Researchers at the National Institute of Nutrition in India has found a particular blend of Lactobacillus rhamnosus and aloe vera cut cholesterol levels in rats by over 40%.
On its own, the probiotic reduced cholesterol by 32% but this increased to 43% when combined with aloe vera. These supplements improved HDL levels (good kind) and reduced LDL (bad kind) and VLDL (real nasty kind).
The researchers were not sure how these supplements actually achieved the cholesterol lowering effects.
