High Cholesterol Explained, Briefly

Let us begin by explaining some terminologies:

Cholesterol is a waxy substance, that is found is every cell in your body. Your body makes cholesterol - mainly in the liver. You can also get cholesterol from certain types of food.

Cholesterol moves in your body via the blood stream, in "mini" packages.These "mini" packages are called lipoproteins.

There are 2 types of lipoproteins - low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Within these types, there are also sub-types, such as HDL-2, HDL-3, LDL-A and LDL-B.

High cholesterol levels itself is not an health issue, but the inability of the body to get rid of excessive cholesterol in the blood stream (such as due to an unhealthy liver, or "thick" blood") and the oxidation of these cholesterol left in the arteries, leading to the formation of plagues, that will then leads to narrowing of arteries, or hardening of arteries and internal organs, that causes the health issues, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.

Degeneration and Free Radicals

Free Radicals are the culprit of degeneration of the blood lipids as well as the cells of the arteries and cells of the internal organs.

In the case of high (bad) cholesterol related health issues, it's the combination of Free Radicals and oxidation of high (bad) cholesterol.

Generally a combination of the factors below (there are also other factors not listed here), puts an individual of high risk of oxidised cholesterol related health issues:

  • smoking
  • unhealthy food that is high in the "bad" fats
  • too sedentary a life-style - and in combination with a high fat diet, lead to storing of fats in the body.

Signs of High Risks Individuals

These are some of the signs of high risks individuals that may have "high (bad) cholesterol" related health issues:

  • obesity
  • a large waist circumference (over 40 inches for men or over 35 inches for women)
  • lack of regular exercise

High Cholesterol issue could be hereditary - a genetic mutation that causes the liver's inability or reduced ability to remove LDL from the blood stream. The excessive LDL circulates the blood, and risks oxidation that leads to formation of plague.

Improve General Health is Your Best Defence

If just having high cholesterol isn't the "real" health issue, then here are some of the things we should be looking at, to ensure that the related health issues do not develop:

  • liver health - keep it healthy and keep it from degenerating before its time, or better still keep it at optimal health. A healthy liver is able to help remove excessive cholesterol from the blood stream. (Liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself ... IF we give it the help it needs.)
  • arteries health - again, help keep it from degenerative diseases, that lead to its hardening, and keep plague formation at bay, or better still, ensure there is no plague formation.
  • keep other internal organs healthy,  and keep them from degenerating before their time, or better still keep them at optimal health.
  • we need cholesterol, but we need to make sure we have plenty of the good cholesterol, and we need to ensure that the excessive (bad) cholesterol is removed from the blood stream, and taken to the liver for disposal. This will help prevention of formation of plague.
  • ensure sufficient antioxidants in the body to prevent oxidation of cholesterol and, degeneration of arteries and internal organs.
