The natural way to control cholesterol levels

Cholesterol is an important building stone of life, needed for the building of cell membranes and hormones.  If however our cholesterol level passes certain limits it becomes a health problem, a problem that already affects millions of people.  Many of those have to take a daily dose of medicines (to lower their blood lipid level).  Too much cholesterol damages the blood vessels and causes narrowing of the vessels which in their turn obstruct the blood flow.  One consequence is an inadequate supply of nourishment to the body tissues and organs, a risk factor that endangers the general feeling of well being and quickens the ageing process.

Cholesterol comes both from our food and from our own body's production.  In fact, almost all our cells can produce cholesterol, which means that an additional intake through food is only relatively rarely needed.  The body takes care that with a healthy diet the cholesterol level stays within normal limits.  Unsaturated fatty acids take care of the removal of superfluous cholesterol and thus prevent a deposition of cholesterol on the walls of the blood vessels.

With their daily food the Greenland Eskimos take in about 14 gr of fish oil and they, unlike us, do not suffer from arteriosclerosis.  The high daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids that are contained in fish oil is, in the unanimous opinion of scientists, the cause of this striking difference.  These fatty substances act in different places in the body and prevent reactions that might be damaging to health.

In the course of the last 20 years many scientific studies have been carried out on the beneficial effects of Omega-3 fatty acids on the metabolism.  For example: salmon oil, if taken over a longer period, will break down cholesterol, protects against arteriosclerosis, improves the elasticity of the blood vessels, protects against disturbances of the vessels in case of diabetes, kidney problems, rheumatism and gout, lowers high blood pressure and decreases psoriasis (dandruff-like infections) of the skin and diseases of the bronchial tube.

Recommendations for significantly lowering the risk of excessive cholesterol:

A lower intake of animal fats and oils; in its place a diet that is rich in ballast, a lot of vegetables, physical exercise and intake of salmon oil - the natural way to lower lipin levels.
