Dangers of high cholesterol


How to manage high cholesterol?šŸ§

.

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. Itā€™s primarily produced in the liver.

.

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

.

Despite what weā€™ve all heard, thereā€™s actually no such thing as ā€œgoodā€ or ā€œbadā€ 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 ā€œbadā€ 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:

āœ”ļøblack tea

āœ”ļøavocados

āœ”ļøgreen vegetables

āœ”ļøcocoa and dark chocolate

āœ”ļønuts and seeds

.

Here are current recommendations for optimal blood lipid levels:

ā–Ŗļøtriglycerides: under 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl)

ā–ŖļøLDL cholesterol: under 100 mg/dl

ā–ŖļøHDL cholesterol: at least 60 mg/dl

.

šŸ‘‰Are your blood test results abnormal?

šŸ‘‰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.orgšŸ“„
