High cholesterol is generally considered to be bad. It clogs up arteries and causes strokes and heart attacks.
A study from the New York University in the journal Circulation has however revealed a scene where high cholesterol is actually beneficial.
The consensus is that people with diabetes are more likely to have atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries because of a plaque buildup. This buildup is almost always caused by high LDL cholesterol, which is why it has been nicknamed the “bad cholesterol”.
This makes people with diabetes the hardest group in which to lower cholesterol, as they are already unusually prone to it.
Scientists believe HDL cholesterol (AKA the “good” stuff) removes LDL from our blood streams to the liver, from where it is broken down and then expelled from our bodies.
But in people with high blood sugar, like diabetics, the proteins and fats related to the high blood sugar reduces the type of HDL, called functional HDL, which actually removes LDL from our blood streams.
Mice with raised functional HDL were used in a new study to see whether their LDL could be reduced, and subsequently the risk of atherosclerosis risk.
Surprisingly, the LDL levels in the mice were much lower, but they also discovered more.
The increase in functional HDL reversed the atherosclerotic disease processes by 30 percent compared to the cholesterol-lowering drugs that the mice were already receiving.
This was not just because the HDL removed the LDL to the mice’s livers, but also because the HDL proved effective at reducing inflammation, which causes cholesterol-driven damage to our arteries.
So, by lowering inflammation inside the mice’s cholesterol plaque, the scientists reversed the main process that makes atherosclerosis so dangerous.
Increase HDL by adding plenty of fish, olive oil, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, flaxseed, chia seeds, coconut oil, and purple fruits and vegetables to your diet. Also, to be effective, it’s necessary to stop smoking, eliminate trans fats and refined carbohydrates from your diet, exercise daily, and avoiding ready-made packaged and canned foods.
What Next? Heart disease can be reversed in 3 Weeks Naturally – Doctors reveal *PROOF*
Contrary to what you have been told, its possible to completely reverse your heart disease, and normalize your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, without drugs, pills, or dangerous surgery. Watch this video to learn more “The Heart Disease Breakthrough your doctor won’t tell you about“.
Groundbreaking research published by the University of Kentucky, University of California and Newscastle University proves that you can reverse heart disease, lose weight, normalize blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and end the need for medication or surgery. But this information has been kept secret by the billion dollar drug industry.
Doctors at the International Truth in Medicine Council are revealing the truth about heart disease that has been suppressed for 2 decades.
Last year they helped over 127,542 people reverse disease, lose weight, and end the need for dangerous drugs, hospital visits, or deadly surgery.
This year they’re on track to help over 300,000. Will you be one of them?
Dr. Dean Ornish wrote: “On our program, even severely blocked arteries in the heart became less blocked, and there was even more reversal. That’s compared with other patients in our study, in which the heart just got worse and worse.”
In just a few weeks, their test patients were able to completely reverse artery plaque, lower their cholesterol levels, normalize blood pressure, shed up to 14 lbs. of weight in just a few weeks, completely stop their medication, and most were cleared healthy by their doctors within the first few months.
These findings are unbelievable, and the incredible thing is that they work on all people with symptoms of heart disease, all without a single pill, medications or workout.
