They speak badly of him, and think worse. There are many myths about him. Its present in every cell of our body, its dangerous, but without it is impossible. Every year millions of people die from it. Billions of dollars are spent on fighting him. Why is he indispensable, and why is he a deadly killer? What is cholesterol and what is it dangerous with?
Cholesterol is a vital “component” of our body. It is the main building material, because it provides strength and elasticity to all the cell membranes. Cholesterol is a necessary component of the synthesis of cortisone, sex hormones and vitamin D. Cholesterol molecules are involved in the functioning of the nervous and immune systems.
Many probably heard about the so-called bad and good cholesterol. However, cholesterol is the same cholesterol even in Africa and the saturated fatty acids that overfill our food make it bad. Saturated fats (such as palm oil), which are very rich in our confectionery, fast foods and processed foods, get into the blood, bind to cholesterol and form low density lipoproteins. Saturated acids are also found in dairy products, cheeses and fatty meats.
Such cholesterol is deposited on the internal organs and walls of blood vessels in the form of cholesterol plaques. In the future, this threatens cardiovascular ailments. One of the risk factors for vascular damage that can be effectively treated is dyslipidemia. Dyslipidemia is a high level of lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides or both) or low cholesterol of high density lipoproteins (HDL). It is the main cause of the most dangerous diseases of the cardiovascular system, provoking the development of atherosclerosis – a disease that is the leading medical problem of our time. Dyslipidemia itself is usually asymptomatic, but it can lead to vascular damage, including coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. Almost 40% of adults suffer from dyslipidemia.
Prevention and treatment of dyslipidemia is based on lifestyle changes as diet and medications. It is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle, give up bad habits (smoking, alcohol, fast food), maintain your weight, have a balanced diet and do not forget about regular physical activity. One of the important factors in the complex treatment of dyslipidemia is the use of the biological supplement “Spiruvit”. Due to its natural components the supplement helps to improve the metabolic state and reduce total cholesterol, as well as to reduce the excess accumulation of fats in the body. It has been proven effective in the prevention and treatment of major significant cardiovascular diseases caused by dyslipidemia.
