Tips to Reduce Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fat-like substance which is present in all the cells of your body. Not all cholesterol is bad; good cholesterol is also necessary for our body to make vitamin D, hormones and substances which help our body to digest the food. Cholesterol is insoluble in water just like fat; it's transported in the body with the help of lipoproteins, these lipoprotein molecules carry cholesterol, fat and fat-soluble vitamins in blood.

There are three types of cholesterol of which only HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein) is the good cholesterol that carries back the cholesterol from other parts of the body to the liver. Then, the liver removes the extra cholesterol from the body. Here are a few tips to reduce cholesterol, you can follow to lower the risks of accumulating bad cholesterol in the body.

Healthy diet

Include foods in your daily diet that can keep your body and heart healthy. Consume less saturated fats and trans-fats, less consumption of these fats will also lower bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) in your body. Eat food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, a soluble fibre which reduces blood pressure and also reduces cholesterol absorption. You can also add whey protein to your diet.

Regular Exercise

Exercising regularly or even moderate physical activities increase good cholesterol in your body. Even a brisk daily walk or playing your favourite sport for 20-30 minutes would be sufficient.

Quit Smoking

Smoking is dangerous for the lungs; it increases bad cholesterol in the body. When you quit smoking the good cholesterol levels, improve, and its benefits will be visible from the very first day. Within the first 20 minutes post smoking, the heart rate and blood pressure recover from the spike induced because of smoking. When you quit smoking, within three months, the blood circulation is improvised, and lungs function better comparatively. Within a year of not smoking, the risk of heart disease is reduced to 50% than that of a smoker.

Reduce Extra Pounds of Fat

Cholesterol is a fat-carrying molecule; higher the fat, higher the cholesterol which may eventually lead to heart diseases, corpulence etc. Reduce the excess fat around your body by making minor changes in your diet and exercising for around 20-30 minutes a day. Keeping track of the daily calorie intake may also help you keep a check upon the cholesterol level in your body.

Less Alcohol Consumption

Too much of alcohol consumption leads to serious health problems like strokes, heart failure, high blood pressure. Due to this reason, it is advisable to consume alcohol in moderate to less quantity.

You can consider availing health tips from doctors, dieticians and stay fit and healthy. In case of increased level of cholesterol, it is advisable to visit the doctor and take necessary medications, to live a healthy and happy life. You can also consider taking health insurance so that in the time of medical emergencies you need not stress about finance and can focus entirely on your health.
