What is cholesterol
Cholesterol is a fatty substance that is mostly produced in the body by the liver. We also get some cholesterol from the food we eat. Cholesterol has important functions in the body. The body uses for example cholesterol as a source for endogenous hormones and uses cholesterol to transport fats. However, high blood cholesterol is linked to an increased risk on heart and vascular diseases. Especially when the state of the vessels is not optimal, cholesterol can attach to the sides of the arteries which will make the arteries narrow and clogged.
Especially when inflammations develop in the vessel walls, the risk on clogging of blood vessels increases because the damage to the inner wall of the blood vessels increases the risk on plaque formation. Therefore, it is very important to keep blood vessels in a healthy shape and stick to a healthy lifestyle.
Some risk factors for high cholesterol include:
- Hereditary predisposition
- Bad eating habits
- Excessive use of alcohol
- Insufficient physical exercise
- An underactive thyroid gland
- Use of certain medication
Tips for maintaining a healthy blood cholesterol levels:
- Ensure sufficient exercise
- Eat as little sugar as possible
- Try to limit the intake of linoleic acid (which is often found in products such as cakes and biscuits)
- Do not drink too much alcohol
- Eat plenty of vegetables (vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibers)
- Take 2 capsules Cholesterol Control per day
The following list shows when one can speak of a normal cholesterol level and when the cholesterol level is elevated:
- Below 5.0 mmol/l - normal
- 5.0-6.4 mml/l - slightly increased
- 6.5-7.9 mml/l - increased
- higher than 8.0 mmol/l - strongly increased
