Cholesterol is a building material for cells and hormones. Cholesterol is, therefore, necessary for the body and without cholesterol, the body cannot function. Most people are familiar with the two different forms of cholesterol: LDL and HDL. Not only the total values are important, but also the ratio between the two forms and especially the particle size.

Changeable cholesterol levels

 

Cholesterol is a fatty substance and is produced in the liver. Cholesterol from foods has a minimal impact on the blood values. The body uses cholesterol to make cells, hormones and bile. The cholesterol level in the blood is variable. Factors such as diet, seasons and stress have an influence on cholesterol concentrations. The general cholesterol hypothesis in which saturated fats are seen as the main player is increasingly coming under fire on the basis of new insights.

 

Decrease cholesterol

 

Cholesterol-lowering foods include legumes, nuts, fiber from fruits and whole grains, and fatty fish. Various supplements can also help in reducing cholesterol levels or are good for cholesterol levels, for example Curcuma (also known as Turmeric). Other products in this category include Ubiquinol - Kaneka QH® and Omega-3 Krillolie.
