Do You Suffer From High (LDL) Cholesterol – Read Here How To Cure It

We are all aware about the need to lead a healthy life, to adopt healthy habits and do something to reduce the risks to our health.

In general, we all know what that means. Running, or any other physical activity burns calories and contributes to health.

Do not get discouraged at the beginning if you do not see a more notable improvement.

Any new positive habit in your life should be carried out gradually, because only in that way you can achieve a long-term benefit of all these routines.

Dietary modification is a change made in order to lower harmful (LDL) cholesterol and total (TC) cholesterol, thereby lowering the risks for cardiovascular disease.

In fact, high cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood are the main culprits for the greatest number of diseases of the modern man.

This does not mean that one should give up all fatty foods, but should choose those fats that are not saturated.

These are primarily: fatty meats, poultry skin, full-fat dairy products, coconut and palm oil. Trans fatty acids and saturated fats increase blood cholesterol.

Firm margarine, obtained from hydrogenated vegetable oils or fats, raises LDL cholesterol levels, and is found in many snack foods, cookies, and crackers.

A diet low in saturated fats is a good way to start a healthy lifestyle, which means that:

  • It lowers LDL cholesterol and total TC cholesterol
  • It improves blood circulation
  • It lowers the risk of arteriosclerosis and other changes in the blood vessels
