There is an extraordinarily large amount of misinformation about cholesterol and we need to set the story straight. To start with here are some interesting facts about this beautiful and vitally important molecule.
Here are some facts about cholesterol:
That right high cholesterol does not cause heart disease and dietary cholesterol has absolutely no effect on your blood levels of cholesterol. Cholesterol becomes elevated in the blood when your body has lots of inflammation. Inflammation of an artery can lead to atherosclerosis and clots. Your body uses cholesterol to combat inflammation. So, suppressing cholesterol actually makes you more vulnerable to the ravages of inflammation. Addressing inflammation in the cardiovascular system is the real way to approach heart disease.
My hope is that now that you know how cholesterol works in your body, you will broaden your focus on your health. I hope to empower you to take control of your health.
