1 Answer:

Hello


Pineapple fruit is known as a fruit that is free of fat and cholesterol. Therefore this fruit is good enough to be consumed by people with high cholesterol levels. In some studies it has even been found that pineapple can lower cholesterol levels in the body. Apart from being fat-free, pineapple is rich in fiber which causes bile excretion to increase and has an impact on reducing the enterohepatic cycle of bile. The effect of cholesterol soluble in bile is removed and the amount circulating in the body is much reduced.


The effect of lowering cholesterol levels will be maximized if eating fruit is accompanied by other healthy lifestyles, namely regular exercise. The recommended exercise is 3-5x/week for at least 30 minutes. Based on many studies, this combination of a healthy diet and exercise is effective in reducing blood cholesterol levels.


A total cholesterol level of 225 mg/dL is slightly higher than expected (<200 mg/dL). However, usually at that level, if you don't have any special symptoms/illness, you don't need medication, just a healthy lifestyle is enough. For fruit itself there is no specific recommendation because in general fruits and vegetables are very good for lowering blood cholesterol.
