High Cholesterol

High Cholesterol

Many people do not want to take medications for their elevated cholesterol and elevated triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn't need to use right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly "easy" calories like carbohydrates and fats, you may have high triglycerides.

Physicians seem to be more and more pessimistic about the patient's ability to lower their cholesterol and triglyceride levels on their own. Most will agree to allow patients a chance to lower their cholesterol on their own; however more and more physicians are simply just prescribing medication.

Nutritional Supplement Recommendations - How to start?

For those who would like to try it out, begin with a modest exercise program and a balanced diet. By eating a balanced diet that does not spike the blood sugar, you are able to improve insulin resistance and lower both triglyceride and cholesterol. As for exercise, it's good to have a nice balance between aerobics and weight bearing exercise. This type of program will improve insulin resistance. The total cholesterol will decrease, the triglyceride level will decrease, and HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) will increase. For nutritional supplementation we are recommending USANA Nutritional Supplements.

Daily Intake
1 each Essentials (AO Pro + Chelated Mineral)
1 BiOmega III Plus
1 tbsp Fibergy
2 CoQuinone
3 Proflavanol
4 Active Calcium

This regime will not only allow you to lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, but it will also protect you against elevated homocysteine levels and oxidized LDL cholesterol. Many people and physicians simply want to take the easy way out and just use drugs. In doing so, they miss the true underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, which is inflammation.

Case Studies

Case 1: Lim has a cholesterol of 289, HDL 53, Triglycerides 316 and LDL 173. After 13 weeks of the recomendation stated above, his cholesterol dropped to 258, HDL 45, Triglycerides 314 and LDL 150. Then he continued with the lean exercise program in addition to taking the supplements. In 3 months time his readings are cholesterol 213, HDL 63, Triglycerides 121 and LDL 126. He also lost 17 pounds, what a great achievement.

* HDL = Good Cholesterol

Case 2: Ahmad is 41 years old. He has no complaints and just wanted a good physical. After one of regular check up, he was told that he has high cholesterol and triglyceride. His blood was pink and after the blood had been spun down, the upper layer looked like cream. His cholesterol was 250 and triglyceride were 1220 (normal should be less than 150). He was then started on the lean exercise program and the nutritional supplementation as recommended above. He was not on any medication. After 12 weeks, his cholesterol dropped to 150 and tryglycerides down to 102. His good cholesterol actually increased from 30 to 38.
