Six Steps to Raise Good Cholesterol Levels By Kenn Fong

You know all about bad cholesterol and its effects, that it can cause heart attacks or strokes if left unchecked. But what is this good cholesterol you keep hearing about? High-Density Lipoprotein or HDL is the good guy of cholesterol. If you've ever seen a commercial for Scrubbing Bubbles replace soap scum for bad cholesterol (LDL) and you have a pretty good idea of what HDL does inside your veins and arteries. So how can you increase the level of your good cholesterol? We have compiled six tips to help you do just that. Exercise: Any activity that forces your heart rate up for a period of thirty or more minutes will increase HDL levels. Aerobic exercise will also help you lose fat, which is believed to contribute to higher LDL levels. You do not become a gym rat to reap the benefits of exercise. In fact some experts claim that it is the duration of exertion and not its intensity that is important in improving cholesterol levels. Diet: Add more dark green vegetables to your diet. While you're at it avoid trans or saturated fats as researchers believe these increase your LDL. Eat more pure protein like fish or skinless chicken. Whole wheats are your friend, because they are loaded with simple carbohydrates. Enjoy A Drink: It's not all bad. You now have a perfectly valid reason to have that cocktail at dinner. Enjoying one or two drinks a day has been shown to improve HDL in studies. Just don't over-indulge and you'll be fine. Stop Smoking: Need another reason to quit? How about this, by giving up tobacco a smoker automatically raises their HDL? Remove Stress: The verdict is out on whether this directly affects cholesterol, but many studies have shown correlations between heart disease and stress. I say don't wait for definitive evidence, stress is a known negative. Work to remove it from your life. Slow down, and enjoy the simple pleasures. Spend more time with friends and family and try to worry less. Get More Sleep: Your body uses sleep to repair itself from the ravages of the day. Make sure you get a solid eight hours every night to eliminate physical stress from the body. Just like mental stress, physical stress affects your health negatively. Think of your body like a car and sleep as your 50, 000

The Difference Between HDL and LDL Cholesterol By Steven A Johnson

There is a soft waxy substance found in fats that are in the blood stream and all of your bodies cells, it is called cholesterol. It is used to form cell membranes, hormones, and needed for other things, that’s why it is an important part of the health of your body. But too much or too little cholesterol in the body can cause health concerns. Cholesterol can not be dissolved in the blood so it is transported by lipoproteins. There are two different kinds of lipoproteins that transport cholesterol throughout the body called Low density and high density lipoproteins. LDL cholesterol is circulated in the blood and can slowly build up plague on the walls of arteries. It can cause a clot to form and block the blood flow to the heart and cause a heart attack. If the clot blocks the blood from the brain it is a stroke. HDL cholesterol carries about one fourth of the blood cholesterol. It mostly carries it away from the arteries and into the liver where it is removed from the body as a toxin. HDL cholesterol is better known as the good cholesterol. It is referred to as this because it seems to protect the heart. As there are 2 different main kinds of cholesterol there is also 2 main ways to get cholesterol. The liver produced some cholesterol and food that is consumed contains cholesterol. There is food that doesn’t have cholesterol in it as well. Normally the liver makes all the cholesterol that the body is going to need. Therefore you don’t need to consume any cholesterol. Trans fats and saturated fats raise the blood cholesterol. The liver does remove some of the excess cholesterol but the body is still taking in more than it needs. People who have high cholesterol levels need more excess cholesterol removed from the body. Getting regular exercise can actually increase HDL cholesterol in some people. It can also help control weight, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Things like power walking, jogging, and swimming are great exercise. Even things like yard work; house work, cleaning, and grocery shopping are getting exercise. Smoking has a great affect on your body. It is one of the risk factors for heart disease. You can change or treat it though. Smoking does however lower your HDL Cholesterol levels and increases the risk for blood clots. Moderate use of alcohol has been linked with higher levels of HDL Cholesterol, but the other risk f actors of drinking still don’t make it a great preventative. It can raise blood pressure, cause obesity, stroke, and cancer. Some of the foods that should be avoided to prevent excess cholesterol in the body are beef products, veal products, pork products, egg, egg yolk, turkey products, fish oil, fish products, lamb products, chicken products, and processed meats. Mostly all meat products will raise cholesterol levels. So will any fast food, and junk foods. Alterative Health Supplements has a product that will lower cholesterol levels in your body.
