What is Cholesterol?


Preventing high cholesterol is just as important as keeping your heart healthy. You are reading this article because you care about your heart and you want to keep it healthy. One way to keep keep your heart healthy is to know the importance of having a balanced cholesterol level.

What is cholesterol?

According to America Heart Association, cholesterol is a fatty, waxy substance in your blood. Having cholesterol in your body isn’t bad, it can only be bad if it becomes excess in the body. This can cause health problems. Our body needs cholesterol in order to make hormones and healthy cells.

The food we eat has a higher contribution to cholesterol in our bodies, especially the food that comes from animals, such as meat, poultry, and dairy products which contain dietary cholesterol. These foods have high fats and it causes the liver to produce more cholesterol than it should. Bad cholesterol can also result from the consumption of some tropical oils such as coconut oil, palm oil, and palm kernel oil. These oils contain saturated fat that increases bad cholesterol in the heart.

Two kinds of cholesterol in our body

There are two kinds of cholesterol in our body, Low-density lipoprotein(LDL) and High-density lipoprotein (HDL).

  • Low-density lipoprotein(LDL) is a bad kind of cholesterol that clogs the arteries. Unhealthy cholesterol contributes to a high risk of cardiovascular disease. It is best you check your cholesterol level to know if is below 100 Mg/dL which is the normal level for a person.
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is a good kind of cholesterol, it helps to eliminate LDL cholesterol in your arteries. The normal level for HDL is 60 Mg/dl.

Excess cholesterol in the blood vessels can affect the heart and brain. If a blood clot is formed and restricts blood flow, it can result in a stroke or heart attack.

6 effective tips to prevent high cholesterol

In order to prevent high cholesterol and keep it normal, there are 6 effective tips you should adhere to:

1. Check your cholesterol level

If you don’t want your heart to be at risk, you need to check your cholesterol level regularly.

2. Create a new diet

What we eat into our body is very important, we need to be guarded. Avoid or limit saturated and trans fat foods because they increase LDL cholesterol. Examples of saturated foods are;

  • baked goods i.e cookies, cakes, biscuits, etc.
  • red meat
  • junk food
  • excess butter consumption
  • egg yolks

Instead, create a new diet that is not saturated and trans fat such as;

  • soybeans
  • wheat
  • nuts i.e walnut, cashew nut
  • Avacado
  • Fatty fish
  • brown rice
  • seed
  • fruit
  • vegetables

3. Avoid or Quit smoking

Smoking is very bad, it has no positive benefits for health. Rather, it increases the risk of cancer and lung disease. Smoking damages the blood vessels and buildup plaques inside the arteries. Quitting smoking might be difficult, but don’t give up on trying to break free from it. Seek help from trusted people or groups you think can help you break free. Your health is important here, change is constant and you can take that step to change your lifestyle.

4. Be in control of your cholesterol level

When it comes to cholesterol, you need to learn how to control it so it won’t be so high or so low. High cholesterol levels can increase your risk of heart disease. It can also develop fatty deposits in blood vessels, and when these deposits grow, it makes it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries. Work on keeping a balanced cholesterol level. How can you do that?

There are some green teas that naturally help destroy bad cholesterol, balance cholesterol levels, cleanse the arteries, boost good cholesterol and eliminate free radicals. They include; GOTEA Cholesterol Reducing TeaGreatea Cholesterol Herbal TeaGreatea Hypertensive & Cholesterol Regulating TeaSmiley Cholesterol Care Tea, and JIANXI Cholesterol Tea. Some persons who have used these teas have so many positive reviews on how these tea has enabled them to have balanced cholesterol. Here is one of the reviews I had during my interview with a lady who had high cholesterol.

Priscilla said “I almost had a stroke because of bad cholesterol, but after GOTEA Cholesterol Reducing Tea was recommended to me, i gained my health back. This tea helped cleanse my arteries, boost my cholesterol to be good, balanced my cholesterol levels and eliminate free radicals from my system. Today, I feel so relieved knowing that my cholesterol level is now balanced and my heart is in good shape.

My advice to everyone out there is to always check their choleseterol level and take GOTEA Cholesterol Reducing Tea if you notice you have high cholesterol.”

The point here is, always try to be in control of your cholesterol level, don’t let it control you.

5. Engage in exercise

Exercise helps boost HDL cholesterol and also is beneficial for health. Try to do some aerobic exercises for 15-30 minutes two or three times a week. If you feel you can’t carry heavy weights or do some strenuous exercises, you can walk 10-15 minutes every day. Research shows that walking prevents and manages various health conditions including heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. It also improves cardiovascular fitness and prevents high cholesterol.
