Cholesterol is a fat or lipid present in nearly every cell of your body. Interestingly, you’ll find about 25%of your body’s cholesterol in your brain. Cholesterol is made primarily in your liver and serves many important functions, such as making hormones and vitamin D, building cellular walls, and supporting healthy digestion by helping to produce bile.

 

If there’s too much cholesterol in your blood, especially LDL, it can start to accumulate on your artery walls as a waxy substance called plaque. As more plaque builds up, your arteries become narrower and can clog. This makes it difficult for your blood to keep flowing through them. A complete blockage of your arteries with plaque can lead to a blood clot, a stroke, or a heart attack.

 

Having high LDL cholesterol levels in your blood is linked to a higher risk for heart disease, as is having a low level of HDL cholesterol.

 

Having high blood levels of LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol may lead to other negative consequences in your body, such as an increased risk for gallstones, nerve issues (especially if you have diabetes), and increased risk for dementia. You can test your blood cholesterol levels through a standard blood test. The American Heart Association recommends that adults have their cholesterol numbers checked at least every 4-6 years starting around age 20.

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 102 million adults in the U.S. have total cholesterol levels at or above 200 mg/dL, which is above healthy levels.

 

There are a number of factors that may cause your LDL cholesterol to rise and stay high over time.

Saturated fat intake can increase your LDL cholesterol levels. Food containing saturated fat include dairy products, meat, poultry, seafood and, coconut, palm oil, and many baked goods, fried foods, and fast food items.

 

Your genetic makeup may also put you at a higher risk of having higher than desired cholesterol levels. In other words, if you have a family history of high LDL cholesterol, it’s possible that there may be some DNA-related reasons for this. Around 10-15% of the population are “hyper-absorbers” of dietary cholesterol, for instance. Keep in mind that if you do have a genetic predisposition towards elevated LDL cholesterol levels, this doesn’t mean it’s out of your control. It just means that you may need to pay more attention and that you have a lot to gain from optimized diet and exercise habits.

 

Other factors that may raise your cholesterol include:

  • Advancing age
  • Being male
  • Being a female post menopause
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Inactivity
  • Smoking
  • Taking certain medications (such as birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, steroids, and blood pressure medications such as beta-blockers and diuretics)

 

Many patients with high cholesterol take cholesterol-lowering medications, known as "statins." Although statins effectively reduce cholesterol in the blood, some people who use them experience side effects, including muscle-related issues, diabetes, and an elevated risk for stroke. Lowering cholesterol naturally using Herbabox Cholesterol  allows patients to avoid or reduce medication.
