High Cholesterol and Heart Disease?… Fix It!!!

       Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men. http://www.cdc.gov and http://www.heartandstroke.com

       High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

By lowering your cholesterol, you can dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. High cholesterol can lead to a buildup of plaque in the artery walls, narrowing your arteries, a condition called atherosclerosis. It can make it more difficult for blood to flow through your heart and body, putting you at increased risk of circulatory problems, heart disease and stroke.

Cholesterol seems to become problematic after it becomes oxidized. Once it becomes oxidized, it becomes sticky and forms a plaque that sticks to your artery lining, which sets off a chain reaction.


With adding heart benefits derived from plant sterols (which studies suggest play a key factor in lowering cholesterol) and resveratrol, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels has never been easier.
