If you are searching for Cholesterol-Lowering Home Remedies then either you or your loved one is probably diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia which in common terms is known as high cholesterol.
What is High Cholesterol?
High cholesterol is a bit tricky to understand for the non-medical population, which is why I am trying my best to break down all these complex medical facts into effortless, clear and simple info. Cholesterol is something that all of us normally have in our bodies but high cholesterol denotes that the amount exceeds normal limits.
This cholesterol is a waxy substance that helps many critical physiological functions within our body, for instance, the production of Vitamin D, male and female hormones and of course in the effective digestion of food that we intake.
Do High Cholesterol Numbers Mean Danger?
Before you get confused let me quickly explain that cholesterol is basically of 2 types: good and bad. Good cholesterol is known as HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and the bad one is termed LDL (low-density lipoprotein). So the bottom line is that you have a problem only when your high cholesterol numbers are due to the increased amount of the bad cholesterol (LDL). It is a privilege and blessing to have high cholesterol numbers in the HDL department because these good guys actually protect your heart and health.
Home Remedies has a wonderful role to play in managing all of the health disorders, but especially in chronic conditions like high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disorders, high blood pressure, etc. If you have high cholesterol, then I recommend that you use home remedies either as your primary cholesterol medicine or as a complement along with your regular cholesterol-lowering drugs.
The regular cholesterol-lowering drugs will only help in bringing down the bad cholesterol levels, but the right medicine will help in lowering your bad cholesterol levels, encourage the production of good cholesterol and of course prevent secondary development of other life-threatening disorders.
