Let’s talk lipids...... Now when we are talking about fats most people want to talk about cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that’s necessary for building cells.Knowing the difference of what is bad cholesterol and good is the interesting part. There are a few different varieties and the effects they have in the body are great for your health, and in some ways absolutely terrible. First let’s talk about one that not many know of and that’s VLDL, which stands for Very Low Density Lipids. It’s created in your liver from fats in your diet. Now these carry cholesterol and triglycerides through your bloodstream. High levels of triglycerides are linked to the build-up of hard deposits in your arteries, called plaque. This is why it is mindful to keep these under good control. Now let’s talk about LDL. Now the VLDL has a large amount cleared from the bloodstream, the rest is transformed into LDL by enzymes in the blood. LDL has less triglycerides and a higher percentage of cholesterol than VLDL. But still these are rather dangerous and you also run the risk of high triglycerides and hardening of the arteries. That leaves us with the most common and well known. HDL, this is fantastic for removing harmful bad cholesterol from where it doesn't belong. In general, people with high HDL are at lower risk for heart disease. People with low HDL are at higher risk. So the main goal is to keep your HDL’s high and keep the other 2 low. - Choose healthier fats. Saturated fats, found primarily in red meat and dairy products, raise your total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol. - Eliminate trans fats. - Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. - Increase soluble fiber. So give these a shot and aim to keep those HDL levels high. Any questions shoot in the comment section below.
