The elderly on the table reduce the fat “good medicine”
Since ancient times, Chinese medicine has had the saying that “medical food is the same as the sect.”
In many traditional Chinese medicine secret recipes, many of them are based on food and produce magical effects. Many common foods in daily diet are actually good medicines for lowering blood fat.
Soy: Soy and its products are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and lecithin, all of which can lower blood cholesterol.
It is especially important that soy and its products also contain soy saponins (such as the foamy substance that floats when soy milk is boiled), which is effective in lowering blood fat, and also has the effect of reducing weight and preventing arteriosclerosis.
Cucumber: Cucumber contains fine fiber, which promotes the excretion of intestinal spoilage substances and lowers cholesterol.
In addition, the propanol acid contained in cucumber can inhibit the conversion of carbohydrates into fat, and is especially suitable for patients with cardiovascular diseases.
Garlic: British scientists have found that fresh garlic can greatly reduce the amount of harmful cholesterol in the blood.
Garlic powder products can reduce cholesterol by 8%, while fresh garlic or garlic extract can lower cholesterol by 15%.
The lipid-lowering efficacy of garlic is related to the substance contained in garlic, allicin.
This active ingredient of garlic has antibacterial and anti-tumor properties, can prevent atherosclerosis, and lower blood sugar and blood lipids.
The experiment found that a few drops of allicin drip into the milk, the cholesterol in the milk is greatly reduced, the northerners love the raw garlic than the southerners, suffering from much less heart disease, because garlic has reduced blood cholesterol and triglycerides.
Onion: Its hypolipidemic efficacy is related to its allyl disulfide and a small amount of sulfur amino acids. These substances are glycosides, which can prevent atherosclerosis in addition to lowering blood fat. It is an ideal food for preventing cardiovascular diseases.
Milk: Contains carboxyl group and methyl sebacic acid, which inhibits the activity of cholesterol synthase in the human body, thereby inhibiting the synthesis of cholesterol and lowering the blood cholesterol level.
In addition, milk contains more calcium, which can also reduce the body’s absorption of cholesterol.
Ginger: Ginger contains an organic compound similar to salicylic acid. The dilute solution of the substance and anti-coagulant have a good effect on lowering blood fat, lowering blood pressure and preventing thrombosis.
Soft-shelled turtle: It has the function of nourishing yin and tonic.
Experiments have shown that turtles can effectively reduce cholesterol levels after a high-fat diet.
