How To Lower Your Cholesterol Naturally

- in Healthy Lifestyle, Home Remedies, How to

There are 2 types of cholesterol, Low-density lipoproteins or LDL (bad cholesterol) and high-density lipoproteins HDL (good cholesterol). LDLs are responsible for plaque buildup in the arteries, this blocks the flow of blood to major organs like the liver, the kidneys, genitals, brain and is the number one cause of heart disease.

HDLs in the other hand are considered good because they carry unused cholesterol back to the liver where it was produced once there the liver brakes it down to be removed from the body.

The needed cholesterol plays an important part in the formation of sex hormones and proper nerve and brain function. However, if we do not have enough HDLs or too much cholesterol for them to pick up and transport back to the liver it will stay in our arteries blocking them.

But you are probably asking yourself if the cholesterol is produced in the liver, why would I have too much, it seems like the liver would regulate how much cholesterol is needed? That is right, the problem is that cholesterol is also present in our diet and usually we eat too much-saturated fats such as coconuts, white bread, gravies, pork products, etc. all these added to the cholesterol produced by the liver could make us reach an unsafe cholesterol level.

Tips to Prevent Cholesterol

· Eating a diet low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol, getting plenty of exercises, managing your weight, and not smoking can help prevent high cholesterol. Because cholesterol levels tend to increase with age, paying attention to diet and exercise is particularly important as you get older.
· Remember that high cholesterol is just one of the things that increase your risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) and heart attack. Controlling other health problems, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, is also important to reduce your overall risk.

  1. Great article you got here.

    Am a witness to that of garlic, A study I carried out showed that it reduces the low density lipoprotein cholesterol while increasing that of the high density lipoprotein cholesterol.
    Although there was a new finding suggesting it’s minimal consumption in the absence of an infirmity. It still goes a long way to help lower cholesterol levels.

    1. I’m glad you liked it and find it helpful.

  2. Great tips. I use ginger to overcome high cholesterol.

    1. I’m glad you find these tips useful.
