Natural Statin AlternativesSeveral natural products (including some foods) and dietary supplements are claimed to promote healthy cholesterol. Such products include:
- Cod liver oil
- DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
- Flaxseed or flaxseed oil
- Red clover
- Royal jelly
Because dietary supplements can be marketed in the United States without any evidence that they are safe or effective, it should not be assumed that any dietary supplement intended to promote healthy cholesterol levels really works (or is even safe).
