AGING CONDITIONS

High Cholesterol

 

Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like material in your blood and all cells in your body. There are two types of cholesterol:

  1. Low-density lipoprotein [LDL]; the BAD cholesterol. LDL clings to artery walls, increasing plaque build-up. High levels of LDL increase your risk of heart disease and heat attack.
  2. High-density lipoprotein [HDL]; the GOOD cholesterol. HDL carries excess cholesterol to the liver where it is removed from the body. If you have a low level of HDL, you have a higher risk of heart attack. This condition can be controlled with weight management, proper diet, regular exercise and, in some cases, medication.

A high level of cholesterol in your blood can cause coronary artery disease and heart attack. It is also a secondary risk factor for stroke.

 

Triglyceride

Triglyceride is the most common of the body fats. Although high triglyceride levels are not a direct risk factor for heart disease, when high levels of triglycerides are combined with low HDL or high LDL, this increases risk of atherosclerosis and diabetes.

 

Maintaining A Health Cholesterol Level

In most cases cholesterol can be controlled through a combination of low fat diet and exercise.

  • Diet - lowers LDL
  • Exercise - raises HDL, helping to remove excess cholesterol

Certain nutritional supplements have also proven effective in helping to lower cholesterol: Omega-3, Olive Leaf Extract, Cinnamon Bark. Many of these also support the liver in other ways.
