Supplements to Lower Triglycerides and Cholesterol

Cholesterol and triglycerides are one of the three major constituents of our body. Below you’ll find the best supplements to lower triglycerides and cholesterol.

Except from the energy they provide, they are used by our body daily to produce hormones (cortisone, thyroid hormones)and they are a key component of cell membranes (phospholipids) and help absorb fat and fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) from the intestine. Triglycerides can come from food or synthesized by our body. In food they are the main type of lipids and appear as saturated fatty acids (animal fat), monounsaturated (olive oil) or polyunsaturated (vegetable oils and fish oils). Cholesterol is ingested from food but is largely synthesized in the liver. Lipids are, as fatty substances, insoluble in water and therefore circulate in the blood bound to proteins and form lipoproteins. The best known of these are chylomicrons, which contain mainly 80-95% triglycerides, HDL (high density lipoprotein) or otherwise good cholesterol, which contains mainly 25% protein and cholesterol, and LDL (low density lipoprotein), commonly called bad cholesterol, which contains 50% cholesterol and 15% triglycerides. LDL serves as a donor of cholesterol to the tissues (muscles, kidneys, adrenal glands), while the excess is deposited in the endothelium of blood vessels and mobilizes the inflammatory process (atherosclerosis). HDL removes excess cholesterol from the tissues and this explains its protective (anti-atheromatogenic) action.

How cholesterol works

Elevated blood cholesterol levels due to poor nutrition or heredity have been shown to promote the blockage of small blood vessels in the heart and brain and have been blamed for coronary heart disease and stroke. Its detrimental effect on the vessels of the eye and the kidney is similar. In addition, hyperlipidemia is a major cause of fatty infiltration of the liver and pancreas. Finally, elevated triglyceride levels can cause acute pancreatitis, a life-threatening condition. Cholesterol control is therefore essential for the primary prevention of vascular disease and for maintaining good health.

Cholesterol testing should be done with blood tests in all men over 35 and women over 45 who have no other risk factors for coronary heart disease (hypertension, diabetes, smoking, hereditary history, stress). If there are other risk factors, the test should start at age 30 in men and age 35 in women and be done every year.

Reduce your cholesterol and triglycerides immediately, fast and effectively. At Fotopharmacy, look for specialized supplements with natural ingredients which work as a natural cholesterol regulator in the blood and help keep it under control.
