I tried pomegranate fresh juice one cup daily in morning empty stomach for two months my Hb increased from 13.5 in dec to 17.5 in march and cholesterol decreased from 271 in dec to 238 in march but upon stopping Hb decreased to 16.7 in august but cholesterol increased back to 271 in aug. I tried seeds in warm water but owing to being very very sour I could not drink so i will try lesser sour seeds next time.
pomegrante juice or seeds: I tried... - Diabetes India
I am not on any drugs except BP drugs . during these two months I took Metolar-SR50 for high BP 200/110, which helped me fully control BP to140/70 plus amlodipine-5mg plus but for last month I have stopped Metolar and amlodipine and on ayurvedic Muktavati-2tablets BD and now BP is still 140/80 and feel better. I feel Metolar has done the damage to cholesterol levels. Further I am on no onion no garlic jain food /2 rotisx3 meals and minimal of carbs.
thanks Medfree for links carbs are primary causes and 9 part on cholesterol for better understanding.

My Lipid levels and BP, used to be high.chol-250,TG-240... BP-140/90... I take tab olmezest-10 mg ,once in morning,which has kept my BP at 110/75 ,almost constant for last 3 years...
For lipids, i take Tab Rosawel F. ,once. ( plus i take one teaspoon of roasted Flaxseeds, 3-4 times a day)...this has brought down my lipid levels...chol-107,LDL-44,.HDL-39,TG-119......
Flax seeds worth trying.
Too much low levels are not good. TG levels is still slightly high.

The effect is mainly caused by Rosawel F.
Hba1c of 6.5 is high level.
