For every 1% reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol, risk of heart disease drops by about 2%. Dr. Janet Brill’s new Cholesterol Down mobile app for Android promotes significant LDL reduction in 4 weeks without prescription drugs. The new mobile app for Android is available on Google Play.

Based on Dr. Brill’s best-selling book by the same name, the Cholesterol Down Android app targets LDL (bad) cholesterol reduction with a lifestyle approach. Users simply add nine “miracle foods” to a regular diet plus 30 minutes of walking to everyday routines. This straightforward and easy-to-follow plan can lower LDL cholesterol by as much as 47% in just 4 weeks.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just over 13% of US adults had elevated cholesterol levels in 2009-2010, compared to 18% a decade ago. The drop is attributed to widespread use of statin drugs to reduce high cholesterol.
