Cholesterol in small quantities is necessary for the body to function properly, but the liver is able to synthesize about 1,000 mg of cholesterol a day, which is all the body needs.
However, because cholesterol is found in animal products- meat, fish, shellfish, egg yolks, and dairy products-people also get cholesterol through their diet, and too much cholesterol can be harmful.
High cholesterol can be inherited, but it’s often the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices, and thus preventable and treatable. A healthy diet, regular exercise and sometimes medication can go a long way toward reducing high cholesterol.
High cholesterol has no symptoms. A blood test is the only way to detect high cholesterol. It can cause atherosclerosis, a dangerous accumulation of cholesterol and other deposits on the walls of your arteries.
These deposits (plaques) can reduce blood flow through your arteries, which can cause complications, such as: chest pain, heart attack or stroke.
Try to regulate their levels in the blood with the help of this homemade green drink.
