Get Rid of Cholesterol problems

Jun-2017 By Admin Deals & Promotions

What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘cholesterol’? Heart attack? Diabetes? Stroke?

 

 If so, you’re not far off the mark. All these are possible risks of having ‘high cholesterol’. In most cases high cholesterol is a warning signal. But first, let’s take a step backwards, and examine just what cholesterol is.

Cholesterol is an oil based substance that is found in the cells in your body. You actually need cholesterol – to aid digestion; and to make hormones and Vitamin D. Cholesterol also contributes to the structure of cell walls. Your blood moves the cholesterol through your body via tiny packages called lipoproteins. Low density lipoproteins or LDL is bad cholesterol. High density lipoproteins or HDL is good cholesterol.


Yoga reduces cholesterol levels by addressing various related issues. Regular practice of yoga asanas coupled with pranayama, meditation and a sensible diet can raise HDL and lower LDL.
