Understanding Cholesterol

Cholesterol - is made by the liver but also contained in some of the foods

What is Cholesterol? 

Cholesterol is a type of fat which is made by the liver but also contained in some of the foods we eat. It is vital to have cholesterol for your body to function properly, the problem comes when you have high levels of “bad” cholesterol. High cholesterol in itself does not cause you to be ill, but it is the biggest risk factor for coronary heart disease, and also increases the risk of having a stroke. 

How can Cholesterol affect me?

“Bad cholesterol” (LDL) carries cholesterol from your liver to the cells that need it. However if you have more than is needed it can build up on the walls of your blood cells. “Good cholesterol” (HDL) carries excess cholesterol away from the cells and back to the liver to be destroyed or broken down. Therefore you want high levels of “good cholesterol” and low levels of “bad cholesterol”.

How to lower cholesterol
Fortunately you don't need to understand the science to keep your cholesterol low, or to reduce it if it is already high. One of the best ways of keeping your cholesterol low is to have a healthy diet; lean meats and fish, plenty of vegetables and fruit, and whole grains. By avoiding foods that are high in saturated fats you can help prevent high cholesterol. Exercise and giving up smoking can also help reduce your risk.

If you know you could benefit from losing a little weight, but can find it difficult to cut out those fatty products, a fat binder pill may help. Fat binders work by absorbing the fat in your food and passing it straight through your body, so that your body doesn't absorb and store the fat. Your body also then burns existing fat deposits for energy, from areas such as your stomach, bottom or thighs, helping you to lose weight.
