Raise Good Cholesterol

By Mary Ruddy

Good cholesterol is also known as HDL cholesterol and helps to prevent your arteries being blocked by bad LDL cholesterol. If you raise good cholesterol high enough, it can help prevent heart disease and decrease your risk of heart attack.

There are two main ways to raise good cholesterol and keep it raised, which are, changes to lifestyle and natural supplement therapy.

Changes to lifestyle recommended are as follows:

  • Daily Exercise – a short brisk walk every day can kick start and raise HDL cholesterol
  • Weight Loss – if you are overweight, even losing a few pounds will help raise HDL cholesterol and lower LDL cholesterol
  • Healthier Diet – you need to cut back on foods high in saturated fats, like red meats and dairy products. Limit the cakes, biscuits, cheese, spreads, beef, pork etc., by keeping an eye on your portion sizes. Increase your intake of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, and nuts
  • Quit Smoking or Cut back – quitting or reducing smoking can raise your HDL levels

Natural supplement therapy can help raise good cholesterol, and when combined with the above, is very effective at maintaining good cholesterol levels. The recommended natural supplement therapy includes:

  • Policosanol – a nutrient extracted from sugar cane, rice bran and beeswax, known to significantly reduce LDL cholesterol levels and raise HDL cholesterol
  • Lecithin – dissolves cholesterol thus preventing it from entering the gastrointestinal tract
  • Theaflavins – are produced when green tea ferments and, they not only lower LDL cholesterol, but they raise HDL cholesterol at the same time

You know, sometimes we can over complicate cholesterol, and when we over think the subject, we completely confuse ourselves and are no better off than when we started.

It is as simple as this. We have good cholesterol and bad cholesterol in our bodies. When the bad cholesterol is high and keeps getting higher, we are at risk of heart disease, stroke, clots and heart attacks.

HDL cholesterol helps deal with our LDL cholesterol so it is important to not only lower LDL cholesterol, but to also raise good cholesterol.

Don’t leave your cholesterol levels to chance. Never gamble with something as serious as your health and well being. Is it really worth the risk?

Take a step forward today and learn how to balance your cholesterol levels naturally, safely and effectively.
