CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH (CHOLESTEROL)
High cholesterol can be a risk marker for cardiovascular disease (CVD). An old theory blamed diet and family history but that’s only part of the picture. We now know blood vessels and healthy cholesterol get damaged and changed due to oxidative stress, inflammation and low antioxidant levels. Diets too low in healthy omega-3 fats allow “bad” cholesterol to hang around.
A good cholesterol program will include maintaining healthy antioxidant levels, omega-3 oils, fiber (up to 26 grams minimum a day) and assistance from natural cholesterol support like Cholesta-Care ES™. If you do not consume enough fiber, consider a supplement like Acacia Fiber to help when diet isn’t enough. It may take three months or more to change your cholesterol profile so monitor your progress with your doctor via blood testing.
