Question: Can probiotics help lower cholesterol?
Answer: Yes, certain probiotics, such as Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242 (Cardioviva) and E. faecium M-74, have been shown to modestly lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels in people with elevated cholesterol, although they do not raise levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol. For details about these probiotics, dosage, and potential concerns, see the What It Does section of the Probiotic Supplements Review>>
