How to reduce cholesterol levels naturally

This time we will talk about what needs to be done to keep healthy levels of cholesterol. We will talk about natural and quick ways of lowering bad cholesterol. 

There are two types of cholesterol:
1. LDL are lipoproteins of low density, which can settle the walls of blood vessels and increase the risk of atherosclerosis. LDLs are called “bad cholesterol.”

2. HDL are lipoproteins of high density. They dissolve well and are not prone to the precipitation of cholesterol. This way, they protect blood vessels from atherosclerosis changes (that is, they are not atherogenic). They are often called “good cholesterol".

It is essential to control blood cholesterol levels and maintain their good levels. This is bcause excess cholesterol in the blood disrupts the hormone levels causing other problems in the body.

Advice to help you reduce cholesterol levels naturally

  • Be more physically active.
Doing 2.5 hours of physical exercise a week is enough (for example, walk for half an hour a day). This is easy, healthy, and all you need for it is a pair of good shoes.

  • Do not smoke.
Even smoking 2-3 cigarettes a day significantly increases blood cholesterol levels. Avoiding cigarette smoke and maintaining a healthy diet improves blood cholesterol levels in just 2-3 weeks.

  • Avoid stress.
Stress directly increases blood cholesterol levels. Release stress with relaxing exercises and meditation. Concentrate on your breathing and breathe deeply.

  • Control food quality.
One portion of meat or fish is approximately an amount that can fit in your palm. One portion of fresh fruit should be the size of your fist. One portion of vegetables, rice, or pasta should be about two handfuls worth.

  • Keep the diet.

People receive 20% of their cholesterol from food. This 20% can be significantly reduced with a proper diet. Avoid fried food. It is best to eat stew, baked, or grilled foods.
