High Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a type of fat found in your blood and whilst a certain amount is necessary for our body to produce hormones, high levels can cause problems. Blood tests done by your GP will reveal whether your levels are higher than normal, and if they are then there is usually an imbalance between the beneficial high density lipoprotein (HDL) and bad low-density lipoprotein (LDL). 

If the dangerous LDL levels are higher than the good HDL levels, this encourages the development of coronary heart disease, a cardiovascular condition in which your arteries become narrowed due to fat deposits which, as a result, constrains the movement of blood to your heart and brain.

Q&A

How can High Cholesterol affect your life?

High levels of non-beneficial LDL cholesterol increases your risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other heart health complications as the blood vessels that bring oxygen and other nutrients become narrowed with the fat deposits and your body must work harder to pass it through the increasinly small spaces.

The power of nutrition has been shown time and time again to lowering cholesterol.

  • Certain foods will bind to and filter out excess bad cholesterol out the body
  • Promotes ideal and healthy weight
  • Reduces your risk of other heart complications
  • Provides nutrients and energy to help you thrive

What should you do if you think you are at risk of/or have high cholesterol?

It is a good idea to check in with your GP for a simple blood test to determine your cholesterol levels.
