Cholesterol is a white waxy substance that’s found naturally in our blood and is needed for a range of vital body processes. Most cholesterol is made in the liver and a small amount comes from the diet. Too much bad fat (saturated and trans fat) can increase bad cholesterol absorption. Replacing bad fats with good fats (polyunsaturated and monounsaturated) can help manage cholesterol absorption. Cholesterol absorption only becomes a problem when there is more than your body needs. It can cause the build up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels, reducing blood flow, and may then become a problem for your heart health. There are 2 types of cholesterol : High-density lipoprotein : (HDL) cholesterol is referred to as good cholesterol. It pushes the fatty substance through your body to the liver, which then removes it from your body. If you have a high HDL cholesterol level, your risk of having heart disease is reduced. Low-density lipoprotein: (LDL)cholesterol is known as bad cholesterol, because it can lead to an increase of cholesterol in your arteries. If you have high LDL levels of cholesterol in your blood, your risk of having heart disease is increased. If you have high cholesterol levels we wouldrecommend avoid smoking, eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, and keep your weight in check. These efforts will all help you to lower your risk for heart disease and stroke. Supplements recommended are: Garlic, Pomax, Multivitamin, Bilberry, Multivitamin
