We've all heard the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." But is it also true that one apple can reduce unhealthy cholesterol levels in post-menopausal women?
According to a study led by researchers from Florida State University, an apple a day does indeed lower unhealthy LDL cholesterol, but the fruit also raises beneficial HDL in the process and reduces inflammatory and damaging compounds.
The study was done with a randomized trial of 160 women. According to the Personal Liberty Digest, half of the post-menopausal women consumed 75 grams of dried apples a day for a year while the other half ate prunes instead.
The ladies who had the apples lowered their LDL cholesterol levels by an average of 23 percent after only six months into the study. The news outlet also explained that the women saw a decrease in lipid hydroperoxide, which are cell-damaging particles in the body.
Besides cholesterol levels, the women also lost some unwanted pounds, shedding an average weight loss of 3.3 percent.
