Prevent cholesterol naturally

Cholesterol is a fatty substance yellowish soft like wax produced by the body especially the liver. Cholesterol levels in blood and tissues needed by the body as a component of cell structure, hormones and vitamins to make sex hormones and sexual function, adrenal hormones required in metabolism processes, neural network wrappers (myelin), coat the cell membranes, vitamin D, and also very needed for the development of brain cells in children that affects the level of intelligence.

However, some cholesterol back to the liver to convert into bile acids and bile salts. In the end some of cholesterol will be excreted through feces. Body get additional cholesterol from food sources of income derived from such animal offal, animal fats, chicken skin, egg yolk, brain, meat, seafood, milk, dairy products, and so on.

Any amount of fat and carbohydrates that are not immediately used will be stored on the network outside the liver such as blood vessels, muscle, and fat tissue under the skin form of triglycerides dalan. So triglyceride is the main fat in the body that is closely related to cholesterol, which both have a relationship that can not be separated in the process of metabolism.

Triglycerides formed by the body in the heart of glycerol and fat derived from food or from excess calories due to excessive eating. Increased triglyceride levels induced by consumption of food containing carbohydrates and high in saturated fats such as meat, butter, palm oil, coconut oil, cheese, milk, alcohol, and so on are excessive. Excess triglycerides be dumped in the subcutaneous tissue as an energy reserve.

The process of digestion of fat from foods other than produce cholesterol, triglycerides and also produces free fatty. All of these fatty compounds will be absorbed by the body through the intestine into the blood. The presence of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood is desperately needed by the body.

If the consumption of foods containing trans fats will lead to excessive levels of cholesterol and triglyceride levels are also exaggerated. This will pose a threat and a serious problem, especially in vascular disease called atherosclerosis. This disease can lead to coronary heart disease and stroke, in which the type of blood vessel disease is the number one cause of death in the world.

Cholesterol is attached to the inner surface of blood vessel walls to harden the longer it will form a plaque that will eventually clog the blood vessels so the heart penyebabkan coronary heart disease. If the blockage occurs in the blood vessels in the brain and lead to the outbreak of the blood vessels may result in stroke.

There are two types of cholesterol that should be known that LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (High-density lipoprotein). LDL is called bad cholesterol because she was easily attached to the walls of blood vessels and cause accumulation of fat that trigger atherosclerosis (hardening and clogging of blood vessels). HDL is called good cholesterol because it has properties antiaterogenik (preventing atherosclerosis) that carry cholesterol from the blood vessels or other tissue to the liver for bile acids released as.

If the balance disturbed, tend to increase LDL and HDL cholesterol levels tend to be lower so that the atherosclerosis is more apt to occur. Blood cholesterol high high to say if the total cholesterol> 240 mg / dl. High blood triglyceride levels when> 200 mg / dl. High LDL cholesterol level when> 160 mg / dl. Low HDL cholesterol levels when <40 mg / dl.

High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood can not escape from the modern lifestyle with the wrong diet and nutritional imbalance. For the settings of food consumption must be taken very well.
