  4. Banana Stem juice is the one & Only natural stuff to get rid of high Cholesterol. I had high cholesterol and severe problems with it. When taken the Banana stem juice every day 1 glass, within 20 days my cholesterol just flew away and my pulse rate came down to 60/minute. It was really exciting. I did not do any dieting for this & no exercise and no time limits. I used to consume it between 10.30 and 11am or 5 and 6 pm whenever my stomach was empty. I have done this as per my parents advice who was into Nature cure sytem. Banana stem is the gift of God. We get it plenty in Kerala. People should be educated on this seriously. Someone should research and make it available in Medical shops, hence people living in city area can use it, where they may not get fresh ones. We can save lot of lives.

    Good Health to everyone.
