DESCRIPTION: This is the third video of a five-part series on the cholesterol-lowering effects of nuts and seeds. In Friday’s video-of-the-day, Nuts and Bolts of Cholesterol Lowering (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/nuts-and-bolts-of-cholesterol-lowering/), I reviewed the data showing nuts decrease cholesterol levels and heart disease mortality. Yesterday’s video-of-the-day, How Fiber Lowers Cholesterol (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-fiber-lowers-cholesterol/), attempted to explain the fiber mechanism and the final two will wrap up on a more practical note discussing optimal phytosterol doses (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-phytosterol-dose/) and sources (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-phytosterol-source/). The role played by phytoestrogens can be found in Soy & Breast Cancer Survival (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/soy-breast-cancer-survival/) and Soy Hormones & Male Infertility (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/soy-hormones-male-infertility/). Not all molecular mimics are good, though. Check out Poultry and Paralysis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/poultry-and-paralysis/).
