These 2 Fruits Called the Qur’an Can Lower Cholesterol Lifestyle – 1 hour ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – High levels of bad cholesterol or LDL are a problem for most people. This is because high LDL levels can make blood circulation difficult due to fat deposits in the blood vessels.

If this condition continues to occur, the risk of heart disease, stroke, and worsening blood circulation can increase. Meanwhile, smoking habits, diabetes, hypertension, family history of coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, chronic inflammation, and obesity are a number of factors that can trigger a spike in cholesterol levels.

There are various ways you can reduce high cholesterol levels, one of which is consuming certain fruits. Apparently, there are two fruits mentioned in the Muslim holy book, the Koran, which are able to reduce cholesterol levels.
Anything? Here’s the summary.
1. Figs
Figs or figs are one of the fruits most often mentioned in the Koran. In fact, the Qur’an has Surah At-Tin which means figs.
References to figs in verses of the Qur’an speak of the medicinal benefits of the fruit. In Islamic tradition, whatever name is used to swear an oath by Allah SWT has inherent majesty or importance.
Figs are known to contain pectin, a soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol levels. Soluble fiber is considered capable of eliminating excess triglyceride levels and helping eliminate triglycerides.
In addition, dried figs contain Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, phytosterols which are cardioprotective and help improve brain health.
Figs or figs in English also contain magnesium or a mineral in the body which plays an important role in bone health and energy balance.
2. Olives
Apart from figs, olives are also the fruit most often mentioned in the Koran, namely seven times. This proves how big and important figs are in the history of the development of Islam.
Apart from having nutritional as well as medicinal and cosmetic value, olives also fulfill a religious function as a sign of the greatness of Allah SWT.
In Surah Al Mu’minun verse 20, the Koran mentions fruits that must be eaten and talks about the olive tree that grows on Mount Sinai which provides oil and spices for eating.
Olives also have essential fatty acids which are good for heart and brain function, as well as polyphenols which have antioxidant properties. In fact, many people choose oil from olives as a healthier oil choice than palm oil.
Olive oil contains high monounsaturated fatty acids of around 75%. When replacing saturated fat, monounsaturated fat from olives helps lower bad cholesterol. The health benefits of olive oil are also attributed to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
