How to live longer: Kalonji can lower cholesterol and blood sugar

There’s no getting around it: longevity is subject to chance. However, it may be less so than you imagine. The lifestyle decisions you make can significantly shorten or lengthen your lifespan. That’s because the world’s deadliest killer – heart disease – is largely preventable if you lead a healthy lifestyle.

Similarly, another study in 94 people found that taking kalonji daily for three months significantly reduced fasting blood sugar, average blood sugar and insulin resistance.

Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels so enhancing insulin is paramount to controlling blood sugar.

Combating cholesterol

One review of 17 studies found that supplementing with kalonji was associated with significant decreases in both total and “bad” LDL cholesterol, as well as blood triglycerides.

LDL cholesterol is the harmful type of cholesterol that clings to the inside of your artery walls, thereby raising your risk of heart disease (blood triglycerides are substances that produce a similar sinister effect).

Lastly, a study in 94 people with diabetes had similar findings, reporting that taking two grams of kalonji daily for 12 weeks reduced both total and LDL cholesterol.

General dietary tips to lower heart disease risk

According to the NHS, a low-fat, high-fibre diet is recommended, which should include plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (five portions a day) and whole grains.

“You should limit the amount of salt you eat to no more than six grams (0.2oz) a day as too much salt will increase your blood pressure,” advises the health body.

Six grams of salt is about one teaspoonful.
