Cholesterol - Lowering...

I just read an interesting report by James Cerda, M.D., of the University of Florida Health Science Center, found that grapefruit pectin, found in the rind and fleash, lowered cholesterol an average 7.6% in 8 weeks. Since it is known that a 1% reduction in cholesterol causes a 2% drop in the risk of heart disease. Dr. Cerda regards this effect as "quite significant." To get the amount of pectin Dr. Cerda used, you'd have to eat about 2 and a half cups of grapefruit sections a day. If that's a little hard to swallow just drink some Fruta Vida juice everyday and enjoy the same benefits, without the sour or bitter pucker results.
