TeeChia_Water_KettleEver since discovering that Teeccino has 1g of soluble fiber in a cup, I’ve been researching the great health effects attributed to consuming soluble fiber. With a genetic predisposition to high cholesterol that increases with age, I’ve been watching my cholesterol rise each year despite my daily cups of Teeccino. Last year, it crept up to 225 and although my doctor was raising his eyebrows, my “good” HDL cholesterol was still in a high ratio to the LDL “bad” cholesterol. “No statin drugs for me, but what to do if it keeps going up?” I pondered.
