A Short Recap About Good And Bad Cholesterol

Cholesterol - The Good - The Bad - And What Is Healthy

There are basically two kinds of cholesterol HDL and LDL.

HDL (high density lipoprotein) is a very beneficial cholesterol because it carries the fat through the blood and prevents it from being deposited on the arteries.

Bad cholesterol is known as LDL or low density lipoprotein, and it’s quite often brought on by poor eating habits and stress.

But age, gender, and genetics also play an important role, along with weight, diet and activity level.

Elevated LDL causes fatty deposits to accumulate on arteries and blood vessels and this restricts the movement of blood, which in turn causes high blood pressure.

High blood pressure can lead to coronary heart disease, which is often a precursor to heart attacks and/or strokes.
