Cholesterol Treatment with Best Ayurvedic Herbal Medicines
Cholesterol is a lipid fat which is produced by the liver and is very important for normal body functioning. Cholesterol exists in the outer layer of every cell in our body and has too many functions, such as it builds and maintains cell membranes, prevents crystallization of hydrocarbons in the membrane etc. Cholesterol is carried in the blood by molecules called 'lipoproteins'. The amount of cholesterol in human blood can vary from person to person. High cholesterol levels can cause atherosclerosis, higher coronary heart disease risk etc. Heart attack occurs when both the supply of blood and oxygen to heart muscle is blocked. Formation of a clot in the coronary artery can lead the heart muscle to die. High cholesterol also leads to angina (chest pain) and other diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
Symptoms of high cholesterol are revealed on account of atherosclerosis, narrowed coronary arteries in the heart i.e. angina, leg pain, blood clots, ruptured blood vessels, thick yellow patches on the skin etc.

Foods high in saturated fats such as red meat, sausages, hard cheese, pastry, cakes and cream also increase the cholesterol level in blood. Sedentary lifestyle and people who do not exercise and spend most of their time sitting, have significantly higher levels of bad cholesterol. People who are overweight are much more likely to have higher cholesterol. Smoking too has a considerable effect on cholesterol levels. People, who consume too much alcohol regularly, generally have much higher levels of cholesterol.
Cholesterol levels can be measured by means of a simple blood test. The blood sample is tested for cholesterol level and blood triglyceride levels. Some people can generally get their cholesterol and triglyceride levels back to normal by doing plenty of exercise, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, avoiding foods with saturated fats, getting plenty of sleep, bringing bodyweight back to normal and totally avoiding alcohol & smoking.
