Dangers of high cholesterol


How to manage high cholesterol?🧐

.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is an essential component of our bodies. Your body makes most of the cholesterol that is found in your bloodstream. It’s primarily produced in the liver.

.

Dietary cholesterol – found in animal foods like eggs, shellfish, cheese, and organ meat – makes up a smaller portion of your blood cholesterol pool.

.

Despite what we’ve all heard, there’s actually no such thing as “good” or “bad” cholesterol; there is only one type of cholesterol. Your LDL and HDL values refer to how much cholesterol is carried in your HDL and LDL lipoprotein particles.

.

LDL is often referred to as “bad” cholesterol because high levels of LDL can cause heart disease, damage arteries, and leave you at risk of stroke and heart attack.

.

Fortunately, you can lower LDL cholesterol levels by changing your diet. Certain foods have been proven to be effective at reducing LDL cholesterol, like:

✔️black tea

✔️avocados

✔️green vegetables

✔️cocoa and dark chocolate

✔️nuts and seeds

.

Here are current recommendations for optimal blood lipid levels:

▪️triglycerides: under 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl)

▪️LDL cholesterol: under 100 mg/dl

▪️HDL cholesterol: at least 60 mg/dl

.

👉Are your blood test results abnormal?

👉Time to change your diet and lifestyle!

.

Anyone with high blood lipid levels or low HDL cholesterol levels should work with a qualified healthcare professional. High Performance Brain members can help you to design a tailored plan that suits your specific needs. Don't wait, visit our websitehpbrain.org📥
