Yes tamarind is as effective as cragaegus to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

People do not think that obvious things could be medicines.

From Indian or Chinese stores you can get either tamarind or tamarind extract paste etc. Try whatever suits you. Dissolve it in lukewarm water, and drink it up. Or add some syrup to make a sharbat of it.

I am sure that it will lower cholesterol by raising blood ph value, or by making it more acidic. For best results drink it in the morning, empty stomach.

Tamarind is commonly used by Mexicans to make flavored water. The tamarind is available at Mexican stores or Mexican section of grocery stores. The plant is peeled and the seed removed and cooked in water, and then sugar is added to it. I'm sure you can add whatever sweetner you like.

I hope that members who read this thread who suffer from a high cholesterol level will use Tamarind in the manner described in the posts above and report their response to this therapy.

It is very likely that Tamarind can help in the reduction of Cholesterol levels and if it does it is very likely that it will also help in the reduction of Hypertension.

As far as I know Tamarind has not been used in this regard and I hope that members who use it will share their response on this Forum.

Can you inform us how much Tamarind you used daily?

I am happy to note that you confirmed that it was the Tamarind alone that helped to lower your Cholesterol and it would interest us to learn how much you used daily. It is very sour in taste and it takes some grit to take it on a daily basis.

You may like to know that I have a 200+ year old Tamarind tree in our back garden. It is about 50ft in height and is loaded with the seed pods right now which are very sour to the taste. We only use the fleshy part covering the seeds to season curries but it has not been used to lower Cholesterol.

Even vinager, lime or lemon juice also may give similar effects. Anything that is acidic in nature, brings reverse effects in the blood.

Tamarind is used in abundance in South India and obesity is not rampant there.

The only problem is that when tamarind etc is stopped problems reappear. Best thing is to make these things a part of life.

Upon cooking rice, one should put a spoonful of vinager or lime juice in water. Tamarind, lime juice or vinager can be used in curries in routine.

Of-course tamarind has cholesterol lowering character. It is a solvent to LDL
