Foods rich in red pigments -- such as tomatoes, cherries and red wine -- eliminate harmful free radicals and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Orange foods may reduce bad cholesterol, manage blood sugar levels, promote healthy joints and boost collagen formation for healthy skin. Incorporate salmon, sweet potatoes, carrots and oranges.
Eating yellow foods such as olive oil, bananas and yellow peppers can boost HDL (good) cholesterol, lower bad cholesterol, normalize blood pressure and fight cancer-causing free radicals.
