Your body contains two types of cholesterol: HDL and LDL. While high levels of HDL cholesterol benefit your health, high levels of LDL cholesterol can lead to serious health problems over time. The New York Times Health Guide warns that high levels of LDL lead to hardening of your arteries, or atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis damages your heart by limiting blood flow. Small build-ups of LDL on your artery walls can also cause blood clots which block blood flow.
This Hibiscus-Coconut drink has impressive antioxidant properties. It helps to lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol from the body, thereby helping to protect against heart disease and protecting blood vessels from damage.
