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


✔️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📥
