European scientific societies recommend a cholesterol level lower than 190 mg/dl, when dealing with the general population.
Nevertheless, high cholesterol levels don’t cause any symptoms. When they do occur, they may be triggered (angina) or myocardial infarction.
This is, therefore, a very serious condition, which should be prevented.
Cholesterol is an essential fat existing in our organism, which has two sources: a fraction is produced by the organism itself, particularly by the liver, while the other fraction is obtained from diet, particularly from consuming animal products, including meat, eggs and dairy products.
Our bodies need cholesterol to produce:
- Structure of the human body (cells)
- Bile acids
- Vitamin D production
Cholesterol circulates in the blood bound to a protein; this cholesterol-protein combination is, therefore, known as lipoprotein:
- Low-density lipoproteins (LDL):
Commonly known as “bad” cholesterol, since it is one that is deposited on the walls of arteries, causing atherosclerosis. The higher blood LDL concentrations, the higher the risk of cardiovascular disease.
- High-density lipoproteins (HDL):
Also known as “good cholesterol”, which plays a role in cleaning arteries; therefore, the higher their level, the lesser risk of cardiovascular disease.
Another type of fat that circulates in the blood.
An excessively calorie-, sugar- or alcohol-rich diet increases triglycerides, increasing cardiovascular risk.
Our body only needs a small amount of cholesterol to meet our needs.
While searching for solutions for the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, food supplements arise as important allies in wellbeing promotion and in the protection of your health.
