Tips Combat Cholesterol

To prevent the buildup of plaque, it is important to lower your cholesterol level. A balanced diet together with a healthy lifestyle plays a significant role in managing your cholesterol.

  1. Foods that are high in soluble fiber lessen the number of low-density cholesterol and reduce its rate of absorption into the bloodstream. The recommended dietary intake is 5-10 grams of soluble fiber everyday.
  2. Consuming nutrients that are high in omega-3 fatty acids is beneficial for people with high cholesterol level. Our bodies do not have the capacity to produce these acids so we need to obtain it through nutrients.
  3. Reduce alcohol intake. Drinking in moderation actually lessens the risk of heart diseases but drinking too much alcohol will reverse the benefits.
  4. Be mindful of food labels. When buying, do not pick the items that have ingredients such as meat fat, palm oil, butter, coconut oil, chocolate and hydrogenated oil. Hydrogenated oil contains trans fats which increases bad cholesterol and lowers HDL cholesterol.
  5. Avoid foods that are high in saturated fats as they lead to high cholesterol level in the blood. These foods include meat pies, ghee, lard, cream, hard cheese, cakes, biscuits, and sausages.
  6. It isn’t alway’s easy eating the right foods to lower cholesterol, supplemetns that are hight in nutrients have been found very benificial in filling nutritional gaps and lowering cholesterol levels.
  7. Maintain a regular exercise routine. Walking, cycling, running, dancing and swimming can help lower high cholesterol level. At least 2 hours of average aerobic activities can improve blood circulation and flow of oxygen.
