Is cholesterol fat?
Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty molecule called cholesterol aids in the production of numerous hormones, vitamin D, and cell membranes in your body. Your liver and the meals you eat are both sources of the cholesterol in the blood. All the cholesterol your body requires is produced by your liver.
Fats in your diet
The correct ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is important for healthy cholesterol levels.
Oily fish including salmon, herring, mackerel, and sardines; fish oil and flaxseed oil; flaxseeds, walnuts, and chia seeds are all sources of omega-3 fats. vs Safflower oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, soybean oil, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds are examples of omega-6 fats.
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are good for your health, but the right balance is essential for healthy cholesterol levels as well.
Omega-6 and omega-3 fats were traditionally ingested by humans in equal amounts (1:1).
However, a modern Western diet may contain 15 times as many omega-6 fatty acids as omega-3 fatty acids. Get as near to 1:1 or 1:2 as you can with the fats in your diet, but don’t exceed 1:4. That is, you only have up to four times as much omega-6 for every grams of omega-3 fat. If you need help to work this out contact me.
Niacin, often known as vitamin B3, has ben found to lower triglycerides and raise levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or good, cholesterol. Reference
To support lower cholesterol, a person can also take additional nutritional supplements, such fish oil. However, individuals should only utilise these products after consulting a physician. Reference
A excellent multivitamin and mineral supplement is advised by WebMd and Dr. Mark Hyman to support healthy cholesterol levels.
According to studies low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, also known as “bad” cholesterol, may be reduced by resveratrol, which may also help avoid blood clots. Reference
Studies have shown that fucoidan helps lower cholesterol. The results show that fucoidan lowers serum lipid levels through modulating SREBP-2, which in turn controls the expression of crucial liver enzymes involved in the synthesis of cholesterol and triglycerides. Reference
Does L-Arginine help lower cholesterol? Recent research indicates that L-arginine may improve cholesterol, blood vessel health overall, and blood pressure. Reference
Other factors impact cholesterol levels these include:
- Trans fats, it is important to avoid them
- Omega 3 fats in the diet, increase Omega 3 in your diet
- Amount of Omega 6 in your diet, reduce Omega 6
- Simple Sugars and lack of fiber. Reduce simple sugars and increase fiber
- Lack of of exercise. Exercise and maintain a healthy weight
- Supplement may help, use natural ingredients to support your body
- Lastly, your genetic profile.
Based on this, I personally follow the above steps in addition to taking the following Sisel Supplements, Eternity with Resveratrol, SpectraMaxx multivitamin and mineral liquid supplement, Fucoydon with the ingredient fucoidan, SupraOmega Plus with EFAs, 4Restore with L-Arginine, and the Sisel AGE Pill with niacin.
