High Cholesterol? Prevention Is Better Than Treatment

Filed Under: Supplements at 4:10 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

High cholesterol continues to be an issue for thousands of people in the United States. Recent reports have confirmed that most people only act to treat cholesterol after being diagnosed with high cholesterol.

Preventing unbalanced cholesterol is easier than most people think. A couple self care steps can prevent high amounts of LDL, the bad cholesterol, responsible for clogging arteries and eventually blocking blood flow. A well-balanced diet and moderate exercise is all you need to maintain healthy levels. Additionally, improving HDL levels, considered the good cholesterol, can decrease the risk of heart disease.

Natural supplements can help to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Fish oil supplements have been successfully used to lower LDL levels for years. An average of 1200mg of fish oil daily can significantly help most people. However, if fish oil isn’t enough to reduce high LDL levels, a couple of other natural supplements may help you.

Coenzyme Q10 has been used to support overall health for many years. The human body normally produces CoQ10 but as we age production declines significantly. An average of 30mg of CoQ10 a day can support healthy cholesterol levels.

In addition, another supplement may be helpful to fight cholesterol: Red Yeast Rice. This natural and safe-to-use herbal supplement has become popular in recent years and can be taken in association with fish oil and CoQ10. An average of 600mg of red yeast rice should be sufficient to support most cases of high cholesterol.

Battling high cholesterol is easier than you think. Start with a healthy diet, look for foods to support cholesterol (yes, Cheerios are good) and try to stay away from high cholesterol foods. Exercise frequently but nothing too intense is necessary. Daily walks and light jogging can do wonders for your health.
