5 Ways to Lower Triglycerides

Reduce Unhealthy Fats
Our bodies store and circulate fat in the form of triglycerides. Eating a diet heavy in saturated and trans fats will raise the levels of your blood triglycerides. Fortunately, you can markedly improve your triglyceride levels by cutting down on consumption of these kinds of fats. If you have high triglycerides, it’s especially important to limit foods high in saturated fat, including marbled red meat, poultry skin, butter, whole milk, and other full–fat dairy products. Since trans fats are even more harmful than saturated fats, you’ll want to carefully check nutrition labels on margarines, snack foods, baked goods, and other packaged items to ensure they don’t contain any trans fats.
