Chocolate Chip Cookies to Keep Cholesterol at Bay

The Journal of Nutrition in its current issue (October) has published a study, which claims that Right Direction Chocolate //Chip Cookies TM can not only lower cholesterol levels but also enhance lipid sub fraction profile in an individual. This would substantially curtail the risk of cardiac disease. These cookies contain psyllium, (a seed used for medicinal purposes taken from the common fleawort, proven to be efficacious in lowering serum cholesterol), and plant sterols (which are extracts of certain plants that, when ingested, hamper the absorption of cholesterol in the small intestine). These cookies therefore offer a delectable and a completely natural choice to curb cardiovascular risk linked with high cholesterol levels.

At least 50% of American adults are estimated to have high cholesterol levels . According to this study a daily intake of two Right Direction Cookies showed a ten percent reduction in serum LDL cholesterol (considered harmful as it can build up in arteries) and also reduces the possibility of plaque formation on the walls of the arteries.

Normal cholesterol levels need not always portray a lesser risk scenario. Recent research has revealed that the Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) hastens the development of fatty waxy substances, which can build up in the inner walls of arteries even when a person may have cholesterol levels below 200mg/dl.

Thirty three adults with fairly high levels of serum cholesterol between ages 35-36 were subjected to a double blind study randomly, at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT. Those who participated were randomly divided into two groups, the Right Direction Cookie group and placebo cookie group. Each individual were portioned two cookies per day for the next 4 weeks. Following initial setback after three weeks, the trial was continued for an additional 4 weeks. Thereafter two blood samples were collected on varying days so as to rule out daily fluctuations in blood seru m values.

The participants whom had Right Direction Cookies showed a remarkable ten percent decline in their blood serum.
