There is a specific type of leaf that farmers usually throw away as a by-product.
But they shouldn’t…
… because a new study published in the journal Food Science and Human Wellness reveals it can lower LDL (bad) cholesterol by 37%, soften arteries walls and prevent stroke and heart attack.
You can get this leaf in every health food store and it causes NO side effects.
The health benefits of grapes and grape seeds have been proven time and again—but what about the grape leaves?
Researchers at Maharishi Markandeshwar University in India loaded rats with a high cholesterol, high fat diet for 21 days to get their blood cholesterol level out of control.
The researchers then fed the rats 400 mg per 1 kg body weight of vine leaf extract per day. The comparison group did not receive vine leaf extract.
The LDL cholesterol level of the rats that received the vine leaf extract dropped a whopping 37%!
More importantly, the vine leaf reduced the thickening and hardening of their heart arteries walls and the plaque buildup in their arteries.
Just imagine. If your LDL cholesterol level is 160 (considered high), taking a high dose of vine leaf extract could possibly bring it down to a healthy level of 100.
You’d have to take a very high dose. A 140 lb person would need about 30 grams of vine leaf extract per day.
Unfortunately, there are no human studies on the benefits of vine leaf extract for cardiovascular health. We’ll just have to assume that the rat study translates somewhat directly to humans.
There is, however, an even more effective method to completely rid your arteries of unhealthy cholesterol and plaque buildup.
