While some cholesterol (the “good” HDLs) is necessary for a body to run properly, too high a level of LDLs (the “bad” ones) can be detrimental to your well-being. These numbers rise when there is an increase of fatty deposits that are built up in the body’s blood vessels, which can constrict the flow of blood. This, in turn, can result in a lack of proper amounts of blood pumping to the heart, upping the chances of heart disease and the potential for cardiac arrest. It can also constrict the amount of necessary blood flow to the brain, which can increase the chances of a stroke. Try making a few of these natural changes to get back on track.
Move the body, get blood pumping through the arteries and ensure that oxygen rich blood makes it to the organs (heart included) to repair damages and keep everything running as it should. Exercise can also assist in moving LDLs to the liver and out of the body.
Food and Drink
A change of diet can make a substantial impact in cholesterol levels. First and foremost, remove highly processed foods, which are often fatty and full of sugars, salts and additives. These types of foods are likely a large part of the reason levels have increased to begin with. Nibble instead on whole foods such as dark, vibrant veggies and fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and soy. As for meat, ditch the red meats and replace the steak with poultry or fish. Hydrate throughout the day with plenty of water and green tea.
There are many herbs and supplements that have been linked to lowering LDL cholesterol. Artichoke leaf extract, garlic extract, green tea extract, and fish oil are a few that have been shown to reduce triglycerides and LDLs in supplemental form. However, when taken this way you may have to deal with a few side effects such as nausea, bloating and interactions with other medications. If possible, try to ingest these nutrients in their whole food form and you can enjoy their benefits while being less likely to deal with the stomach upset.
Maintain a healthy weight. Carrying too many pounds can be disruptive to the way your body processes dietary fat. In addition, when going through proper channels to slim down, the body will likely implement lifestyle changes that are conducive to lowering levels in their own right.
Living with high cholesterol can put the body at risk and increases the chances of a life-threatening disease. Bring those numbers down with these lifestyle changes to ensure a healthy future.
