High cholesterol is a problem that is caused by the lack of a proper healthy balanced diet, bad eating habits and in some cases it is hereditary. Certain individuals inherit the condition familial hypercholesterolemia, a condition where the cholesterol levels are dangerously high. In other cases, the individuals tend to eat a lot of foods that contain high cholesterol or a lot of saturated fats which will basically increase your low density lipoproteins levels (LDL), that is, your bad cholesterol which is a health risk that causes a blockage to your arteries and subsequently causing heart disease among other ailments.
To maintain normal cholesterol levels and improve your health, it is advisable to eat foods that are low in cholesterol and to exercise regularly. Foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, chicken, lean meat should be incorporated into your daily diet as they are low in cholesterol and will increase your high density lipoprotein levels (HDL), your good cholesterol whose main function is to reduce the LDL levels in your body by excretion.
Taking regular walks, or signing up in a gym are just one of the ways you can exercise not necessarily on a daily basis but as often as you can preferably thrice or four times in a week but for an individual who is trying to combat the problem of high cholesterol it is best to exercise on a daily basis for an hour or two.
It is hard sometimes to avoid some of your favorite foods like candy bars and chips, but you need to realize that your main focus is to lower your cholesterol levels in your body and more so to ensure that your cholesterol ratio is good, which is your LDL to HDL ratio. Total cholesterol figures do not indicate your individual good and bad cholesterol levels so they are not very accurate in making a diagnosis. Doctors claim that a good cholesterol ratio is 3:1 and to maintain normal cholesterol levels consume not more than 200mg of cholesterol a day.
The liver produces most of the cholesterol in your body therefore with a diet change it might not really do the trick and it is always best to combine it with natural cholesterol supplements that contain Phytosterols, Policosanol and D-Limonene that will help combat the bad cholesterol by reducing its production and absorption while simultaneously increasing your good cholesterol levels.
Living a healthy lifestyle should be a priority to anyone who values life. It is simple to keep to a healthy diet and regular exercise and one should not wait to have suffered a heart attack caused by high cholesterol to change their lifestyle.
