Lower Triglycerides

My triglycerides were high at my last checkup. How can I lower them?

Triglycerides are simply a form of fat. "They are as important as high cholesterol [another type of fat] in women," says Noel Bairey Merz, MD, medical director of the Women's Health Program and Preventive Cardiac Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Left unregulated, these fats can contribute to atherosclerosis, a condition in which artery walls become thicker and less elastic. When a blood test indicates that triglyceride levels are high (over 150 mg/dl), it's a tip-off that they're hovering in the bloodstream instead of being stored in the body for energy. Losing weight, reducing alcohol consumption, quitting smoking and exercising regularly can all help lower triglyceride levels.

I just started using a new gourmet instant coffee that helps reduce appetite, eliminate cravings, reduce portion sizes, decrease stored carbs and recharge your metabolism to burn more fat. Javita Burn + Control works because it contains two safe, proven herbs: YERBA MATE: Helps suppress appetite, and increases caloric burn rate. GARCINIA CAMBOGIA: Helps decrease your appetite and reduces the amount of carbs stored as fat. Visit www.myjavita.com/thecoffeebiz to learn more!
