You might know it for all the bad reasons, but cholesterol is actually an important biochemical produced in the liver. It plays various essential biochemical roles in the body, including maintaining cell membrane permeability, as well as the synthesis of bile acids, vitamin D, and steroid hormones. When cholesterol levels are too high in the body, however, it increases the risk of cardiovascular issues such as arterial plaques and heart disease. For these and more reasons, it is important to keep your cholesterol levels low for optimal heart health and cardiovascular function.

I often encounter people  who do not realize how important or life changing taking the correct supplements can be for their health.  Many MD's will not encourage or suggest them because they were not trained on supplements in medical school.  The fact is an MD is trained in Pharmacology.  Hence, they prescibe medications to treat patients. that makes sense.  Patients trust the Doc, they go to the Doc and the Doc gives them medicine......

I went for another test on my cholesterol last week and all my numbers are looking better.  My LDL is up a little so I still have to work on that.  High cholesterol does run in my family so it is something I have to be aware of every day.  I'm doing everything possible to lower LDL but it is resisting.  I have been more active with yard work and am looking to add riding my bike outside to the mix of activities.  I think if I lose maybe 5 more pounds, that will help the LDL.  Being tall, I don't want to lose too much weight because then I would look sick
