4 Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance made by the liver and required by the body for the proper function of cells, nerves, and hormones. Especially if you are a diabetic. Cholesterol travels in the lipids (fatty acids) of the blood stream, also called plaque, can build up in the walls of the arteries decreasing the flow of blood to vital areas of the body. If plaque continues to build long term it significantly increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

5 Normally, cholesterol is kept in balance. But, the standard western diet which contains a large amount of hydrogenated fats and refined carbohydrates leads to a problem in this balance. This imbalance is manifested in elevated LDL (bad cholesterol) and a low HDL (good cholesterol) which increases our risk for heart attack or stroke. Other causes include inactivity, diabetes, stress, and hypothyroidism. As most are aware with visits to their doctor there are three lipoproteins in our blood that are important to our health, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), high-density lipoproteins (HDL), and triglycerides. LDL is known as the bad cholesterol because it is low in proteins and high in cholesterol. HDL, on the other hand, is high in proteins and low in cholesterol and therefore known as good cholesterol. Triglycerides are a separate lipid in the blood stream that provide a way for the body to store excess energy, but if they are high is another warning sign.

6 Cholesterol Normal Ranges The lipid profile blood test reports the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood steam. This is what the medical community believes the ranges should be but the most important thing to consider is the ratio of LDL to HDL cholesterol which should be around 2:1. on Functional Lab testing this could be different though.

7 Total cholesterol Below 200 mg/dl Desirable mg/dl Borderline high 240 mg/dl and above High LDL cholesterol Below 70 mg/dl Ideal for people at very high risk of heart disease Below 100 mg/dl Ideal for people at risk of heart disease mg/dl Near ideal mg/dl Borderline high mg/dl High 190 mg/dl and above Very high

8 HDL cholesterol Below 40 mg/dl (men), Below 50 mg/dl (women) Poor mg/dl Better 60 mg/dl and above Best Triglycerides Below 150 mg/dl Desirable mg/dl Borderline high mg/dl High 500 mg/dl and above Very high The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that a triglyceride level of 100 mg/dl or lower is considered optimal.

9 Cholesterol Reducing Foods If you want to lower cholesterol, diet is key. Here are the top foods and nutrients that can naturally lower cholesterol: Omega-3 fats Foods high in omega-3 fats can help increase HDL cholesterol and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies suggest these are also good for the brain and inflammation. Be sure to buy a very good brand because low quality fats can cause other problems. Foods high in soluble fiber Soluble fiber binds cholesterol in the digestive system causing it to be excreted by the body. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds and other fiber rich foods.

10 Olive oil Helps raise HDL cholesterol. Be sure to buy extra virgin. The olive oil bottle should show the date on manufacturing and lot number. Garlic and onions These two cholesterol reducing foods help lower LDL cholesterol because of their sulfur containing compounds which help cleanse the arteries. Herbs Add a variety of spices such as basil, rosemary and turmeric to your food which contain antioxidants that are cardio-protective and help lower cholesterol naturally.

11 Foods that Raise Cholesterol Avoid these bad cholesterol foods at all costs: Sugar and refined carbohydrates Both stimulate the liver to produce more cholesterol and increase inflammation. This for some people could also include fruit. Alcohol Also stimulates the liver to produce more cholesterol, increasing cholesterol levels and inflammation. A glass of red wine per day may be cardioprotective, but anything more than that will increase your cholesterol. Hydrogenated fats Vegetable oils are pro-inflammatory and may increase cholesterol. Caffeine Too much caffeine can increase cholesterol. Limit coffee or tea to no more than 1-2 cups per day. Also only buy organic coffee which is easy to find online or in better health food stores. Trans fats Increases LDL cholesterol, inflammation, and risk of cardiovascular disease.

12 Top 5 Cholesterol Lowering Natural Remedies Taking the right supplements and natural remedies can help lower cholesterol levels if combined with a healthy diet. #1 Fish Oil (1,000mg 2,000 mg daily) EPA and DHA (omega-3 fats) found in fish oil help reduce overall cholesterol levels. #2 CoQ10 ( mg daily) If you are on cholesterol lowering medications, take CoQ10 daily because these medications decrease levels of this important enzyme. #3 Niacin (1,500 mg daily) Niacin (vitamin B3) reduces LDL cholesterol by 25% and increases good cholesterol by 35%. You may want to take less if you get a flush. #4 Red Yeast Rice (1200 mg 2x daily) Reduces cholesterol by up to 32%. Take with CoQ10 to prevent deficiency. #5 Garlic (500 mg daily) Increases HDL cholesterol and lowers total cholesterol. Eating garlic and cooking with it is better than supplements but both will help nevertheless.

13 Exercises to Balance Cholesterol Exercise with weight training and burst training can boost HGH (human growth hormone) which can improve HDL cholesterol and lower LDL cholesterol.

14 Essential Oils for Cholesterol Lavender essential oil has been proven to lower cholesterol levels because it decreases emotional stress. Cypress oil lowers cholesterol because it improves circulation and rosemary oil reduces cholesterol because of it s unique anti-oxidant properties and is cardio-supportive.
