To function effectively, your body requires some cholesterol. However, if there is too much in your blood, it can adhere to the artery walls and constrict or even block them. You run the risk of developing coronary artery disease and other heart disorders as a result. 

Adopt a heart-healthy eating plan to lower your triglyceride and bad cholesterol levels. This entails limiting bad fats, salt, and added sugar while consuming a variety of fresh, unprocessed foods. In one of her recent Instagram posts, nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee shares a chutney recipe that will help manage your cholesterol. 

She writes, “We are all familiar with what cholesterol is and the liver's role in its production. What we also need to understand is that what we eat has a major effect on the amount of bad cholesterol produced in our body and subsequently puts us at risk for several health problems like heart attacks, strokes and atherosclerosis.”

“In order to avoid these issues, it is vital to know that healthy eating habits form the cornerstone of any cholesterol control plan and can help to reduce your cholesterol naturally. Hence in my endeavour to bring about a balance between taste and health, I have created a recipe that promotes a cholesterol-lowering effect.” She continues.
