Cash Contest on Facebook Encouraging Cholesterol Reduction Without the Use of Medication in Support of National Cholesterol Education Month
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on her profound belief in the power of food as medicine, Dr. Melina Jampolis, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist, announces the launch of her first-ever natural cholesterol reduction challenge. The goal of the free eight-week Facebook-based challenge is to encourage people who are not currently taking cholesterol-lowering medication to eat an optimal cholesterol-lowering diet, exercise regularly, and lose weight to compete for cash prizes. Dr. Jampolis will post daily cholesterol-reducing and heart-healthy tips and recipes on her Facebook page for the next month.
"I wholeheartedly believe that diet plays a significant role in lowering cholesterol without the use of medication, and I hope to both inspire and empower people to take a more active, preventive role in their heart health," Dr. Jampolis explains.
To enter the challenge, simply have your cholesterol checked anytime between September 23 and October 23. For full challenge details go to www.facebook.com/drmelina
100% of the profits from this challenge will benefit the scholarship program at Mindstream Academy, one of the nation's leading boarding schools for obese teens. The challenge is being supported by Dr. Melina approved sponsors including Nature Made Cholestoff®, Metamucil®, SooFoo®, Omax3®, Gardein®, and CalNatural Svelte®.
