Probiotics May Lower Cholesterol

Probiotics May Lower Cholesterol

Another reason to take probiotic supplements.

People are interested in finding alternatives to prescription drugs for lowering cholesterol. Doctors analyzed eight fermented milk-product studies and three probiotics capsule studies that included men and women with or without elevated cholesterol. Those who used any form of probiotics saw an average 6.56 mg/dL decrease in total cholesterol and an 8.49 mg/dL decrease in LDL cholesterol. Using probiotics for more than four weeks was more effective than a shorter term, and benefits were greatest in those with mildly elevated cholesterol. The decrease in LDL suggests 8 percent fewer major heart and circulatory events, doctors said.
