Kale Can Help Lower Cholesterol Which May Reduce The Risk of Heart Disease
Cholesterol has many important functions in the body. One of them, is being used to make bile acids, which are substances that help us digest fats.The liver turns cholesterol into bile acids, which are then released into the digestive system whenever we eat a fatty meal. When all the fat has been absorbed and the bile acids have served their purpose, they are reabsorbed into the bloodstream and used again. Substances called bile acid sequestrants can bind bile acids in the digestive system and prevent them from being reabsorbed. This reduces the total amount of cholesterol in the body.
