ginseng root. Some research suggests that ginseng helps maintain healthy levels of both good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterol according to studies.

3. Garlic

It is a staple in kitchens around the world because it is delicious either raw and cooked and because it is used in so many different dishes.
