May I offer a natural alternative to statins? It's been researched and tested, and also reported in health pages of newspapers, and I can personally vouch that it works. Everyday a take a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar, I mix it with the juice of half a lemon, teaspoon of honey, topped up with hot water. Better if all ingredients are organic, tastes lovely and helps to balance cholesterol levels and lower triglycerides.
A diabetic friend was suffering greatly with raised cholesterol and her nurse was quite worried about her. She's only 21. She took my advice and still continues to take it today, her cholesterol dropped within normal range in under three months and her nurse was amazed. She'd never heard of it.
Please research for yourselves, it really works and is all natural.
Hope this helps
