Win The War Naturally Against High Cholesterol
by Frank Mangano
Don't accept that prescription just yet. In most cases it's
possible to take control of your cholesterol naturally, without
the use of prescription drugs. First, you need to understand some
facts on cholesterol.
When the word "cholesterol" comes to mind some of us may think of
it as deadly. The truth about cholesterol is that it isn't deadly
at all, it's a vital substance.
Cholesterol is actually a very important part of our bodies
because it's used to form cell membranes and is needed for other
functions in our bodies. However, it's when there are excessive
levels of cholesterol in the blood that cholesterol can become
This is known as hypercholesterolemia or "high cholesterol."
There are many risk factors involved in having high cholesterol.
These risks shouldn't be taken lightly as high levels of
cholesterol greatly increase the risk of stroke, atherosclerosis,
and coronary heart disease.
There are different ways you can develop high cholesterol. Your
body, mainly the liver, can produce too much cholesterol and a
poor diet will almost always do it. You MUST take on permanent,
healthy lifestyle changes to take control of your cholesterol.
1) Becoming more active. Physical activity plays an important
role in reducing and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Just
30 minutes per day can have a positive impact.
2) Eating foods that are low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
3) Maintaining a diet rich in soluble fiber. Soluble fiber binds
with cholesterol in the intestine and takes it out of the body.
There are also many natural alternatives that can be used to
compliment a healthy lifestyle. Lecithin, which is a natural
substance derived from the soybean, is one of the most effective
supplements available to lower cholesterol.
Lecithin is actually a phosphorus lipid. Each cell in the body
has protective membranes made of phosphorus lipids, including the
nerve cells throughout the body and brain. Lecithin is useful in
moving cholesterol out of the body in water and maintaining a
healthy liver in general. Other benefits in addition to lowering
cholesterol include making fat-soluble vitamins more easily
absorbable in the body.
Before making the decision to start statin therapy, you may want
to consider trying natural alternatives first. Statin medications
work by interfering with an enzyme that is necessary for the body
to manufacture cholesterol. There can be side effects when using
these drugs which range from mild to very serious.
Natural alternatives are not only much safer than using
prescription drugs but also a lot cheaper. Some natural
alternatives may even be as effective as using a statin.
