Cholesterol and cardiovascular risk
Did you know that cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes a mortality of 4 million people in Europe each year? Women represent 55% and men 45% of this number, although deaths associated with cardiovascular events under the age of 65 are more common in men.
Bad cholesterol (LDL) and good cholesterol (HDL) – h3
LDL or low-density lipoprotein is commonly called ” bad cholesterol “. This is due to the fact that the higher the amount of LDL present in the blood, the higher the risk of accumulation in the arteries, causing atherosclerotic plaques that contribute to vascular diseases.
HDL or high-density lipoproteins are known as “good cholesterol”, as they carry the cholesterol stored in the plaque to the liver, from where it is removed through the bile and intestine.
What happens if I have high bad cholesterol (LDL)?
LDL-cholesterol is stored in the walls of the arteries, causing atheromatous plaques that can obstruct normal blood flow. When these plaques break off and move into the systemic circulation, they can block small arteries or capillaries, increasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
This disorder is called atherosclerosis and is caused by ageing, genetic predisposition and lifestyle. Eating a diet low in saturated and trans fats, regular exercise and not smoking are some of the factors that can help keep LDL in check.
How do I know if my good cholesterol (HDL) is high?
Cardiovascular risk is measured by a number of indicators, including HDL; however, it must be evaluated along with other clinical measurements by a doctor. It is not only the serum quantity of HDL that is important, but also the quality of these lipoproteins, which among other factors is also genetically determined.
How does red yeast rice lower cholesterol?
Red Yeast Rice is obtained by fermenting the yeast, Monascus purpureus, on rice. Scientific evidence suggests that monacolin from Red Yeast Rice may support a normal lipid profile. Also, red yeast rice contains sterols, isoflavones and monounsaturated fatty acids, which support cardiovascular wellbeing.
