Know about Cholesterol High

Cholesterol High:

CholesterolCholesterol is a type of fat (lipid) in your blood. Your cells need cholesterol, and your body makes all it needs. But you also get cholesterol from the food you eat.

If you have too much cholesterol, it starts to build up in your arteries. (Arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart.) This is called hardening of the arteries, or atherosclerosis . It is usually a slow process that gets worse as you get older.

To understand what happens, think about how a clog forms in the pipe under a kitchen sink. Like the buildup of grease in the pipe, the buildup of cholesterol narrows your arteries and makes it harder for blood to flow through them. It reduces the amount of blood that gets to your body tissues, including your heart. This can lead to serious problems, including heart attack and stroke.

Symptoms

High cholesterol usually has no signs or symptoms. Thus, many people don't know that their cholesterol levels are too high.

How can I know if I have High cholesterol?

You need a blood test to check your cholesterol. There are several kinds of tests:
  • A fasting cholesterol test is the most complete test because it measures all of the fats in your blood, including LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
  • A direct LDL test measures your LDL level only.
  • A simple cholesterol test can measure total cholesterol and HDL.

Ayurvedic Cure

  • Boil water with 2 tsp coriander seed. Strain and drink this water twice daily. It helps reduce cholesterol, flushes out toxins, and improves digestion.
  • Guggulu (Commiphora mukul) is effective in lowering cholesterol. Buy it from any reputed Ayurvedic store and use it as per instructions on the container.
  • Grill 1 or 2 small cloves of garlic and take it daily with your main meal.
  • Take 1 to 2 capsules per day of Arjun (Terminalia arjuna) extract available in a capsule form. Arjun is rich in co-enzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) that helps lower LDL cholesterol and enhances HDL recovery.
