Olive oil is a healing oil ... even in case of high cholesterol level.
The only way for the cholesterol to leave human body is through liver in the form of bile ... through bile ducts ... intestines ... where it must binde to soluble fiber to exit.
To lower your cholesterol, you should make sure that your bile ducts are clean. The only way for excess cholesterol to leave your body is through your bile ducts. Many herbs have ability to increase bile flow and to help lower high cholesterol. Those herbs are called cholagogue. Some cholagogue herbs are: dandelion, wormwood, Black Walnut
green hul, golden seal, sage, radish, green salad, daikon, wheat grass, barley grass, olives, olive oil, walnut, ... very long list of herbs. Almost all bitter tasting herbs, and herbs containing oil (nuts) are cholagogue...
The main function of the gallbladder is to concentrate and to store bile. The gallbladder, which has a capacity of 50 milliliters (average) (about 5 tablespoons), concentrates the bile 10 fold by removing water and stores it until a person eats. At this time, bile is discharged from the gallbladder via the cystic duct into the common bile duct and then into the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), where it begins to dissolve the fat in ingested food.
The liver's cells (hepatocytes) excrete bile into canaliculi, which are intercellular spaces between the liver cells. These drain into the right and left hepatic ducts, after which bile travels via the common hepatic and cystic ducts to the gallbladder.
The liver excretes approximately 500 to 1000 milliliters (50 to 100 tablespoons) of bile each day. The gallbladder, which has a capacity of 50 milliliters (average) (about 5 tablespoons), concentrates the bile 10 fold by removing water and stores it until a person eats.
Bile, 50 - 100 milliliters is discharged from the gallbladder via the cystic duct into the common bile duct and then into the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), where it begins to dissolve the fat in ingested food.
Most (95%) of the bile that has entered the intestines is resorbed in the last part of the small intestine (known as the terminal ileum), and returned to the liver for reuse.
The more fibers you eat, the less bile will be resorbed.
Bile is a carrier of heavy metals. It is good not to resorbe it.
The Best way to 100% clear your bile ducts is to flush your liver every two weeks until you get no stones.
Good quality olive oil will not affect negatively cholestrol level. Olive oil will actually decrese cholesterol.
