High cholesterol: Foods such as citrus peel may lower bad cholesterol by 40%

PMFs are found in a variety of citrus fruits, with the most common form of antioxidant found in the peels of tangerines and oranges.

The study found that the compounds showed promising results as an effective and natural alternative for lowering LDL cholesterol.

Published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the findings also prove that PMFs share remarkable similarities with a host of other plant compounds found in citrus fruits, which are linked to many health benefits.

Separate research has shown a positive relationship between similar flavonoids, such as hesperidin, which is found in oranges and naringin from grapefruit.
