High blood cholesterol; has this silent killer got your number?

Saturday, February 4, 2012

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. High blood cholesterol is killing millions of people across the globe, yet it need not be so.

High blood cholesterol is one of the main reasons people suffer and die from heart attacks. And what makes high blood cholesterol so dangerous is its' insidious nature. There are no known symptoms alerting sufferers to the fact that they have this potentially fatal disease and often a heart attack or stroke is the first a person knows of it, but then its too late.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the fats(lipids) in your blood. Your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells but if you have too much cholesterol in your bloodstream, fatty deposits begin to build up in your blood vessels. Over time these increasing deposits make it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries thus robbing your heart of the oxygen-rich blood it needs to function properly, putting you in danger of having a heart attack. Similarly, high blood cholesterol can also cause a decrease of blood flow to the brain, which may result in a stroke.

How do you know if you have high blood cholesterol then and are there cures or preventative measures that can be taken to avert this disease? The answer to this is thankfully a positive one. A simple blood test known as a lipoprotein profile, which measures your cholesterol numbers, will indicate whether or not you have to worry about your cholesterol levels.

However, it is advised that from the age of 20 everyone should have their cholesterol levels measured once every 5 years, especially for those people who come from a family who have a history of early heart disease(men before the age of 55, woman before the age of 65).

If you find out that you do have higher than normal levels of cholesterol, don't panic, much can be done to stop any further damage and to reduce your cholesterol levels. One way is to change your lifestyle, adding a regimen of regular moderate exercise, making sure that you are eating a healthy balanced diet and cutting out cholesterol high foods and by supplementing your diet with a herbal remedy.

One such herbal remedy is di-BTRIM, which consists of 100% natural herbs and ingredients, specifically formulated to help people at risk of high blood cholesterol keep their cholesterol levels down. One of the ingredients in di-BTRIM, Radix Astragalus Membranaceus, is particularly well known in the treatment of high blood cholesterol. In a recent study, an 82.6% EKG improvement was reported in a study of 92 patients with ischemic heart disease, a remarkable success rate.

The other herbs in di-BTRIM promote general well-being and better functioning of other organs as well as increased blood flow. Of particular interest is the fact that di-BTRIM is purported to increase the release of Adult Stem Cells, which are now known as the body's natural healing system, from the bone marrow to needy organs and tissues.

Other things to do to lower your blood cholesterol levels include quitting smoking, refraining from taking drugs and loosing weight if overweight. Cutting stress triggers from your lifestyle is also important in the fight against high blood cholesterol.
