How To Treat High Cholesterol Naturally
What Is Cholesterol?
Hyperlipidemia or high cholesterol means you have too many lipids or fats in your blood.
Your liver creates cholesterol to help you digest food and make things like hormones, but you also eat cholesterol in foods such as meat and dairy.
Since the liver can make as much cholesterol as you need, cholesterol in the food you eat is “extra”.
Types Of Cholesterol
Bad cholesterol (LDL) is the most dangerous type because it causes hardened deposits (plaque). Decreased blood flow to the brain and heart increases the risk of heart attack or stroke.
HDL is known as good cholesterol because it brings cholesterol to your liver to be metabolized and eliminated.
Healthy Levels Of Cholesterol
Too much cholesterol (200 to 239 mg/dl) is borderline and 240mg/dl is high and not healthy.
It can even clog up your arteries and damage vital organs.
So the goal should be to keep:
- Blood cholesterol below 200
- LDL below 100
- HDL above 40
Risk Factors For Hyperlipidemia
You may be at risk of high cholesterol if you:
- Have a family history of high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, or obesity
- Eat too much dietary cholesterol
- Drink too much alcohol
- Have diabetes
- Or smoke
Statins, such as Lipitor are the most commonly prescribed medication to lower cholesterol.
However, some individuals can not tolerate these drugs due to side effects.
Quitting smoking, exercising, eating less fatty foods and maintaining a healthy weight can help you lower your cholesterol levels.
